Default 7100 Spinning Hourglass

I was resetting my 7100 by putting in the password wrong 10 times. On the 10th I got the normal warning that it was going to wipe the device. The screen went white and the hourglass showed up. After an hour the hourglass was still there. I removed the battery and replaced it. When the device comes on it goes to the hourglass and just spins. I tried to connect it to the desktop manager but it doesn't connect. I even tried javaloader -usb wipe but it couldn't connect to the device.

Anyone have any other idea before I send it back to T-Mobile?

Thanks

OK problem fixed. I finally just let the device sit for awhile and the hourglass finally stopped and I got a 504 error and a no sign over a desktop icon. Which I assumed was the message for no operating system. I was then able to connect to desktop manager and reload the OS.

perhaps the hourglass was spinning because it was Bill Gate's birthday
