Need help with refurbished DROID x
Problem: Phone wont turn on, at all. Completely unresponsive
Now for the lengthy story.
My original x had liberty aosp running nicely with an OC set on boot at 1200. A nice clump of pixels died randomly one day, so I called verizon for a replacement. I got my replacment refurbished X in the mail, and sbf'd to froyo, for rooted gingerbread upgrade.
I nandroid backed up my old X. I then installed liberty aosp to my new X, and then immediately restored the nandroid from the old X.
My new phone was running great for about a day, then I went and added some changes from the UOT Kitchen, and installed the app that makes the logcat the boot animation.
Again, the phone worked fine for a day or so, then while I was running google maps, it rebooted randomly.
It went through the boot logo, to recovery, so I just hit reboot. It went all through the boot animation, then back to the boot logo, then back through the boot animation.
I made it back to the home screen, then left it alone. After a while it rebooted again on its own. Sometimes the screen would black out, and be completely unresponsive. I pulled the battery, then put it back in, and it wouldn't turn on.
Sometimes, it would take the battery being out for 5 minutes for the phone to accept it, and turn on.
Now, just repeat the two previous paragraphs a few times, and you will get what happened to me.
After a while, I just restored my old working nandroid from the old X. It too had the same problem. I figured it might be my OC, so I set the settings back to stock. Same thing still..
I was then going to wipe data, and install liberty aosp again. The phone was in the recovery menu, so I went to mount usb storage, plugged it in to the computer, and nothing happened.
So, I unmounted usb storage, and hit reboot. The phone booted to the bootloader menu. I unplugged the computer, then tried to power off the phone, but the power button didn't work. So I pulled the battery......
Now the phone wont turn on at all. The battery was at a 70 percent charge at the final time it worked.
Once, I got the phone to boot to the bootloader menu, but once I got my sbf ready to go, the bootloader menu had frozen. Phone was unresponsive to inserting usb, and the sbf program didn't read my phone as being connected.
Again, im now back to a for real bricked phone, that when I hold the power button, it wont turn on. I did leave the phone plugged in, and later today, im going to try using a friends battery...
My dilemma, is now I can't send the phone back for another replacement, for fear it will work at the shop, and they will see my rootedness, then charge me for a new phone, even though im 99% percent sure nothing I did caused this crap.
Anybody have any ideas?
