Unhappy I have literally murdered my phone. PLEASE HELP!

I have literally no clue what I have done to my phone. All I know is what I've done is bad and that I have voided all warranty. I did this knowingly, but this still really sucks.

I have CWM installed but CAN'T boot to it. Apparently I have like super-bricked my phone and when I try to boot into CWM it boots out and boots into the boot logo where it stays.

Someone please help me. The adb and fastboot commands do not detect my device (Windows 8.1) and they also don't work on my Windows 7 netbook.

I have no clue what to do. The RUU also doesn't work.

I have a Droid DNA.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2561044 this may help you. From what I read you have to put it on an ad card and run load it onto your phone. I'm fairly new to all this myself. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. I would use this but I get a "<waiting for device>" on my computer and the windows 7 doesn't pick it up either so I can't flash. I am seriously so screwed - I'm sick to my stomach at how screwed I am.

edit: anyone...please..I am literally crying. I cannot fix my phone. I cannot afford a new one.

Can you get into hboot/fastboot?
then in fastboot mode, enter :
Code:
Select Code
fastboot erase cache
If that goes through, try entering Recovery again.

If your computer isn't seeing the device, make sure you have fastboot and adb installed and if it's a driver issue, try installing this if you can without a booting device
It requires some interaction with the phone, but maybe it will see it in hboot or install enough that it can detect it.: LINK

Don't panic man, your phone is going to be fine. I think we've all been there before. As long as you can get to the bootloader it's not bricked. Just do what santod said, also double check to make sure that you have the drivers installed properly, you can get adb and fastboot working on 8.1 if you install the correct drivers: http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...ms-on-windows/ also make sure you are using fastboot commands in the bootloader and not adb commands. That may sound ridiculous, but those are the type things that are easy to forget when you're stressed because your phone won't boot.

Do you even have a rom on your phone or are you stuck in a bootloop?
