So Debrick got you to the point that your TP is semi-usable. So now is when TouchPad Toolbox should get you to a good place. If you use the complete data reset, that removes WebOS and dedicates all available memory to Android. Here is a link to the TPTB thread and a thread that goes in to great detail on how to use it.No, I did need it. Power+Home+ anything would do nothing. The debrick totally got the device to a semi-functional state. Before, either I had the battery symbol, or nothing. Now, I get to the boot menu. I can get into clockwork mod, but when I run a full wipe/factory reset, it sits at the second step (after successfully wiping cache). TP toolbox... I'll have to look into that. Not sure I've used that before. Thanks.
Currently, when trying to boot into cyanogen, it's just a boot loop back to the boot menu.
