Stone dead, no LED lights on the USB devices or anything. The primary reason I bought the A500 was for the full USB port and mine appears to be dead!
I've inspected the port with a flashlight and the pins do not appear to be damaged in any way. Does anybody have any ideas what may be going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Make sure, when you install a custom rom, you do all the Wipes and Formats as required in the Original Post (OP). This is probably where you may have made a mistake, and you still have some leftover code from the previous rom.
Or, try installing a different Rom (after all wipes and formats of course).
1. User Data/Factory Reset
3. Dalvik Cache
Then goto Mounts and Storage
1. Format System
2. Format Flexrom
Then go back and install the Rom again or try a different Rom just to check. Remember, Flexreaper is a heavily modded rom, so sometimes, you might want to try something a little less modded, like EZ Terry's or Smaury's just to make sure the basics are working.
Then if you want, install Flexreaper.
