Unhappy [Q] Stuck in Fastboot with Low Battery with no recovery

Hi everyone!
I'm stuck at fastboot screen with low battery, no recovery and no rom installed because everytime I want to flash a firmware I get some kind of error.
Can anybody help me to charge the phone so I can try flash a recovery? I tried with wall charger but it doesn't work. With usb cable it says it's charging but it still remains with Low Battery.

Please somebody help me

  1. Plug it into the charger
  2. Hold the VOL DOWN key
  3. While still holding the VOL DOWN key, press and hold the POWER key
  4. Hold both keys down for over 120 seconds. This is more than two minutes and will seem like a long time. You might want to time yourself to make sure you hold it longer than two minutes.
  5. After holding the keys down for more than two minutes, release them.
  6. The Fastboot screen will display, and charging should be indicated.


If you have tried the above and it didn't work, try this:
  • Plug in the phone for 15 minutes.
  • Proceed to Step 2 above.

Hey I have done this before and just tried it again after the following scenario:

this morning, charged battery with phone off to 100%,,,
powered on, left plugged in charging,,,
did some things on phone,,,
unplugged from charger,,,
did some things ,,,
battery charge was at about 96% started playing hillclimb racing,,,
played maybe 3-10 minutes,,, and during the game it pops up with the dreaded "battery low... shutting down..."

plugged in showed about 5%,,,
did the vol down power ~2 minutes
into fastboot chose recovery, then choose power off

now battery shows 55% right away...

what gives?
I guess holding the buttons clear the battery.bin stats?

This is a known bug and should be fixed if you are able to upgrade to 4.4.4, or better yet flash the full 4.4.4 firmware image.

Sorry, you are limited to 8 thanks per day

Thanks!
I saw that from your other post right after I posted this and I have read about it several weeks ago,,,
I am currently on 4.4.4 liquid smooth 8-17-2014
and have had 4.4.4 and this issue on most all other ROMs I have been trying out to some degree. and sometimes it seems worse that others...

Was more curious to what gets cleared by holding those buttons..?

Custom ROMs won't include the fix afaik. Unless someone deliberately adds it.

The official Motorola forum post is all I know, but a dev will have to investigate it at some point. Motorola might be willing to assist.
