I was running Goldeneye 3x for a few weeks, and just last night, i started to get a few random reboots. I thought nothing of it, then this morning, my phone doesn't turn on. I thought okay dead battery, put it to charge, but nope, no led, no response from the phone. There is no button combination that gives me a response. The only thing that gives me a response is taking the battery out, putting it back in. It gives the Samsung logo with the unlocked lock symbol and "custom" under it, and after about 2 seconds, it goes dead again. Maybe its a dead battery? What are my options? What should I look into?

Thanks

edit: got a new battery from fry's today, no difference, still won't turn on and still getting the same response from the phone

Since you can't get into safestrap, will it allow you to reboot into download mode? You could try ODIN back to stock?

Could it be a broken power button (the internal button not the outside one)? or a messed up usb port? A different battery gave the same results as my original battery
