When i try to charge my phone, it doesnt show its charging up right corner... When i wait and the battery is empty, i can see the "lightning" sign come when the phone is totaly off and the "red battery" is in the middle of the screen!
When it powers up, the phone wont show it charges (BUT IT DOES) and also no connection to computer..
This means im not able to restore the phone :S
When i put it in DFU it wont react with the computer :S

I don't, I just managed to screwed it up while I was changing the back cover and now I have this battery issue.

You may have damaged something on the main board while doing your housing swap or you may have damaged the dock connector assembly. What are the symptoms you are experiencing?

Basically, the same thing as tori1234 posted. I can charge the Phone even if the icon doesn't represent the actual charge of the battery. But then it won't be recognized by Itunes or by the computer. Now since, it won't show in I-tunes I can't restore it and etc. I've tried DFU, power off, restart reboot but nothing.
The phone have been jailbreak. so I can SSH my way in if I need to change stuff or modify some corrupt file.
Has you said, it might be the connector assembly. I guess I should order one since they are not very expensive.

Try a new dock connector. If that doesnt solve the problem we will take it from there.
In the mean time, keep trying to get the phone into recovery or DFU mode and see if you are able to restore. I don't think it is a software problem but it doesnt hurt to keep trying while you wait for the part.

Thanks for the advice. I will keep you posted whether it work or not.

I have this exact same problem...and replaced the dock connector last night. No luck. When plugged in, the phone will charge but no indicator. Nothing happens when I plug it into a computer in any mode. I have tried different cables and computers...even put the mainboard in another phone. Same problem. I deleted all apps on the phone thinking it was a software problem. The only thing that I haven't tried is a full master reset on the phone...which I am afraid to do as there are 350 pictures I need to get off the phone (it is not mine, I would never leave that many images on a phone without back up!)

Email all of the pictures to yourself and then try to reset all settings. I doubt it is a software issue. Sounds like a logic board problem. I would also try different methods of getting the phone into DFU mode

I already emailed most of the photos to me...one by one...because the phone is running 2.2.1.
I also noted that there is about 500 unread emails on the phone, I deleted the account...I wonder if that is causing some of the problems. I am hesitant to do the master reset as I don't think it will work...I should let the phone owner try it.

This is a phone you are repairing for a customer? Give it back and admit you are stumped. It is not right to try to turn a profit if you cannot fix it. It is also not right to delete all of his information when you do not know what you are doing.
Look up his phones serial and check to see the warranty status on it. If it is under warranty, let him deal with it. There is a good possibility that there is a hardware issue with the phone keeping it from being detected.

It's actually my brother's...it is out of warranty. He mailed it to me from across the country. He also said to decide which photos would be worth saving...but I do not want to take a chance. No profit being made here.

Please check for missing components around flex connector 1.
Other day I fixed same problem.

In my case it seems like a logic board problem. I've try another dock but no luck. Same thing with the touch screen, I've put a new one in and still no sound from the ear-speaker.
GSmalers, I'm curious of how you fixed your phone.
Franberry did the soldering solved your issue ?
