So I was restoring to a RUU a while ago in an attempt to get S-Off. Well it didn't work out and it failed half-way during RUUing.

When I connect the computer, Windows detects it as "QHSUSB_DLOAD". Parallels detects it as a "Qualcomm Composite" device and I can tell Ubuntu and OS X is detecting it by running dmesg. I've tried two unbricking methods on Ubuntu, am I doing something wrong? I just wanna be able to be able to turn it on and have it working. Can someone help me?

I ran
Code:
RUU_EVITA_UL_JB_45_S_Cingular_US_3.18.502.6_Radio_0.24p.32.09.06_10.130.32.34_release_signed_With_Partial.exe
I tried "HTC Unbricking Project" and a fix from here

I was S-ON before running the RUU

I tried the fixes in 64bit ubuntu 13.04 via parallels.

You've bricked your phone, it's very well documented within our forum that s-on + SuperCID + jb RUU = brick. Your only option now is to have a jtag repair done unfortunately. Out of interest, what made you think you needed to (or could) run that RUU in other to get s-off, or before having s-off?

PS. I see now that only after bricking your phone are you reading the PSA that states not to run that RUU while s-on. It's a bit late now, but this is case in point why research needs to be done before the fact.

Go here showthread.php?t=2119610 and under the At&t tab scroll down to version "3.18.502.6". That's the one I downloaded.

There's no need for a link, it's the 3.18.at&t RUU that bricks phones if they're s-on + SuperCID.

I cannot remember because it's been quite a while before I attempted this, but I followed a Tutorial on xda of how to do s-off.

----edit

and I didn't believe I could obtain S-Off through just running the ruu, according to the post I read it had to be done. Also I remember resetting my CID (if that's even possible). I did something with it before doing this as the post said to do so.

I hate to say it, but there isn't a single tutorial within our forum that states you need to run that RUU in order to get s-off, I know because I've read every single thread in our forum and am experienced with this device. The only mention of this RUU in regards to s-off is to avoid it if you're s-on, because clearly it bricks s-on devices.

What do you mean you did "something" with it? Did you even check your CID after supposedly resetting it? Your "if that's even possible" statement doesn't really instill much confidence that you really knew what you were doing at the time.

Alright, could you point me in the right direct for jtag repair? Or to buy the tools to do it myself? I wanna learn this type of thing because I may get a job repairing phones soon. (which it's really just replacing screens but I'd like the knowledge anyway)
