    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.
