I apologies if this has been posted before, not sure how to search for it so please if you know the post please post the link.

I was trying to downgrade my handheld OS. During the final initialization it got locked into a continuous loop and would not initialize. Is there anyway to correct this error, or is the phone a brick now? Any help would be appreciated on this.

That hourglass can spin for up to 20 minutes during an OS installation. Give it some more time. If it still doesn't come up then try this:
