Hi guys... so I was flashing roms/themes, and suddenly... my phone randomly turns off.

No LED comes on when I'm charging. If I press vol up and Power my phone turns on, shows the HTC boot screen, then turns off.

Connecting to computer does nothing, no devices detected in ADB.

Is my phone dead?

Can you get into fastboot? Power and then quickly volume down.

Nope, won't enter recovery. Doesn't respond to vol down + power.

Phone is also exhibiting weird behavior... it attempts to automatically turn on periodically, but gets to the HTC powered by android screen, then shuts off.

When you plug it into the computer does the computer make a ding sound that it's connected? If so, then press power and volume up until the disconnect ding sound which indicates it's rebooting and then immediately press volume down and see if you can get into fastboot. The timing is tricky so I've found using audio cues from computer can help if the phone is messed up.
