I had same problem with my HTC 7 Pro (bricked) and on last december and, if I remember well, with goldcard I was able to get back my bootloader.
Then I could HSPL my device and install custom rom!
Have a look also to the video in the third or fourth post of this thread to see how to connect sd reader, phone etc etc...

Hello wonderful tutorial, but the GoldCardTool link is dead, and tried to find this software on many sites and got nothing .... but even so it still seems a very simple tutorial for users.

Add the following image nbh.
- MONDIMG.nbh to Mondrian (HTC 7 Surround)

Thanks and sorry for my bad English

I haven't tested, but I'm 95% sure that this method will fix your phone.

To enter USB Host Mode, shut down your phone and then press power+camera+volume-down for about 10 sec. The phone doesn't need to be connected to a pc.

First of all, did not know that there was one more command to the device,
such as mentioned by the major user MarysFetus, so I decided to turn my HTC Trophy with DFT HSPL v3 to the original custom OSPL to test this method and update to the 8107 version with the zune, and did not want to update it more if I suffered half brick lol. (Also that it did not take this method as I HSPL available, but curiosity killed me haha)
Thanks for giving the user Budniu version 0.0.5.

As it was held the following commands (hold) "power / volume (+) / camera" and we'll be out a phone with a USB and a PC laptop and thus to test the method could make the Gold card method of this post. .. satisfactorily.
By that I mean it's a great post!
Maybe holding down the buttons (volume (less) + Camera button + Power) came into USB Host mode and may also perform the same method and tested it or not, since I never was needed ..... . HSPL qu already available, but it is now certain is that this method with the first mentioned commands could make the gold card, simply out of curiosity: P

Sorry for my bad English and I use the google translator and I would not confuse users for my bad translations

The difference is buying wires, or actually building custom wires yourself.
