    Smartphone/Android newbie here!! I decided that I wanted to play with the phone so, I downloaded Wugs' NRT, got the drivers installed correctly (it pass the drivers test at the end of set up) and did a backup of apps, data and everything. I then decided to do a backup of the phone without apps, data, etc. At the beginning of the 2nd backup the screen said something to the effect of "waiting to connect to phone" and my phone just shutoff, no powering down or anything. Now the phone won't turn on!!! I can hold the power button for minutes................nothing! Is there some way to get the phone functioning again??

    Samsung Nexus (sch-i515)
    4.1.0 JRN84D

    Any and all suggestion are welcomed!!

    Sorry guys, I panicked, then I searched!! The remove battery for 5 mins brought it back to life, I still don't know what happened though!

    I'll try searching before panicking in the future.

    Definitely spooks the bejezus out of you when that happens.

    And yes, Welcome to the Forums!! I recommend starting to learn the ADB commands when possible. I love the one click solutions, but ADB has saved my but on many occasions.
