As per the instructions, the ONLY way to fix a bricked (via charging circuit) Touchpad IS by using Ubuntu, which is an OS.

In that thread, I stated ALL the known approaches to getting the Touchpad back to life in case it is NOT the charging circuit... actually, there's one new one that someone used... plugging in their Touchpad, holding the central button down for hours (he used a grain of rice and a paper clip, I believe)
But aside tring the different chargers, the button combinations, the letting it be dead for a while before trying to charge it, the TPDebrick is the only way to revive any Touchpad that the charging circuit is corrupted.
I posted all the instructions in the best fashion that I could, as simple as I could, answered questions on how to do it, and what problems I had, and what others also went through (working with them) and I believe that it's covered as good as it gets.
Step one IS to have access to Ubuntu, either via your own machine by temporrarely replacing your drive with one that you can install it on, to install it on your present drive and dual boot your computer with it, or find someone that uses it on their machine and have them help you.
I had never used Ubuntu before and I didn't find it that hard after all. Getting it installed was the hardest part because the computer I tried installing it on was too old, and the other, I didn't want to dual boot. Once I realized that using a spare drive would be a very easy solution, I did that, and well... I recorded my steps on my thread.
