    That is the unroot guide.

    As for your charging issue, I would definitely try a different charging cable first, then if that doesn't do anything take the phone to a CORPORATE store. They will replace the phone on the spot unlike regular retail stores which take 3-5 days to send you one in the mail.

    I had this happen once, wiping battery stats in recovery fixed it.

    So here are your priorities:

    1. use a different outlet
    2. use a different cord/cable whatever
    3.do what Farfromuman said
    4. is et it charge while its off
    5....unroot not hard but very time consuming in you dont know what your doing

    good-luck I hope I helped,

    i had the same problem with my unrooted optimus. when i plugged it in after a full drain, the buttons at the bottom would blink, but no charging would take place. I took it into a corporate store and they swapped the battery. PROBLEM SOLVED! for a while... whenever the battery gets fully drained it won't charge. if it does somehow get a charge on it and i put it on the charger, the battery icon will say it's charging, but the percentage will go down!!!! i am using rocketfish brand chargers for both home and car (i lost the OEM charger within weeks of having the phone). I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not... my sister has the same phone and is using the charger from her old Razr and as far as i'm aware is having no problems.... this is really turning me off to this phone.... no pun intended!
