You may have to repeat this until you get the timing just right. Black screen appears and sd card error message scrolls. After about ten seconds, recovery menu appears (all in very small font). Volume-down to "wipe cache partition" at bottom of list and tap power key. Cache gets cleared. Then select "reboot system now" by tapping power key again. Done!

Thanks for the assist...apparently my timing must suck because I get stuck on the exclamation point screen.


GEEEZ it must be my trex arms and fat fingers...that took FOREVER to get right but I did eventually get to the screen to wipe the cache partition. It was the up down volume that was the key. HTC said vol up only and it just wouldn't go with that. Thanks SolApathy!!
