Default 8310 bricked, can't reload OS

Please Login to Remove!

Hoping you all can give me some tips or ideas on this crappy Wednesday morning....

I turned my AT&T 8310 on (1 year old) this morning, checked email, set it down on the table, took dog for walk, got back 10 minutes later and picked up an infinitely rebooting phone...Never gets past the hour glass.

Tried a battery pull, no change.
Followed instructions on how to attempt to reload the OS by using the App Loader with the battery pulled, connect to USB, put battery back in, start install process. This starts fine, but after the "Loading System Software" is the "Waiting for device initialization" and it reboots the phone and boom, right back to looping.

Of course the local stores advice is to upgrade the phone for $200 and a new contract.

Any advice here folks?
