The animation battery was displayed but did not display the green stuff. Tried turning on again after another 5 mins still no luck.
But when I've placed the battery in my other S3 it stated changing again. So I ended doing a battery swap on the device.
Offline charging seems to be disabled with aftermarket AOSP roms (unfixable kernel issues ??), so when you totally discharge the battery you end up in a boot loop : the phone starts up when you plug it in and it attempts to start. It wont fully boot because it runs out of juice then it attempts to start up again and it keeps going in this loop.
You have 2 choices if you drain the battery totally with this kind of ROM.
1- Take the battery out and put it in some other charger. It's YOUR current workaround.
2- Plug it in to a charger and hold down power + home + vol up to enter in recovery and let it sit in that mode for a few minutes then reboot the phone.
Let us know if it works for you
