Hello and welcome to the forum McBunnz - thanks for joining!!

I am not familiar with your phone, but can try and help you get on the right track.

Could you let us know which guide you were following to root/S-Off? You say your phone won't work... do you mean it is stuck in a boot loop? Are you able to get in to hboot (turn the phone off - take the battery out if needed - then turn on while holding the power down) - could you let us know what info is in there?

Thank you for the replay. Yes I was Using This guide How To: Gain Permanent Root and S-OFF on the T-Mobile G2 / HTC Vision - TheUnlockrTheUnlockr.
I can go to the hboot screen (with recovery, fastboot etc), I can start my phone, but after it turns on, it isn't getting further than the HTC welcome screen. I tried to factory reset my phone but it wouldn't work. I think I Briked my phone, but I have no Backup because it was only possible with a rooted phone. (Sorry for the bad english. I'm dutch ;c)

Sorry for taking so long to reply - I was in work earlier and had a few things to do when I got in!

If you select recovery, what does your phone do?

Right... this should be easy to sort out. We need to flash a custom recovery and then flash a ROM.

I will look for some files and get back to you

Have spoken to Scotty, one of the other guides, who has helped get the info.

Download either of these (both are custom recoveries) and check that the MD5 sum is correct and rename it to "PCM10IMG". Put the renamed file on the root of your SD card (not in any folders). Next, boot into HBOOT and the phone should just see it as an update file and do it's thing. This will install the custom recovery.

Before you flash a ROM, could you let us know your carrier/region?

Do you know what your build number was prior to rooting?

Cheers,

again, thank you so much for helping me! I'm so grateful! I tried to do it it. I took the file, renamed it. put it on the root of the sdcard. But when i H-boot the phone there happens nothing, it shows just:
the h-boot: checking sd: no loading pc10diag.zip
NO IMAGE!
loading pc10diag.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE
Loading pc10img.zip
NO IMAGE
Loading pc10img.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE
= Wierd I thing because there is a pc10img.zip file in the root of the sdcard.

I bought my HTC Desire Z in the netherlands, but I'm from belgium (Turnhout 2300).
But sorry I dont know what my build number was prior to rooting is :c. I never saw something like it ;c.
Again. Thank you and scotty85 for helping me.

just a couple of things to check:

1)that the sd is formated FAT32. this is a must! if its plain FAT,or anything else,PC10IMG will be invisible. if you find a format other than FAT32,youll need to back up the SD and reformat it.

2)make sure its named correctly. the phone must see "PC10IMG.zip",so if you are using windows,wich likes to automatically add and hide the file extention,then you just need to rename to "PC10IMG" as manually adding the .zip,and calling the file "PC10IMG.zp" results in the actual name being "PC10IMG.zip.zip" in much rarer occasion,if youre using someting other than windows,or just have your PC set differently,naming PC10IMG may result in it just being named "PC10IMG" with no file ext. so if thats the case,you will need to name it "PC10IMG.zip"

you also do need to use capital letters,and that is a number 1,not a capital "I",and a number zero,and not a capital "O",for the third and fourth digits. it may be obvious that the characters are,ands im not trying to insult you,just relaying some things ive seen trip folks up.

id be willing to bet the sd format is whats tripping you up,but check out thise 2 things and see if it wont flash for you then

checking sd: no loading pc10diag.zip
NO IMAGE!
loading pc10diag.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE
Loading pc10img.zip

Loading pc10img.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE

try naming the file with and without the zip.

if the sd is FAT 32,and youre not putting PC10IMG inside a file,then the name is the only thing that can be wrong

Cause the PC10IMG was named correct and you told i could be my sdcard. I went to the shop and bought a new SDcard. It worked, He asked to install the PC10IMG file, he installed the recovery. Asked to reboot, but after I rebooted the phone, I just got the White screen with the HTC Logo back. So He could now update, but with a recovery.img it wouldnt work. I'm not getting further than the htc welcome screen So its a start I hope.

Right... so you have managed to get the recovery on the phone?

At the moment, you don't have a ROM... this would be why it isn't booting.

Next we need to remove the PC10IMG from the SD card and put a ROM on there, boot in to HBOOT and select recovery... from there you will be able to flash the ROM.

Give me a couple of mins and I'll try find something for you

If you head here and follow the download link in post 3.

You are downloading RCMix Energised - this is a Gingerbread custom ROM that is Sense based. You can always look at changing the ROM later... just trying to make sure that I get you a working phone first

Remove the PC10IMG from your SD card and put the ROM on the root of the SD card. Next, boot in to HBOOT and select recovery - this should take you in to the recovery menu of the custom recovery you just flashed. Depending which recovery you have, you should have to use the volume keys to navigate the menu and power button to select the options.

Let me know how you get on and what is on the screen when you're in the recovery menu.

Right... using the volume keys to navigate, go to performs wipes (data/factory reset and Wipe Cache Partition) - don't really have to do this at the moment, but best to get in to good habbits

Next, navigate to Install ZIP from SD card and then search for the ROM you put on there, using power to select again.

Let the recovery do it's thing and flash the ROM and reboot system.

This should then take you in to the new ROM. First time can take a little longer - don't worry... if it doesn't boot, you can pull the battery and power on after a 10 secs or so.

Lemme know how you get on

Try downloading the ROM from here - make sure to check the DM5 sum of it (just below the download link), once on your computer. Then follow the same procedure as before... use the volume keys, perform wipes and then install zip from SD card.

Once all done, reboot system now and then you should be good to go

Try that one for now... it's not Ice Cream Sandwich, but you can always look at changing once we know we've sorted the phone out

Right... we will have to try something a little different then!

Try downloading http://www.androidfilehost.com/main/Thunderbolt_Developers/scotty85/PC10IMG_custom_Vision_HTC_WWE_1.34.405.5_Radio_12. 28b.60.140e_26.03.02.26_M.zip

You will have to rename PC10IMG and flash in hboot, just like the recovery

I have named the file PC10IMG and flash in the hboot. But he didn't find a file, just like yesterday with the recovery. he just shows
checking sd: no loading pc10diag.zip
NO IMAGE!
loading pc10diag.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE
Loading pc10img.zip
NO IMAGE
Loading pc10img.nbh
NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE
And if I try now to put the old PC10IMG for the recovery back on the root of the sdcard he wouldn't search for it anymore. The screen of checking sdcard isn't comming.

This is really strange... I don't understand why it doesn't see it!

There is another possibility... we can try and run a stock RUU on your phone (this is an exe file that you run on your computer). The RUU would take you back to factory settings... as if you had not tried to root. Once you have your phone working again, we can then look to root it

Just gonna get you the RUU

Right... here's the RUU:

http://shipped-roms.com/download.php?category=android&model=Vision&file=RU U_Vision_HTC_WWE_1.34.405.5_Radio_12.28b.60.140e_2 6.03.02.26_M_release_155556_signed.exe

The RUU is pretty easy to use... check out this guide on how to do it (don't worry that the phone that is in the guide isn't your phone... the priciples are the same )

just a couple things...

ignore the part of that guide about active sync. im not even sure what that is! at this point,you have not personal data to back up anyway,since we have dont wipes in recovery in attempt to install the rom.

since your phone wont boot,youll need to place it in fastboot,and then run the utility. simpy power on into hboot,and after the writing flashes,then select "fastboot" from the menu

No problemo... glad you're all sorted and back to stock!!

If you do decide you want to root, then we can look at trying to help you - I'm sure we would be able to get there!

Default Thanks very, very much indeed

Hi,

I bought a desire-z recently that was having the exact same problem as decribed at the beginning of the thread.

Thanks to you guys, we managed to get the phone back on it's feet again.

Many, many thanks!

However, I'm wondering about the following question:

The phone want's to do an update (over the air) and I'm a bit worried things will get messed up again.

The update is called:

OTA_Vision_Gingerbread_S_HTC_WWE_2_42_405_2-1_82_405_1_R_release_199251k3r3wb3a4l4wniec

The phone is s-off at this moment:

VISION PVT SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT-0.85.0010
MICROP-0425
RADIO-26.04.02.17_M2
eMMC-boot
Dec 27 2010, 22:19:17

And I'm in the Netherlands (and so is the phone;-)

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Christiaan

if you have not yet installed a custom recovery,there is no harm in letting the phone OTA. you can always install root and recovery after,if you are s-off.

alternatively,you can run an ruu to get youreself on newer firmware,or you can install a recovery,then flash a custom rom(tho flashing a rom in recovery does not update your firmware,just your phones operating system).
