I'm pretty new at this. Was just given this phone, was going to do the update from HTC Sync, which I have since realized I shouldnt have done anyway, the phone got disconnected during the update and is now bricked. I can hold the volume button and power and get to the htc download mode. When I press reboot to bootloader, the boot to recovery mode it shows an exclamation point in an upside down triangle.

I've searched for hours trying to find a way to reflash the factory firmware and am not having any luck. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

The RUU attached to this post should work beautifully for you.

You can also read through that thread of mine to unlock your bootloader and root the phone.

Heres a direct link to the RUU.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/bd2u64...y4/0PM3IMG.zip

Unzip the download.
Copy the 0PM3IMG.zip that is inside to a SD Card.
Put the sdcard in the phone.
Boot the phonr into download mode.
Hit volume up key to flash the ruu.
You will most likely need to do it 2 times.
Possibly more. If the phone reboots without flashing everything do it again.
You will see when it flashes system files. If it flashes system it is good to go.

Reboot the phone.

Enjoy the Fresh Out of the Box phone.

I am having the same problem. I followed your directions exactly, but I receive a failed message. I've tried several times without success. Is there any thing else I can try?

I successfully flashed a RUU on this device. I can walk you through it

I also received a failed message -2,19. Any help would be appreciated. Wondering if maybe the zip is just corrupted as I downloaded it with ADM?

If I remember right, I booted to fastboot and typed 'fastboot oem RebootRuu' (without quotes) to get to the RUU flashing fastboot partition, then I flashed the smaller hboot ruu zip first, and the other large ruu 2nd.

I used the file downloaded by htc sync manager and cancelled the software update before it finished decompressing the archive.

I sold the one I was using but I have another at the house. I need to order a battery and screen for it and then I'll record a step by step of my method. Might be a week or so
