[Q] HTC Universal stuck in Recovery-Mode (Not Serial / USB)

Hi folks,

I wanted to upgrade my HTC Universal (64) with WM5 to WM6.5 with this:
TOMAL V9 64MB WM 6.5 23004.exe

On the first try the tool recognized the current versions of the images and showed me which versions will be installed.

After starting the process my USB connection got lost (happens sometimes ) and the patching crashed.

I made a hard reset (the two Soft-Buttons + Stylus-Reset). It showed "Press 0 to restore factory default, Press X to exit", which is meant to install the system from the ROM, after the update from the new ROM. (But the ROM exchange seems to be interrupted and corrupted.)

The screen showed "Serial" and this serial number with no backlight, after reconnecting the USB it showed USB.

I made a second try with the Patch-Tool above - but now no versions were found and shown - neither as current nor as new. And the tool stuck.

The "Serial/USB /w serial number" issue is a known situation and could be fixed by using MTTY like in here:

But after the fix and new hard reset the screen is empty and the light off.

It cannot connect with MTTY anymore because it won't connect via USB (active sync processes are off) - the USB port isn't available anymore.

And: I get to the recovery screen ("Press 0 to restore factory default, Press X to exit") simply by pressing the two soft buttons - without pressing the Stylus-Reset-Hole.

I never had that and I don't know what to do - and be sure that I searched the net and, of course, this forum but I didn't find a solution (because I didn't find this exact problem).

Anybody any ideas or experiences with this situation?

(Don't tell me it's bricked. It's NOT bricked! It'll never be bricked! )
