    Have you tried to Take out and put back in the battery. Then, hold Vol + and Vol - , now plug in USB, you will end up at a text screen. Then press volume up again.

    How did you end up bricking the device

    OK I'm a little confused as to what you did. Can you give me a step by step so I know exactly what happened. And also what rom too.

    sure. i just downloaded some rom (have no idea which one it was...sorry) to turn my home keys into LED notifications and i rebooted my phone to complete the installation and this time it kinda worked cause a droid with a yellow triangle appeared so i rebooted it. my mistake was when i tried to install the rom again because the installation aborted the first time. so it turned itself off but not back on.

    Were you rooted with a custom CWM recovery installed? It sounds like you tried flashing something with stock recovery and your phone didn't like it. Also if the rom was not for your model phone. You may be sitting on a fancy expensive paper weight.

    You may need to get a USB jig to force it into download mode, even then I can't say if it will help with the computer not recognizing the phone. You do have drivers installed right?

    USB drivers for your phone. You will need to find them and download them. Then install them on your computer. That could be the reason the phone is not connecting.
