    usually if you can't get into bootloader, it means your phone is bricked and you need to give it to HTC for repairs. But try going into bootloader with you pc. Connect the phone to the PC and try to enter in bootloader

    So you took the battery out, put it back in, held down volume down button and power button, and still no bootloader?

    Xsamedx, welcome to Android Forums. I wish it were under better circumstances for you.

    Can you tell us where you got the PG76IMG.zip file and what you expected it to install/upgrade?

    Also, with the phone off, hold the power button down for 10 seconds and let me know what it does.

    Thanks to everyone for the replyy !
    My phone is now in a Phone Reparation Center, I will go and take it today, I will see if its ok or not, but I think the guy used a JTAG and RIFF to repair it, because he said that the boot was messed up ....

    I my self have been thinking of installing recovery this way and noticed that the zip contains an android id file do us all a favor and check and see if the modelid in the zip is the same as the one under the battery. Ive been worried that if they dont match the file won't be installed.
    The zip i downloaded said pg76100 and my phone is pg76200 so i beleive it wont work. But havent tested ive been busy.

    I might be completely off but I think you probably would have to call your carrier? Maybe they can unlock it for you

    And if you need to unlock that sounds odd did you get it from eBay or something like that

    Please give me the link to the pg76 that you used i can use it for good I'm trying to root mine with modified files and the drivers are failing for me. Please help. I'm only going to use it to get temp recovery and root then flash updated recovery and use rom manager. PLEASE.
    That is probably what you should have done so you arnt with out service change the recovery so you can flash whatever rom suits you.
