so I screwed up big time...

I wanted to try out MS2Ginger, since I was on Wajk rom I flashed some stock sbf - this part is now kinda fuzzy in my memory I had an issue with bootloader so had to use McGyver trick, which worked.

All I know is that at this point only DEFYPLUS_U3_4.5.1-134_DFP-125_BLUR... is booting up (tho tried only a few others). But it can't recognize my battery.

I managed to flash PVL rom

Same problem with battery. I searched for answers to my problem and found this topic:
I think this guy had a similar problem, well I hope it's all sbf fault and not a dead battery.

Thanks for your time

ps I have a red lens DEFY
and I can boot up only usin McGyver

I will probably be able to buy new battery tomorrow, but I'm still not convinced it is the main issue.
I still fill it's an sbf problem, can anyone help?

Does your defy recognize your battery in bootloadet so you don't get any errors like low battery?

At this point I can't boot, even to bootloader withoud McGyver trick.
I will check again, but I recall that bootloader says "Battery low" and after few mins of "Mc charging" it says it's ok.

I'd love to try and downgrade to see if this is the issue.
