I recently started messing about my DS5 and apparently bricked it. I can't remember exactly what was I doing when this happened but the current situation is the following: the device can be powered normally (just pressing the power button) but I will get stuck at the dell logo, even before it animates; it will NOT go into fastboot (black screen if powered on while pressing the camera button) and it will NOT go into recovery mode either (pressing the volume knobs while powering it on). It does however go into diagnostic mode (plugging it in while pressing the volume up button) and the QDL tool will recognize it.
I have tried two different QDL tools; one (from streakflash) ends the process in success and the other (from the repairtool) times out while waiting for the ADB.
QDLTool 126.96.36.199 -from streakflash- (incomplete; last) output:

I've tried everything that has been published on the forums, including, but not limited to:
The ADB is installed (used the Dell) but the device manager never even shows an Android phone at any point, immediately after the reboot it will simply be picked up as a "Qualcomm HS-USB Diagnostics 9002" and hence (I guess) the failure to run adb fastboot.
I am almost certain that the adb is correctly installed but I can't be 100% sure. What else can I do?
