    Today I just woke up to a completely unusable phone.
    I left it on the charger last night, today it has no led notification light sayin it's getting charged.
    It won't turn on at all, It won't go into hboot.
    Droid Incredible
    SkyRaider 3.3 Sense S-Off
    CWMR 2.5.0.5
    stock kernel

    There has been absolutely nothing I have changed with the phone's software over the last 15 days. It has been running fine and charging great until this point.
    Is there anything I can do? Could it just be a fried battery somehow?

    I also have an Energi-to-go micro usb adapter to charge the phone.
    Whenever I put that in the phone now, it signals me that it is charging the phone with a green LED, but when I try turning the power on the LED turns off.

    Check your battery terminals. You may need to clean them. This hasn't happened on my d1 or my incredible, but have had it happen on other phones.

    One good tip for battery contact cleaning- try a pencil eraser. It works wonders.

    I took out the battery several times but never cleaned the contact areas. I actually took it down to a vwz store, dudeman takes battery out, puts it in. (im thinkin cool he is doin exactly what I did great help) but then he asks me what's skyraider 3.3? I looked at it and was like dope its working. snatched that paperweight back and took off

    Did he get your name or number first?

    I have found the verizon sales reps don't care if your rooted. From what I have gathered they root themselves. Actually I have gotten some good tips from my local vzw reps. The only warning I have gotten is make sure you unroot before you send it in for warranty work. Then she started to explain how to unroot..lol

    I would probably get the only tech in the state that was a jerk! These things seem to happen to me... when a buddy of mine got his d1 they had it rooted for him before he even left the store! Lol
