Unable to recover 625 from failed WP10 update

Im getting the reboot loop problem, the phone (when charging) boots up, shows nokia logo, shows windows logo, shows the gears spinning, after around ~30 seconds it turns off, and starts again. If i unplug the charger after the gears finish spinning it turns off and doesnt turn back on without me pressing the buttons..

What ive tried:

Soft reboot (Hold Power + Vol Down)
Hard reset (Nokia logo goes blinking, exclamation mark (!) doesnt show up.)
Waiting for battery to go dry and trying to attach charger
Used LSRT (Press device not found thingy, it searches for my device, but doesnt find anything, once it did, the Nokia logo on the phone became larger font and the program said are you sure etc, then it crashed showing error: 0x80131500, then the whole software crashed) (Also tried using different ports on my PC)

Im all out of ideas.

I'm having this exact same issue on my 1520. Tried the same steps with same result. Is there anyway to fix this??

Have you tried the Windows Phone Recovery Tool?
