Seems I'm not alone in the recent lockup issue. I'm here to report that my phone just locked up as well.
It was and has been working fine, but tonight I noticed that it stopped charging around 25%. I unplugged and plugged it back in, but nothing happened. I switched the cable connection from my front use to the one in the rear of my van and it charged for a solid 2 seconds, then the entire UI locked up. I couldn't get it to do anything with the standard power button, so I tried forcing a restart with Volume Down + Power. That did the trick as far as getting it to restart. But it wouldn't boot. I tried various methods including using the charger while pressing power, different button presses, etc. After about 15 minutes of this, the Qualcomm logo finally started appearing on start up, but it still wouldn't boot. Another 5 minutes later, I finally got it to boot, but the power had dropped to 6%. Since I knew I couldn't do a backup on 6%, I decided to test my theory that the charger insertion was the cause. I plugged it in and it instantly locked up. Since then, I have been unable to get the phone to take a charge, show the Qualcomm logo, or boot. I killed it completely as far as battery goes, and it doesn't give any indication of charging. All it will do is show the green image that says it requires a charge. I've read through some of the posts on here, but I wonder if there will be any solutions found. Since I'm on my tablet with no phone and working over the road, I might not be able to answer any questions very quickly .
