Question [Q] a500 bricked or toasted?

Ok think my A500 is toast? Maybe someone can help me? Please!! boots to skrilak v8 and stays there.
Had omnirom kitkat running and all of a sudden stopped working. It will not boot or recover at all. I have skrilax v8 and twrp 2.1.3 Fails to mount /data /system /sdcard etc When booting to secondary image it fails (secondary image apk kernel error.I know i had root and su installed, stupid me didnt create a backup.
I can read the files in adb no problem, Has adb and fastboot mode on pc. Gets stuck on stage 2 and bct dump fails in a500apx program. ETC i have tried all for the last week and still no avail. I tried timmydeans too
I have my cpuid and skd #'s my problem is adb reports device as $ not the actual cpuid device? maybe i am doing something wrong?
Is there a way to partition this? is there a way to check partitions? i am pretty computer savy just cant figure out for the life of me why it wont start up.

I think you'd better try to check this: and/or this: to unbrick your tablet and begin your unlocking process again.
