[Q] HTC Bravo / Desire Hangs with Red Circle Screen (T-MOB101)
first things first: sorry for the same topic (loads here, but none helps / maybe i can't find the exact problem)
my phone hangs, recovery did not work, so i am on my own repair journey.
it's been two days but it is not a problem. too many guides (confused, read bortak's too, not sure which one works for my problem)
so maybe i need to settle it with a post.
first, the specs.
here is what i got via left button + power button on reboot.
bravo pvt3 ship s-off (done by me via revolutionary)
touch panel ...
aug 10 2010
the phone comes with 4gb microsd
what i am trying to achieve first
-a working htc desire with stock android
-CCID is T-MOB101 (via fastboot devices, adb devices not listing anything) (RUU_Bravo_Froyo_TMO_UK_22.214.171.124_R_Radio_32.49.0 0.32U_5.11.05.27_release_157560_signed)
what next (if i can get past the above)
- root the phone with unrevoked3
- install any custom rom
- remove sim card and memory card from phone (OK)
- restart phone via left + power button
- connect the phone via fastboot usb (OK)
- enter few commands (OK):
fastboot flash hboot bravo_alphaspl.img
fastboot erase cache
- run RUU of image above. (OK)
- the phone reboots; and there is a red circle screen (FAILED, stuck at there)
i- so what am i doing wrong?
ii- once, i manage to complete successful boot, but once i tried to root via unrevoked (is this necessary for custom roms?), it failed again at the second reboot, with the red circle screen again. and now i can't get past the RUU.
any ideas? what is actually the problem?
