    OK, I did the polaris_update.dat on my device. Everything was going great, until the screen went blank and won't turn on. Every once in a while I can get a flash, but nothing else. I've tried tethering it to my pc, and nothing happens. Putting the power cord in doesn';t even turn on the LED light. I'm not sure if it's saveable, but I thought I'd try. I just got the thing in the mail yesterday.

    Thank you

    Try holding the Volume + and power button for a full 10 seconds. Then hold the power button for 3 seconds... for me, it then comes to the Linux/Android screen. At that point, I turn it off, then hold the power for 3 and it should give you the startup notification.

    Not a clue as to why this seems to work, but I've had it happen a few times... thought I had a 60-buck paperweight until I farted around a bit... figured, hell, couldn't be worse... <smile>
