    Welcome to the forum.

    Which kernel were you running when you performed the wipe. There are a few ics kernels which contain a brick bug when wiping with cwm recovery.

    I'll move this over to the all things root sub forum where most of the rooters hang out:)

    If it was a kernel with the brick bug that has caused the problem I don't think even jtag fixes it. I think the only solution is to have your motherboard replaced. I hope I'm wrong here though.
