Got it, and plugged it in (dead battery). The charge light indicator turns on, and the screen turns on with the charging animation, but only for a split second. Then it goes to the splash screen for about 10 seconds or so, screen turns off for a few seconds, then right back on and up to the splash screen.
Tried holding the Vol down to get into bootloader, but so far no good. The only way for it to stop the loop is for the battery to die. When I plug it into an outlet or a computer, it immediately goes right back into the boot loop.
So, is there anyway to save this? Or am I SOL?
