Boot loop sorta
This is my best description of what happened. Any thoughts?
I was running AJK 4.6 and SuperNexus 2. I think my (up until now normal) battery went dead and the phone turned off (I'd received low battery warning). I plugged it in but it is apparently no longer charging.
While on the charger it turned itself on (middle of the night) and started running in some kind of bootloop. I would see the Samsung logo then it would flash a couple times and then sometimes cycle back and sometimes turn off. I probably should have waited until I could get a new battery but instead I started messing with it. I started thinking something may have gone wrong in the ROM/kernel/stweaks when it went dead so I decided to Odin back to stock. I did that and the same thing keeps happening. Stock successfully installed but won't boot. I see the boot logo then it either cycles back or turns off. As long as it's plugged in it randomly turns on and tries to boot. Battery does get hot. With just the battery the hard keys might (or might not) flash but nothing else happens. In all this I've never got recovery to boot although obviously got in download mode ok.
I'm actually due for an upgrade so may simply go ahead and get my SG4 but I'd still like to get some files from internal sd. Is this just a bad battery causing this? Shouldn't it boot when plugged in though?
