    My Merc doesnt like me anymore. :(

    So, it was a normal day, I was playing and battery got low, I left it charging and my phone over heated and rebooted, it got stuck on the Huawei logo so I took the battery out and put it back it to charge it again, but it didnt turn on and since then it doesnt turn on. Any idea what happened? It seems like no power goes through it. I had Revokster ROM with ADW Launcher and PG's Kernel 1.9ghz max and 340mhz lowest.

    Re: My Merc doesnt like me anymore. :(

    Yeah you overheated your phone. Best thing to do was leave your phone's battery out for a while. By the way you don't need to go back to the old kernel. Use PGs kernel, just don't over clock it too 1.9. My advice would be to use the on demand governor and leave it at 1804-921.

    No it doesn't turn on at all. Not even when I put to charge or when I plug it in to the computer.

    Every phone reacts different to overclocking, my phone couldn't handle 1.9, or 1.8. It kept vibrating all the time. I have mine at 1.7 and it runs smoothly and fast without overheating.

    I don't even over clock at all.
    1.better battery.
    2.less chance of new shiny phone being fried.
    As a matter of fact, I don't even try out kernels unless the ROM comes with it. I'm on stock 1.5ghz for my S3

    I agree with Salas and Gio, I think lower end, slow phones should be the ones with the benefits of a custom kernel and overclocking, the merc with the 1.4mhz is good as is. And BMoney, yeah, I had warranty but I got fired from my job for a couple of weeks until they called me saying that they needed me again, so I couldnt pay my phone and thus ending with cricket. I'll probably go and buy the Ice at Radioshack.... if they still have it. I kinda liked this phone.

    I got another question for whoever knows, I took this phone apart and the new phone Im getting (Kyocera Rise w/Virgin) has a 3. something mp camera, if I switched out the cameras from the merc to the Rise will it work? or will I have to edit the software as well?

    Its very much possible! I remember people putting FRONT CAMERAS on a vibrant (which didn't have it) you will need to edit files and get a NON stock camera APK (download a camera from play). I have never tried it, but I know it's possible
