Default Help! Hard Brick?

Hello all,
I just flashed CloudyFa's cloudstock rom with the patched kernel and it booted up.
No radio.
So I go on forum and Micromod777 posted a baseband which should work on it and I do a full wipe, flash cloudy's rom, the kernel and then the baseband
Rebooted and black screen of death.
Just a vibration to confirm that it is booted up
Am I screwed?

Try plugging it into linux and seeing if it'll recognize it? If you don't have adb or downloader mode you're probably screwed...

Would virtual box work?

I don't see why not but if you don't even see the LG logo it's probably hard bricked.

It is.
Right now it is a brick. I am getting a replacement soon.
But do you know if there are any JTAG/ JIG methods available?

I haven't seen any you could try searching the forums for it, I got hard bricked by freegee a while back so I hope all goes well

These phones usually don't brick too easily. If you can get into download mode then you probably aren't bricked.

Maybe try this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471370

In the future don't mess with the baseband if you don't know what your doing.

Edit:
If you can't get download mode. There is still a chance but you must use linux.

This guide is for a D8XX so DO NOT USE ANY OF THE FILES LISTED THERE:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142

These should be the files for the VS980 12B, that I quickly just found in the same directory:
http://downloads.codefi.re/autoprime...12B_Partitions

In theory it should work, but I have not tested it. Use this at your own risk as a last resort!

Here's the post where I saved my vs980 from a brick. Couldn't get to system, recovery, or download. It's likely the same guide Ploxorz just linked.
