Hi,
I got my PinePhone a few weeks ago. It worked great for a few hours. I tried changing the OS and all of a sudden, it won't start. I tried doing some of things people mentioned in the forum but it didn't work for me. Now it's just sitting on my desk. 

If you want to try to fix and play with it, let me know. I can ship it to you, for only shipping. PM/DM me. Thanks/MS

Connect to it via serial console. Any USB to 3.3V TTL converter that uses RS-232 for serial communication transmission and adapts to a 3.5mm audio jack will do. From there you should be able to see what the issue is. For an idea on how to connect your computer to a serial console see me post about my experience connecting with a serial console: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=9516.

Post back and let us know what you find out after attempting to boot while connected to the serial console.

Also, remember that the PinePhone will boot both from eMMC and SD. Don't give up so easily, I am sure you can revive your PinePhone.

Cheers!
