    Hi
    I was asked to update to froyo ,went through the process when the phone re-booted I have no signal and get the message system error ( Force close/Wait) The phone is now trying to restart every 5 minutes very strange. I have no idea what to do next. It looks like the update has somehow caused a major problem anyone got any advice.
    Regards

    Tried replacing the battery still the same . When it is turned on it keeps re starting , I am on o2 but i think the phone is branded to virgin as the logo used to appear on startup could this be a problem.

    Does the phone manage to start up fully so you can get to settings & try a factory reset?

    Got the same problem here too. I've been trying various things for a while now (including factory reset) with no success. One thing I have just noticed though is that in Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Running > Android System is showing 0.00B. Open it up and it shows version 2.2 but not a byte of data. Phone can't seem to find WiFi, SIM card, SD card, GPSnowt at all (not surprising if there's no OS I suppose). Phone keeps re-starting every 3 - 5 minutes too. Urgent help or advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Ok, looks like I've cracked it now. After 4 attempts (each with increasing progress before failing) I managed to successfully install RUU_Bravo_HTC_Europe_1.15.405.3_Radio_32.30.00.28U_4.05.00.11_release_121865 over the hollow 2.2. Everything now worked again at least which was a great relief. Nevertheless I did a manual check for updates and got another download (maybe 1.15?). After this was set up I checked again and this time got offered 1.21. With that installed the phone re-booted but this time the sim card was locked. I bought an unlock code from here (cost about

    Hi Steve thanks for the information.
    I rang htc today and they took me through a full reset but still no luck. I did try your suggestions, but just couldn't get any sense out of the phone. It was constantly asking to force close and wouldn't let me manually install a lower firmware.
    The phone is being picked up tomorrow so hopefully they can sort it out.
    Thank for everyones help.
    Regards
    Carlton
