What exactly does your phone do when you've successfully bricked it? I decided to give 4.5 another go and it got stuck on the hourglass then the installer gave me a warning saying that installing of back-up data failed and I should retry. Then for the next 20 or so minutes it kept trying to boot up but would go black once it hit the splash screen and give me the red light like I just put the battery in. Desktop Manager also kept saying it failed to connect with my phone.

I figured I had nothing to lose at this point so I just started pulling the battery at random intervals during it's futile boot-up and kept pulling the usb cord in/out and voila, it booted. Currently I'm manually restoring my back-up data, hopefully all is good in da hood.

Thanks but that has no relevance to my question. Did you even read my post?

it won't even turn on, just a few red blinks from the led.

Red blinking means corrupted/missing boot loader.
Try to remove your battery and then connect it with usb, and flash it again :)
