my problem looks like a bunch of others, but no solution seems to help.
Maybe I overlooked the right answer, I would love your help.
I planned to give my FP2 to a friend. When I turned it on everything worked. I had full access to all my old data, apps etc. The battery was on 30% and charging just fine. I performed a factory reset. When the device popped back on and asked to start up the new account I wanted to turn the SIM card in. Here the trouble started:
I couldn’t turn off the phone so I forced it by removing the battery.
I placed the SIM card but then it didn’t turn on.
I plugged it on the charger, the yellowish led burned, it showed the black fairphone powered by android screen and after that the charging animation.
I could prompt the animation and turn the screen off by clicking the ON button.
But I could not turn the device on, nor prompt recovery mode or fastboot mode.
I removed the battery for over een half hour.
Recharged it, the led turned green.
Now it doesnt show anything unless I remove the charger: the now frozen charge animation.
I opended the device cleaned all the modules, extra secured my battery.
But still: It doesnt turn on, no recovery or fastboot. And it doesnt show anything unless I remove the charger: the now frozen charge animation.
My laptop sees I am connecting a drive but doesn’t regonize the device.
Did my FP2 died in my hands after the factory reset?
