Default [Q] [OSX] total brick of P990

I've done something really stupid today. After flashing my Galaxy S several times already I thought I'd give my friends Optimus 2x running Cyanogenmod 7 an update to nightly 10.1. Obviously I tried flashing a 10.2 build first that I found somewhere, but installed the wrong gapps to go with it (and even after it continued to boot into CM7). So after phone boot I had FC's every two seconds and couldn't reboot into recovery with clockworkmod.

I can't reboot into download / fastboot mode on the Optimus 2x. power + volume-down goes into "SW update" which is totally useless, and all others boot into CM7. I've installed the ADT and tried lots of things through adb, but nothing wanted to go into recovery mode (like adb reboot recovery), so in the end I did a 'su wipe system' after remounting the file system into rw mode.

Now the phone is totally dead. I think I've really wiped everything as I can't even shell into the phone saying no shell executable is available.

Any way I can fix it? fastboot just hangs saying 'waiting for device' (was doing it all the time); heimdall doesn't recognise the phone ('ERROR: Failed to detect compatible download-mode device.', also always), doing both as root.

I just want to factory-reset the whole thing and flash an image. Any way I can do this from OSX?
Help appreciated!

This device is unbrickable, so don't worry.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with OSX...

But using the AIO-tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=34809475 can let you do anything... So, of no Mac answers tick in, go windows...

Maybe, Progmaq's tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1975274 is even easier as it also restores some CM10 nightly.
