Unable to enter recovery mode
I'm trying to remove the bootsound for my Desire and so followed the instructions in thread 675580, page 3 (can't post direct URL because I'm a new user)
I replied there saying it does not work but after rereading carefully, I think it's because I tried the command while not being in recovery mode.
I then went around and read a few threads to figure out how to enter this mode. I thus followed the instructions in thread 6710092, reply number 4 in the part about "How to flash ROM".
I can get up to step 6 just fine. I even have the black screen with red triangle showing up. I then try the next step, that is running "recovery-windows.bat"
Unfortunately, adb-nilezon says it did not find any device and so errors out in the three steps inside the batch file.
The only option that I was able to find to get back the phone in a workable state was to remove the battery.
I noticed a behavior of the phone that is not mentioned in the above thread, so maybe I did not do something right.
In Step 5, right after I plug the desire to the PC, Windows says it has found a new device and complains it could not find the driver. I tried to have it search for drivers, but it could not find anything and thus aborted the install.
Along with this, in step 6, right after I press the power button to select Recovery, the phone seems to "reboot" as it shows the white HTC boot screen and it vibrates.
Is it possible that I am missing a part of the correct install?
I read all replies to the mentioned tutorial thread, some users have the same problem so I created a Gold card, which I believe I did right. But this did not change my situation.
When not in recovery mode, I'm able to use USB Debugging to connect to the phone and send my test applications via adb just fine.
Many thanks for your time and patience
