    Motorola XT1080M (Droid MAXX)
    For starters, I have a Motorola Droid MAXX running Android 4.4.4. Today I was in the process of downgrading my firmware from SU6-7.3 to SU6-7 in an effort to eventually root my phone. Everything was going well for most of the process until my phone screen suddenly went black. I am no longer able to turn it on or enter recovery mode. The strange thing is that when I plug my phone into my computer I still hear the tone which indicates it is connected. So the computer still recognizes the phone.

    I'm not sure what to do here. From what I've read, when a phone is hard bricked it will be unrecognizable by the computer so I am hoping that I can still fix it. The phone is still under warranty so in the worst case scenario could I possibly just take it to the store and play dumb to get a new one? I'm really running out of options here so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Downgrading a phone with a locked bootloaders is always trouble. Try flashing the latest and see if it will come back.

    Hold the power button down for up to a minute and see what happens.
