Here's my question... Is my phone bricked at all?
Night before last, my phone died. I plugged it in as usual, and as usual, the charge light light for a few moments with the light in the track pad. Then the track pad light went out, and a brief second later, the charge light followed. This happened many times before, and I believe it has something to do with CWM recovery not allowing it to charge in a off state (per something I read somewhere). So I tried to start it booting before plugging the charge cord in as usual. But for some reason... it wouldn't start to boot at all! I tried to get it to boot several times, and then I noticed that the light in the track pad would just light up for a few seconds then go off.
So I decided to do a quick googl'ing, and one thing I found said that that meant it was bricked - but another said that CWM wouldn't allow charging. So I'm thinking maybe the battery's just too low of charge!
Either way, I'm not sure, and I figured this would be as good a place to ask as any.
The really odd thing, is that I haven't made any changes to the device (other than adding games) in several days. I had MikXE (I think) a couple of weeks before, and decided to run VI for a spin. Tried turning Barnacle Wi-Fi tether on, and that got me stuck in a boot loop. So I fully wiped and re-flashed VI. Everything was going fine, and I wanted to get all of it to match my preferences before doing a backup. Then - kaput!
So, if anyone can advise me as to the actual condition of the device, I'd be grateful! If it is bricked, advise to getting it going again is always appreciated! I just finished buying this from a friend, so I'd REALLY prefer not to have to replace it already.
