    Broken any Android device?

    So has anyone here ad their Androi device dying on them? By dying I mean that it wouldn't turn on anymore or that it would turn on but but remained unusuable?
    How did it happen? What did you do to fix it?

    Happens to a lot of people all the time. Especially those you keep trying out new ROMs every other day. And most of the time, the solution is as simple as flashing a stock factory firmware image to restore it from the dead (soft-brick). You will lose root access if you do that, but rooting it again is no big deal

    If it turns on and you can get to the recovery mode there are a few thing you can do. You can factory reset your phone from there(you will loose all your data). There are a few other things you can do in recovery mode as well, but I don't remember what they are. On the Samsung Galaxy S3 you hold down the home button, volume up and power button to get into recovery mode.

    Usually, if you're able to get to at least bootloader mode, you're golden It means you can use various tools for.e.g Flashtool for Xperia phones, or ODIN for Samsung, or RSD Lite for Moto devices) or definitely ADB to flash the stock firmware image and revive your device

    So far my phone didn’t fail me over a year now. Though I restore to manufacture settings a couple of times. I really love my Samsung, I can say it has a good quality. I hope it will last for another year.
