That said, I do sometimes use the term "Radio Brick" when a Rdio flash has gone wrong and it cannot be fixed without being sent to the Vendor. Can't think of a better term.

By that term, anything nonrecoverable can be considered a brick which is still more accurate than a device being bricked or software bricking a device yet it can still be turned on and/or charged.

Anyway, I say all that to say to the OP and all who think they are bricked, all is not lost if your device functions at all.
