Phone bricked! Stuck without Fastboot, Recovery or ROM after failed RUU flash

    My Problem:
    Was using the HTC Desire bought in India. I rooted with Unrevoked 3.21, S-OFF with Alpharev. I was thinking of taking my phone to HTC to show an LED burnin problem, and tried to unroot by flashing the RUU for Asia_India: RUU_Bravo_hTC_Asia_India_1.21.720.4_Radio_32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.02_2_release_127705_signed. I thought that was the correct RUU.

    I booted my phone in Fastboot, applied the RUU, and it rebooted my phone into RUU. Then it flashed an error message saying the RUU version was incorrect. Being the idiot that I am, I rebooted the phone..And got stuck!

    The phone does not boot. On pressing Vol- and Power button, it vibrates, and then nothing. Screen is blank. It wont boot into Fastboot, Recovery or the ROM. If I connect it to USB and do the Vol- and Poweron, it detects my device as an Android 1.0 device.

    I have tried the following:
    1. Went to Android SDK, tried flashing Clockworkmod recovery image with the command:
    Code (Text):
    1. flash recovery  recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.7-bravo.img.
    [FONT=&quot]
    Response:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]
    Code (Text):
    1. C:\Software\htc\android-sdk-windows\tools>fastboot flash recovery recovery-clock
    2. work-2.5.0.7-bravo.img
    3.   sending 'recovery' (4216 KB)... OKAY [  0.656s]
    4.             writing 'recovery'... INFOsignature checking...
    5. FAILED (remote: signature verify fail)
    6. finished. total time: 1.094s
    [FONT=&quot]

    2. Tried flashing the RUU again. At times it gives me a "Battery charge below 30% error". At other times, it gives the previous error, that my version is incorrect.

    Please help my Desire to get back on its Android feet.. If I take the phone to HTC, they wont repair it because by rooting it, I've voided my warranty. Guys, any help would be great..

    Sorry if I posted in the wrong place, or if I somehow missed any previous solutions. I did try all the keywords that I could think of, in Google. Unlike me, most people with similiar complaints seem to be able to get into Fastboot. I cant!
