My buddy also let his die all the way... I will warn him now to keep some juice in that thing. My battery got down to 1% yesterday... Whew close call. Thanks for heads up. I would switch to bulletproof 2.5 but I heard battery isn't as good... Maybe I will have to try

I think some developers also warned NOT to let your battery discharge all the way when using the custom ROM/recovery, or else you won't be able to charge it again.

This was a while back though, so I don't know if this is the same problem.

So short version, don't let your phone's battery die down to 0% before charging it again.
Wow, that's scary to say the least especially with Amaze's horrible battery life . However, it would be great if you try to look for the source of this information otherwise it can create lot of panic here, its almost hard to believe. If that's the case, I'm better off with stock ROM.

I never let my rooted phone's battery go down to nothing, it always had a charge. I used it on and off at home, and it was plugged in most of the time. It was odd when I picked it up and went to turn it on, no screen, no turn on, nothing. Phone had over 90% last time I picked it up, maybe 4 hrs before I noticed it was done. There's no way it would have died that quick with how I used it.

Unfortunately, I don't remember what thread it was in and couldn't find it. All I remember was reading it one day, and henceforth I stopped discharging my phone completely to avoid the issue.

Beyond that, you can only trust me on hearsay. (if someone else has more information, or remembers, be my guest!)

Without knowing for sure, but yours could also be a multitude of reasons (you actually did have a defective battery / rogue app(s) drained it in 4 hours / it was something else / etc.). However, I'm still prone to believe most of these reported issues with custom roms/recoveries are because the batteries were discharged completely. If someone were able to charge them again with an external charger, I bet it would work flawlessly again.

I thought the charging issue was a recovery problem. When xboarder was still developing here there were cases of this issue happening.
Since the threads have been closed/deleted then there are no longer any write ups regarding the concern.
My phone charges and turns on just fine when my battery is dead.
I'm using X's CWM Touch 5.8.0.9 and Energy ROM.

I've had my battery go to 0% a couple of times with the recovery in my signature. I just plugged it in for 10-15 minutes to charge some and then turned it on to finish charging.

I have changed to X's touch recovery and kernel to Faux 009 and guess what I was able to revive my dead battery... I dont know where the bug lied exactly as somebody mentioned at other place the stock kernel in NRGZ thread is different from tmo stock and causing problems My guess is bad recovery though...

This is the issue I was having, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1579498
I read somewhere that twrp was causing charging issues, still not sure completely. Usually when I get a new phone I let the battery die and then do a complete charge, not gonna do that again if that causes issues like I had.

This happened to me last night. My phone discharged all the way and now it won't boot up at all. I've let it discharge before with no problems.

I was running: recovery- CWM 5.0.2.6, kernel-stock, rom- energy 3/10/12

I guess I'll be hitting up the tmo store today.

Wait... My battery died last night and I tried charging it and it was flashing and not turning on... I let it charge for 15-20 min, did a battery pull, charged it for another minute, unplugged it and turned it on... It worked just fine
