    I hope not, did get insurance though when I activate the phone, but that's $100...

    The other thing that someone recommended was to connect the phone to the USB and then reboot the phone...
    Tried that as well...

    Maybe if try the 404 it'll work and I can at least get back to stock and make a nandroid...

    You know didn't think to try because computer wouldn't even recognize the phone to begin with.

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    This may be a stupid question, but I'm going to throw it out there:

    Have you tried a different computer?
    Can't remember :-( --> Nokia 6500 slide --> Samsung U450 --> HTC Incredible S --> Galaxy Nexus

    Yup...



    I did get my stock wall charger today in the mail, with the Moto charger, I had to play with it a bit to get it to charge, but once it was charging it was good. With the OEM wall charger, plugged it right in and had no issues, charging right away.

    It must be a cable issue, not being OEM, just found it odd that for the first two days, it worked flawlessly, then all the sudden its intermitent and the boom, not working at all...

    All well. As long as I can charge my phone I'm good

    It is strange, I'm using my old Moto cord from the DX and it is working fine, AFT, ADB etc. It didn't work for a couple days then I flashed B31 and it worked again, maybe it was the ROM, maybe the cord connection is intermittent...
