Default Hard Bricked Galaxy Tab!!

I rooted my Tab with Clock Mod and I'm still on contract I installed the wrong ROM (Stupid Mistake) I clicked reboot now nothing happens?

I do get a driver connection when I press the power button for 10 seconds on The PC (not my pc A friends) The tab is my only device to the Internet besides I'm writing this from his PC.Of course the screens blank.

Please Help, I'm on contract with a carrier paying for A not working device I'm hoping to get it working and restoring but to A stock/un rooted versrion.

Thanks :.(

Can you boot it into bootloader or download mode? If so, it can be saved with Odin or Kies.

No, But when I plug it in to the computer it gets a drvier called Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 (COM6)
I managed to get that drvier working by letting the battery go flat.

So far Ive tried Odin and ADB.
But i think there should still be hope since its connecting the driver.

Its not complety dead(if i can get the firmware restored but to stock)

Hey Spudster, just a heads up, I moved this to the All Things Root section for you.

Thanks for understanding

Ok Thanks :.)

I don't think there's anything else that anyone can do. I may need to wait till May and send it back to Samsung.
