Hi all. So my Sprint Pre- ribbon cable broke when I dropped the phone. I could still power it on... just had no display. I tried the tricks to try to get it mounted on my computer via USB, but nothing worked. I then bought an unlocked Pre 2 from eBay and was able to power it on and get the screen saying to install a SIM card.
I then followed the wiki on swapping comm boards. Everything seemed to go smoothly except now I get a battery icon with a big question mark in the middle. I've tried plugging it in and holding the up arrow and turning it on (while still holding arrow) and nothing. The phone won't power on at all if it's not connected to the wall or the computer (and when it does power on, it always displays that horrific icon)
Help me... did I screw up when assembling the phone? I took it apart again and made sure the ribbon cables were connected to the comm board and tried again and the same thing.
I know the battery icon thing has been asked before but didn't see any posts that they got it right after following the wiki on swapping comm boards: Sprint Pre 2 - WebOS Internals
Please help me... I'm scared I went from one dead phone to two dead phones... help tonight would be great :<
