Bold Nuked or Hardware Problem?

Hi

My friend's Bold suddenly stop working after he shut it down from flight. When it is restarted, the LED is blinking for 30 secs then after that the screen only shows Big battery logo and completely shut down (no LED activity).

 

I tried to revive it using Loader but it is always failed in the middle of the process during "Wait for device initialization" (It detected the device as USB PIN : UNKNOWN). I tried to pulled out SIM card and Media card as well using Loader /NOJVM but still failed.

 

Last move, I tried to wipe it using JL_Commander, but it won't detected the device.

 

Is there anybody can help me? Is the BB nuked or completely failed due to hardware issue?

It was running OS 245 and TIM issued unlocked

If the screen was simply showing a battery with "no battery" symbol, is needed charging.
