[Q] Possibly bricked....
my battery ran very low (~2%), and I put it in a car charger, and used it for a call. I've heard of car chargers or combination of different cables etc. causing problems, but I think I can rule out a burned out motherboard, as the phone was functioning for the call and a text was sent after.
About 5 min after I took it out of the car charger (got home) I noticed that the capacitive buttons were lit. I tried turning the phone screen on, nothing happened. So I held down the power button for 20 seconds or so, again nothing. Then I held down the power button and volume down, and it went into recovery (twrp)
Not sure why I did this, but I wiped the cache and dalvik cache, and hit reboot system. Now at this point I don't know if the battery died, or if it tried to reboot and didn't work. Either way, it is now dead
I have tried the following;
Hold power button, no response
Hold power button, and volume down, no response
Hold power button, volume down and volume up, no response
Left charger plugged in for an hour, no response
There is no led light on when the charger is plugged in
I have tried connecting to a pc, it makes the 'new device connected' sound, and soon after, the disconnect sound. Windows states that the usb device is not recognised.
