### Jolla1 boots only into fastboot (recovery impossible). blinks and vibrates only.

Hi, my Jolla1 is dead suddenly, I have removed battery, bought a new batter etc. but it cannot be switched on using only the battery.

If a plug-in the power cable the phone switches on but vibrates and blinks only endlessly, nothing to see on the screen except if I press and hold power, then the power charging symbol is shown for a second and disappears again. If I press power down the fastboot mode starts, but recovery cannot be started because with the battery only (without power cable) the phone cannot be switched on.

1. What is the problem?

2. How can I fix this boot-loop?

I have already connect the Jolla to a PC and could send

sudo fastboot -I 0x2931 reboot


but it still shows the same booting problem after the restart...

1. What is the problem?problem? It looks like the battery contacts of the phone are interrupted.

2. How can I fix this boot-loop?

I have already connect the Jolla to a PC and could send

sudo fastboot -I -i 0x2931 reboot
