The phone emits 1 vibration when tring to boot - just as it used to before this all went wrong.

here's the info copied from CMD as per instruction - ( for any recovery in case you need to know its windows xp sp3 that i'm using, and although the pc has card reader i am not able to access the micro sd card on this pc nor others that i have....can always buy an external reader if that makes any difference).

Guys......obviously first and foremost hoping to get the phone working again, then will gladly listen to any advice about how/what to do to make life more simple to avoid these issues in the future!!!!
in finding an ruu to run on a stock phone,2 important criteria must me met:
1) the main version must be equal to or higher than what you have
2) the rom must be compatible with your CID(carrier id)

i will do some more searching later,but a quick search in the usual spots doesnt show your exact ruu. if we cannot find it,we have a couple of options:
1)unlock the bootloader thru htcdev and install a recovery. we can enter a few adb commands with the phone in recovery,and change the main version to a lower number,so we can flash an older ruu

2)create a "gold card" so we can flash a different carriers RUU. there are a couple that are higher build numbers,but for different carriers here: Shipped ROMs unfortunately,youll need another android phone with an sd card to create the gold card.

gold card directions: HTC Desire: Updating To Froyo (Official OTA) For Network Branded Handsets | Mike Southby

3)combination of 1 and 2

in order to accomplish 1,we need to find an ruu with the same carrie id as yours. i.e.,the build number will contain the "161"... x.xx.161.x

im off to work,but ill search for ruus later if you guys dont have any luck. failing that,i can help if you want to procede with one of the other options above
