I've bricked my flatmate's Desire? [FIXED, thanks]
NOTE: THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED, See this post #97 by "teppic74" for how I fixed the phone
My flatmate recently got a Desire from Vodafone, it's got their latest ROM on it with all their bloatware.
I told him I could debrand it, but the goldcard method didn't work because he had bootloader 0.83.
So I followed a thread to this site on how to downgrade the bootloader:
So I did step 4... and then the screen went blank. I left it for a while, I thought it may be installing...
After a long time, I pulled the battery out and rebooted the phone ... I'm pretty nervous by this point LOL
Anyway, the phone reboots and I can hear the annoying HTC chime, which never happened on the Voda rom...
But I can't see anything. It appears that the phone is booting up, but the screen is not working.
Anyone got any advice on what I might do to fix this or am I toast? Grateful for any advice.
