Galaxy S5 Sudden Death?
I've had my S5 for a few days now, but I've found that it's now essentially bricked.
I rooted my G900I (Asia) using CF-Root for G900F with no issues at all. Everything worked fine, as
had been reported by several other users. I then flashed AllianceROM V1 and everything was fine.
Just yesterday, I flashed the Custom Settings patch and one of the updates, and it seemed to be ok.
Suddenly, the battery started to die fairly quickly. I didn't worry about this at the time, as it'sa new phone,
I have only performed one full battery cycle, it's probably just calibrating etc etc.
I got home and plugged it in to charge, it had gone from 40% to 13% in a few hours. I had force-stopped NFC
(which I noticed the NFC on/off tab was greyed out in the on position, still a grey toggle button though).
At around 20% i flashed OmegaROM 1.3 to see if it was the ROM causing the issue, but nothign changed.
I noticed even while plugged in I was losing battery. I switched it to Ultra Power Save mode, and the battery
stayed at a steady 9% (seemed like it was charging, but the battery was draining so fast it was just staying at 9%).
The battery estimate was 1.1 days. Within 5 hours it was dead.
I plugged it in, and saw the charging animation (just a frozen empty battery though) and after about half an hour, the
image disappeared. I tried to turn it on, but it did nothing.
I took out the battery for 30seconds/1minute, but it didn't make a difference. Charged it all night, it still won't turn on.
Has anyone heard of or experienced this before?
I'm going to try and take it back to the Samsung store to see what they say...
