Default Bricked HD2 repair

Having my TMOUS HD2 bricked by using Task 29 and 2.09.51 radio, thus losing the warranty, how much does it cost to have it repaired by HTC? Do they even accept them for repair?

Does it even boot to the tri-color bootloader screen? If so, you can fix it (I think). If it is indeed dead, there are some posts describing brief, furtive encounters with a microwave... (wink-wink-nudge-nudge)...

Hope you get your device either fixed or replaced soon...

Since it's less than 2 weeks since you got it, just take it to the T-Mobile store you got it from, and tell them that it just stopped working for no reason. I know it's bad thing to do, but it's better them than you right... I am sure they are prepared for the first set of devices to have some issues

Just be ignorant and tell them that you left the phone charging overnight and the next day morning, it just stopped working. They will just swap the device. Just make sure that you go to the store in-person to pick up the deivce. If you mail it in, they would dignose and probably know you have messed around with it.

I did the same thing with I flashed my device the next day it came out. I flashed a Custom ROM that had a non-compitable radio and it just did not boot. No bootloader mode.. nothing. NADA...

I called the store I got it from, he asked me to come by the next days since he was of all the devices and he was expecting a few the next day. I asked him to reserve one for me for the exchange for the damaged device. I went in the next day.. They just swapped the device. I actually told him to switch the battery from the new device to see if this one works, he said, it does not matter as he had send the whole device back anywayz..

So, good luck. Hope this helps.

Same as above for me except they had no devices left. Out of stock completely with no ETA. I got my refund and I'm back to being HD2'less.

Nothing to do with task 29, task 29 is safe. Radios with ..51.. are deadly.

Unfortunately some of the ROM's can be the kiss of death.

I can tell you that you have completely bricked the phone and they can't tell what ROM you have then you can probably get the warranty with HTC. If they discover you have a ROM it will be shipped back to you and they won't even fix it. It's a hit or miss with them.

I sent back one HTC HD with custom ROM and they didn't have a problem. I snet another one back and they declined due to custom ROM.

Just hope you get them on a good day
