 +====== Fix "​Battery Low - Cannot program"​ Error ======
 +Disclaimer: This worked for me on my Droid X. You might end up ruining your phone and even hurting yourself in the process. Do this at your own risk. I am NOT responsible!<​br />
 +  - You will need a spare USB cable (this will be cut).
 +  - Cut the end off opposite the rectangular computer plug side.
 +  - Strip the red and black wires. Red is Vcc (+5) and black is ground. Get the 2 other wires out of the way (I just cut them off).
 +  - Remove the battery and you will see 4 contact pins on the phone that the battery contact pins goes to (it flexes up and down).
 +  - Hook the red USB wire (+5) to the far left pins (towards the camera flash).
 +  - Hook the black USB wire (ground) to the far right.
 +  - Make sure the red is not touching any other metal except the pin. If necessary, secure with electrical tape or put in the battery.
 +  - Verify the connections by looking at the polarity label on the battery itself.
 +  - Plug the USB into the computer and that should solve the battery problem.
 +  - Plug the USB data cable to your phone, then you should see a message similar to this, "Ready to program, connect USB data cable."​
 +  - Reflash/sbf or do whatever you need to do.
 +  - Make sure you unplug the cable from the computer before removing the wires from the pins.
 +Basically, it's just bypassing the battery.
