Well, it's easiest to see when plugged in to the computer, and that
More worryingly, charger_type in that dir says:
none mode 500mA
To me, that means it can tell that 500mA is available, but that it
can't/won't give it to the battery. Forcing fast charge mode just
changes the 500mA to 1A, but doesn't change anything else.
It just seems like something has been zapped in the FreeRunner (since it
used to work fine), and the bits that would actually pull current across
the usb port aren't working.
Just for kicks I tried opening it up but didn't see any obvious melted
parts... hey, you never know, it might be something easily visible!
Any other ideas? If it is a hardware fault then I'm not sure who would
even be able/willing to fix it.
