[Q] Looks like I hard bricked it...
My full apologies in advance if there has been a similar thread, I've honestly been looking for the past couple of hours. If there is one and I've just missed it, feel free to open-fire on me.
I have an AT&T Atrix running on 2.3.4 Gingerbread; rooted and unlocked bootloader with the Alien 4 ROM and the Alien 4 Theme. I'm really new to rooting and have only been rooted for about a week now. Today though, I was going to trade my Atrix for an HTC Inspire. I used to have one, switched to the Atrix, and I've come to the conclusion that I prefer the Inspire. While wiping my personal info off of my phone, I did something I clearly shouldn't have though, and everything went downhill from there. Not really thinking, I had already wiped my SD card (which had the Alien ROM), and I still needed to clear off the phone itself, so I figured it'd be okay to just go to the Settings and wipe my phone through the Privacy option. When it booted back up I saw that almost all apps (including necessary ones like Phone and Browser, among others) were gone. I didn't think it'd be a problem and I could just download them again through the Market, but my Settings app was also gone, so I couldn't configure a Wifi connection. I couldn't configure anything. My SIM card didn't work either, nor did the SIM of the person I had met to trade for an Inspire.
When I got home, I went through the different options in Android Recovery on my phone... Still nothing. So I fired up RSDLite on the Windows 7 comp in the computer room, downloaded the 1.5.2 Atrix SBF from here
to try and flash it back to the stock Atrix ROM, and clicked Start. My phone rebooted once or twice and it looked fine, but then RSD said that the flash had failed. Now whenever I try to turn my phone on, it stays at the big M logo with "Dual Core Technology" underneath (it doesn't even change to the pulsing M). I haven't been able to boot it up since... Sorry for the novel, but it'd be really greatly appreciated if someone could help me out here. Thanks for your time.
