this comment makes me thing you havent tried what i sugested. i know you have said you have flashed
recoveries multiple times,but what im suggesting is to boot
recovery directly into phone memory.
the command used to flash recovery is:
fastboot flash recovery imagename.img
the command to boot recovery is:
fastboot boot imagename.img
my aoplogies if you had realized this,but the commands are similiar,and in these forums this is commonly confused. from my perspective,you havent given much information,just general comments about spending "3 days working on it","trying everything under the sun",etc. i dont doubt one bit youve been working on it for 3 days,i can tell your fustrated. however,you havent given me anything to determine whether your a complete noob,who has just not entered commands correctly,or your an advanced user whose encountered an out of the ordinary(wich may or may not be fixable) prollem.
again,its hard for me to believe there is no solution for you,other than swapping out the phone. but if i am to help,were going to have to have to go all the details,look at your code boxes,etc. all kinds of stuff. ultimately its up to you. if you want help,we are here.
ethically tho,i cannot offer advice on how to purposely brick your device to hide whatever is goofed up.
the above command,should boot you directly into clockwork,no reboot and boot back to required. in the cmd window it should look something like this:
c:miniadb_m7>fastboot boot recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY [ 1.518s]
booting... OKAY [ 0.005s]
finished. total time: 1.523s
