    Hey guys
    I just dropped my phone and the phone is refusing to turn on.
    The LED light is blinking red four times in sequence and its repeating that sequence only.

    Any methods to get it to boot up or should I take it down to a hardware guy to check if i've messed it up completely?

    Please help!!!

    similar to having no MFI, damage to the flash rom maybe? could be a wrong guess tho

    how does it exactly blink? blinks four times then stops for a few seconds and comes back blinking again?

    Whats MFI?
    Its just not turning on.. I've been trying desperately to get it to boot up even.

    Infact, i hooked it up to the computer and the USB connected sound comes, but the LED is still flashing and Device Manager is not reflecting the PIN and saying Device Not Connected.

    HELP Please!!!

    YES! Thats excatly how the blinking goes!
    Now that I have the apploader started, its stopped blinking, but it had all the previous apps unchecked..
    Should i go ahead and check all the apps again and try loading them?

    Couldn't hurt. May not fix everything either, but you're not going to damage the phone by running the AppLoader.

    Its not booting up yet.. there's nothing on the screen.. the only thing thats happened now is that the PIN is not showing and the blinking's stopped.

    Going ahead and finishing the Apploader by selecting all the unselected apps. Will update once it is complete.

    YAY!!! After WAITING FOR THE PHONE TO INITILIZE, the screen just booted up and it said RELOAD SOFTWARE 507 and then after a little while went into the Loading the Application Modules.. doing that at the moment.. keeping fingers crossed!!

    I've got to be BOLD in these situations!
    And wait patiently while it "Connects to the device"

    Or in this case, the calm before the second Bold... I wouldn't let something like this railroad me into a Storm!


    Sorry, too soon for jokes like this?


    Good luck, mithun.dsouza!

    Sounds about right. The hourglass is a good sign.
