    Screen doesn't work at all, not one bit. That's the most annoying thing about it.

    Just 6 days old :(

    It fell from a height of 4ft on its face on a wood floor.

    I'm more pissed off that it's sold out on google until further notice, or pay

    I wonder if having the bumper on it would have saved it at all. Is there a screen protector on there?

    The bumper or protective case probably would've saved it. Ironically the case is in the post lol, typical.

    And yes that is a screen protector. I don't usually apply them that shabbily, it's from where i took it off to inspect the damage :p

    I find it odd that the screen doesnt work at all at such a slight fall. Disconcerting even. I litterally threw my Atrix in my garage at the cement floor(bending the frame) and shattered the glass. It was even in a seidio case. Wouldnt you know, it never even powered down. I put packing tape over the glass to keep myself from getting cut and the touch screen still worked.

    Yeah that's what I'm most annoyed about.

    I've seen some horrifically smashed screens, much worse than mine, and they still function ok.

    Isn't the screen supposed to be closer to the glass? That's probably why it isn't working anymore.

    Bump

    Ok, so I'm gonna flog it on ebay. Ordered another on Google today.

    How do I reset this thing? The screen doesn't work, can only use the volume and power buttons

    Owwwwwwww! Sorry, dude!

    Did you have any custom recovery on it? That would be a game changer.

    If you had debugging mode enabled, you could probably use the Nexus 4 toolkit to reflash it to stock or simply unlock the bootloader, which will wipe the phone and reset.

    If not, there's a slim chance you could use the keys, but there's be no way to verify it was successful.

    I already flashed CWM on mine so i can't tell you the exact key presses to use for stock recovery. I know with power off, you pres and hold the volume down and power button for 10-15 seconds. Then press down vol once to select recover and press power to confirm, but after that I don't know what the key presses are. Maybe someone else who still has stock could give you the exact sequence of button presses.

    yeah, it's unrooted etc.

    I've held vol down and power button, selected recovery mode, then it shows a pic of the android robot laying down and it says No Command :-/

    That must have been some impact. It looks like the stock recovery is corrupted. I do think, though, that if you can get it into fastboot mode (the first screen) you can unlock the bootloader with the toolkit and that will wipe the phone. Then you can decide whether or not to re-lock it.

    Was only dropped from four feet on a wood floor!

    Anyways, corrupted?! Just from a drop? S**t! Can't put it into fastboot mode either.

    I did, by pressing volume up and down, and power button, manage to get it in download mode? What the hell's that?

    I thought the screen shot you are showing (the first with recovery at the top) was fastboot mode. Have you tried the toolkit?
