I then reinstalled stock recovery and then did an OTA update.
I thought that if you did OTA and were s-off and rooted + unlocked all that would happen is you would lose root? The OTA worked went into the stock recovery and i believe that it got to the end. My phone then turned off and now when i plug in my phone it does not have the red indicator light and when I hold power all that happens is the buttons flash.
If my phone runs out of batteries will it somehow be able to boot up? Or am I just out of luck?
If I am, this should serve as a warning to all those who want S-Off and are unlocked . . . BE CAREFUL ABOUT OTAs . . . DO NOT DO THEM . . .
My phone just did something insane from what I thought was a hard brick . . . it just somehow turned on and took me back to the screen of stock recovery with it updating the OTA but it is frozen . . .
i just tried to plug my phone in . . . not showing red indicator still . .
