Have you tried pulling out the battery for a few minutes and then trying to turn it on again?

You could have a loose battery.

I doubt it's bricked. This situation is puzzling. Did you unlock the bootloader and are s off?

I figured how what happened.
I was using that new UniFlash Tool and it must have decided to overwrite my hboot partition. The phone is hard bricked. Got to get it repaired

Just curious as to why in the world would you use that program when flashing is already easy enough? Trust me, I'm not bashing you cause I've made mistakes myself.

Have you tried to copy the correct hboot to the sdcard and using fastboot command to get into the bootloader?

When you plug it into the USB port on your PC does it show up as QHUSB-DLOAD in device manager?

I wanted to try it out XD

The device is hard bricked, the led doesn't turn on when i plug it in, the device is recognized as QHUSB-DLOAD, and the HTC recovery project fails to recognize my device at all.

I talked to dexter93 from the unbricking project and he said all i could do is get it repaired. Unless you guys have any other ideas?

I had the exact same issue. Tried everything and had the Black Screen. I tried the Linux PBClear file method without any luck. Still had the black screen. I then went over to the Unlimited.IO IRC for help. They told me to take the phone back. So as a last resort, I unplugged the Phone from the USB, and tried the wire Trick several times. To my surprise the phone turned back on and booted into Fasboot and I was able to recover. Maybe that will work for you. Good Luck.
