Exclamation [Q] Stuck in RUU [HELP PLEASE!]

Dear developers,

I got a problem, there were a lot of things I could help my self with but now i'm stuck.

My HTC Desire Z won't boot... I can't flash anything to my phone because the bootloader is locked and I can't find a official RUU that would help me out.

I tried to boot in fastboot and I get the HTC logo with in every corner an exclamation, when I disconnect the phone I get the following screen:

VISION PVT SHIP S-ON
HBOOT-0.85.0013
MICROP-0425
RADIO-26.10.51.26
eMMC-boot
Apr 11 2011,23:36:27

RUU

- no reboot possible
- screen says RUU (when plugged in, RUU USB)
- can't find device with adb devices
- can find device with fastboot devices
- not possible to make goldcard, because no adb connection
- running new RUU didn't work either (because I can't find a RUU for 2.42.405.5)

I have no solution, can someone please help me?

------- Update

I have a gold card using another phone

If I now just try to flash something on my phone I get a signature error

What happened around the time your phone stopped booting? Did you go to HTC website to get the latest ruu from them? Also boot back to fastboot and try
fastboot check_emmc_mid

On the HTCDev.com I can vind a RUU for software version: 2.42.405.2 but I have 2.42.405.5
Now I tried the command: fastboot oem check_emmc_mid and get the output:

...

OKAY [ 0.009s]

I don't understand anything about it, I hope you do

And I tried a the command: fastboot oem boot and than I get the output:

Just wanted to se which emmc you had as one is prone to failure, you do have a good one though!
Now its all about finding the right bit to flaash for you which may be a bit hard as unrooted and bootloader locked phones only allow new os versions to be flashed. I won't be near a computer for a while but when I get back ill try to dig up a file for you

yeah seems like you have the latest version right now other than the latest g2 ruu but you dont have super cid so you wont be able to flash that either
do you remember what happened when your phone stopped working? may help figure this out.
also just for fun what output do you get when you type this in fastboot
fastboot flash system system.img
dont worry that there is no image, im more concerned if your current bootloader will allow you to do this, i doubt it but why not
also check this
fastboot oem partition_test all

Like evry other flash I try:

(bootloader) signature checking...
FAILED (remote: 12 signature verify fail)

and the output of the partiton test:

(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!

I think the phone does not flash because the bootloader is locked? (S-ON)


I do not know how the device can not work anymore, I've bought via ebay ...'m a bit ripped off because it said that the phone worked

yeah a bit ****ty of whomever sold it to you, id try for a refund!
i take it you tried the basic stuff like booting to recovery and doing a factory reset?

this is real annoying too being without knowing the cause and having such limited access its hard to fix this thing, one of those deals where if i had it in front of me i think i could figure it out! but really you are going to need an updated ruu signed by htc to get this thing up and running if all the simple fixes havent worked... i guess you can see if debugging will work in recovery mode? if so then should still be fixable...

I tried a lot, can't boot to recovery because there is no.
it automaticly boots into RUU mode and if i try to boot it in to bootloader, system or recovery it stuck at the HTC logo.

How can I debugg the device? I know how to debug C# applications with Dot Net but a simple android phone is a lot harder :P

I could send my phone to your house if u think that would help?
