    Hi there. I was playing Super Mario world on a emulator and suddenly the phone locked up and froze. The screen went black!

    My phone won't turn on now!

    What has happened? :(

    I'm running Android 2.3.4

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What emulator was it? Have you tried taking out the battery?

    Sounds like a Hardware problem. Ive heard a few people having problems with the cpu so that could be it

    Your phone is boot looping, you were too aggressive in removing stuff...

    turn your phone off, and try holding down the back button as you plug in your phone... If the led is green, goto wotanserver.com, choose the firmware appropriate for your phone, and it'll do a painless flash... You will lose all type data, though...

    did you ever connect it to your computer via usb? maybe you deleted your OS, is that possible?.

    Deleting the os takes malicious talent... The important stuff is on a locked, protected partition... I've been trying to figure our how to get to it for a little time now, but so far no luck :p

    So there's no problem if my phone freezes and I take the battery out and put it back in again and the phone starts working ? Do I need to hard reset or anything ?

    Can this happen if my phone memory is low ? I have 88 MB free.

    And If I keep doing this will the phone eventually mess up ?

    1) turn off phone
    2) hold back button as you plug in your phone
    IF THE LED IS GREEN: continue
    IF THE LED IS NOT GREEN: congrats, you have a paperweight...
    3) go here: http://www.wotanserver.com/en/page/tutorial-debranding-flash-sony-ericsson

    Read what they say to do, download, install the drivers, and then download and run the client
    4) turn off phone
    5) when the wotan client program tells you to plug in your phone, hold the back button as before such that the led turns green
    6) chose applicable language and firmware version...
    7) phone works!!!

    Pull the battery. it'll stop booting.
    You'll want to have the phone completely off before you plug it in (i.e. Pull battery, wait 30 seconds, put battery back in, DO NOT TOUCH THE POWER BUTTON, hold down the back button, while holding the back button plug in the usb cable connected to your computer. The led should turn green.)
