Stuck in a USB Brick circle!

Recommended Posts

Im trying to fix what i believe is a USB brick on my desire. Ive tried 5 different cables on 4 different computers and all i get in device manager is 'unknown device'.

Ive found a guide for the usb brick fix (http://www.roms-au.c...xing-usb-brick/) but it requires a step where i root the phone using rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin, it looks like it works, then the terminal app locks up when i try to do the next step, i cant gain temproot. Im guessing thats because you cant root 2.2.2 - 3 branded?

Anyone know how i can gain root access without using USB? i have an SD card that im able to put files on through an adapter then i can place this back into my phone.

Is it possible to downgrade without root & usb?

the phone is 3 branded (uk)

software number 2.29.771.3



im still just as stuck, but now im on android 2.3.3 (software number 3.14.405.1).

All im trying to do is sim unlock this dam phone! and install a custom rom. Ive been doing this for 3 days now :(

My CID is H3G__001 if that helps?

So i cant connect via USB at all, not even in fastboot. I need to gain root to be able to do the USB fix, but i cant get root on this rom. I dont know if its even possible to downgrade without a USB cable... Im also unable to get my CID number to make a goldcard, i think, CID checker shows H3G__001 but the goldcard guide i was following showed the CID as a long set of numbers.

Can anyone think of a way out of this circle?!
