if my desire cid is also HTC__E11,should I edit the misc.img again? or I can flash it directly without edit

You shouldn't need to edit it if your CID is also HTC__E11.

It would be best to pull a misc.img if you're not bricked right now. It would also be best if a nandroid backup would pull misc.img during a normal backup.

To get your own misc.img out of a working device, use

cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/misc.img

And pull the misc.img off of your SD card next time you link up. :(

From where do i run the commandline? From the phone? Or from a windows computer?

Thanks...

From a terminal emulator on the phone, I used connectbot off the market.

Sorry guys, i didn't understand what to do with my desire (not bricked).

I got the CID from fastboot:

INFOCID is HTC__405

Then with Better Terminal with the command 'cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/misc.img' i got the image attached.

What have i got to do now to make my desire brick-proof?

Thanks

This is great news! Even though my phone isn't bricked, this issue kept me from flashing new roms. Now we can flash all we want again :(

From what I understand is you cannot make it brick proof, but if you do ever get bricked, you can just restore misc.img to your phone and it will be back up and running again?

Also now that the cause is known, is it possible to create a flash method that doesn't break it in the first place? Or will we just have to run the fix if we brick in the future?

Try doing a 'Save as' instead of just clicking the link.

To me it looks like bug in HTC recovery (kernel), that allows you to write beyong data partition (the next partition on NAND is misc). That explains a lot to me ;-)

with a few struggles, my desire is fixed :( :o

Just started using me Hero since yesterday and got pissed off the slowness of the Hero and the bad screen quality (compared with the desire)

I think you guys really deserve a donation of all the hard work :(

is there any particular reason why you are using 'cat source > destination' instead of 'cp source destination' ?
