The Rom took a long time. It said it was going to be hours so I let it run last night and went to bed. Im not sure how long it was though as I was sleeping.

so it said that I didnt have enough charge to run it. I ran the restore stock recovery to get it to charge whille off. Now I can turn the phone off even on USB and it stays off with red light on so I think its charging again. I could be wrong. I guess that I will just have to wait a few hours and find out.

Editing this to say battery is now charging. I tried to let it charge before while in Clockwork Recovery. Fell asleep watching tv. When I woke upit was dead again. Ran battery check with the link you provided it was at 2 percent.

I turned it off again and plugged it into the wall. Let it charge for 30min and then ran battery check. Its now at 19percent!!!! I have never been so excited to see a battery charge.

One step at a time I guess. Its going to be a few hours or more to get this back up enough to do anything with it.

I will report back later.

dam! its dead again. Walked over light was off checked battery and its back to 0. Starting to think Im never going to get my phone working again.

Back up to 13 percent. I think whats happening is every once in a while the Red Light goes off for some reason while charging and then drains the battery.

Im checking on it every 15min or so by booting into fastboot. Run battery check in CWM then reboot into fastboot. Shutdown and plug back in wall.

Why on earth it wants to discharge the battery after charging for a little while is beyond me.

It worked!!!!!

It was saying battery to low to flash the 1.28 boot.img.

So I ran the 1.26 and that worked. Then I powered off and entered fastboot again then ran the 1.28.

Success!!! Phone is now fully booted and charging.

Now, do I dare try to continue to flash a new Rom in the morning when Im at 100percent.

Thanks you so much to pointing me in the right direction Its beyoned appreciated.

If your battery is too flat to flash a new recovery via fastboot, and you're stuck with the old reovery what doesn't charge when the power is off or in bootloader/recovery, you're in a bit of a pickle.

The battery should still charge for the few seconds between when you power on and when it enters the bootloader, so you will just need to keep rebooting it over and over while plugged in until your battery is back up to over 30%.

A few people ahve reported this method to work. Personally, I haven't tried it, but it's worth a shot.

you need to do it quickly and manually. Holding down the button doesn't tuen it off for 10 seconds each time and that uses more power than what it's getting in the few seconds of charge each cycle.

If it wasn't working, it would be completely flat by now.

I wonder has anyone tried charging via the dock pins in this state?
