Hi to all.
My phone is dead today :(
Black screen, not react to nothing. Removing battery not help, charging don't do nothing. Looks like a completely dead... (
What happened:
Yesterday evening I drove with Waze and BT/Tethering ON from "Car connection" app (~2 hours). All was OK.
At night I put my phone to charging and this morning all looked ok. When I drove to work I activated BT/Tethering ON from "Car connection" app again and saw it connected to my car without any problem. After 15 min, when I arrived, I noticed that screen is freezes and not react to nothing. After few seconds phone got black screen. I was thinking it just another unexpected reboot, but no... phone is not restarted, no boot loop, nothing...

What already tried:
1. Removing battery for more than 30 minutes - nothing
2. Charging - don't do nothing, looks like it not change at all...
3. Connect to PC - nothing
4. Long press on power button - nothing
5. Cleaning connectors in the phone and battery - nothing
6. Connecting charger to phone without battery - yellow led flashing once.
7. Trying to access to Recovery mode and like expected I can't (Vol down + Power).

Can I still do something or my phone is really dead?

Finally today (08.10.15) I've got my phone back !!!
Again BIG thanks to HtheB!
Now a lot of work to restore all my stuff...

How about charging battery with external charger or going to recovery mode?

I don't know if I can find somewhere external charger. About recovery mode I will try it at home, when I will finish work. But like I said the battery was fully charged this morning and now it not react to charging or connecting to PC.

1) Remove battery for >30min. 2) What happens if you connect charger w/o battery plugged in (should flash yellowish...)? 3) Try to start in recovery mode (as mentioned above...) Good luck!

Did you try recovery mode? See this link:

There you could try number 5 and 2. If that doesn't work you could try to reset your device (all data gets lost though). I had once a similar problem with another device, where it looked like, but wasn't "dead".

Edit: Just saw that there's a long list of comments, so maybe you already tried everyhthing :-/

Yep... Already tried :( Can't access to nothing...

Man...I'm sorry :-(

Gutted. Will you be looking to replace your device with another Jolla?, I hope so, your input towards this device has been invaluable, at least to me. As a result of your knowledge and ownership of a Jolla device, I have learned how to create an RPM on my device, even if, so far, I have only got one app under my belt, but only with your help. In fact, I had the idea, you made it happen, so thank you for that @schturman. :) I hope you find a way to replace your device or even revive the old one. Good luck man! :)
