Re: Dev Alpha is Dead

What if you leave it connected to the charger and let it charge for several hours, and while STILL connected to the charger, remove the battery and replace. What happens?

Re: Dev Alpha is Dead

What happened before it died? Anything notable such as installing an application (from PC)? Seems odd to just die like that. Hope you sort it though Smiley Happy

Re: Dev Alpha is Dead

I cannot remember exactly, but from what i know, i just upgraded to windows 8 and the battery had drained and i was charging via USB and not a charger.
