Thanks, but for whatever reason it took holding down the power button for 40 minutes.

Thanks for you suggestions, as I mentioned above I got the phone to reboot into recovery after holding down power for an insanely long time. From there I was able to use adb to get everything sorted out.

So my problem is resolved, how do I close/delete this thread? Thanks for all your suggestions.

Cool, nice productive comment. I can assure you it was, watched two episodes of workaholics waiting for the damn thing.

I'm pretty sure you unknowingly kept leaving the power/volume buttons because of which the phone finally rebooted when you got it right
