Hi,

First post here and hoping somebody will be able to help me fix my Desire.

I have followed all the step-by-step instructions to try to get recovery mode working. I can boot into the screen and highlight the recovery option but i am unable to select it! The trackpad does nothing and pressing the power button simply causes the handset to vibrate and the O2 splashscreen to appear. The handset then stays frozen until i remove the battery.

Any help much appreciated!

Hi emm think i screwup a bit using this method..

I notice there was no exclamation mark after i select recovery. It went straight to the recovery. So i just apply the sdcard:update.zip and then reboot. Now im stuck at the screen of a box with an arrow going out since... :s

Help :s

This has just saved my life!!!! ;) thanks paul for this. thought i had bricked my phone but I used this fix to re mount all the partitions on my phone and then flashed cm 6.1 on again and my phone seems to have recovered from it's "spaz attack". Anyway on my legend before it got stuck on htc screen and unable to get into recovery to flash a rom. It was randomly flickering on the recovery menu. What was all that about? I'm glad it's sorted anyway, thanks again!!

Hi all,

i've got my desire rooted for some time now tough havent tried anything else since that... (got my desire 3-4 months ago)
now trying to get a custom firmware from modaco here, so this is where i continue ;D

so my question to the topic (it may sound silly):

The description says i have to copy update.zip to the root of my devide, however the download file doesnt have any update.zip in there.
only 3 Folders: META-INF, res, sbin...

then i thought it could be the recovery-clockwork-bravo.zip which i extracted that i'm supposed to rename?
COuldnt find anything about renaming on the description so i'm asking here ;) just to be sure...

Hey all

I was (still am really) loving clockworkmod, and was quietly confident that I knew what I was doing and regularly enjoyed trying new ROMS.

Getting rooted was a bit of a pain but well worth it.

Anyway, I am not sure what I've done but my phone is stuck in a boot-loop, white screen with green HTC, then vibrates and reboots to the same.

I wasn't worried at first, I thought I would just boot into recovery and restore a backup... but no such luck!

Selecting recovery from hboot gave me the red exclamation icon, and then selecting update.zip returned the following errors -

Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
E:failed to verify whole-file signature
E:signature verification failed
Installation aborted.

That led me here, but replacing the update.zip file on my SD has not helped, I just get the same signature error.

This is my phone info -
bravo pvt1 ship s-on
hboot-0.93.0001
microp-031d
radio-5.09.05.30_2
aug 10 2010,17:52:10

Is it s-on that is causing the error?

What can I do about it?

I was looking at gold card, but get CID failure, and cannot format the SD in the phone to get new CID as it won't boot!

None of the RUU files have found work either (customer ID error) - it is Orange branded handset.

I have spent all weekend trying to fix this, and I am sure there is a way.

Can someone please help, as I love this phone and miss it loads?

Cheers, Steve
