New to Windows Phone 8 (been flashing custom ROMs on Android phones for a few years). Got an unlocked (previous Rogers) Ativ S SGH-T899M from Canada and have been using it on T-Mobile for the past few months. I tried to update it to GDR3 via the "Preview for Developers" and the phone is bricked. It gave me a BSOD error during the update and now it won't turn on. I tried every button combination possible to reset it to no avail.

When I connect it to my PC, it comes up as a Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM3).

I've searched everywhere and it seems that there are no T899M ROMs to flash? Any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated it. I love my phone and don't want to get rid of it!

No ROMS are available for it. I've been meaning to ask who has been leaking the ROMs for the 3g/non-lte model, but I have no clue. This is one of the things I've covered in the FAQ.
