so i accidentaly "destroyed" a 7975 phone. accidentally in this case means that someone (not me) reloaded a catalyst while the phone got its firmware updated. things like that happen, obviously.
ever since, the phone is bricked. it just won't boot (not even the white splash screen with the java logo shows up). the phone, however, tries to download the firmware from the call manager tftp server. there are no tftp errors (on the call server, the 7975's display is black).
i googled up some instructions on how to do a factory reset (press and hold # and cycle power, when the top right LEDs start to blink press 1234567890*0#), to no avail. the screen stays black and the phone reboots from time to time (short white flicker), that's it.
any chance to unbrick the phone? i don't want to RMA it, this is a PITA and takes ages, at least over here.
