Have you considered getting/testing a touchstone? May solve all your charging issues.

Seems to me like you should send it in for repair.
Might have a faulty device since you're having all these troubles.

Not to worry at all. I have previously sent in a Pre - to get replaced for an issue with the headphone jack. I forgot to remove the kernel and preware and to be honest, they didn't care. They sent me a new phone. No questions asked.

HP has been unusually friendly with the WebOS modding community. They know it happens and have turned a blind eye to it. It's not Apple. Another reason why I like WebOS.

The truth is that most HP employees right now care very little if you have a kernel or Preware on your phone. My guess is they're freaking out about if they will have a job in the next little while. I highly doubt that they have anyone running forensic software trying to discover evidence of kernel mods.

Don't sweat it about modding the kernel. Just tell them what's wrong. Tell them to fix or replace it. They won't give you a hassle, but if they give you any hassle, come back to us in the community and we'll give them what for.

The WebOS community is a pretty tight knit family. We got your back.

Its HP, not the police. Just send it back. Worst case scenario they send it back to you in the same condition it is now. If it happens to be a hardware issue that will require a new unit, then at least now they may have one to replace yours with.

And I have never had a kernel do permanent damage to Webos. If it's a problem with the kernel it CAN be fixed. If it's a hardware problem, then the kernel doesn't matter.

So what's happening? Are you in webOS, boot loader, or not powering on at all? Is your volume key stuck? More details, please.
