Surprised Please help! I may have soft bricked my Breakout.

PLEASE HELP!
I believe I have soft bricked my breakout!

I rooted my phone following the steps outlined in the post,
"[Recovery][Root]Pantech Breakout Root & CWM Recovery All in One"

The phone worked great for several days.
Then I was stupid and uninstalled SEVERAL of Pantech's bloat packages. When I uninstalled Nuance, my phone freaked.

So.. After battery pull...
-I booted into CWM
-I wiped Dalvik cache
-I wiped cache partition
-I wiped data/factory reset (mistake?)
-I wiped battery status (mitake?)
-I fixed permissions
-I reflashed BreakoutRoot.zip.
-I selected reboot system now in CWM

NOW...
My phone will boot and I see
-Pantech boot animation
-4G LTE boot animation
-It will then appear to look for the network as I see the lock screen.
=screen will then go blank (but you can see lcd backlight...so screen is still active)
=screen will then go dark completely like the power is off...but the light is lit on each of the 4 physical buttons.
=then those lights on the buttons go out and phone will play dead for a LONG TIME.
=if left alone, the phone will vibrate lightly as if having a mild haptic feedback seizure, and 4 keys will light.
=then phone will play dead again without any lights or android love of any kind.
*NOTE: The power button has no effect during any of this. In fact...nothing does...no button presses, no incatations, nor threats of holy water.

So...to fix this, I have tried:
-rewiping/reflashing adnauseum.
(have even tried the StockBreakoutPostRoot.zip)
But these are my only two zip files on the phone.

I have been hoping and praying for the Brokenout ROM to be reposted, but could never download it before it was pulled.

-I have even tried charging the battery to 100% and rewiping battery stats in case my prior battery wipe occurred while battery was low, thus tricking phone into thinking it's a dead battery. Even that didn't help.

-I've also tried all the steps above after having removed the battery and having taken out the SIM card in case I was wrong in having left it in all this time. Again, no love.

PLEASE...SOMEONE...ANYONE...
Help me!

This is my "active" Verizon Droid and I don't want to have to go back to my OG Droid and have to order a new SIM card by switching back if I don't have to. As a result I have been without my Breakout for 3 days as I have exhausted all options before sending up this "broken arrow".

I'm about to go to bed, hanging my head in defeat. I pray I will wake up to see that my stupidity has happened before and there is a simple solution at hand.

Thank you in advance to any and all who contribute towards resolving this issue.
