Yeap has happened many times. That's why I haven't bought a lockpick.

Disconnect the battery, remove the lockpick, and pull the IOD fuse and re-seat it. Then hope the Mygig is alive.

Re: mygig dead!!
good stuff! incase anyone does this with the REN and not the RER make sure you pull the fuse before you remove the negative battery cable!!!

Re: mygig dead!!
it seems to be working fine now...... i have a theory about the problem.... i think you have to press stop on the dvd screen if you switch sources (hdd, radio, ect) otherwise the mygig will be running multiple "programs" because of the hack the dvd will always be playin in the background and the mygig can not handle all the activity and shuts down...kinda like a sh*tty computer.....but that is just my theory, havent proved it yet but since i've been doin this method it has not died on me yet
