Default Bricked Desire HD on 3 network (UK) - help please!!

Hi all, impressed by the in-depth fixes I've seen on here but haven't found anything similar to my current problem. I'm a bit of a noob with the techy side of playing with my DHD so please bear that in mind!

So my situation is:

I have a DHD locked to the 3 (UK) network (I've heard this network can be a **** to work around their firmware..?). Tried to root it a few months back, didnt succeed but phone worked fine for a few months after so not sure if its related to that, or if my lack of success fixing this current problem might be. A couple of weeks back my phone started rebooting itself every so often, becoming more frequent, and sometimes when restarted would freeze. Eventually it went into a bootloop, starting the 3 logo animation and then the HTC logo, sometimes it would boot and run ok for a few hours, sometimes just looped over and over. I tried the HBOOT recovery screen thing and after a few tries it worked for a couple more days, then started going as far as the HTC screen before freezing. I eventually tried a factory reset, worked for another half-day then nothing since. I can get to the HBOOT menu, otherwise just powering it up does nothing, I get the 3 logo and thats it, just sits there displaying that. I made a goldcard a while back while trying to root but didnt really get around to using it, its no use to me at the moment as it checks the .img and gives me a CID (?) error. I've got the SDK manager downloaded but it isnt clear to me how I should be using it. HBOOT screen tells me:


Thats about as much help as I can be at the moment. Love this phone and would like to resurrect it if possible. Really appreciate if anyone can help!
