I upgraded my Neo to 2.3.4 from pccompanion for test it, then downgraded to 2.3.2 to enable root and my battery shows 0% charge. It refuses to charge showing always a red light on led. Reflashing to 2.3.4 doesn't resolve problem. Reflashing 2.3.2 and rooting to delete batterystats.bin doesn't resolve the problem.
I tried everything, remove battery, cleaning it, charging via pc usb, via wall socket all night...
I see in Arc forums more people with this problem.
First rule of safety. Don't trust some ftf(or any software for that matter) files put up from china. There are more expert hackers there than you can imagine. Anything might have some little "bonus" code along the normal stuff(doing nothing in your interest), which may break some normal functioning as well. Blind faith and trust will get your stuff broken sooner or later. IF the ftf is in any way tampered it will not work well with your locked bootloader, things can and will break. Use Wotanserver, it's safer but even then... you're not 100% safe.
You tried relocking bootloader and repairing via SEUS?
Get 2.3.3 via Wotanserver before if necessary.
Ok do you know that you can start phone without battery? I can't immediately find the thread here in XDA. One method was in Motorola Defy forums, using spare USB cable to connect it to phone - and + battery connectors. For other you need some battery juice to get to second bootimage.
Had my defy go into similar state after USB connection failed during upgrade to official froyo... It was deader than dead. Sent it back to shop for repairs.
Hi Elessar, I suggest you to send your phone to SE if you still have your warranty. I had the same problem and SE replaced a new motherboard for my NEO. I saw this issue on a couple of forums and there is no solution yet.
And Raoa, I do understand your concerns, but I think you have worried too much. Most ftf files that I can find on Chinese forums are mirrored from XDA as well as flashing tools, etc. If the Chinese really want your phone hacked, it has already been hacked anyways, because your phone is probably made in China or part of some part of your phone is made in China.
Your logic is incomplete yunle. It's the other way around, a very eager ftf providing comes from China, and these files get mirrored on US/EU servers not the opposite way. Official phone making is not the same as "enthusiastic" providing of unofficial flashing files. 3rdly, trust or not, but always check what is what. Worry and think whatever, thinking can always be wrong. I rather trust an European who puts the source of SE files up along with user made ftf file. Saying anything else is suggesting to "flash away and don't think, all will be fine, nothing bad will happen".
Anyone with this battery problem have you tried relocking bootloader and fixing via SEUS? Try it, if you haven't. It worked for someone in a simliar situation.
Do you find yourself obsessively jumping from ROM to ROM? And do you hate having to restore a full … more
