I do not believe I have an issue with the physical port, because the phone automatically charges when connected to the PC. However, instead of asking me what to do when the USB is connected to the PC, the phone automatically turns on the Car Mode??? I cannot get the PC to recognize the phone for the life of me, so that means I am stuck on the stock rooted rom until I can easily gain access to the SD card via the USB cable... Anyone heard of this issue yet? Can I reinstall HTC sync without disrupting root?
