Question [Q] VZW Moto X half-bricked? Screen off, vibrates randomly.

Hey folks,

Weird issue today with my Moto X (locked boot loader, unrooted, totally stock). Earlier today I took the phone off the charger and all was working normally. About an hour after that, I took my phone out to check stuff and the screen is off completely and the phone vibrates every so often but at uneven intervals. I have tried every hardware key combo known to man to reboot and nothing gives. I'm hoping that once the battery eventually dies on its own I will be able to reboot (?) and this is some random software issue, but no idea. Anyone have a solution? I've already emailed Moto to see what they think. I'm in Kabul right now so no VZW stores for a few thousand miles.

Appreciate any input/help!

I have had this before, I however an not so stock and assumed that was the culprit. Have you tried holding down power until reboot? It should be like 10-15 seconds.

If you can get to the fastboot screen you could flash the Verizon sbf firmware , did you try plugging the charger in ?and see if you can boot it that way

I plugged it in to a vehicle charger (where I am right now) and nothing changed when I did the button combos. I'm going to see about fastboot later on today but not looking good at this point.

I had the same damn problem on my Droid Maxx... It just used to randomly vibrate and vibrate and vibrate with the screen off... and used to get super hot and finally stop... Then i took the phone apart and guessed the LCD connection was bad so i just removed every thing i could and put it back together! And Vola it worked!!

Heard back from Moto - just going to start the exchange process. They didn't seem to know what was up with it.
