[Q] Newbie Hard reset phone shuts off
I have picked up a Fascinate to play around with. I have flashed CM10 onto a Nook Color, love it, and would like to do the same to this Samsung.
If there is an RTFM, please point me to it, and I won't bother you all anymore.
Issue is...I go into recovery in order to do a reset/wipe data. The Samsung logo appears, I get the menu, and then the phone just shuts off. Am I dealing with a hardware issue, or did the person I got it from mess up a flash?
How can I tell if this phone can work again? Any help appreciated. I could start the downloads and see if I can just flash away, but I was hoping someone could save me the effort by verifying that this is a hardware issue, rather than a screwed up OS.
Thanks in advance...Eric
