Update: still no go, I agree there is something missing here. When i flash ZVC all goes like it should but the phone still just flatout wont do anything unless on external power. I went ahead and did a battery pull but no change. It's like we're doing everything correctly here but it wont let us past fastboot or download mode. Either it's software or this thing may have fried. I'm going to bring it to a friend here in town and see what he can do, he's a guru in this department but I wanted to figure this out on my own. If we get this back up and running I will for sure update this thread, hopefully it can help some folks out there. Thanks again for the help Engine, I wont give up until i know exactly what happened and i'll pass it along.
