This sounds quite a bit like an Inc I have lying on my shelf. It was a friend's and he gave it to me to see if I could fix it. As far as I can tell, the phone's emmc storage simply failed. These phones are aging and that happens sometimes. Anyway, I tried all the usual stuff, including running RUU's (flashing signed PB31IMG.zip's since the thing had never been rooted and was still s-on), and yeah, just boot looped.
I did get the phone working, but it was complicated and messy. Here's more or less what I did: I was able to successfully run the RUU that updates HBOOT to 1.02 (or 1.07, either one works), which allowed me to unlock the bootloader via HTCdev. (see one of the root / s-off guides if this doesn't make sense.) This made it possible to flash ClockworkMod recovery using fastboot, and boot into recovery. From there, I was able to get to a root shell through adb (plugged into my computer) and proceeded to downgrade and get s-off, following the guide. It now works, though it's running Froyo and there is hardly any space for apps due to the messed up storage. I've been wanting to try this hack
on it but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
