Hello everyone. This is my first forum post, but I've been browsing around XDA for a few months now and I really like the community. I switched to a droid from an iPhone back in November, and I'm glad I switched. Anyway, enough with my short introduction, let me get to my problem. I've flashed the official JellyBean release (4.1.1) about a month ago, with no problems whatsoever. However, yesterday I plugged my phone into my friend's wall charger. My phone rebooted by itself, and gave me a Fastboot Flash: Fail error. I entered the boot menu, selected normal Powerup, and everything was fine, for a moment. It booted up normally, then restarted by itself again. It did this a few times, then; it would only bring up the Fastboot Flash: Fail screen again. It will only let me get to the boot menu 1/10 times I try, and won't boot. Every time I select Normal Powerup, BP Tools or recovery, it flashes the Moto 'M' for just a second before returning me to the same page. I tried reflashing the JB firmware, and it would flash up until step 18/23, then fail at step 18: Cannot flash system.img: Phone returned FAIL. It would get to this point every time, then stop. This only started yesterday when I plugged my phone into my friend's charger. I don't see WHY this would cause my phone to brick, but that seems to be the situation. Here's the screen my phone showed yesterday and today:


AP Fastboot Flash Mode
10.98(*) (sha-2e68327, 2012-11-17 23:33:08)
eMC Info: Size 8GB

Device is LOCKED. Status Code: 0

Battery Low - (Only showed this today, it said Battery OK yesterday when I first tried reflashing)

Transfer Mode:
USB Connected




No valid PIV block in SP for system
piv validation failed (system)
Fastboot reason: Boot failure
usb connected


Now it won't even attempt to flash because my battery's almost dead. I've tried all the 'flash/charge-even-though-your-battery's-low' workarounds, but to no avail, either. Any help would be appreciated, and if more info is needed, I'll provide as much as I can.

I've heard something about a special cable that will charge your phone while on fast boot mode but its kinda fuzzy. Otherwise warranty the phone with Motorola.

Google Motorola factory cable adaptor for what he's talking about to charge it.

I resolved the issue. I ended up takiing my AHD to the AT&T store, playing dumb, and getting a replacement. Thanks for the quick responses.

Is there no solution to this issue other than taking it to AT&T?

Solution to what? Stuck on fastest? Unlock your bootloader and flash stock.

maybe you need the 工程线(i do not know its english name),it can make your phone charge at fastboot .
i can buy it at taobao.i do not know whether you can buy it .
maybe you can try to make it by yourself,there were some guides for making one all by yourself.
