Any thing I can do besides wait for it to die? Icons flash but phone won't reboot no matter how long I hold power.

Okay I got it to show up in adb and rebooted it. Now I am stuck at the boot screen and I can't get to recovery, and it won't show up in adb.

just happened to me and adb does not work either.

Edit - Phew just fixed it. Had to install the driver again and got it to reboot with adb.

To reboot the phone without ADB, just hold down the Vol Up and power button for 9 seconds, the phone should shut down. If it doesn't try again. Might take a try or two but I've always been able to reboot that way after Aroma hard freezes.

Actually to force reboot into recovery it's power+ vol down.

I didn't mean reboot into recovery, this is just to shut the phone down after it froze and you can't do anything else. Like when Aroma crashes. I don't know if it's a real button combo, but I found that it worked, it just happened that last night that I reinstalled my rom and tweaks for trickdroid, and it would freeze. I found holding down power and immediately pushing the Vol Up button, after 9 seconds it will shut down. If it doesn't, try again. It'll work, frustrating, but it works.

On a side note, is there a manual out there somewhere that has all the button combos?

Force shutdown, recovery, bootloader, Safemode, stuff like that.

No issues force shutting down the phone using what I did, or getting into fastboot & recovery and stuff, but would be nice if there would be a writeup or a guide on this.

Cheers

Sometimes the forced shutdown doesn't work. You can sometimes use adb to reboot but that doesn't always work either. You just have to let the battery die.

put your phone under a bright light then hold power+volume down.
