Hey everyone,

I have bumped into a spot of bother with my Legend this afternoon that I have been working on since early this afternoon with no success at fixing...

I was flashing a new ROM to the phone and part-way through the flashing I lost power to my PC (not sure if this is connected or not) and the flashing of the new ROM froze on the phone.

I then attempted to restart the flashing process (I was using the Modaco method of flashing using the Recovery menu and pushing the needed files to the phone) Whilst doing this however, I noticed that i was getting a device not found message on the command line whilst trying to run the .bat file to get things running.

I have since flashed a stock ROM and noticed that every time the phone boots it claims that the SD card has been removed and that I should plug in a new one.

I have tried a few times now to enter the recovery mode, reformatted both of my SD cards and even tried a different stock ROM, none of which have allowed me to access my SD card.

Any tips on this would be appreciated, here's hoping the phone isn't gubbed as I can't seem to get my grubby fingers on a UK stock Vodafone ROM, meaning that if I take it to them to fix they will probaby say something along the lines of "Ooo! You went flashy flashy with a ROM, no support for you!"

I will be intending to call HTC's tech support line tomorrow to see if they have any tips. (I might fail to mention that I was flashing different ROMS when the initial problem occurred, but surely installing new ones over the top of the failed one should solve the problem)

Anyways, as I said, any advice would be greatly appreciated and would help a great deal, I have a similar thread started on XDA developers, but thought I would start one here too, just in case someone here has experiences and tips that the folks over there don't.

Thanks,
Nimmo

I think I met the same SD Card problem like yours, but different is, I flashed the ROM 'r2-legend-modacocustomrom-withadditions-a2sd+-signed' and it was successful. After that, I went to set up the A2SD function and partition the SD Card. All the things seems very well, and I restart it. Then It claims 'SD Card removed, and insert a new one".

I did try many other SD Cards, but still same.

Does someone how to fix it? Re-flash the rom? but how can we flash the rom without SD Cards? :)

Sorry to hear you are having the same issue, it looks like you may need to try and return your phone, or wait a bit and see what happens with some fixes that people are working on for both the Desire and the Legend.

There is a brief discussion of what's happening over at XDA-Developers, which has a step that can at least get your SD card to be read by the phone, if not mountable by your PC here.

My phone was picked up by HTC this afternoon, hoping that they can fix it for me.

You don't need to go to recovery mode. Fastboot mode would be fine.
use the fastboot command to fix problem.
