Hi there I am pretty new to this and afraid I got what you call a USB brick.
so here is what I did.
got a new desire with
O2 germany branded
Cause of the need to have VPN/IPSEC funtionallty I decided root, following your guide.
after this installed custom rom r3.1-bravo-desire-modacocustomrom-withadditions-a2sd+-signed.zip
did this twice once with ext2 then with ext3 partition. because I read about QuickOffice problems in here.
both did not work with quick office so decided to flash with r3.1-bravo-desire-modacocustomrom-withadditions-signed.zip to give it a try.
still in recovery i partitionen new with out ext partition. The phone boot up but had some SD Card errors (missng something but access to it).
So i partioned new with 512mb ext. Startet new and everithing was fine. But still no quick office. and I decided to flash r3.1-bravo-desire-modacocustomrom-withadditions-a2sd+-signed.zip again.
So this was last stable version
partioned with 512mb ext2 rest Fat32 on 4gb card
went to recovery to upgrade ext2 > ext3
there was a message on screen very short, but looked like something went wrong (couldn't read fast enough)
But then it upgraded correctly (seemed to)
then I booted to move new image to card
But now the phone come up with message that it cant find SD card and there is no connection to my phone provider. Wifi is still fine.
Back to bootloader I cant connect the device anymore, getting the screen with red triangle but adb shows "error: device not found" and window ask me for
Qualcomm drivers (for the first time)
hoping for, I just messed up my SD card, I formatted (FAT32 under Windwows Vista) the card i used as gold card (2gb), but its the same behavior.
clear storage in fastboot, clears data but still no better work
are there any advices? Did i brick it? and if so, what are my option?
some one got any experiences with guarantee services of O2 germany in that case?
hopefully looking for your advice
