Bricked Pinebook?

Long press turns it off, long press turns it back on, but no OS access. I don't have anything I can't re-image here so I don't really care how I get back to a working unit, but I can't figure how to do a master reset and get back to square one. Any suggestions?

That's really weird. The pinebook will always boot from the microSD and then the eMMC... it's hard-wired into the CPU, you can't break that bit?? So if you've managed to get it to switch off via long press, it should boot from the microSD when you power it back up. IRC might be you best bet to work though this, but in the mean time, what happens when you hard power it off (so green power light) and plug in the charger cable? Does the unit power up, and show the battery charger logo, and then power off?
