    • I guess you can’t power the phone off or take the battery out? If you can’t get back to recovery then you’ll need to ‘repair’ the phone by updating the software in PC Companion. If you can get to recovery wipe cache and reboot if still no luck then reset to factory defaults/full wipe and if still no luck try a different firmware.

      I don’t know why people are still using xRecovery, when you get your phone back into gear install CWM Recovery instead (if you really want you can install xRecovery too as CWM supports dual recovery). Good luck and hope you can get it back without minimal hassle.
