Default Bricked Bold - Please Help

Please Login to Remove!

Hi folks, any help would be appreciated!

History - I have a prerelease bold that had prerelease firmware on it. It worked fine but with minor issues related to that firmware. After wanting to upgrade it to a newer version I had deleted the firmware and this is where the fun began.

Now
unconnected the bold won't start

once connected to usb - red light goes on black screen remains - red light goes off after 10 seconds and then a grey screen with a battery appears with the a thunderbold through it

What I have tried

I have tried running apploader with nojvm and with the oldest prerelease firmware I have (which is older then the original one, I tried the original one as well)

after connecting to bold and asking me what firmware/software I would like to install I click next where it loads the firmware the first step receives a check

it then tries to initialize the device takes about 2 minutes then reports errors in connecting to the device.


Any suggestions?? if it will help I can take pictures of each screen

After wiping it using JL_Cmder

and runnig apploader

it completes the first step: Load JVM and system software

When it goes to "wait for device to initialize" , the light turns red for 2 minutes then goes off and a white screen with a battery/thunderbolt comes on.... after a couple minutes it says "Unable to reconnect to the device during a multi-stage load operation."
