Reflashing a Brick

Hi there,

I have a PRS-505 that crashed while flashing the new firmware using the download from sony. Several other units also crashed but were recoverable by attaching to another computer while they still displayed updating firmware and rerunning the update program on them. This got me thinking that it might still be possible to force a reflash of the firmware on the PRS. Currently the unit is totally nonresponsive. When I try to turn it on the light turns orange and doesn't change unless I turn it off with the reset button. The unit is not recognized by a computer. If I were to try flashing an older firmware with an SD card using Universal Flasher v2.0 how would I go about it? Is the attempt likely to cause any problems that would prevent returning the unit?
