So you would have to boot into recovery and re-flash the rom, or restore from a nandroid backup.

If you can't get into recovery, can't get into the boot loader, etc then yes very good possibility you bricked it, though not sure which DesireZ hboot you grabbed as I flashed a DZ hboot on mine just fine. Just another example of double and triple checking information before you do anything with the phones.

That file name doesn't say what version it is, or where it came from. For example the only two hboot files I would flash would be either the G2 or DZ from this wiki : http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/index.php?title=HTC_Vision (and currently I'm using the DZ one on this G2).

Though by the name of it, it sounds like you were trying to put the phone back into the original stock/locked state and flashed whatever the original desire-z hboot would be onto your G2. The problem is the Desire-z had more regions/firmwares/carriers than the G2 and flashing one without verifying first would most likely brick your phone, which is what I think you have done.

Personally once I've rooted/unlocked a phone I don't even try to bother putting it back into stock state for this very reason.

PS: I unzipped it to show the version : hboot_7230_Vision_HEP_0.85.0005_101011.nb0

I am not sure what region HEP is, and I haven't seen an 0.85.0005 before.

So that confirms its a brick...any other options on how to get it back to life or ist that it ...because the battery indiator does comeon but its not turning on........
