[Q] Major issues with my Desire S
first of all I would like to point out that although I Googled well this topic, I'm finding mixed replies which confused me rather than helped me - and seeing that this device has screwed itself up pretty badly, I do not wish to experiment haphazardly.
So, for the problem:
Around 2 weeks ago, I had S-OFFed and rooted my Desire S by using Revolution. This worked well. I kept my original unbranded firmware, and had no intention of changing nor flashing any different firmware - all I wanted was root access for some apps. No, I haven't taken any backups.
No problems so far, however since my phone was over loaded with apps, I found it easier yesterday to simply do a factory reset (from the menu) and start from scratch than uninstalling each and every app one by one. Nothing illegal
a simple factory reset which anyone can do.
I thought it went well, however I started having frequent crashes and infinite reboots. The only way out of the infinite reboot was to remove the battery and restart the phone.
Today however, after the Nth time that this happened, my phone stayed loading on the white HTC screen forever. Eventually, seeing tthat his was getting hopeless I opened the bootloader and I got the following error messages:
Revolutionary CWM v220.127.116.11
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
I tried wiping and formatting the /cache partition from recovery mode. Wiping succeeded however errors remained. Formatting failed.
As it is the phone is just stuck at loading. What do you suggest is the best solution?

Is it possible to go back to stock BL and go back to S-ON?
Oh, and the battery is currently around ~18% and I cannot find a way of recharging it (and I don't know anyone else with a Desire S nor do I have a wall charger).
What do you think the best option is? I'm currently extremely annoyed at this phone as my only offence was of performing a factory reset from the main menu! I bought it new from eBay last May!
Thank you all and sorry for writing so long!
