    Hey, leave it plugged in over night. Don't touch it. Plugged into the wall not pc. In the morning, do a battery pull then turn back on.

    This happened to me during the wire trick and the juopunutbear staff called it the deep sleep. Phone was completely unresponsive, not even a charge light, but sure enough after enough time, it woke back up.

    They told me 8 hrs. I think I checked it before bed after about 5 hrs and it was still unresponsive. Left it all night while I slept. In the morning still unresponsive. I thought my phone was done. Did a battery pull and then it loaded into the juopunutbear screen. Tried the wire trick with a new sufficient wire, got it first try with a better wire. It was super scary and i thought I was bricked but I have confidence you'll recover.

    Did you pull the battery before trying to power on?
    If not, take it out...count to 60 (don't know how long really, but give it a minute) then put it back and try again.

    Well my best advice at this point would be to use the juopunutbear support channel. Click support at the top of the page on the unlimited.io site. They will be able to offer you the best help as they are the pros with the software. The advice I gave was from my personal experience and is all I can really offer as far as support. I hope that they can get you sorted out. Good luck! :)

    i'm not familiar with your device, but how did you root the phone? did you get an error when you rooted it? if so what was it. is the phone s-off now or is it still s-on?

    i was doing s-off and the wire got stuck in one of the little holes
    first, i followed instructions, did wire trick, phone vibrated and rebooted to juopuntu screen and wire was still on, after about 5 sec i was able to remove it..and the controlbear said *do wire trick now* again..it never said *successful*..at that point my pc gave me *couldnt install drivers for phone* notifications, then controlbear couldnt find a device.. and my phone was off..couldnt do anything to it since then.

    As brian706 already suggested you should go to the #juopunutbear IRC channel via the support page on the unlimited.io website and tell them that. It can't hurt anything and they have dealt with a lot of failed attempts at the wire trick.

    thats a great point. i have used team unlimited's irc chat before for my phone. they always have someone there who is willing to help. i'm sure they have more experience with something like that.

    hmmmm yeah i just checked and so far nobody has responded.

    it is not much to understand really, you just type in your question at the bottom and if someone is there you will get a response.

    so far nobody is there. it is the weekend so peeps might be out so just be patient which i understand is hard to do when your phone is in the state that it is in.

    i wish i can be of more help though:eek:

    A lot of the people that provide support there are in Europe and Asia. You might do better trying again later tonight given the time difference.

    Reminds me of those Bud Light football commercials: " it's only superstition if it doesn't work"

    OP, have you tried holding in the power button for 30 seconds?

    have you tried taking the battery out and while the battery is out hold the power button down for maybe 15 seconds? idk if somebody said that but that's suppose to drain the capacitors in the phone. that's if this phone got capacitors
