So. I have had my DNA for like a year and a half. I have Viper DNA 2.5.0 installed and customized to my liking. I've been noticing a few little glitchy things here and there but for the most part the phone is functioning okay. Here's my problem. A few weeks ago I went to plug in the usb to charge and there must have been a little speck of dirt, gravel, or some of pocket debris and when i pushed in the connector it bent the pins inside the charge/data port. I have managed, using a pin, to straighten all of the pins except one which was beyond repair. I can plug in the cable and I can get it to charge but it will no longer be recognized by the computer. The damaged pin is one of the data signal pins so connection to the PC via usb is pretty much out.
Here's my question... Should I try to update my rom by wifi file transferring the latest viper DNA update file to the phone and then installing the zip in recovery? If anything goes wrong... i will not be able to connect the phone via USB to run any recovery options if things get boned up.
Is there a situation i could get myself into that not having a usb connection will totally leave me screwed?
Any advice would be appreciated.
