Hey,

This works with DS with Root S-Off

When you tried to install the RUU for this thread

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1002506

or Recovery gone missing after flashing

Your phone got stuck on HTC Logo

You tried to go into recovery but nothing but the image of a
phone


motorola_droid_hard_reset6.jpg

PS: I don't remember if it's the same but you get the concept




DON'T PANIC

Steps:

1. Download the PG88IMG.zip from downstairs

2. Put your sdcard on another phone make sure to put the file on your /sdcard

3. Go into Bootloader (Turn off phone then press the volume down button and the power button to go)

4. It will check for PG88IMG.zip and ask you if you want to install it (vol up for yes)

5. It will ask you to reboot do that

6. Turn off phone

7. Re-put your sdcard on another phone

8. Remove the PG88IMG.zip

9. Put it on your phone with a ROM on it

10. Boot into Bootloader and go to recovery

11. Congrats Clockworkmod is back on

12. Install ROM after wiping cache, data and system and there you go FIXED!


(Do not restore a backup if you were on 4ext recovery it will not work. Install the ROM up fresh then get 4ext recovery updater from market and re-install it then you can restore a backup)

mOh19973, first of all thanks for the guide!

I followed it after your suggestion here.

I tried this but even though the file's flashed to the phone the issue remains.

I'm not sure if the phone had CWM previously (I wasn't the one who s-offed/rooted it), so I don't know if that would prevent this from working... would it? I also tried this, but when I select recovery the bootloop just resumes...

Also, all the steps that required putting the sd card in another phone were done on a non-rooted Samsung Galaxy Gio, is that ok?

Thanks again for the help!

EDIT: So, after some info/guides on my original thread the apparent conclusion is... fried eMMC. :( thanks again everybody

recover update is in progress..... but never completes

Hi
sorry to post it here as reply, I am new in this forum and coundn't find link to create a new post.

My problem is:
My HTC Deire S got automatically restarted time and again last week, later it started going hanged, with black screen if I click Power button which wouldn't wake up until I take off battery and restart again. Few days later even that cannon be done. So I tried to factory restart since I didn't had any other option. but it ended with red triangle and exclamation mark.:confused:

Now when I put on the device I just get white screen with HTC logo
So I tried recovery updating
Device asks me if I want to start update
when I press 'Yes" I get :
Update is in progress... (in blue)
Do not power off the device! (in red)

But the update never ends, the screen remains as it is with 'updating' information until it has no battery power.
I had tried it for few times it is always same

I hope to get help from friends over here.

By the way I bought the device in China last May, and it came S-OFF
Information I get when I open HBoot screen is
SAGA PUT SHIP S-OFF RL
HBOOT-0.98.0000
RADIO-38.03.02.15_M
EMMC-boot

You're phone is not really S-OFF the HBOOT is wrong it should be when s-off 6.98.1002 so make sure you do the steps from revolutionary.io

Thank you very much.
Solution worked 100% at mine case.
Flashed PG88IMG.zip from SD, then flashed
RUU_Saga_HTC_Europe_1.47.401.4_Radio_20.28I.30.085AU_3805.06.02.03_M_release_199410_signed.exe
via USB.

Phone alive :)
