So i have an HTC WildFire S and i think it is bricked, i was running CM7 and it started not reading my batteru right so i decided to go stock. i am S-off with unlocked bootloader, i used this RUU RUU_Marvel_Virgin_Mobile_1.37.351.1_Radio_47.10.35.3029H_7.46.35.08_release_188032_signed.exe

It got to "waiting for bootloader...." but phone just shutdown then it got error cant connect. so i closed the RUU and took my battery out and tried to boot 3 vibes no led and no screen.

tried vol down + power same thing

I have tried everything here not even any of the PG76IMG.zip file on SD are working an im stressed now :/ there is no warranty, i bought it off ebay please help! this is my business phone

I have just read something like this.

U need to jtag ur phone but try this see if it works.

Download the pg76img.zip from the above link

Put in your SD card

Press power and volume down

It should do the three vine ok. Wait for more vibes or just press volume up several times after 5 minutes or so.

It's like flashing ruu from hboot. But without seeing the screen.

See if works. Post ur result.

Somewhere in there u ll get 7 or 5 vibes means u r bricked. I actually forgotten the thing.



Volume down + power = 3 vibes

Volume Up + Power = 3 vibes

Volume Down + Up + Power = 3 vibes no matter what i do it's 3 vibes.....that half good news....right?

You flashed a Virgin Mobile Canada RUU (GSM/Marvel) to your Virgin Mobile USA (CDMA/Marvelc).

Trust me. Been there. Done that. The 3 Vibe Fix does not work. Qualcomm diagnostics mode does not look at your SD Card.

You need the QPST tool. Google it. After you have it, go to http://teamblueridge.com/irc-channels.html and sign in to the bottom one using your XDA name. Ask for insink71. If he's not there, come back later. I will be on tomorrow to help you, but I can't tonight.
