    My DX2 was acting up this morning. Wouldn't play audio. The app froze up. So I powered it down. Now it won't power up. I used it this morning to answer emails with no issue. It has not been dropped or exposed to water in the past 48 hours (never actually).


    I can't get it to power on or do anything.

    Sounds like it has crashed. It's really on but the screen is locked up. Have you pulled the battery?

    So it does nothing? No Moto logo? No splash screen? It should power on when you plug up power to it.

    Nope nothing. The only time I can get any activity is that I can sometimes get the green LED to flicker if I plug it in with the battery removed. But even that doesn't seem to be consistant.

    If it will not power up using the power cord then you have a brick.

    If I plug it into the computer, with no battery, the LED comes on. But it goes out when the battery is in.

    Ok so it's a brick with an LED. Sorry dude there is no fixing this. You need to get a replacement phone.

    Damn. I don't hack my phones, I don't root, I don't screw with bootloaders or recovery files or any of that stuff. And my phone still gets bricked. Well I might as well hack the hell out of now.


    OCCUPY BOOTLOADER!

    Seriously, now I guess I have to swap my number to my aunt's old BB until my new phone gets here.

    Just thought of this. Have you removed the sd card? Try to power up the phone with out the card in it.

    My new (refurb) X2 will be at my door tomorrow. Now I just got the update last week, what are the chances my new phone will be current?

    I'm wondering if the battery was toast. Seems to be the only constant. Too bad you didn't have a spare battery to try.
