[Q] DHD failed during root
I have spent a week trying to resolve this now and have trawled the interweb to no avail!
Here is my sad story:-
I bought a DHD from a friend a week ago, which was working fine. The phone was an Orange contract phone but he had paid to have it unlocked somewhere. After messing about with the phone for an hour or two I started getting annoyed with the Orange bloatware and decided to have a go at getting rid of it and maybe upgrading Android in the process. After a look around the internet I decided to have a go with the AAHK. Lovely I thought, this should be a doddle. How wrong can a person be? It's a week later and I am still trying to get the phone to work!
So, running AAHK (thinking of renaming it to AAAARRRRGGGHHH!!!!), the program went through the motions of rooting the dhd. AAHK went through the goldcard creation and I now have that saved on my hard drive. But when it came to root, the program said I had to downgrade first. OK says I, go for it! The DHD flashed twice and then rebooted into the white HTC screen where it stayed for the next few hours while I worried if it had worked or not. Seems the worrying was worth it as it has not worked since.
ADB no longer recognises the DHD and the phone will not boot. I can however get into bootloader and pull information about the phone when it is in fastboot.
Here is the information from the phone :-
finished. total time: 0.004s
After more exploring on the interweb, I have tried the following
Flashing stock roms from sdcard and PC
Flashing custom roms from sdcard and PC
Upgrading the HBOOT
Read and tried copious amounts of things related to this problem.
I am pulling what little hair I have left out in sheer frustration at the moment but if someone can help me I would be one very happy bunny!!
Cheers in advance
