I got the phone from a friend and it has already been flashed (hope it's the right word)
and it has some version of android running on it. I downloaded HSPL4 and ran it as administrator. Got some errors about missing .dll's
but I resolved it by installing Microsoft Mobile Device Center as activesync is not available on Windows7. So, I start the boot mode
by holding volume down and power buttons but I don't get a three coloured screen, instead I get a b/w menu which looks like this:

1. Boot WPH
2. Boot AD SD
3. Boot AD NAND
4. USB MassStg
5. USB Flasher
6. USB TTZ
7. AD Hardreset
8. AD Recovery
Then I connect the USB cable to computer and start HSPL4 as admin again and i get an error message saying:
Error code: 00000002
Description: USB Connect failed!
I tried selecting options 4, 5 and 6 (after which computer recognizes the phone as a USB device) and starting HSPL4 but
i got the same error. Tried googleing for answers but without much success as everyone gets the three coloured screen
in boot mode except me. The device says the current ROM is CyanogenMod-7-11072011-NIGHTLY-Desire[TyphooN_v3.7.5-MAGLDR].
Hope someone knows a way past this. Thanks!
