    Exclamation My D2G Just Completely Died.

    Hey Everyone-

    Okay, so a little background on my D2G:

    Running Liberty 2.0.1, flashed it with the d2g rommer (using the correct version). No problems since I did all of this about 3 weeks ago.

    Just now when I slid the keyboard out and transitioned to landscape, the entire screen scrambled. I could make out my background and homescreen icons (kind of), I closed the keyboard and it returned to normal. I tried to open it again, and it happened again. This time when I closed the keyboard the jumbled screen remained... jumbled. I removed the battery to do a hard reset and now my D2G won't turn back on. Or at least the display won't turn back on. When I re-insert the battery and hold the power button, the 4 buttons on the bottom light up (and respond to being touched in that they give haptic feedback). I've noticed the screen with slightly light up and then go completely dark in about 2 second cycles.

    What to do from here? Rsd/sbf? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Update:

    I hooked it up via the USB, and the computer found it. In addition, the LED is blinking like I have notifications. Also when I slide to unlock, it gives me the feedback like I unlocked it. I think the Display just died.

    Seeing as I've rooted the phone and installed a custom ROM, I don't think I can just walk into VZW and say "the display is broken", for fear they'll realize I've voided my warranty by rooting and installing that custom ROM. Will VZW not issue me a new phone in this instance if I turn it in the a rooted, custom rom?

    Should I SBF? I tried launching RSD Lite and it IS NOT seeing the device? I've used RSD before, with this machine and everything. The thing is I can't even see if I'm getting into the bootloader because my display is completely dead. Very strange. Advice?

    Edit. If you can do that stuff and the display doesn't work then you probably need to take it back to Verizon. Sometimes the display goes, it happens.

    Yeah, I followed these instructions, I held the button and started it properly. Some of the timing of the RSD flash requires being able to see the display, which I cant. The phone is now making noises like it works, its just the display is dead.

    Get it back to the original ROM, call VZW (store's don't do replacements anymore) and tell them the display is dead, they can ship you a replacement phone. The Droid 2 Global is definitely under warranty as it hasn't been out long.

    Thank you for replying. My question is, will VZW tell me to go screw in light of my custom ROM and rooted situation?

    It won't go into bootloader, I hold up on the dpad and power on, but it goes straight to my normal boot (which obviously I can't see, but I can hear the things my phone does when it turns on, and the indicator lights start going off, about notifications and such).

    If you can't get it flashed back to the original rom then you risk getting charged $299. If you can get it flashed back, just don't tell them.

    This phone was a replacement sent to me less than a month ago, if I can't flash it I think I'll just take it in and play dumb if something comes up regarding the custom ROM.

    "Custom ROM? What's that? Is it good? I don't know anything about phones/computers, this is what came in the box."
