    Angry I think I fried my droid

    Well, as the title states I think I broke my droid. Im running Smoked Glass 4.5 overclocked to 1.1ghz.

    It all started the last couple of days I was having issues with my phone using the 2.1, so i decided to completely start fresh, with removing nandroid, root, busybox, and all of that. After running 2.0.1 and getting my data loaded and such i installed smoked glass 4.5. It ran fine for the past few days with the ocassional FC, along with wifi tethering, and the over clock at 1.1ghz with the corresponding power saving protocols.

    Last night the screen went black with the keyboard lit as well as the soft buttons on the front of the screen, and would not come out of the standby state so i decided to do a battery pull. After the battery pull the Motorola logo came on for a few seconds, went off, and proceeded to give me a black screen... Its black screened since then.

    [Edit] This black screen is of course a black screen with what appears to be the black light lit

    I've tried a combination of pulling the battery with the phone plugged up and such, but no luck with recreating the Motorola logo.

    I thought the battery in the phone was dead so I left it on the charger for the majority of the night... .

    Wierd thing is that the phone is actually recognized through ADB, however i am not really able to access anything on the sdcard.

    Any thoughts?

    Does booting into recovery (TURN OFF.....TURN ON WHILE HOLDING X Button) do anything for you?

    Yeahhhh, I actually located the RSD Lite tool while waiting for a reply to the thread, so i thank you BayouFlyFisher and wuyanks. Unfortunately, when i connect the phone and put the phone into the "flash" mode and press start on the application, nothing happens....

    Do you think the heat got to the processor? I have a body glove on the phone, but the phone has always remained pretty cool to the touch for me, except when it was charging

    In terms of this hardware issue, do you think that Verizon will be able to tell that the processor was over clocked?

    I would be shocked if they could diagnose that in the store. Besides, what is the worst that could happen at this point? Give it a whirl...see if they hook you up with a new or refurb droid.

    I really don't want to fork money for a new droid, but if the processor has fried theres I don't see any way on how they could tell ya know. and if im the first one to do this then they wouldn't have any knowledge =]
