Default Unable to load ROM/ mount sd card - phone not detecting in hboot/Suspect USB brick

Hello all,
I have been trying to flash a new ROM but I am not able to mount my sd card.


From what i have read and learnt so far, it seems to be a usb brick.

I tried to perform the fastboot fix method but nothing happened.I am not sure what i am doing wrong.



Another issue is that my device is not recognizing in hboot mode (atleast thats what i think). Do i need to install any drivers?
However, I have the modified android drivers installed.
I am using windows 8.


Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong here?
I last used these tools like 3-4 years ago and I am not sure what has changed since then.

You should use 4ext recovery its better for making partitions.

Thanks for the reply. The thing is I cant switch on my phone as there is no ROM installed. I need access to my sd card to do anything.

When i boot to fatboot (volume down + power) and connect to my pc (running windows 8), it says device not rcognized.

Is there anyway i can fix my sd card issue using the SD card reader?

If u can transfer files between ur SD card, download the 4ext recovery pb99img.zip file and copy it to the root of the SD card and when you get into a bootloader it should ask you to flash just press volume up and reboot then see if u can get into your recovery.

I can transfer files into my SD card using a card reader.
But will this give me access to sd card via recovery?
I am not sure if bootloader will ask me to flash since the SD card doesnt seem to be accessible via my android device.

Maybe you should try with machine with win 7 or xp.
Fastboot commander is nice tool for flashing recoveries or othe stuff on Htc Desire.
Flash 4ext and run usb brick after.

Sorry run usb unbrick
