    Mine too died yesterday, about 16 hours of use after the update, before that it worked like a charm, no problems whatsover, really frustrating. :(

    Likewise, I get some vibrate feedback if I hold the power button long enough but nothing happens, the light does not even indicate that it's charging and my computer does not recognize it being plugged in. Did anyone get a replay from HTC on twitter?

    thanks for replying

    let me explain something, when i did manual reset two weeks ago, i noticed that when i plugged the phone in, red led turned on moreover when i connected it with my computer on Usb cable, i could see my documents.

    However, things i said above doesnt work now.

    By the way i did all you mentioned , the phone didnt respond to me (guess because of the unresponsive buttons like power, volume etc)

    the situation is now like the below picture. So i wait for the moment the phone will turn off by itself . Unfortunately,I dont know what i will do

    Hold the Power button with the Volume Up button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If it isn't completely dead this should force shut down the device and reboot it. You can do this on a device that won't power up or even on a running device if it happens to freeze up and you can't exit an app. You may or may not get the vibration feedback.

    If you get the vibration feedback, try to power up normally. If it still only vibrates, then plug it into a charger for at least 30 mins. and then try to power up normally again.

    My unbranded, c620e 8x was updated to GDR2 on Friday in the US. Two days later, phone was "dead" -- no power -- in the middle of the day, thought there was 50% battery left. Initially charging did not resurrect, neither did power button. Soft reset: power + volume down and the phone did reboot while plugged in for a recharge. Crossing fingers I don't see that again, but back to life for now.

    Hope you get it working.

    I'm considering getting one, although it looks like a bad time to get one. :(

    My phone turned completely the power off. I tried to have hard reset. It was just vibrate. I noticed Its battery run out. When i plugged it in, red light didnt appear. Moreover, I got the same result when using usb cable to charge.

    I can say that my phone is dead...

    Hey guys, did you already contact the HTC support? I wonder what they would say about this.

    Since the update to GDR2, I can no longer use Internet Sharing. It allows me to turn it on and I can connect a guest i.e. it gets a valid DHCP address from the phone. However, there is no Internet access at all. I've tried changing the broadcast name / password and the guest connects successfully but no Internet. Internet on the phone is fine, happily surfing at H+. I've re-started the phone in vein hope but no joy. Is anyone else seeing this problem?

    Have you ensured your access point is up to date?
    07-22-2013 06:44 AM

    Yes, and to eliminate that as a potential problem, I changed the broadcast name and password, forcing the guest to connect using the new access point.

    I'd keep that power button down with tape, clear tape. Nothing else works to force it to restart. You tried every possible way. I'm scared to download when and if Tmobile pushes it out.

    So is everyone that has the lock playing music and have whatsapp? I have seen several mention both. If so maybe uninstall whatsapp before updating gdr2???

    Seems to be widespread enough:
    HTC 8Xs locking up after GDR2 update? Numerous reports say yes | Windows Phone Central

    Listening to music prior to bricking seems to be the common denominator.
    Just and update on my end too: Have had no joy since it turned off on Friday and now have to send it for repair tommorow. Pissed off something big.
