I think that your best bet is to follow the steps in this thread, starting with this 15th post: Stuck in boot-up screen.

You may want to read through them first before proceeding.

It's many steps. It's possible that the phone is unrecoverable, but that procedure is probably your best bet.

Ask questions if you have them!

I was reading an old thread (sometime in 2010) of yours this morning where you got an Eris running again over on XDA with similar issues and I was hoping for an answer but that was over my head.

Maybe you will have better luck. You definitely don't have the 1.51.0000 bootloader running on the phone at the moment.

instead of installing the entire sdk,you can use this download:
miniadb_v1031.zip

if you need drivers,use these: http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe

simply run the .exe file to install the drivers.

before you try all the steps in doogalds link,try a few simple steps:

extract the miniadb download,and move the unzipped folder to the root of your c drive(might change the name to "miniadb" just to simplify things)

open a cmd window. on windows 7,click the start bubble,then type cmd in the search box. this should bring up a small,black command window.


change to the miniadb directory with this command:
cd c:\miniadb

now,plug in the phone. enter:
fastboot devices

if you get your serial number back,then enter:
fastboot oem resetRUUflag

then
fastboot reboot-bootloader

that should get you out of ruu mode. if the phone was working,and booting normally prior to attempting htcdev unlock,maybe now it will boot.

if not,we will need to procede with the other directions to unlock,install a recovery,flash the files,and run an ruu.

umm... not sure what that command is

try this one:
fastboot reboot-bootloader

i see youve done it above... so are we to asume youre still stuck in ruu mode?

if so,we will have to procede with installing the htcdev hboot and unlocking it.

right... as doogald described,we will need to install the htcdev hboot and unlock it.

go to htcdev.com,register an account,begin the unlock instructions. choose eris from the pull down menu. the next screen will have a download link for 2.41.605.6.

download,and run the .exe utility as adminstrator,with the phone plugged in,in its current state. if you have troubles,ill post some directions for a slightly different way to install the new hboot.

ok... try and install the 1.51 hboot like this:

1)extract "rom.zip" from the 2.41.605.6 RUU utility like this:
Quote:
the .exe utilities can be finicky,so if you have trouble getting it to run, you can extract "rom.zip" in the following manner:
-start the utility
-check the "i understand" box to move on to the next screen
-hide the utility temporarily out of site
-search your C drive for "rom.zip". you will find it in a temporary location(it will be in a different spot each time you run the utility)
-open the folder location,and transfer rom.zip to a safe location on your PC.
-unhide and cancel the utility,youre done with it.
-rom.zip can be renamed to PxxxIMG and flashed in hboot,from a FAT32 sd card
2)after finding rom.zip,transfer it to your miniadb folder.

3)open a cmd window,plug in the phone,change to miniadb directory as you have done above

4)flash rom.zip with these commands:
fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip rom.zip

you should see a quick green statusbar on the phone as it flashes. the line may not go all the way across the phone screen,this is ok.

5)once its done,try
fastboot reboot-bootloader

and hopefully this time it will take you to the 1.51 hboot

now try and reboot the phone with fastboot reboot

*if the commands above give you any trouble,try removing the phones battery for a few seconds,plug back in,and just flash the zip with
fastboot flash zip rom.zip
(assuming the phone is still only powering on into ruu mode)

Hi I did exactly what you said to do to get that rom.zip, I even manually search each file on my netbook & was totally unable to find it any where. I am running Windows 7 starter ed. If that matters. Please help.

hmm,not sure why you could not find it. you can download it from here: PB00IMG-eris-1.51.0000-hboot.zip

in order to use it youll have to rename it,or modify the directions above to the name of this file. on second thot,lets just modify the directions so you dont have to change the name:

so heres what you will do:
1)download PB00IMG-eris-1.51.0000-hboot.zip

2)transfer PB00IMG-eris-1.51.0000-hboot.zip to your miniadb folder.

3)open a cmd window,plug in the phone,change to miniadb directory as you have done above

4)flash rom.zip with these commands:
fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip PB00IMG-eris-1.51.0000-hboot.zip

you should see a quick green statusbar on the phone as it flashes. the line may not go all the way across the phone screen,this is ok.

5)once its done,try
fastboot reboot-bootloader

and hopefully this time it will take you to the 1.51 hboot

now try and reboot the phone with fastboot reboot

*if the commands above give you any trouble,try removing the phones battery for a few seconds,plug back in,and just flash the zip with
fastboot flash zip PB00IMG-eris-1.51.0000-hboot.zip
(assuming the phone is still only powering on into ruu mode)

Good! Sounds like we are making progress. Now that you have the htcdev hboot,we will need to unlock it,and attempt To install a custom recovery. Refer to doogalds link in the second post.

sorry for the delayed response,foxy.

your next steps will be to unlock the htcdev hboot,and then install a custom recovery.

you can download the recovery image from here:
https://sites.google.com/site/scaryalienware/downloads/recovery-RA-eris-v1.6.2-trackball-optional.img?attredirects=0

use that in the following directions. these are my "universal" directions,but they should help you get the hboot unlocked,and recovery installed:

Quote:
i sometimes refer folks to my rezound guide in other forums,so i decided to make a slightly more "universal" version that i could replicate in other forums,so everyone has a dedicated guide,and there are not accidents with accidental application of rezound specific details or files. devices i am familiar with i will try and tweak and add device specific recovery downloads/info. whatever device youre working on,please feel free to post in this thread,i will be happy to assist you

before we get started,however,be aware that htcdev does have its limitations. it can be used if you only wish to add root access to delete bloat and run a few root requiring apps,but IMO it is best used as a "steppig stone" to get root for downgrade,or for other exploits to run. if s-off is availble on any "downgradeable to" firmware,i do highly recomend to try and achieve that goal if you wish to activly flash roms. im happy to help with this,as well,if needed.

the basic steps will be:
1)unlock with htcdev
2)temporarily or permanently flash a recovery
3)flash root files

before you start,go ahead and download these files:
-mini-adb.zip: mini-adb.zip
-the latest custom recovery image of your choice, for your device(post if you need help finding one)
-superuser files: for froyo use superuser 3.07 (found on revolutionary public wiki). for GB or ICS,use the latest superSU from this thread on xda (the download link is where is says: CWM installable ZIP: CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip )
-go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader and register an account



1)unlock with htcdev





2)flash a recovery




3)flash superuser root files*




if your device has procedures to s-off,or procedures to downgrade to more exploitable firmware,you can procede with that now

if youre considering leaving htcdev unlock,read this if you want to flash roms: s-on and want to flash roms? READ THIS

s-off is better,and worth whatever extra efforts to achieve if available.

*hope it helps,holler if you have questions

donate to my device fund
once you have a recovery installed,we can proceded with flashing the other files.

No,you should not be s off at this point. You will achieve s off with the steps we are about to do.

If you you were s off now,your recovery would be 10 times easier

it is not yet time for a custom rom.

do you have amon recovery installed,and are you able to boot to it?

there are 2 ways to get to recovery:
1)from powered off, hold vol up and power. youll see the skatboarding aliens,then recovery

2)from powered off,hold vol down and power. this should take you to hboot,where youll have an option for recovery

once we know that you are able to get to recovery,then we will organize the files you downloaded and flash them,and get the phone back to working order.

excellent! dooglads post above should have taken you to xda,where you needed to download the following files. there were alot of links to follow between here and the download,so if you got a lilttle confused on what to download,download these all now:
Quote:
"ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip" here

"MTD_Inspect_v0.9.zip" here

"ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" here (also, please see disclaimer here)

"Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip" from here

A custom (dev) ROM, or even a fully stock ROM such as the HTC Eris March 2011 OTA Stock ROM - v2.41.605.6
transfer these files to the sd card in the eris. you can enable usb storage from recovery,and transfer them that way,or you can put the sd into a card reader and plug it in to the PC:
-ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip
-MTD_Inspect_v0.9.zip
-ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip

place this folder into your miniadb folder:
-Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip


now,you will boot the phone into recovery mode(if youre not there allready from transfering the files).

the menu options youll need are "flash zip from sd card" and then simply find the file youre going to flash.

first,flash "ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip". make a note of wether or not you see any errors,and what they are.

assuming you see no errors,when the above opration finishes,then flash "MTD_Inspect_v0.9.zip". this zip will put a text file onto your sd card,so when its done,enable usb storage again,and look at the text file.. (some info on what youll see is here) the file will be somewhat confusing looking,so you might want to just copy all the text,then paste it into a reply box here. this should make it easier for you to read. i will post a copy of mine in the next reply. after youve inspected the text file,disable usb storage and return to the recovery menu.

if you find you have alot of bad blocks in /boot,/system,or /data then you will need to flash the last file: "ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" please note that if you only have 1 or 2 bad blocks,then do not flash this file just procede to the next step

now we can flash the root rom,wich will get rid of the crappy htcdev hboot,and get you a real s off hboot. you should have "Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip" inside your miniadb folder,so we are going to flash it basically like we did the 1.51 hboot in post #22.
-chose the option in recovery to power off
-open a cmd window,and change to miniadb directory,as youve done in post 22
-hold vol down and power,and the phone should start in hboot. select the fastboot option in hboot.
-plug in the phone
-flash the root rom with these commands:
fastboot devices

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip

this will start the phone flashing. if it fails,with an hboot preupdate error,just run the above command a second time:
fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip

this time,it should finish

be very careful not to interupt the phone while its flashing and doing its thing. after it has flashed all partitions,you can reboot into a working phone,with:

fastboot reboot-bootloader

note that you now have 1.49.2000 s off hboot then:

fastboot reboot

and if you boot to a working,functional phone,well step back and take a couple deep breaths. if you want a custom rom,or even a rooted stock rom,its easy to achieve with the s-off hboot,but well save those directions for another post,so we dont overwhelm you with directions at this time.

the bad blocks number is the only one youre real concerned with. as you can see,i only have 1,in "system",so i would not risk damage to the phone by flashing the nuke zip.

ouch,thats quite a few in system and boot. go ahead and flash the "ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" if you are waiting for confirmation that is the thing to do.

ive got to step out for a bit,but ill try and watch if you have questions

doh! *smacks forehead*

is your htcdev hboot still unlocked ?

looking back thru,it looks like ive forgotten that step

my apologies... add this step to the above directions(fastboot oem lock):

open cmd,chage to miniadb,etc. like youve been doing,then:

fastboot devices

fastboot oem lock entring this command may casue the phone to try and reboot. if it does,thats ok,give it a couple minutes,then unplug,pull the battery,and re-enter fastboot so you can continue:

fastboot devices

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip



** you did successsfully flash "ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip" and "ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" correct?

The Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip file that you downloaded is too small. It should be 107,427,740 bytes (or about 104909 kilobytes.) Your error message says that the file you are sending is 64129 KB.

Try downloading that file again, verify that it is about 104910 KB, and re-run the fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip command.

ok,please make sure to answer this:

** you did successsfully flash "ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip" and "ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" correct?


i suspect your bootloader is still unlocked,so lets try this from the top,and well check the md5 of the root rom in the process. good call doogald about the file being too small

open cmd,chage to miniadb,etc. like youve been doing,then:

md5sums Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip (should output 63eacc5ede3b179f95dc22d8ef585f94)


fastboot devices

fastboot getvar all

fastboot oem lock entring this command may casue the phone to try and reboot. if it does,thats ok,give it a couple minutes,then unplug,pull the battery,and re-enter fastboot so you can continue:

fastboot devices

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip

if you get a failed!flush again immediately error then repeat
fastboot flash zip Eris_RootROM_v2.19.605.1_PB00IMG.zip


*if it fails this time,please copy and paste your ENTIRE command window,not just the error. i have a feeling youre maybe just missing some steps each time that were not picking up on.

IIRC,the 99 fail is the unlocked bootloader error,and the header failure may earlier may have been becasue the bad download had the android info document or hboot image missing.

if you can verify that you have flashed "ErisMiscReset_v0.9.zip" and "ErisMTDNuke_v0.9.zip" ,and you can do the above without missing any steps,hopefully youll get it this time.

hang in there,your close to having a working phone!

scotty, I'm going to let you keep carrying the ball on this , but just want to remind you that flashing the root ROM also flashes an old version of the radio... he's definitely on an older version.

the ruu overwrote your custom recovery,wich is no big deal. since you have the s-off bootloader,you can easily install your recovery,just like you did with the htcdev hboot. you should still have it in your miniadb folder,so just place the phone in fastboot,open cmd,and flash recovery with this command:

fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img

reboot the phone with fastboot reboot

for a custom rom,i might suggest your first one to be a somewhat stockish one,so id recomend this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=726467

as doogald mentioned,youre on an older radio,so you can update that if you want by downloading this zip file and installig it in recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=297006&d=1269194832

you can install the radio and rom at the same time if you want,or you can do one first,then the other later.

youll just download,transfer to sd card,then flash them in recovery like you did the other files.

whenever yuo change roms,its not a bad idea to do a "full wipe" in recovery wich consists of:
-data/factory reset
-cache
-dalvik cache

bobcat has a good guide on flashing roms here:
Flashing Rom's without a PC

you can subsitute steps 3-9 with "download on to pc,transfer to sd card" if you dont want to use the phone itself to do the downloading.

just holler if you have any more questions!
