Unhappy Flashed PE with EE- Major OOps!

I was too much in a hurry and made the ultimate mistake. R.I.P my double screened friend. I know others in this forum have made the same mistake, and it looks as if the only fix is the serial - surgery method- I'm not technically comfortable with that, sooooos I'll wait until another viable method is found. If not, I'd still like to thank all of you who really made me enjoy my PE with your posts. Even with all the other tablets/ereaders out there, I believe this is the Reese's Cup to beat them all.

Don't count it out just yet. Try the DINGO restore with no checks. That should do it for you.

Thanks to both- so there might still be hope. Are you referring to the 'Golden' DINGO restore?

It is definitely not possible to flash with dingo once you've flashed with the EE firmware on the PE. Believe me, toyz and I probably tried it like a hundred times.

Making the cable is really the only difficult part. Opening the case is super easy if you have a #0 screwdriver. And as long as you don't try to remove the motherboard, it is highly unlikely you will break anything.

The only fix that will be ever be available for this break will be via serial, because your buttons will no longer work to get you into the maintenance kernel. Sorry. In the future, if we are able to port clockwork mod, if you have installed clockwork mod FIRST, you probably can fix the problem without going to serial. But you will not otherwise be able to.

What's your general location? Maybe someone will be kind enough to loan you their cable.

North GA- Thank you for the loan offer- I've looked at the diagrams for the wiring, and I think I can do it with a little precaution and a beer. I appreciate your input.
