Unhappy [Q] Bricked friend's Droid 3 (XT860)

Hey fellas, i'm desperate cos i've bricked my friend's droid 3 (XT860) while trying to flash cyanogen mod 10.1 to it.
I do not remember which version it was but i'm almost sure it was a 5.2.420 - Android 2.3.5.

I rooted the phone and flashed clockworkmod recovery using Rom Manager, wiped both data and cache, installed cyanogenmod 10.1 and gapps, and wiped data and cache again. After rebooting, the phone was stucked on the 'Dual Core' logo. I can go into recovery but i no longer have clockworkmod installed nor can i try to reinstall the ROM again.

After trying some stock flashing and getting a boot failure error message, im now with this AP Fastboot Flash Mode (S) (Boot Failure) Screen.

Could anyone please help me? It's my friend phone!

I'm sorry about my english.

Thank you for your time!

You can restore/unbrick it to the stock ROM, which will allow you to start over from a clean slate. I suggest using Safestrap instead of CWM/Rom Manager.

EDIT: Refer to post #4 below.

I wouldn't use that on a XT860

Unhelpful response is unhelpful. Though you have some good info in your signature:

Looks like you want to flash to the first ROM here: http://sbf.droid-developers.org/phone.php?device=21
Flashing instruction here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...d.rvj235ud4nkd
