Guys, please - that's not the point!

That's exactly the site I got my other RUU from. The first one that I tried was from HTC website and had this filename: "RUU_EVITA_UL_JB_45_S_Cingular_US_3.18.502.6_Radio _0.24p.32.09.06_10.130.32.34_release_signed_With_P artial.exe". It says "EVITA" as plainly as it could. I am aware of that.

The thing is: both didn't work. OK, I'm going to try another one just for the sake of completeness, but with two previous attempts the story was the same:
1) Turn on the phone holding volume-
2) Select FASTBOOT
3) Connect to USB
4) Launch RUU
5) Click through dialogs, agree to everything
6) Message appears "Verifying information..."
7) New dialog pops up allowing me to select the 3.18.502.6 update
8) I click Next -> Next -> ...
9) The dialog opens with a message that the phone is being "prepared" for update and it will be rebooted to bootloader
10) Phone reboots and goes to the 'quietly brilliant' screen (or more recently - just black screen)
11) Computer shows message "Waiting for bootloader"
12) Computer times out -> the only available option is Exit.

End of story for me. Is there a way to somehow fix that? I'm OK with doing stuff from cmd - it's just that none of the tips I found in this forum actually worked. For example, adb always ends up with error 'device not found' and fastboot only works while the phone is in the fastboot menu, but does not let me flash anything.

Thanks.

Ok, but the only RUU you specifically mentioned up until this point was one that isn't for this device (3.07), which is why I posted that. Maybe you got it from androidruu, but you definitely didn't get it from the Evita section. There's no need to get narky at me for trying to make sure you don't brick your phone after you've already run at least one RUU that isn't for your device.

Perhaps you need to try the 2.20 at&t RUU.

You could try putting it into RUU mode to try and force it to flash. I had to do that to mine about 5 hours ago. Just go to fastboot, type "fastboot OEM rebootRUU" and try running the RUU from there.

My apologies for the confusion - the RUU I was mentioning as 3.07 is actually 3.07.2012 - this way it's being referred to on the HTC website, but the software version in it is 3.18. I'm not allowed to post links yet, so it's kind of hard to explain...

I have tried the 'rebootRUU' trick - it didn't do anything. After some experiments I found that letter sizes do matter - when I entered "fastboot oem rebootRUU" the phone actually rebooted. However, it went straight into the 'quietly brilliant' screen and I wasn't even able to go past the "Verifying information" pop-up on the computer - it ended up in 'usb connection timed out' error.

Anyway, I will try 2.20 - if that one doesn't work, I guess I'll have to send it for service.

Thank you all for trying to help.

I think the op might be talking about this RUU which i can confirm does indeed work for the One X. If not, try this RUU! You said it was 3.07.2012 but this is 3.07.2013 not sure if just a typo but here's hoping!

As for the phone, if the RUU doesn't work then it might be a hardware issue not letting the phone boot. It's happened to me on the EVO 4G and no amount of software flashing would fix that.

Also, this probably won't make a difference, but make sure to run the RUU as administrator

3.07.2013 (its not 2012) is neither the RUU number nor the software version, its the date the RUU was posted to the HTC website (March 7, 2013).

The software/RUU number is 3.18.502.6

The software/RUU number is always in the file name.
