    Well. i was sitting there playing with my SS 4.8 droid in the lock screen just doing random passwords with the dots. and bam. it said rebooting. in the middle of nowhere. and then it rebooted to the droid eye and just froze. a neverending bootloop. so i restored to a previous nandroid and then reinstalled 4.8. and it seemed to work except my 3g didnt work for like 10 minutes. and everytime i turned the phone to the side to landscape mode. it froze and i had to turn of the screen and turn it back on. then i rebooted it and found that the screen was missing the boot up screen. no moto logo. no eye. just a black lit up screen. held x, no recovery.

    i cant do anything. literally

    HELP.

    i believe i am officially bricked.

    Couple things....either your battery is completely dead or its fried. Neither are unheard of. I don't think you did anything to cause this. Do you have access to another battery?

    Well....sounds like something shorted then. If switching batteries doesn't work then it is probably dead in the water. Like I said I don't think there's anything you did, sounds like a hardware problem. Only thing to do is take it in and get a replacement. It should still be under the 1yr manufacturers warranty.

    I don't know what they may replace it with, but if it won't boot at all they won't know its rooted. They will try the same things you did tonight and if it won't boot with a fresh battery its dead. At this point root is a moot issue. This sounds like a hardware issue, seems like something shorted out. I would just take it in and explain what happened....and they should be able to replace it under warranty.

    Just FYI when I first got my droid at launch it had a faulty headphone jack, I rooted it and toyed with it anyway. I returned it under warranty with the Superuser app right there and noone said a word.... Now I know they aren't "supposed" to take it, but lets be honest here, they don't care. The contract is ALL they care about.

    I've also returned a charger cable that I was spinning around like nunchuka and got messed up. No cost, no questions.


    Oh, and to the OP. Sorry, but your Droid is toast.
