2. It was "waiting on the bootloader" (and the phone had the HTC letters up)
3. I got a USB 170 error
4. Now my phone shows either the black screen with HTC when the usb to comp is plugged in or an Hboot with only RUU as an option.
Please help, I really appreciate any advice you can give.
this happened to me.
basically the RUU reboots ur phone and goes into bootloader and then installs bootloader drivers onto the pc. for whatever reason my pc did not like that swap mid process so it would always go to an errored state. here is how to make it work
1 -> try RUU, it will say loading bootloader and then error out, meanwhile phone is black with silver HTC
2 -> at this point open device manager on the pc and verify that the phone is connected using a "bootloader" driver. u just have to see the word "bootloader".
3 -> make sure there are no "Restart the pc to use the new drivers" messages on the pc. if there are, reboot pc, battery pull the phone and start at step 1. there wont be a restart message the next time.
4 -> press exit on the RUU error screen. leave the phone connected as is. the phone should still have the black screen with silver HTC.
5 -> run the RUU again, accept all prompts, this time it will go past that screen and complete the process.
6 -> enjoy.
