    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.
