Now I want to bring the device back to 100% stock to either start fresh or make an exchange with T-Mobile.
Every way to restore to stock required fastboot & adb which obviously I cannot do since I cannot connect to PC. Please share any insights or at the very least steer me in the direction of the light. Thanks
First, if you can boot into android, download a zip of your stock from your phone and flash it through recovery. If you can't do that, see if you have another micro usb cable, try connecting it to your phone and pc and see if that works. If not, cycle through your boot modes connected to pc (bootlader, android -if possible-, and recovery). Do you hear any sounds from your pc that indicate something is connected to it? Especially important for recovery to stock. If you hear a sound when you boot into recovery, you can flash the stock RUU or zip to get your phone back to stock. Next, disconnect phone from your pc, uninstall htc sync and all drivers for the phone. Reconnect the phone to your pc after that, and if it boots to android, it should reinstall sync and drivers automatically. Aside from this, the only other thing I can think of would be an exchange due to faulty usb. Hope this helps. I've included a couple of links to your stock RUU and zip (I'm assuming your T-mobile US). I hope this helps. -Mike
T-Mobile stock nandroid zip
(Note: You need CWM for this)
T-Mobile stock RUU
(It's an .exe you run with the phone connected to pc in recovery. Scroll to the bottom for the download. You need stock recovery for this)
I hope this helps.
One more thing: You got lucky no one flamed you for posting a question in the general thread. Next time you should post a question in the Q&A thread. Not everyone is as nice as me around here.
