I'm taking my phone to Cell Phone Repair Chile. Will report back with news.

Update: Got a pair of decent screwdrivers and was able to disassemble the phone. It is as you said, something's broken internally on the motherboard.
Will ask the folks at CPR if there's anything they can do, tho i doubt it.

A little more on coming back from a bootloop without going into recovery.

You can do a factory reset (format data and cache partitions) using fastboot -w.

If the above won't get you out of the bootloop, because of a broken system partition or system apss, you could flash a backup of your system partition, or the system.img file from a rom zip (for example a CM zip).

fastboot flash system system.img


To get to a system partition backup, you can grab a nandroid backup, extract the system.ext4.tar.a file and pack it's content on a .img file (or maybe even rename the file?).

You can also backup your current system partition through the terminal:

su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p36 of=/mnt/sdcard/system.img bs=4096

system.img file will be backed up to your internal storage.


You guys think this makes any sense?
