I get "remote :42 custom id check fail" during step 1, still it completes the zip transfer and completes step 1.
When I boot into recovery, I get black screen with red triangle.
My device manager shows the USB storage is getting detected, but step 2 gives error "device not found"
I can see the USB drive letter in My Computer as well, but cannot access it ( if i try to open in in windows explorer it give error " insert device " ).
I am on Asian Unlocked HTC desire with 1.19.xxxx rom and 0.80 Hboot.
Tried it with MAC and Live CD as well, the USB does not get detected during step 2.
Otherwise everything on phone is working just fine.
Adb is working in USB debug mode, device is getting detected, USB works fine otherwise, so its not USB issue either. Any devs out there who can help us?
I will try goldcard method now.
