If it's flashing, it's not bricked.

Should be solid. Pop the battery back in and attempt to power it on.

Thumbs up thanks

thank you unknown and closeone i finally balls up and did it and and it was pretty easy. the process look daunting but the live cd toolkit made it easy jus plug the phone on and its like ABC.

the only problem i had was timing the update to brick it lol took me 15 attempts.

do it ppl its real easy

Keep trying! It's rewarding when it's done.

If you want to do it by pulling the battery, simply don't use the charger, and pull the battery at the right time. (It's apparently easier said than done).

Again, just keep on trying with it! Try varying your timing a bit and letting it sit at the "Press Vol + to update" screen before starting the update. Also, you might also try pulling the battery instead.

(Note: There isn't (shouldn't be) any functional difference between pulling the battery or pulling the cable. You're just trying to cut power to the phone at the appropriate time to brick it, but there have been a few reported successes by users who have done a battery pull.)
