    It's been 2 weeks since I got my replacement droid and I already have another problem. The phone won't turn on.. no matter how many battery pulls I try, or even attempting to reboot into recovery. I know for a fact that the battery isn't dead because I popped it into my old droid which had a broken charge port and it was at a solid 60%.

    I am/was using Cyanogen mod 6 with the REVOlution theme and REVOlution remix installed over it. I noticed yesterday that it started to randomly reboot a few times. It also did it this morning then stopped for a while. When school ended I took out my phone and it was off and wouldn't turn back on. I did try leaving it on a charger for an hour and still got nothing. This seems pretty helpless so I'm not really expecting anyone to know what to do.. I just thought I'd try my luck before heading to the VZW store seeing as I'm rooted I don't want to potentially void my warranty.

    can you boot into recovery or the bootloader (holding up on dpad when powering on)?

    Yeah I have insurance but I assumed this was a software glitch and that insurance covered physical damage or a lost phone.

    Would that be better than asking for a replacement via warranty?
