    Exclamation Bricked my phone accidentally

    So I was excited to see that CM7 reached beta today, during my excitement i thought id get right into it and unlock the bootloader. I've done this before and knew the routine somewhat. here's where the problem came into play: My phone had recently died, i had it charging for only a few minutes before deciding to plug it in and let the unlocker tear away at my prized possession... so the software starts doing its thing, and the phone dies in the process. I knew it died when it wouldn't reboot and the hours started going by, followed by my denial wearing off, then acceptance. I ****ed up.

    She is now unable to turn on. Period. Yes, I pulled the battery, tried different outlets, different chargers, usb cords, plugging into the computer, holding the damn button combinations, etc...

    There is no light from the LED at all, not even a flicker.

    For the love of god someone help me please

    Cables

    You might try that cable. I believe you can flash without even having the battery in the phone. It draws power directly from the USB Port you're using. This may be able to save you...

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    You have several option,

    You can ask a friend that has an Atrix to lend you a fully charged battery. $0
    Buy a external battery charger either from Radioshack, Amazon, or Best Buy. $30-$60
    If you think you are brave enough you could righ the wires to charge the battery directly. I'll see if I can find the tutorial on that, but is not for the faint of heart.

    Here it is, if you dare.

    I must add that I am in no way responsable for any damage caused to your device if you try this method. And neither is this forum.

    I think this is the tutorial Rob was looking for. Also i dont think anyone has purposely bricked their phone...just saying.

    The tutorial i listed should work just fine for u, but its not for the weak of heart...good luck friend. May the force be with u.

    Edit: Damn u Rob...u win this round.

    My Atrix is back on the Pill so i decided to take off the case.
    I think this is where i say something witty, clever, and cool.

    Talking

    The force was indeed with me, I hooked the wires up directly to the battery, a trick I used to use at work when I forgot my charger and managed to kidnap someone else's to victimize... im quite notorious in the the charger killing community. But I heavily digress.Moving on.The phone turned on! This morning at 9:36 to be exact. It was soft bricked but no biggie, its now alive and that's all that matters. Im now giving it a second go around with the unlock after fixing the brick.

    RobKort and daveyonthemove like this.

    It's a shame too, I knew what I was getting myself into. I took a pointless chance in running the unlock when I did.
