Semi Brick (hopefully) on Desire Z after attempted S-Off
Hi, hopefully someone can help!
i tried to root my Desire Z using the VISONary+ method in theunlockr.com. i downgraded fine (sort of, took a bit of wrestling), got temp root with VISONary+ fine.
The got to the
"insmod /sdcard/wpthis-OTA.ko" stage (theunlockr says wpthis.ko, but my phone would not recognise this file), but at first this did not work. frustrated i tried the gfree route on xda, still had problems so went back to the VISONary+. this time the "insmod /sdcard/wpthis-OTA.ko" worked, as did the "dd if=/sdcard/hboot-eng.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18"
Unfortunately when the phone rebooted i got into the hboot, but that is it. i can get no further.
i can get into the Hboot screen via the normal power+vol down, but loading and restore just brings up the white HTC screen and factory reset starts, but brings up the red triangle.
is there a fairly simple way out by changing a file on the sdcard, and/or another method, or have a complete fook up? Speaking to a local phone repair shop they think they may be able to fix this for circa £65, but obviously sorting it myself would be better.
Thanks in advance!
if it help the bootloader shows
