Sadly, my HTC First somehow managed to quietly brick itself while I was carrying it around inside my pocket. It was rooted about three months ago, no other modifications. I have not installed any applications recently. I had a battery low warning (14%) maybe a couple hours before that, but hadn't had a chance to charge it.

I literally pulled it out of my pocket and there was no response of any kind. I plugged it into my PC to charge, but the charge indicator did not light up. Windows showed that it didn't find a driver for QHSUSB_DLOAD.

My warranty is void so... I suppose since the brick didn't happen while flashing anything (I repeat, I did not flash anything), I should have a better chance of recovery over USB, correct? I see instructions for some popular phones, but the procedure requires a dedicated package it seems. I would assume one does not exist for our phones. What do I do now?

I suppose I would feel better had I broken the phone myself, but having it just randomly brick on me like that is just crushing.

WOW THAT SCARED ME SO MUCH. HOOLEEEY SH*****T!

I plugged the phone into an old charger and it began to charge. I was able to turn it on. Does this mean that it's impossible to charge a phone from PC's USB when the battery is drained all the way?

Whew.

Yes that is true.
The reason for that is because to use a phone through USB you must have an alternating current. Aka electrons move back and forth. To and FROM the phone. The charger is a direct current. It simply pushes the battery to recharge.

htc first bricked QHSUSB DLOAD on device manager on pc.
hey geys i have the same issue. my phone was operating really slow and then rebooted by itself up to the facebook F LOGO, upon which it was stuck for over 15 minutes, i held down the power button until the device powered down, but it didnt restart as it was supposed to,
so i used the usb cable connected to a wall charger and its not charging nor booting up, there is no LED indicator that its charging either, the charger works.
