    Howdy, Droid X Bootloader 30.04

    Cannot get past the message "Battery Low Cannot Program" even with the battery at 100% Have 5 batteries and tried different ones that were all @ 100% charge.

    Not sure if it matters, but the phone was running rooted GB

    I'm thinking it's toast, but any help would be great.

    Do you think I'm one of the few that actually bricked this phone?

    vandamme,

    Just saw your posts here...don't know if this will help and/or that you might have already tried this, but have you tried plugging / charging the phone via the wall-charger instead of the USB charger?

    I suggest this because of the folks in this thread:

    Bootloader 27.01 Message - Battery Low cannot program - Verizon Wireless Community

    mentioned basically exactly the same issue you appear to be having and using the wall charger was the solution to the issue (allow the battery to fully re-charge like the thread suggests).

    Good luck and cheers!

    Thanks. The batteries I tried were all @ 100%, but just for testing, I discharged a battery until my (working) X shut down. Removed that battery and installed in the non-working X and plugged it in with the wall charger over night thinking *maybe* something would reset in the phone since I was charging the battery from dead, but no joy.

    What was the last thing that the phone or you did when it was working properly?

    It it was working normally and you were not flashing roms, it could be a hardware issue.

    I think you are correct. Phone was just sitting there......wasn't flashing or even using it.

    Unplug the USB cable from the phone. Take the battery out and let it sit for a minute. Put the battery back in and power up (do not connect the USB cable).

    See if that works.

    Wife's X showing

    Boot loader 30.04


    Battery ok
    Ok to program
    Connect USB
    Data cable

    Her battery was not low nor was USB plugged in. She was trying to fetch an email address for a friend and screen went to above. Tried multiple battery pulls plugging in wall and USB no luck.

    Seems like this is happening or similar to others? Never did this before
    Oh yeah, stock not rooted

    Do a search for SBF, you will need a charged battery. If it fails, you most likely need a new phone, most X's are still within the 1 year warranty if the water sensor is not triggered.

    Thanks. I think I've tried just about everything. Looks like the phone is toast (not a big deal). Guess it's time to sell for parts.
