I got this desire HD from a friend. When he gave it to me, he said it needed to be flashed.
The thing is, When you press the power button, it boots straight up into Fastboot.
Here Is my Hboot Info

In Fastboot, i can move around with the volume buttons and power buttons(so that means the phone booting straight into Fastboot isnt a result of one of the volume buttons being stuck.)
When i try to access recovery from the Bootloader, It vibrates 6 to 8 times then the screen becomes black,it stays that way until i do a battery pull.
When i select factory reset from the bootloader, it does nothing.
WHen i select Image CRC from the Bootloader,These is what is printed on the screen.
As the digit are displayed, the first three look okay,but the last three which are BOOT RECOVERY and SYSTEM seem to have no digits, Which kinda looks like its empty.
THESE ARE THE SOLUTIONS I HAVE TRIED.
1. I tried flashing a recovery from Fastboot, but it gives an error like this:
C:\Program Files\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot devices
C:\Program Files\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
sending 'recovery' (3704 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.664s]
FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.672s
I get the same errors when i try to flash,erase or format the rest of the partitions(BOOT,SYSTEM).
2. I have also tried the HTC RUU, it finds the device and then gets stuck when it tries to boot into Android.
I have also tried the HTC RUU Hboot update but it also fails like the RUU ROm update.
3. I have also tried to flash the STock rom as PD98IMG.zip via bootloader, but when it finds the file, it asks me to press volume up to start update, when i press volume up, it loads the file and when its suppose to flash it, it sort of skips it and move to the next. It does that until its done the asks me to press power to reboot. Since it skips the files it stays the same after reboot.
3.I have Also tried flashing Eng-Hboot as PD98IMG.zip, But it skips that also.
4. I also tried to use this command Fastboot oem boot
And this is what i get:
C:\Program Files\Minimal ADB and Fastboot>Fastboot oem boot
(bootloader) Error status=0x400008
(bootloader) [SD_HW_ERR] SD: read fail ..
(bootloader) [SD_HW_ERR] read data fail in CMD17
(bootloader) [SD_HW_ERR] SD: Read data fail..
(bootloader) [ERR] partition_read_emmc(453): error 13
(bootloader) [ERR] boot image does not exist!!!
OKAY [ 1.418s]
finished. total time: 1.418s
I am begining to think that some how the partitions are corrupt or something.
PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!
