when I release the power switch the green light turns on and stays on forever but nothing else happens..
I am charging it as I write this to see if the debricking process drained the battery...
do you have any other suggestions?
Usually when this happens either people flashed the wrong image to the wrong location, or used a corrupt image. Perhaps you should download the 3.0.2 images again. Flash both the kernel and main partition. Be sure to unzip the multi-part zip file for the main partition before flashing...
