    If the light is on, let it charge for half an hour to an hour minimum, then try turning it on again.

    Question -- did you use the AMOLED downgrade or the downgrade for the newer screen? Either way, did you follow the proper procedure for your phone's screen? :)

    Hmm, should have checked the time stamps. Okay, you've let it charge enough if you haven't been messing with it. ;)

    i know the verizon warranty is void once rooted but is there a way i can get around that? I have insurance on it but will they give me a new one? I was downgrading to unroot and install the new update but i bricked before i got there....

    Lmao. Could work. Just be careful, you wouldn't want to shoot yourself in the foot. ;) I got my INC from Best Buy and get their Black Tie protection thing from Geek Squad. I usually cannot stand Geek Squad or Best Buy in general, but if they will replace my whole phone if something happens to it...All the better for me. But anyway, keep us updated what happens!

    Probably in diagnostic mode. Try pulling the battery.

    Do a battery pull. Insurance fraud is illegal -- no intentional dropping in water. However, the insurance company doesn't give a crap about root, just your $90 co-pay. If it's not working it's not working. Get what I'm saying here? :)

    First off theres no way to prove you dropped your phone in water on purpose inless you come on a forum writing in form what you're gonna do, bascially telling on yourself in which you just did.

    This here folks is another reason why you should not ROOT your own phone inless you really know what your doing... Your phones bricked
