Post [Q] How to unbrick U8800 pro without usb?

Hi, I'm new in this forum so don't be harsh on me I've bricked my u8800 pro.
I've downloaded firmware from: huaweidevice[dot]com/worldwide/downloadCenter.do?method=toDownloadFile&flay=softw are&softid=NDY1NTY=
I've installed first UPDATE.APP file in my formated sd card and went to settings and chose to update from sd card. After some time installation failed and phone freezed so i removed battery, but when i tried to turn on the phone nothing happened, it doesn't turn in recovery mode either. Usb isn't working.
Is there any chance i can unbrick my phone? How?
Thanks for help.

Hi, download official 2.2/2.3 for U8800Pro and copy it on the MicroSD card via usb card reader.

Turn off the phone , insert MicroSD card and hold vol up, vol down and power buttons at the same time.
Phone will turn on and start installing official 2.2/2.3

When install was comlete, you are done.

Thanks for reply. I have done as you said ( used: U8800P_Android_2.3_V100R001C00B521_Oversea_Normal_ 05010TXB ) but nothing happened - installation haven't started, no pink screen. As I stated before phone does not turn on to recovery and it doesn't turn on with or without an sd card, it doesn't show any kind of life. Maybe you have another piece of advice.

Pull the battery out and connect phone to the charger/PC via USB and hold vol +, vol - and power at the same time. Maybe it helps.

Thanks for reply, but as i stated before usb isn't working, because there's a crack in mainboard near the usb socket. I'll try to solder the mainboard as soon as i'll find necessary screwdriver for unscrewing plastic parts. Maybe you have other suggestion that doesn't involve usb.
