If a new ROM hasn't fixed it then it does sound like a hardware problem, I can't think of anything else it could be. Sorry.


s*** :/
I don't hope it's the hardware, and I can't see why it should be. It happened after i updated the ROM, and i was sitting the the phone in my hand when it froze :S

Get over to XDA-Developers and see if they can help.

Good luck.

I have had the exact same original problem with 2 different phones.

Problem: Turn on, green light stays on for a second or two and then switches off. Both times the problem was the main ribbon cable.

Solution: Open up the phone and reconnect the main ribbon connector that runs between the two halves of the phone. Hope this helps someone!

Instructions:
  • Simply remove battery cover
  • Remove battery
  • Unscrew the two screws at the bottom of phone that was under the battery cover
  • Unclip the back phone casing. I used an old credit card and wedges it on the inside of the casings and ran it around unclipping all the clips.
  • Unscrew the (clear) speaker assembly
  • Slide the phone 3/4 open, lift the mainboard and gain access to the ribbon cable.
  • Simply ease it off and clip it back on again.
Note: I had to refit the connector around 5 times to get it right on both occasions. The pins are very fine. I found pressing the ribbon side down first helped.

Good luck!

true - yet you need skills to do that and a service manual is helpful. see also this post: http://www.modaco.co...10-disassembly/
