Default Bricked.....ViperXL. Please help

I've been working on my phone tonight and I had ViperXL installed....
The Memory card wasn't being read and I erased that ROM and was going to go back to my "NANODROID".....to start over fresh.

Now my phone won't make it past the HTC Splash Screen and the screen goes black.....Currently I cant see my phone on my PC

Did i brick my phone? I've tried Volume Down + Power to get into bootloader. It says HTC for 3-4 Seconds than goes blank. The 3 Keys at the bottom just flash white when I'm holding down buttons

Please tell me there is something I can do. I feel sick to my stomach

push the power button until it stop flashing. when you didnt see it flashing again, push and hold the volume down and push the power button for only 1 or 2 secs without releasing the volume down button. you should be back to the bootloader screen, and from there you can go to recovery to reflash your ROM.

Make sure you flash the boot.img when you install new ROM if you in hboot 1.14 or higher. unless you are s-off. hope this help.

----nevermind looks like you solve it on the viperXL forums

Turn on, hold power 10-15 seconds, until screen goes black, let off, press n hold volume down, press power just 2-3 seconds, let off power button but continue holding vol. Down

How can I flash the OTA Version if I can't connect my phone to the PC?
I know OTA stands for "Over The Air" but I assume I still need to download it to my SD to flash it in recovery???

Edit:
I keep getting Process.Android.Media blah blah blah
I've installed HTC Sync and uninstalled.....Tried everything.......

I thought Rooting was going to make me happy lol! So Frustrating
