Lenovo 500e 2nd gen bootloops when battery is connected

I’ve installed mrchromebox’s firmware on my 500e second gen, and it works fine when I have the battery disconnected, but when I reconnect the battery, when I press the power button, the power light and screen backlight just keep turning on and off, the Chromebook never actually boots, is there an additional step I need to do for the chromebook to work with the battery connected?

EDIT - i just left it plugged in while turned off for like 10 minutes, and now it works fine.
