    It's not 'bricked' - that's the fastboot menu, accessed by that key combo. Just pull the battery then restart normally.

    Hi Slug

    Battery pull dont work - the phone just wont boot, I get the hero logo on startup then the screen turns dark grey and then thats it! apart from the htc boot tune ( every 30 seconds ) I can get in to the fastboot screen with the on&back key push

    Have you got any ideas Slug or is it new phone time?

    Thanks in advance!

    How did it happen, Frank? Did you do anything just prior or did it occur out of the blue?

    The phones rooted with androot, and Im lead to believe ( by my little brother ) he thinks he installed a hero Sprint app - My phones a gsm on 3 network uk - The program he installed needed su permission, if that helps!

    Regards

    Frank.

    If an errant app is the cause, a factory reset will get rid of it. Power the handset up while pressing HOME + BACK and it should give the option to reset.

    And in the future, make sure to avoid anything Sprint or CDMA related like the plague.
