[Q] New old phone battery stuff...
Hi, please stick with me a minute!
I was gifted (elderly, but usually savvy aunt) an early droid razr after battery fail (and verizon replacement to a newer phone).
I was given an XT912, with 98.72.16.XT912.Verizon.en.US installed.
Also: cable marked: Motorola Data Cable SKN6428A 12150-0403532 and
double usb wart, folding prongs: SPN5689A 11268-C6-0821306-13D1 DC4050US0305.
It would only run when I pinned an USB cable directly to the battery terminals.
Battery would not charge, so I ordered another.
Now, new battery is in, and it will run from battery (still open back).
Wall wart/cable shows NO indication it is charging - white LED blinks on insertion (often starts), and that is it - no other lights, no charge icon, no charge text (Battery applied voltage does not change.).
USB to to computer shows no lights, DOES show charge icon, DOES show charge text (I can see battery applied voltage go up a bit with meter).
Is this all normal?
Is it the right cable for wall and USB use? Was there only 1 in OE box?
(I'm very suspicious because this cable/wart WILL charge my N7, but not this droid razr.)
Is there a special cable for wall wart? Pinout?
(I tried re-flashing existing OE rom, same results.)
THANKS ANY AND ALL!
