    My phone just stopped working today. It has been fine for a year, and today I took it out of my pocket to use it and it was black. It won't turn on at all on battery power and when I plug it into the wall the screen turns on, but stays black. It is a rooted D1 with CM7, CWR and Prime's deprimed kernel installed on it. I have done nothing to it today other than a few phone calls and internet browsing. I upgraded to the latest version of CM7 a couple of days ago, but it has been working great. I tried taking the SD card out and plugging it into the wall just to make sure it wasn't a problem with that but it had no affect.

    Seems like I need to take it to Verizon, but I want to make sure there's no way to turn it on and see that its rooted before I take it into them. Great timing on this, by the way, because I fly to DC and Boston this week for business. I really need my phone!

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: I get haptic feedback like I'm unlocking the lockscreen, but the phone is not displaying anything.

    That doesn't sound bricked at all. Just sounds like your screen went out on you. I could be wrong, but those aren't the typical "bricked" symptoms.

    Sounds like an LCD issue. Probably gave up.. I think you could find on craigslist someone who would fix that for cheap.. if you are out of warranty.

    Tapped from my Sourcerized D1
