Default [Q] Is this Hard Bricking?

I am using hyperion 9 rom with hells fusion kernel...... everything was working fine ..... suddenly my phone kept on getting random reboots in every 10 seconds and got stable after nearly 20 random reboots..... again everything kept working fine.... but after 3 days random reboots started but this time my phone doesnt boot up.... as I insert the battery without any command phone shows the boot logo for 2 sec and then turn off ..... no button , no combination works after it..... as i remove and insert battery again , it same thing happens..

So is this hard brick??? or just another problem??

No a hard brick is when you either just have a white screen and you cant get into download mode and you have no galaxy y logo - since you can see the galaxy y logo it would be unlikely thats its hard bricked and can be recovered some way even if its with a jtag or by hardware repair


sounds to me like you just have a hardware fault

could be
flat battery - battery is dead hence when you remove it and put it back in you get some life for a few secs
usb port/charger - faulty so not charging battery
power button - faulty so not turning phone on or is held in so keeps the phone restarting
mother board - faulty so not booting

if you cant get into download mode to flash stock rom but you can see the galaxy y logo its most likely a hardware fault so take it to be repaired

if you cant pop the power button back out so it functions normally or the power button has just gone you will have to get the power button replaced
