Desire - bricked, can't connect through adb, no HBOOT , only fastboot

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've bricked my desire, so I do not adb connection, do not have HBOOT, unfortunately I do not have Gold card as well.

I can access my phone via fastboot.

Phone is branded - ORANGE, I have bricked i with wrong ROM.

I have tried to flash ROM through fastboot - no luck.

What can I see:

C:\Users\hristok>fastboot getvar all

INFOversion: 0.5

INFOversion-bootloader: 1.02.0001

INFOversion-baseband: 5.17.05.23

INFOimei: 356409049418364

INFOproduct: bravo

You cannot flash from fastboot unless your phone is S-OFF.

But as you can boot into the bootloader, you should also be able to boot into recovery:

1: power your phone down ( if needed remove the battery)

2: hold the "vol down" key while pressing the power button.

You should now come up in HBOOT with a menu, where you can select "Recovery"

3: Select "RECOVERY", and press the power button

The phone should now boot into recovery, the procedure from here depends on the recovery loaded on your phone;

but using the procedure, you used to flash the bad rom, do the following:

a: Clear cache, and do a "factory reset (clear everything)

b: Flash a good rom image, eg the stock Desire rom from this site

I cannot, I can see only HTC logo in the middle of the screen and 4 "!" marks on the corners of the screen. I can do fastboot through PC only, but holding Power and Vol.- doesn't help. For some reason I cannot attache pictures here ....

Have you tried flashing an official RUU?

I have. Phone is branded (Orange) I can't find Orange ROM, with other ROM's I am getting signature error.

Hmmm, from what I have read, your only option if you haven't got a goldcard is to use the official HTC upgrade to 2.3.....

It's the top one on the list.

Not sure if this is rootable yet, check below for details on this.... Hope this helps you!!

Signature error.

Do you know what HBOOT version you are running?

In fastboot, if you do <fastboot devices> does your phone show up?

At this point maybe try and S-OFF your Desire, my thinking is such that even if your system ATM is unbootable, this should put on a custom recovery. S-OFF the system and thereby allow you to flash a new HBOOT from AlphaRevs site. Also being S-OFF you should be able to flash any RUU....However you will lose S-OFF and root if you flash an official rom.....Any one out their know if this thinking is correct?

Also ensure your battery is at least 30% charged....

If you have access to your phone via fastboot you can

>> Fastboot flash HBOOT HBOOTNAME.img<<

However this is only possible IF your phone is S-OFF.

What mode is fastboot showing?

>>FASTBOOT USB<<?

This is because your phone is still S-ON.....

a bit Catch 22, I can't make it s-off through fastboot (from my comp) with any command/way that I know ....
