1) you are not bricked if you can get to download mode

2) find the post for going back to factory. You will have to use odin. There is also a post something like "restoring from the brink". I think that one is a sticky. [Edit] it is in the roll up sticky thread in the development section. "[How to] restore a semi-bricked epic from the brink". Took two minutes to find on my phone... [/edit]

3) search before posting (not trying to be an asshole)

Thank you everyone who was willing and helpful. I got it back up and right now on stock rom, EL30. Is there a rom out there that you guys prefer for both performance and candy?

You're about to get 400 people saying CM9. I prefer TW Roms like Legendary (no EL30 yet.)
Before blaming the dev consider that it might have been you. They probably know more and make fewer mistakes.

I like cm7 for 2.3 (stable, themes on the market, awesomeness) and cm9 is still in testing phase and has its fair share of issues. Try both and see.
