Again, if your problem is "Loki aboot version does not match device" then your device is not bricked probably
I don't know where you guys get your information from but stop saying phones are not possible to hard brick and spread this word around. It is very easy to hardbrick any phone with root.
I will go just in a little bit of detail to show you.
How does your computer boot?
The hardware you have (CPU, GPU, Memory etc) are searched for (physical addresses) by the motherboard by the BIOS. Delete or erase the BIOS and I bet you any sum that your computer will stop doing anything (starts and sits idle just fans spinning).
With this analogy the BIOS of any mobile device is the bootloader. In the bootloader, that is located on the eMMC (embedded Multi Media Controller; like an SSD but with the controller of memory in the silicon die). eMMC is partitioned like a hard disk.
Your phone has an integrated Primary Loader in the CPU (this is what Qcom 9008 is). By shorting pins you change the boot order. If you short correct pins you can send data into memory (RAM) from the CPU and then write it on the eMMC (if you have the correct communication). This is where the HEX programmer comes in. This is how Qualcomm tools know how to communicate with the SOC.
The 2nd loader is on the eMMC. By default all CPU's boot from eMMC. SBL1->aboot and so on is the bootchain. Where hardware is initialized and recognized. Destroy and of those partitions and you will have a hardbrick (either fallback to 9008 automatically because eMMC is empty or not recognized at all).
Well I ended up giving you kind of a full information. Just stop trowing around this thing "phones can't be hardbricked". Hardbrick describes the state where a phone can't enter the last emergency mode provided by the manufacture (Emergency in this case). And generally buttons don't work, screen isn't either and so on.
