So, maybe my only option is to wait ICS RUU... my God!

Anyway, thanks very much, especially to unknownforce!
Can you use HTC Unlock again? I have never used it, does it work from inside the bootloader?

If so, re-unlock, then try to flash the RUU or factory reset again.

It's bricked if the device no longer boots at all (No power) and when you put the battery back in and plug it into the wall, it does NOT indicate that it's charging. (Only the dim light shows up)

Try different mirrors, as long as it's the exe for it, you should be fine.

thanks! i tried last night and tried the battery pull method. I got the dim red light and when I plugged my phone in i got no response. i put the battery in while plugged into my linux box and i got the bright light as if it were charging. maybe i pulled batter too soon. i was able to boot into fast boot installed the the PG86IMG i had which allowd me to get back up and running. I'll have to try again when I get off work tonight.

Yeah, Bright light means not bricked. Give it another shot.

for anyone that knows, what ever happened to the origional first couple of steps where you have to put the "misc_version" to /data/local? There was another file also, but I cant remember what it's called. Do we still need to push the "misc_version" file?

Nope, this is not necessary anymore. The downgrade tool flashes the misc partition and the hboot now, so temproot is not even required at all. just brick it and downgrade.
