My 3 months old Retina MacBook Pro 15 2017 is telling me to replace the battery
The system report metrics seem normal
I've tried all four USB-C ports, done an SMC and NVRAM reset, still not charging.
With only 46 cycles and 6400 out of 6830 mAh, so 93.7% of the original capacity, I really doubt the battery is dead. It was lasting about 7 hours of normal usage before this occurred.
The power button does not work to power on the mbp, I have to close and open the lid, but the power button does work to shutdown the mac... It's also not playing the charging sound when I'm plugging the adapter. I'm successfully able to NVRAM reset, since after releasing the keys, the mbp boots, but SMC reset seems to do nothing, and I'm not sure it's resetting anything, and since there is no more LED on the USB-C charger, I can't know for sure...
What can I do?
I know it's still under warranty, but I'm far from any Apple store or Apple certified shops, maybe there is a procedure to SMC reset my Mac other than pressing ^ Control⇧ Shift⌥ Option ⦿ Power?
Would opening the mac and unplugging (not removing) the battery for a while reset the SMC? Would it void the warranty?
Could I use rEFIt to flash the SMC firmware? I'm not able to find the right firmware to flash for a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2017) -MacBookPro14,3 on the official page...
