Greetings,
I am wondering if anyone has experienced an issue where it's impossible to get the phone to go into bootloader with the Volume - and Power Buttons. My DHD just boots up. I'm on Desire Revolution ROM 2.0.1 with S-Off. The only way I can get into bootloader is with adb.

Am I using the wrong button combinations? I've only had the phone for a few days and I assumed the way to get into bootloader would be the same as my Nexus One.

Maybe someone could point me in the right direction if I'm doing something obviously stupid

That is the correct button combination. Are you pressing them at the same time or do you hold Volume Down then press power?

restart the phone
when the capacitive buttons light is off immediately press and hold volume - button and keep holding until device is in bootloader
cheers

Also remember that your DHD doesn't actually turn off when you turn it off. You need to disable HTC FastBoot, Settings > Applications > Untick "FastBoot".

Try removing the battery for a minute. Then volume down + power button.

Was it rooted? Go into the rom first and uncheck fastboot. Settings, power.
