Default Need help with HTC sensation, i think he's bricked?

K got this HTC from a friend of me, was working before, had it rooted and fixed with custom rom
It was S-on on v1.27

k now gonna try to explain what's going wrong:

When i shut down the phone, put battery out, back in, connect to usb, i get the phone recognized by ADB (my HTC phone)
when i type adb reboot-bootloader, device responds and boots into fastboot mode
when i use vul up i get Fastboot usb on screen

from this point i can't get any further, device doesnt respond from any button action except for vol up.
Device is not recongized in windows now (windows 8 64bit) got the famous error 43

So in ADB everything is fine, but in fastboot nothing is working/responding

when i pull battery out, then put it back in, i can succesfully boot with volup en power, then i get everything running (custom rom from before) but it says safe mode

Any ideas what i can do to get this thing back on it's feet?

regards,

Robin

In bootloader(fastboot mode) no buttons will works except vol up,down and power..
If you want to flash a custom rom then
First goto bootloader
Now enter to recovery by using vol down and then power button to ok.
Place a Rom.zip in sdcard format cache/dalvik , all partition except sd and then flash rom..

problem was that none of the button's where responsive, i found the cause of this, volume buttons are damaged (the strip inside was broken)
So now i have a new problem much wurse i think

only power button works, so i did a complete reinstall with ruu, booted up fine, but always in safe mode for some strange reason,
Now after shutdown, i can't get the phone on anymore, only goes to Hboot, and there is nothing responsive, non eof the buttons work, can't use vol buttons because they are broken.

Adb is not responding either, only getting HTC Android USB device in my device list....

I think the phone is ready for trash? :S

in bootloader adb doesn't work only fastboot
so when you are in hboot screen try this command
fastboot reboot (in the hboot screen should say fastboot usb)

can't get into adb anymore so i think the phone is dead unless we repair the volume buttons right?

since you are dealing with a hardware problem then yes

but try this
boot normally(even on safe mode)
connect it to pc and type
adb reboot bootloader
it will take you directly into fastboot mode
then type fastboot reboot
see how it goes and check volume button from there(to confirm the hardware issue)

otherwise repeat the procedure but instead of fastboot reboot run the ruu.exe again
