The hardware on mine is all stock, and I haven't had time to start doing any "developer" stuff with it yet.

That looks like a problem, even if it doesn't completely explain why I see the reboot loop: If the power jack were bad, how many hours should it take for the  battery run to down and fail to power up the screen?  Mine could have been white-screen on the charger for a day or two.

Probably not, it's not meant to do that.
