The only mention of this RUU in regards to s-off is to avoid it if you're s-on, because clearly it bricks s-on devices.

What do you mean you did "something" with it? Did you even check your CID after supposedly resetting it? Your "if that's even possible" statement doesn't really instill much confidence that you really knew what you were doing at the time.

Well I'm pretty sure it was reset but since you said the only way to fix it was through jtag repair, I figured it wasn't possible and what I read wasn't true (since you seem to be an active member and know what you're talking about)

I wouldn't suggest you even attempt doing a jtag repair unless you're already well versed in the process. In the US it should only cost you about $50 through xda user zarboz.

So you didn't actually check the CID after the attempt to reset it?

I remember the CID said to be what it was supposed to be. I wouldn't have attempted the RUU if I wasn't for sure I was doing it exactly like the post said. I wish I could find the post, it's been a while since I've attempted this. The only reason I didn't really work on it after I bricked it was I got caught up in doing other things and I forgot about it.

Ok, well if your CID did indeed revert to the original CID there's no logical reason why the RUU would brick your phone. You could have just gotten very unlucky, it's very rare but an RUU can brick a device for seemingly no reason. Contact zarboz and enquire about him doing a jtag for you, he's a good guy. If you can find that post/thread though it'd be great, I'm very curious to see what it says.

Alright thanks! I'm actually debating on if I should go through with this. $50 is a great price but it also has a crack in the screen and I was intending on eventually selling it.

I'm not sure if after getting it repaired via jtag and replacing the screen that it'll even be worth my time in the long run ha

But I'll keep this guy in mind, let's say my Galaxy S4 gets in a similar situation (gosh I hope not, I'll take more precautions from here on out) but incase it does can he repair all phone brands that need jtag-repaired?

You'd have to ask him which models he supports, I'm not sure.

I'd suggest contacting HTC as well just in case. I had a QHSUSB_DLOAD brick & I called them and they fixed it for me. I know another user here who had similar results with a bricked device. I called and told them it cut off and wouldn't cut back on. They completely reset the phone, but all I had to pay for was shipping.
