    never flash a rom on battery

    for some reason it goes to 5% while being flashed

    plug it into a wall socket

    if the dead battery indicator doesnt show up you may have a more serious issue

    if it does show up then it is fixable

    press and hold the power button and the volume down until it vibrates
    then immediately press and hold the volume up

    you should see a cog and a lightning bolt. this is flashing mode

    leave the phone like this for 15 minutes.
    press and hold the power and volume down again until it vibrates

    it should boot up after that

    if not... reinstall the rom while in flashing mode and plugged in

    My died on me when I only had it 2 days, I held the power button and the volume down like they said for 30 sec, was ready to take it in too the phone store after work and though I'll hold the buttons down longer. It was minutes instead of seconds before the phone vibrated and finally came back to life, try holding the buttons down until it vibrates, it may take minutes instead of seconds. Mine went dead after a windows update when I first got it.
