Battery died during SBF and now won't recharge. with usb cable the charge light comes on but after leaving it there over night, the screen would only flash once. With the wall plug the charge light is not on and the bootloader screen says "code corrupt low battery"
Is there any way to charge the battery now?
Is there a safe way to recharge the battery without the phone?
Thanks

Yes the battery needs to be at least 50% (I don't do it less than 100% myself), so you need a friend with an OG Droid (same battery) or a DPro, or an external battery only charger.

ok thanks
I'll see what I can find, Dpro wasn't sold here in Canada so maybe I can find another Droid model.\
I left mine plugged into my pc's usb port today and it did add a lil juice to my battery(bootloader actually shows, but still declares low battery ) so maybe a few more days on here will do it.
I'm just a bit leery since the bootloader had told mt "battery ok" when I got into this mess :(
Thanks again
