So this morning I woke up next to my phone and the screen appeared to be "on" (no picture or anything, but there was enough back lighting on that I could tell it was on) but would not display any picture. Also, this thing was HOT.

Being half awake and slightly in a hurry I did a battery pull to reset my phone. It appeared to be booting up fine, but when it came time to unlock the screen, no dice. It was totally unresponsive. To make matters worse, it appears to have fried or seriously damage my SD card reader (SD card has a little scorch mark but still works in other devices thankfully)

I was running the new GB build by Pete and and OC kernel to 1ghz and have been since it came out. I'll be honest, there were signs my phone didn't agree with this ROM and I should have just restored and old build, but didn't. I understand I'll have to get a replacement, but my question here is, is there anyway to return to stock without making use of the touchscreen or the SD card slot? I can boot into recovery but thats about it. I figure all hope is lost but I figured if anyone has an idea I'm willing to try.

Why do you need to make it stock again, if it won't turn on who is going to know.

If you don't have a SD card your pretty much screwed, recovery is worthless.

Well question my ethics if you will but it was under warranty and I want my phone back lol. I have "bad mojo" about sending out a rooted phone booting with a custom ROM. Touchscreen working or not.

Oh my bad...misread the part about it actually booting up.

You could probably unroot it since it will boot up, but won't be able to change the ROM since your SD card doesn't work and the touch screen is un-responsive to mount it to put a stock ROM onto.

Does SBF require an SD card? I'm not familiar with the process, but if it's via ADB from a PC, he shouldn't need an SD card to push the SBF onto the device.

Hmm, good thinking that could work, I've only heard of people doing that with their X's though, not quite sure if there's a method for the OG though.
