I applied the POCKET GO 2 "ROGUE" CFW 1.0.4, which was working fine (great work, Ninoh-FOX!). I was curious whether it supported USB host mode like RetroFW2 on my RS97, so I plugged it into my macbook, only to have the POCKET GO 2 shutdown and become unable to be turned back on. The screen doesn't even seem to receive power, so it doesn't seem like things are initializing properly at a pretty low level.
It definitely gets *some* power, as it is still able to charge the battery to full (the charging light turns off after being connected to a charger for a while). I've tried letting it sit without a battery for a while, tried leaving it plugged in for a while, tried powering it on while plugged in but with no battery, tried the original sd card, tried holding various button combination along with power, tried holding power for extended periods of time... But it seems like the only part of the device still working is the charging circuit.
Is it well and truly dead? Did plugging it into a computer USB clobber it? Should I avoid that on my next one? Or did I just lose the quality control lottery this time?
Still holding out hope that it might be revived, so any ideas appreciated!!!
