    Hey guys...I was getting everything setup for a 2.2 deodex froyo flash. The last thing i did was remove the logwrapper instead of renaming it. I know this is what screwed me over. Now when I reboot I get stuck on Moto Symbol. For some reason it killed my battery too. I cant SBF because it now says my battery is too low. Before it said that I was getting an error in RSD 4.7 saying something about ini file missing for something. Regardless I cant do anything. It just stays at the moto symbol. If I cant charge my phone wtf am i supposed to do? Put a .zip on my sd card that will fix it? Im stuck...plz help.

    ***EDIT***
    Ok went to the Verizon store this morning, Played dumb and got a new battery (was in the store for 3 minutes) I was surprised by how fast the threw me a new battery. Flashing back with the SBF now. Should be good to go shortly, thanks for all your help guys, I thanked everyone in this post!

    that is the one problem I still don't know how to deal with:(
    Never ever mess with your phone unless it has at least 50% battery
    I guess that doesn't really help you, sorry :(

    You have a couple options.

    First, make sure you've replaced the flash.ini file that is floating around in these forums. That will make sure flashing .sbf works.

    1) Borrow a battery from a friend/coworker/verizon store
    2) If you get a "code corrupt" issue in the bootlader, there's a really ghetto solution that involves stripping a usb cable and connecting it to the battery leads that's also floating around the forums.

    I don't think it's perma-bricked though. Just takes a little more work than usual

    right,right,right,right that is how you do it
    here is rsd lite with the patch Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
    you got to overwrite the one that is on rsd lites program files

    that ghetto solution is pretty scary

    if you get the sbf flashed the charging problem should be fixed
    the .ini file is in the zip folder I posted link to, you just copy it and paste it in
    program files/motorola/rsd lite or something like that and overwrite the one that is already there

    Well Now when I connect it via usb I get a green light. As opposed to no green light through direct wall power. Im assuming its charging the battery, It must be 100% dead. Cant even boot into USB Rsd mode...I hate the waiting game.

    Edit: When I boot into bootloader it says "battery low, cannot program".
    When plugged into the wall I get a picture of a battery with a ? in the middle of it.

    I would either take it back to Verizon and play dumb or snag a charger off ebay for less than $10. That way you could charge the battery up and be on your way. The .sbf flash is gonna be easy once you can actually do it.

    I don't think he needs a charger, he needs a battery that is currently holding a charge so he can run .sbf.

    I think it should be left for others that run into the same problem. It is a scary feeling to think your phone is bricked. It gives you a good feeling to see that others have been there and fixed it. Glad you got your working again.
