From what I've found through google it sounds like its bricked. I was ready for a new phone anyway but I'm kind of bummed because they are selling for ~$150 here on craigslist and I found a Gnex for only $175 off contract. I kept that thing in perfect condition for over a year. 25 bucks for an upgrade would have been awesome.
Is there any way to fix it? I know the warranty is void but is there any way HTC could fix it? Even if I had to pay $50 or something it would be worth it.
