It's been plugged in for about 100 hours at this point, and went for a
stretch of about 50 hours without me touching it. No change in

USB is not providing sufficient power for the phone to boot. Maybe
it's not detecting the presence of USB power, or not negotiating for
500mA current rather than the default 100mA, or something like that,
but if leaving it plugged in overnight solved the problem, I wouldn't
have posted in the first place; if USB power were sufficient for it to
boot, I wouldn't have posted.
