I have an old P1XL that I believe may be hard bricked. It bootloops endlessly, and i can hold power+down to get into the boot menu, but when selecting reboot recovery it just tries to do a system boot and bootloops. If I try to connect it to my PC in the boot menu, it isn't detected by ADB. I've tried different ports, different cables, and Windows makes the device notification when it's plugged in but it won't detect it in ADB.

Is fastboot mode the menu with start, bootloader, recovery etc? Yes, I can get there but selecting bootloader just reloads that menu and ADB is not detecting the device while in this mode.

    Dang. I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully someone comes along and will know more than me....
