[Q] Rooted, deleted a few things, then dead galaxy s4? What happened?
So I rooted my s4 using towelroot and stupidly tried to install a custom recovery. First CWM then TWRP (not sure if this has anything to do with it, likely not?). Now it has no power, and wont charge...
Events leading up to the dead s4:
I "rebooted to recovery" and it brought me to the DOWNLOADING! screen instead of a recovery manager, I held down power and then it shut off and it turned back on again and brought me to another screen asking me to continue or boot normally.
I booted normally.
Then I deleted a few of the annoying apps that were preinstalled, nothing that was listed as essential to the Kernel/OS using Root App Delete. Finally I went to work with the battery dying, and it died on the way.
I tried to charge it the following morning and it would not charge. No LED light, no vibrate that usually happens. I left it alone with the battery out for 2 days, switching back to my s3. Tried again, still nothing.
Wont charge, computer wont recognize. Tried 3 different cables, a samsung charger and my asus tablet charger. Apparently it is a brick.
Thought it might be the USB port, and from a previous screen swap I performed, I still had the old USB assembly, so I swapped them, and it still will not respond. I even tried the older screen, nothing.
Anyone have the slightest clue what happened? I bought another battery to try, but doubt it will resolve the problem.
