Soft bricked my device

I flashed the boot.img from advanced stock kernel: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191264

And after doing 'fastboot reboot' my phone never came back.

Luckily I'm still able to get into fastboot and flash mode

Any idea what I did wrong?

I'm in the middle of downloading an official FTF so I can recover my device.

Help, I can't seem to get my device to stay in flash mode for longer than 10 seconds. Can someone help?

I can stay in fastboot mode. I flashed the boot sector with the wrong boot.img I think. Can someone help me try to recover from this?

I just flashed the FTF and am back in business. Holy cow that sucked.

Does anyone know exactly which recovery I can flash onto this device? I'd really like to get root without having to go through all this!
