Last monday I accidentally tried what happens when trying to boot with IO_3V3 
shorted to GND (caused by a bad solder joint at the aux switch).

I could observe two possible behaviours before finding my mistake:
a) Qi booted, loaded the kernel and after some time I got a kernel panic (AUX-
LED flashing). Then I removed the battery. The screen backlight did not turn 

b) Qi boots, then nothing happens. Probably the PMU turned everything off.

I did not connect the serial console to see what happens, but my scope showed 
some activity on the serial lines.

I think they probably can until the device becomes too hot and turns off
