Hi!

I recently rooted my Desire with unrevoked 3 and I installed the ReflexS rom. Everything worked perfectly!

I was curious for Cyanogenmod and I downloaded version 7.0.3 directly through Rom Manager. When the download was completed it suggested to install which I agreed. I think clear Dalvik cache was marked, but clear data cache was not. I agreed... maybe my first mistake.

After this Cyanogenmod was installed, but my Desire stayed on the boot screen (sakteboarding android with running arrow) for over 30min so I took out the battery. I restarted and it goes well until the android setup screen "tap the android to begin". I can tap and it gets glowing, but it does not continue! I can not go any further than this. The only thing I can do is choose a language or shutdown.

To overcome this issue I thought of recovering/reinstalling my previous ROM. I also have a Titanium backup.
Now here's the problem: when start up into recovery, my volume buttons won't work so I can not enter into the recovery menu.

What should I do?
I'm getting desperate, because my phone is down at the moment!

Thanks for your help!

you mean volume buttons dont work in recovery or in bootloader ?

in recovery you can navigate using trackpad, in bootloader you must wait around 10-15 seconds until you can use volume buttons to navigate.

and yes it was a BIG mistake not to make a wipe before the flashing of cyanogenmod....

you should have done a full wipe

Ok will firstly, go to the Cyanogenmod stable topic to read how to install out. Secondly, avoid rom manager. Thirdly, to boot into recovery, boot your phone like normal and plug your phone into your pc. After about 20 second the usb will kick in. This is where you use the adb reboot recovery command in command prompt or terminal. Enjoy.

Do you have the drivers installed? You van try installing and then uninstall HTC Sync to get the drivers.
