    I had the 1.7 ghz, downthemachine kernal loaded and rooted on stock. Was flying. Then charging over night and now it wont turn on, no red light, nothing!?!

    Im going to try to send it back to zte. I dont care that i voided the warranty, its worth a shot.

    But does anyone know what could have caused it to just fail??

    Sounds like you hit the thermal switch. Smartvanman had a similar issue. Pull batt over night let it cool down and the try charging in a few hours

    Oh and dont leave it at 1.7 i recomend max 1.4 and when you need the juice, bump it to 1.7. Only use max for short periods of time. You will kill your phone if you keep doing that.

    Yeah, I let my gf use it to call over WiFi. And three days later, no workie. Hmm...my guess. She got frustrated and chucked it at the wall. I'm not sure, but do you think zte would replace it?

    If it was purchased in the last 12 months yes, however don't tell them it is rooted. Make up a fake story of what happened.

    I'll second that. As a former frequent-themal-switch-hitter, I agree this sounds like a possibility. I would always pull the battery, set the phone in front of the AC, and in like five minutes... FIXED!

    I leave my max at 1.8 all the time without a hitch, bit I have notices on certain chargers (in my case while charging via my PC's USB port) the phone will get hot while on Wi-Fi.

    Hope that helps! :)

    Yeah sounds like my situation first my audio port got fried some how, then I was playing need for Speed and my phone just turned off wouldn't boot back up the battery was flaming lol sat it in front of a fan 3 days later it's back to life but it doesn't really matter now because I found the sequence at radio Shack for 99 dollars so I had to get it was just going to replace the warp but it was 129?for some odd reason..... The sequence needs a major overhaul but it's usable unlike the warp on stock

    I put mine in the fridge to cool it off back in the day when I was on the warp. It worked like a charm. Obviously I didn't leave it there forever...just about 5 minutes tops.

    I have mine at 1.8 max all the time... the reason why my thermal switch went off is that it was a combination of things...I had it at sio performance while charging on my laptop and wifi tethering(bad combination)... i find for performance you are better off with sio as a scheduler but cfq is nicer to your phone... hope letting it sit for a while helps you and leave it off and try to charge it with an ac charger..
