Default Hard Bricked LG L7 (swap)

I installed the swap nonsense and that was the last of it.
I have battery (checked it using my friends phone, also L7).
But phone reacts to NOTHING!
No usb-comp connection holding different buttons. No combo before inserting battery.
Its DEAD.
Greed Kills.

I bought the phone abroad and so warranty does not cover, and well the repair price according to the LG guy is about $200 which is about the price of the phone.

Any ideas?

Doesn't mean you have to...

You have all the files necessary and a tutorial I linked to in the second post.

Yes, because that is so hard. "Always, a problem arose. Already, and the phone will work isn't clear."

This is true. You have all files. L7's HEX file. You can.

You have to do it with the battery removed.

You need Windows anyway for the tool.

Thanks a lot guys for helping me.

I am getting the hex file right now. The QDL drivers; they are not installing. Its probably cause i m running Win8 64 bit.
Are there QDL drivers for windows 8 64 bit?
None of my frnds are running XP either.
