[Q] Hard Bricked?
Alright, I've been working on trying to bring my SGH-I747 out of this perpetual black hole for two days and I'm running out of options. I was working with some Xposed modules, and recently installed Link2SD without issues. I was rebooting after installing new modules (before running any of them) that I downloaded from the Xposed Installer app. My phone shut down successfully, but then never turned back on.
I got extremely concerned because there should be no reason that it so suddenly decided to stop working so I tried to boot into both my CWM recovery and Download Mode. No luck. I would be really happy to see any kind of frozen boot screen, but unfortunately there is nothing. No combination of button pushing, battery removal, or charging (via usb or wall charger) has shown any sign of life except a red light that appears for about 60 seconds if I remove the battery and plug my phone into a charger. I really can't afford a new phone or JTAG so I've tried the SD card Hard Brick .img Restore from another thread with no luck. I'm running Windows 7 x64 and I've tried several different .img writers with similar results.
Any advice would be much appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!!!
