Default 02 WRX Wagon + Cobb AP. Uninstall = Bricked ECU. worst day ever.

COBB AP:
Performed uninstall this morning.
Car not starting anymore.


Thread posted to COBB and called, haven't been contacted yet. Here's what I posted there ( to save time ) ->

Flashed back to stock today, got the green check mark after the uninstall, now car will crank but will not turn-over or go back into test mode; AP can't communicate with ECU at all.
All test-mode connectors connected, passenger and under dash, Blue INIT included.
Went through all the troubleshooting steps in the manual.
Reset the ECU by draining battery for an hour, still no luck.
Have been searching online for 2 hours, now think I may need to send my ECU to COBB
Called Cobb, haven't heard back yet.
Any other ideas to try before I have my car towed to the mechanic to remove ECU?

Worst. Day. Ever.

Don't need to have mechanic remove ecu, just pull the carpet on passenger floor board and its under the metal plate. Save you some cash.
