If your battery falls below a certain level then FreeRunner sometimes will
not charge it.

We are working on fixes for this but in the short term you have these

1. Jump start your battery. Michael will explain how, Takes 5 seconds.
2. Get a stand alone battery charger from Nokia ( for battery types 4bl,
5bl, 6bl)
3. Get a replacement battery.

while surfing the device-owners list i've stumbled over this:

> Sometimes it happened (I think to all of us! ;) ) that NEO1973's 
> battery goesfully discharged, and for this I follow the instruction on 
> the wiki pages(detach battery 20 seconds, attach to USB, wait 1 hour, 
> start the Phone).

anyway -- the guy posting this seemed to have killed his battery (not
finished the thread yet).
regarding you usb-only: maybe your usb port does not supply 500mAh?

btw: your leds flash? mine do nothing -- is this related to the asu image?
