Well here's my long story...
i was running QND MIUI for about 2 months, thought of checking ICS,
so i took nandroid and installed MIUI ICS (non blackrose version).
installation went fine and it booted up good. but i found it to be laggy and
so decided to restore my previous rom. so i switched off.(the problem started nw)
when i pressed on the power button it didnt boot. i tried pressing as hard as possible
but nothing happened.

Battery Swap
so i tried swapping batteries with my brother's nexus one. his phone booted but mine didn't
(so my battery is fine)

Battery Trick
i tried the battery trick, again my brother's phone booted but mine didnt
( so my power button should be fine)

i connect my phone to pc via usb charger. the orange led glows but its not detected by system.
when i charge using wall charger, again orange led glows and after some time it turns green
( so battery stats is read correctly)


My nexus is SLCD variant with unlocked bootloader
so is my nexus dead ? what could be the problem? is there any solution to bring it alive? or should i hand it over to htc service center ?
EDIT : have linked two videos of how i do battery trick
1- working in my bro's phone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O5adV-jj64
2- not working in mine - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCyPIyGorFk
thanx

I would suggest to PM a member called 'Theshawty'. Hes on my friends list. He knows everything, and also helped me unbrick stuff alot of times!

1.will the charging led glow in a bricked phone?
2.can a bricked phone read the correct state of battery(changing from orange to green when i charge it for some time)
3.can a incident like mine happen all of a sudden by just flashing a rom?
4. i seldom use power button(very very very rarely),hw can it not work all of a sudden?
