Hello,

After the OTA update, my Vivid doesn't want to turn on at all. When I connect it to USB I get QHSUSB_DLOAD and nothing happens.

Any ideas ? Thank you !

Your phone is done. There is no way to fix the problem beside getting a new phone.

I wouldn't say that. Since the chipset could be written, it is not completely dead. Sensation users have already found a fix for this, but it is a different chipset.

We don't have the files needed to recover. Either you need to get it replaced under warranty or insurance.

Which OTA update? As far as I know AT&T and Telstra are the only two carriers to have released their ICS update OTA. If you're actually on Voda in Romania I don't know what would have possessed you to try installing one of those two OTAs.

Is your battery charged at all? Did you try pulling your battery, leaving it out for a while and then booting it?

Also, was it an actual OTA update? Or?

The phone is from AT&T. It didn't have any sim card in it when I got the update.

to be honest, ur best bet is to call htc service and warranty and see if you can ship it to them

i've sent them many phones for repairs under warranty, and all but 1 didn't get fixed for free
