Dear all

As I was flashing the ICS Firmware file I changed my mind and pulled the sd-card out and instead of pushing the Vol Down to cancel I pushed the Vol up.

The phone then started to update without the SD-Card in, I suppose it was erasing everything and now the phone is dead.

No charging light, Nothing. It is not detected by the PC what ever I do.

Is there any possible way to re-flash the bootloader again?

Please Help, my phone is out of warranty.

Any help is appreciated.

Best Regards

Phone does not turn on, There is no way to go into Bootloader to flash anything.

What you did was a very foolish thing, never flash firmware if you are unsure or even if you are, never ever pull sd card or battery out once it has started.

The only thing I can think of is try flashing an RUU. if not, u need to take it to a service center

I know it is a foolish thing to do and no it is not detected by ADB or the USB port.

I hope there is a way to fix this other than changing the main board.

Well, since adb won't see it, the ruu wont either. Congrats, its a brick Just call HTC and tell them you were installing an ota update when it died... You might be lucky and have it repaired

Don't know what possessed you to pull out the sd card when you could have just pressed down button. If it's completely bricked, chances are HTC will replace since they can't access anything to check your history.

They will repair it for sure as it is not warranty covered and I will pay for it , But I wonder how much it will cost and which part they will change.

The phone is out of warranty. So they will likely change the main board if they can't flash a new boot loader.
