 cat /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0073/charger_type gives host/500mA
 usb mode 100mA

 Is it charging (at 100ma) and I just need to let it do its thing ?

 Will the wall charger work better - its at home(!)

 Or do I need to jump start the battery? :(

 Shouldnt the phone have shut itself down at 0% as protection?

I believe the neo sometimes can use more than 100mA to operate, so just 
plugging it in without enabling fast charge could STILL discharge the 
battery.  You need to enable 500mA or 1A quick charge, as noted by the 
poster above me.

It's not charging.

Yes.

Not yet, but you should shut it down to keep it that way.

| Shouldnt the phone have shut itself down at 0% as protection?

Yes, we're adding it.

I think I finally understood where this issue is really coming from.
Did you update your U-Boot in the last couple of weeks?

Not quite, I borrowed a wall charger and it was ok, charged at 1A.  USB
from my laptop is still 100ma instead of the 500ma it has been
previously.  My thinking is usb charging is broken and not fixed by the
depmod todays kernel needs before networking will work.

Hi,

I've almost the same problem, but charger_type says:
charger 1A mode 500mA

(The charger is a USB host...)

 I think I finally understood where this issue is really coming from.

In my case, yes.  It's
U-Boot 1.3.2+gitr6+ba029a1426bfca169572bf80d50a8b190a6b0e19

(although the file name was
u-boot-gta02v5-1.3.1+gitr6+ba029a1426bfca169572bf80d50a8b190a6b0e19-r0.bin
from Jully 25th.)
