(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 4187mV

Do you know what might be wrong ?
Okay, after trying for a few hours I was finally able to run the RUU... some how :S. I really don't know how.

However, the update process went smooth, no issues, BUT ! :s the bootloop is still there.

Do you think this might be a hardware fault? Do you think this phone doesn't have its actual stuff i.e. the ROM. the RADIO and HBOOT? Do you think I should check other info on the phone tag or something to guess the correct firmware?

This RUU seemed like an all Desire one. No ?

Dead end ... :S

So the RUU successfully flashed but it still won't even boot? Strange

Try revolutionary again, did you install the relevant hboot drivers? Find the revolutionary.io documentation page, instructions should be on there

Yes, I know its very strange :S

I did try that, however, it wasn't that simple. The drivers present on the revolutionary website didn't detect my device in HBOOT, it was only detecting the device in FASTBOOT, and in FASTBOOT revolutionary still didn't detect the device.

Then I had to download the altered driver and then install it manually. Now My device is detected in both; Fastboot and HBOOT mode. But revolutionary still can't detect it, in neither of the modes.

Any Idea why ? And what I may have done wrong there.

Tried that, but the problem I am probably facing is that to gain s-off, revolutionary needs to phone to be in USB debugging mode i.e. adb mode with the OS running ofcourse. While I can't get past HBOOT / FASTBOOT. So revolutionary ain't working for me.

I don't know what to do now.

Any suggestions?

ah...

Only thing I can think of is keep trying the RUU until it boots properly.

Print out any error messages if it has any.
