Default Microwave it,

You can put it in the microwave for 3 seconds, it will burn the internal antenna and you will not have any signal at all. I've tried unplugging it during the flashing, that doesn't work either. You can still flash afterward. LOLX

HTC FUZE/AT&T CARRIER U.S OF A

OS Version:
5.2.23562 SENSE WWE. TAEL ROM

DATE: APRIL 16, 2010

RADIO VERSION:
RAPHAEL 1.17.25.09/WITH 1.14.25.35 RILPHONE

PROTOCOL VERSION:

The easiest way is to download and flash the free diamond unlocker. It's a lot classier than going the microwave route, lol. Seriously, that's just cheating.

Radio: 1.17.25.09

Don't worry dude.. it is because the Radio is not compatible, try updating your radio when the screen is white.. It will definitely work. I had this issue once.. but i figured it out and my mobile is fine ever since.. You can find the latest radio on the radio thread...

All the best.. do let us know what happened..

I don't know how to update the radio since it will not do anything. It still can go to bootloader to update room but after complete it will just keep on rebooting and not load the OS. Can you tell me how to update the radio?
