Default Help! My Storm is a Brick after loading the latest 141 firmware from the sticky above

Please Login to Remove!

Last night I went through the upgrade process to install the new firmware to my 9500. I have done this before on 3 occasions with updates so I haven't made any schoolboy errors, just followed the simple instructions.
After the upgrade my storm worked, i checked that it displayed the latest version info on the device and it did, I was struggling to notice any differences with the upgrade so thought I would do a battery pull, I did this and thats the last time I saw my storm alive, it is trying to boot but no joy, the red light comes on every 10 secs then goes off, no screen activity at all.

How can I roll back? I am going through the process with the earlier version of the firmware but my computer cannot detect the handset to load the software so I have no idea what to do....

any help is welcomed.
