I’m not the expert but it is my understanding there was possible an explosion or something similar that crippled it.
You are correct: The working hypothesis is that an explosion damaged the main battery, which failed into a shorted condition.
As we've seen with AO-7, it is possible that the battery could go from short to open in the future. Might as well be ready for the day that happens!
