    Earlier today i plugged my phone into a usb cord connected to my friends xbox360 trying to charge my rooted GB phone.

    I get an error message saying bloatware 30.04 and a blinking message saying battery low cant program.

    I just had my phone plugged into a charger for 2 hours and i dont think it is taking the charge.

    Has anyone ever encountered this before or have any suggestions for a possible fix?

    Anything at all could really help, Thank you!

    It sounds to me like you'll need do an sbf recovery. The first thing you'll need is a charged battery. The battery can't charge in bootloader mode. If you have a vzw store near you they can do it for you. If you need help SBF recovering, let us know. Additionally, there are guides in the stickies at the top of this section.

    they appear to be interchangeable, yes....the same battery number.

    From a mac, I'm clueless. There is a thread creating a linux sbf. Perhaps someone more in the know with that may help you.

    you have to create a linux based sbf file, you can use a CD or a USB stick

    Linux solution to your Windows/RSD lite problems

    here is the link to the original post, you can do this on a mac, just plug in the usb, or a cd, and boot to the cd/usb and your set

    sandy, or
    yeah the bootable sbf cd is what you want to do... don't worry about it loading linux on your computer, it runs the OS right from the cd and is gone as soon as the cd is removed. simple and fairly painless...

    Live CD Instructions (Mac):
    Download 1KDStaz0.x.iso
    Use Disk Utility (built in) to burn iso file to a CD (instructions)
    Shut computer down
    Hold c key, push power and hold c untill you see the Linux OS start
    Hit enter at the yellow "boot baby... boot" screen
    You will see yellow dots for 3-5 minutes then the script will start


    does the bold part mean just download any of those links on the top of the page?

    Bootcamp your mac to have a windows or linux partition. I've got windows 7 on mine and it takes about half the time to sbf over my standard windows hp crappy laptop.
