So... I was trying to revert my M7 to stock so I could send it in and get the camera fixed. At the time it was bricked, it was S-off.

I followed this guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...l#post44080767 and downloaded the hboot they linked. I didn't realize it, but the download completed with only 100k or so completed of the 2mb file. I wrote it in fastboot, rebooted and BAM. Black screen. When I plug in the USB, I get a sound that the device is recognized, but that's it. ****. What else can I do? Holding the power button doesn't even make the lights flash, because I have somehow written a corrupted 100k hboot to my phone. Is there any way to fix this? Should I just give it to the courier who was going to pick it up to fix my camera and tell him some story about how it suddenly bricked?

Can't get into bootloader-- the screen doesn't turn on. I just hear the USB sound when I plug it in/unplug it. Can't seem to turn it off. Computer recognizes it as QHSUSB_DLOAD

That is bad, have not seen a single person who was able to fix QHSUSB_DLOAD.
Sending it to HTC will be the only fix as far as I know.

See here for more QHSUSB_DLOAD information on mulitple devices:

Kind regards, Stefan.

They probably won't be able to tell if the phone was ever rooted. Dead motherboard.. Just hand it in.. and if under warranty they will replace it.

QHUSB_DLOAD issue sometime happen for no reason (dead motherboard) even if the user have not tampered with the phone. In this case you did but they will not know.

So better to tell something like: I let my phone charge, when I woke up in the morning it was dead instead of telling them you droped it on the floor (as it could void the warranty)
