    Default Note Randomly Hard Bricked

    Basically, I can't turn it on, doesn't charge (or at least doesn't appear to charge), and I can't even turn it on into download mode. The phone is essentially nonresponsive.
    I had been playing 2048 (the official app that is linked to the website) while it was charging, took it off the charger because I was sitting in a fairly awkward position. Set it down to get a drink and came back and my phone was bricked.
    It runs a presumably older version of Jelly Beans (the rom) with MJE. The phone was initially rooted with Kingo, I have SafeStrap, and was flashed with the custom rom either late-December or early-January. I did not do any other flashing after this, and pretty much ran my phone as per usual. This came pretty much out of the blue maybe a day after I arrived in Cali for Fanime.

    Far from an expert here, but could it be the battery has gone bad somehow? Maybe get a replacement (and somehow verify it's got at least 50% charge) and see if you can at least get into download mode? Can't think the phone totally died doing what you were doing. As I said though, I'm no expert just throwing something out there.

    Or maybe remove both battery and sim card for one minute, reinstall and try again.
