I wonder if it could be USB bricked. Its fixable if it is via this post:

[DEV] USB-BRICK FIX - Restore USB function on your bricked Desire - xda-developers

But don't do that until we know for sure.

Try the RUU on different ports. Make sure you kill as much on your PC as possible via task manager and that all drivers are installed.

How are you running the RUU. Try right clicking on the icon and then "run as administrator" its a long shot but it might work.

If running as admin doesn't work download this you seem to have the same Desire as myself so I have the file handy. Once downloaded, from Windows make sure the file is called;

PB99IMG.zip

not pb99img or PB99IMG.zip.zip as Windows might try to rename it! Once your sure thats right put the file in the root FAT partition .dir of you valid goldcard, put the card in the phone and boot into recovery. This is a way of RUUing your phone without USB and it might take 10 mins to complete so make sure you have a good charge before running. Saty with it, it will aks you questions, answer with the vol UP DOWN buttons. Your phone should NOT be connected to your computer.

Stock means the device is as it was when it came out of stock. i.e out of the factory or out of the shop.

Backup CID missing? Of dear. Thats usually a derivative of Misc error.

You can either try this:

[HOWTO] Fix the Backup CID Missing Error On UnrEVOked | Root My Droid

Or look in the rooting FAQ for Misc which advises to downgrade. Nightmare.

how do you have s-off in hboot when you applied a pb99img.zip?

odd
only way to fix this is to use teppics downgrader to downgrade to 2.1 (needs goldcard)
root using unrevoked 3.14
flash either a rooted stock 2.2 rom or a custom rom
flash new radio

Sounds botched to me. That S-off should not exist. I doubt you will manage to successfully root that easily. Its almost as if an OTA was received over a rooted phone.

It needs an RUU. definitely go for downgrade tool.

drukkie can you please answer the questions

what hboot is it? as in what does it say ion hboot regarding pvt, hboot version etc etc?

how did you install the pb99img.zip without flashing hboot? did you delete the hboot.img from the zip?

judging by your posts you are not thinking about anything you are doing and i suggest you stop before you brake something permanently.
give us the info i asked for and well be able to give you direct answers

hmmm hboot must have been missing from the pb99img.zip

you get a red circle cos you have stock recovery not a custom one

you have two options as you are in a situation that isnt normally possible

flash recovery manually from fastboot (as you have s-off)
choose what recovery you want (i like amonRA but the most common is clockworkmod 2.5.0.7)
http://mirror.kanged.net/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.7-bravo.img

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.7-bravo.img (or whatever your recovery img is called)

download rom of choice, boot to recovery and flash a rom of choice (this is not guaranteed to work as its not been tried)

OR

downgrade using teppics downgrader to a 2.1 rom and then root it (will fix the misc error) then flash rom of choice

There is only 1 way. As previously mentioned, go into the rooting FAQ and look for MISC error. There is a link to Teppic74's downgrade tool

EDIT:
maybe he could try my first one just as he has s-off

How? If this were the case wouldn't it be easy to write an S-Off RUU? I thought that the "S-On" was like BIOS on a PC, a completely different "resident system," untouchable, and one of the reasons why HBoot needs fooling rather than a simple S-On to S-Off overwrite?

@ Drukkie, was your phone new when you bought it?

no
it its overwritable via a signed hboot from a pbimg or ruu

however if its a dev device this could be the case but this is why i wanted him to post what it actually says in hboot which he seems to be ignoring (to my annoyance)

Yes and no. As soon as you decide to flash a stock RUU that has a HBOOT update in it, this hacked HBOOT will be overwritten.
You do have the option to remove the HBOOT update from the rom.zip inside the RUU. Since your phone no longer checks signatures, you could easily do that.
Also, you then still have the option to flash custom recovery, or different kernels using the fastboot functions described above (fastboot flash, et al).

Because an RUU overwrites everything. Hboot, Radio, Recovery, Fastboot, NAND

Security flag is in Radio NVRAM. To get S-off, we are just flashing custom Hboot.

Mandy is referring to a Dev device not just an engineering hboot
at this point it could be completely possible

these devices are more rare then you can begin to imagine, (like the one i did last year remember)

mmmm maybe this might shed some light....
i work for a cellular company and i swapped my x10 for the desire with a techie.
i think the device was a test device from htc since my phone does not look the same as the ones we currently sell. my home menu back and search button is a diffirent colour to all the devices i've seen.

also on the front there is a serial number punched in...barely readable.
D40294

does it make sens?

Sounds like a dev model, hence the S-OFF after flashing a PB99IMG file

also on the front there is a serial number punched in...barely readable.
D40294

does it make sens?
Mandy was right
you are using a dev device

:/
RUU will have killed youre engineering recovery

try this

put this on root of sdcard and rename it to "update.zip"
http://mirror.kanged.net/recoveries/recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.7-bravo.zip

boot to recovery via hboot
when at the circle/triangle with exclamation hold down up + power to take you to recovery
click apply update.zip and it should take you to clockwork mod

flash an rom from there

yes that one

the other method regarding update.zip failed because you have done an RUU on a dev device and its removed your engineering recovery


so remember the command in fastboot is
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.7-bravo.img

It's a command you run from the pc. Do you have the android sdk on your pc?
