    Hey guys, I have a completely stock Atrix 2 that's been running fine since 2011, never been dropped, wet, rooted or rommed. I don't know what happened, last night I plugged it in to charge and browsed the web for a bit, when I woke up this morning, it wouldn't even boot. I need help desperately, I can make videos, take pictures, give you any info you ask for, but I don't even know where to start. Please help ASAP! Thanks.

    If it has a removable battery (sorry I don't remember) pull it out for 60 seconds, try again.

    What happens when it's plugged into the charger?

    If anything weird, try another usb cable. If still weird, try another charger. If you don't have one, try charging from a pc usb port.

    Which part is the battery? Where do I go from here?

    A removeable battery is like on a tv remote control or something - the back pops off and the battery comes out.

    :(

    I'm so sorry I mentioned it.

    Now, please put your phone back together. :(

    Is hot glue ok to use for putting it back together??

    I still don't understand where the battery is. Is it like a cmos battery somewhere? If I take the motherboard out, will that disconnect power for long enough?

    No, don't take anything else out.

    Please try to just reassemble in reverse order.

    You have non-removable battery - for that we just had to push some buttons from the outside.

    I don't think hot glue will work. Not sure what to say.

    Sorry guys, I had to go afk for a few minutes. I'd just like to post a review of my experience with the Atrix 2. As an android device, it's not very effective. As for reversing the effects of vitiligo, it's an amazing medical tool. The process is extremely painful, and perhaps not the best choice for most people who are happy with their appearance. If you want to look tougher and/or are feeling unusually cold, this is a great little phone! Thanks again for your help mod. BTW, anyone want an atrix 2 for parts? Cameras, leds, screen, and case are all ok. Webdock is not too bad. If you're interested, let me know. I'd just want you to cover shipping.
