Default My phone wont turn on. =(

My thunderbolt wont turn on after attempting to update the radio. Any help would be appreciated.

It kept dropping data and certain programs like web browsers would not open. So I went to install a newer radio (2.11.605.9). I downloaded the radio, checked the md5's, renamed it to PG05IMG.zip, and dropped it onto my sd card. From the phone, I rebooted it into the bootloader, but instead the HTC logo came up and wouldn't move on so I pulled the battery. Now it wont do anything. No response from the power button, chargers, volume rocker, anything. Pulling the sdcard didnt help either.

Is there anything I can do to fix it? I have no use for a paperweight.

It was rooted and running some variant of Liquidsmooth. I don't know which one, I'll look for it right now.

Edit: it was the 11/07/12 version here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1948065

I'm getting the orange light when I plug it in now.
