Nexus 4 Red Light Blinking but with a Catch?
Before anyone says anything, I have already searched google/xda for this issue and found the common fix for the red light issue which involves opening up the phone.
However, before I go about performing an open heart surgery on my phone I just want to confirm that it is the same issue and hence I have made this thread.
So here's the story:
Last night my phone gave me the 15% warning but I was too damn sleepy to plug in my phone so I just slept. Next morning I wake up and plug it in only to find the blinking red light. I left it in for an hour and removed it to find it incredibly warmer than normal and of course, it still was not coming on.
So I unplugged it and replugged it into the charger. This time the red light blinked twice and then the white battery sign came up. Only difference is that now a fully charged white battery sign keeps blinking (no red light anymore). When I try to turn it on it reaches the Google Logo before shutting down again.
Would like advice on if I should go about opening up my phone (I prefer not to obviously) or just charge it for 8 or so hours before taking any further action.
Thanks in Advance
I used http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...rn-charge.html and was able to boot into bootloader mode however, it still doesn't go past the google logo when I select the 'Start' option.
Revived phone using above. Close thread.
