[Q] Is it bricked or dead?
I went to bed Saturday night without charging my phone and woke up to what I thought was a dead battery. I plugged my phone in, but the charging light did not come on at all. I thought the battery was really dead and needed to be plugged in for a bit before it would activate the charging LED. 5 days later and still no charging LED. I'm using the original HTC charger and have confirmed it to be working by plugging in other devices and they have successfully charged. Some interesting things:
1. Day one, I had it plugged in for about 8 hours and went to see if I could boot into bootloader and it did. However, the phone became unresponsive and shutdown after a few seconds and would not boot again.
2. Holding down the power button + volume down will sometimes get me one vibration and then nothing. Other times the back light on the hardware keys will flash a few times but will not boot.
3. Holding down the power button for 20+ seconds does nothing.
I was S-OFF running CM10.2 build 9/16 from Deck
So, is this a bricked device or dead battery/bad charger port? The only reason I thought it might be bricked is some issues I was reading about regarding CM10.2 and TRIM.. not exactly sure though. Any help would be appreciated. I'm on Ting so getting the device repaired isn't an option.
