    I have a nicely bricked DX, I get this:

    Bootloader
    29.01
    Err: A5,70,70,00,1F


    MEM_MAP Blank
    Service Req'd
    *Flashing* Battery Low
    *Flashing* Cannot Program


    Anyone else ever get this?

    What was your battery level prior to doing this. never try to do anything with less that 40% is a good rule of thumb. Just let it sit on the charger for a good time I had this problem once and it fixed it. Was then able to boot into recovery.

    Mine wouldn't charge in that state, can you charge the battery in a different phone or external charger?

    Well mine wouldn't really either. I was scared $hitless. But I left the phone on the charger overnight and the next day it was able to boot into recovery. May have just been a fluke though.

    Yes you can charge the battery in another droid x or a wall charger. There is also a way to splice a spare USB cable so it will charge the battery and trick the phone into thinking it has a fully charged battery.

    I was on with customer service for a while they cannot overnight a new device I asked if a manager could do it, the guy was very apologetic and said they could do nothing.

    Here is the sequence of events.
    Today 1pm I get new phone, open box, assemble phone, turn phone on, activate phone, setup google shenanigans and facebook, then I DL dolphin browser, set it up to cache to SD card, then I decide to receive update, I click update. Then the phone looks like it doing what it needs to then just boots to the giant M logo. I then take it to the main store near me, they try for about 1.5 hours to make my phone work, then they say we can't do anything.

    Now the phone sits like it does. Expensive and fancy paperweight.

    Ok tried charging via another device since my mom has the DX, and all it does with the device off and the charger plugged in shows the battery symbol with a question mark.

    I am hoping this is true, then I can call customer service back and say cancel.

    Well I look at everything this way, I can,

    A.) Be in a piss poor mood when something does not go my way or as planned, therefore causing me to have a bad day, and a bad day over something small like a phone or a nail in my tire is just well illogical.

    or

    B.) Continue on my way and just keep my head up cause it will get fixed.

    I should be a motivational speaker, good grief, lol.
