2005 Chevy Equinox started lost power, stalled while driving

So my rig stalled while I was driving down the road. It would turn over, but wouldn't start. Then the battery went dead. I should mention that once I had it towed home, I tried to jump it because the battery went dead from the hazard lights. The idiot on the other end of the charger hooked it up backwards on his end. I do not know if this caused damage or not. Anyway, it would turn over - crank just fine, but wouldn't actually start. So I hooked up a diagnostic machine - which said to replaced the electric control module. I did this. Now, when I turn the key over there's lights, noise, everything indicative of a fully charged battery, but it wont even crank. No, i think its worth mentioning that a year ago I lost my remote and original keys. I replaced the key, but not the remote. Never any problems, which leads me to believe it might not be the security??? IDK. Anyway, I wanted to avoid a mechanic shop at all costs. I live in the boondocks and the local repair shop charges $90.00 - $120.00 per hour. Highway robbery. Any ideas?

I dont know what just happened to my comment but it disappeared on me. I was saying that i hooked it up to a diagnostic machine - hence the ECM replacement. What I didn't mention, is that when i had it towed home, and before hooking it up to the diagnostic machine, I tried to jump the battery. Turns out the idiot on the other side of the cables had them backwards - and i dont know what kind of damage this may have caused. It was after this that i hooked the diagnostic machine up to it; wherein the code read i needed to replace the ECM.

Now, when i put the key in and turn it, i have lights, sounds, everything but it wont turn over. it at least used to crank (before replacing ECM), not it doesn't even do that.

hooking up the jumper cables wrong can do damage to almost anything with all the electronics on cars now days. It will blow diodes that are only supposed to go one way. burn up circuit boards. all sorts of things. If you scanned it and the scanner gave you a code to replace the ecm, now that you have replaced it what does it say? did you have it flashed to your vehicle? (programmed through the DLC)
