So would this rom work on a HTC Tornado/Faraday then? So anybody with a c600/qtek 83x0/imate sp5/m could flash it to their phone without ending up with a paper weight?

Technically yes but what would be the point? Don't forget this is a music phone etc and you could end up with the joystick not working correctly.

I can now get my C550 to show a white screen but that's it.

Didn't Fluffcat1 know of a way to repair the damaged bootloader in these situations? Remember him saying it's very specialist though so not even sure if it's something he can do so much as him knowing the method HTC would use...

Florin can fix it :)

If you can get a bootloader, you should be able to flash to recover...

Out of curiosity I thought I would contact HTC.

HTC state that only flashing roms as instructed by the network are covered. So unauthorised roms will definately void your warrany.

So the initial basic cost for repair without any "other" work is 31

Hi there, sorry Awarner to know that your unit got spoiled.

After spending hours since yesterday looking everywhere on the net for a rom, I eventually landed here, and finally accept there is no possible upgrade for my wife's C550!

I really wanted one, because her phone has the exact same problem the very first generation of SPVs had: phone often freezes while attempting to place a call(needs to take the battery off.) Given one colleague of mine has the exact same problem, I decided that it is due to the rom. Yet I was surprised not to find more complaints here, and in the bug list in regards of this issue. So I now wonder is this related to the rom or to the hardware? And if the rom (it is a Swiss!), would it be possible to find the Orange UK one (in case this one doesn't have this bug)?

Sorry though as it is a bit off-topic!

You'll need a direct JTAG flash to recover the bootloader. 4 problems with this...

1) You'll need to MAKE a JTAG adapter for your PC serial port (and get all the wires in the right places etc)
2) You need to know where the JTAG points are on your mainboard are and in what order to solder the wires from your adapter onto your mainboard
3) You need a version of JTAG which support the ARM926 core
4) You need a valid bootlaoder image

In essence this is pretty much beyond anybody save HTC and possibley florin_m.
