Gizmoe, thought I'd give you the latest update: I was able to finally get the PC (Win8) to recognize the phone by installing HTC Sync 3.3.63, installing Win7 64bit drivers.
Then I downloaded RUU_Ace_Sense30_S_Cingular_US_3.20.502.63_Radio_12 .69c.60.29U_26.09.13.17_M_release_335423_signed from HTC site. This is an exec file.
Got phone into USB debugging mode, fastboot off , charge only, and ran the above RUU. Seemed to be working as it asked if I wanted to update etc. and warned about losing data. Said ok and RUU exec then popped up status window saying "Waiting for bootloader......................"
This ran for a few minutes and then Windows popped up message saying last USB device connected failed. Then RUU exec finally popped up and said Connection Error 171. No choice but to exit program. This has happened twice. Very annoying. Took forever to get PC to recognize phone and now I'm still stuck with a brick thanks to ATT.
Any thoughts ?
