Default [Q] Possibly Bricked my phone and need help.

So I'm on Houstonns 4.4 AOSP rom. I uninstalled busybox from within the app this morning and phone was functioning correctly all day. When connecting phone to computer my computer could see the phone in device manager but not actually do anything with it. I tried reinstalling the driver which did not fix the problem. I decided to reboot my phone. I powered it off, and it will not power back on now.

I've tried holding the power button for a very long time, power + vol+, power + vol-, power+ both vol and nothing seems to work. I've tried these options plugged into a walljack and into the USB port. Did I just officially brick my phone or does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks in advance.

Too add, I forgot that I uninstalled busybox until after my phone would not power on and I was trying to remember if anything had changed.

/e When phone is plugged into usb on computer and power button is held for about 20secs, the red light around the power button lights up for a moment and computer makes a sound like it's detected a new device being plugged in, then the red light around the button goes off and the computer plays the device disconnected sound.

Is there something I can buy to fix this, or somewhere I can ship it to or am I stuck with throwing it out and buying a new phone?

Then it is hard bricked and needs to be JTAG repaired. Mobiletechvideos.com is one place to check I think it is about $90.00 depending on shipping options you choose.

Right !! @adfurgerson , I read about a QPST tool somewhere in the forum . Can it be of some use to bring back the phone ? It's the Qualcomm's tool , right ?

I haven't heard of anyone getting it to work, seems like it would have been big news if they had.
