    Before I say anything, let me say that I am an idiot, who happens to own the droid X running android 2.2.1: I messed around with it, and messed up about 7 times. I rooted it using Z4Share, fairly straightforward, went perfectly. I wanted to install a custom rom, and chose Tranquility 3.6. This went fine, except that I didn't like it and for some reason (which I still don't understand) it kept shutting off the phone every 3 minutes or so, at random. I decided I wanted to go back to stock and start over again. I flashed it with the droid x 2.1 sbf (using RSD lite 4.8). As I now know, flashing a 2.2 with a 2.1 is a guaranteed brick. what's worse is that I left while my phone was doing this, for several hours. The phone was on my computer and I thought it was charging, I now know phones don't charge while in bootloader. I was left with the following error:
    --
    BOOTLOADER
    30.04
    ERR: A5, 70, 70, 00,1F

    BATTERY LOW
    CANNOT PROGRAM
    --
    I'm downloading the sbf 2.2, and I've plugged my phone into a wallcharger (It's still in bootloader though, so I don't know if it will charge).

    my plan:
    pray that it charges
    if it charges, flash it with the correct sbf till it works or catches fire

    So my questions are:

    1) Is my phone charging
    2) How long will it take before it will charge enough to allow me to "program"/"connect USB" ?
    3) Is there any way to unbrick my phone, or am I in for a trip to verizon?

    or any other comments, advice, beratings, etc...

    Thanks!

    **UPDATE**
    verizon replaced my battery, now the error looks like this:

    Bootloader
    30.04
    Err: A5, 70, 70, 00, 1F

    MEM_MAP Blank
    Service Req'd
    Battery OK
    OK to Program
    Transfer Mode:
    USB

    I've tried flashing it with the droid x 2.2, but it doesn't change. I'll keep trying

    keep the phone off until its ready to be flashed bc you need a good battery and leaving it on in the bootloader is just wasting battery

    Oh and for anyone out there trying to get Tranquility off of their phone completely (I know its a great rom, I guess I messed up the installation, and i've read that other people have the same problems): turn phone off, hold home button while turning phone on, scroll down to factory reset, voila.
