    Hi.

    I stupidly forgot that I was rooted and applied an OTA update (OTA_Bravo_HTC_WWE_1.21.405.2-1.15.405.4_release_P4ohim1mtp6zggcyon).

    I'm now stuck in a loop where it won't get past the initial HTC bootscreen.
    I can get to the bootloader (hboot 0.93), but if I choose recovery I get to the 'stock' recovery screen. trying to update to another rom results in 'signature verification error'.

    I've tried loading the zip from this thread:

    http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/177907-froyo-2-09-405-8-update-windows-not-required.html

    but it fails as my 'main version is older'.

    Any ideas on how I can get any working rom going?

    Was it branded? If so do you have a gold card?

    You need the highest number from here:

    Index of /shipped/Bravo/

    2.29

    Not sure what version it thinks it is though.

    Thanks for the reply - managed to extract the rom.zip from the RUU you mentioned, renamed it to PB99IMG.zip and updated via bootloader.

    Now to root it and restore my backup........:)

    Funny thing is, the PB99IMG for 2.29.405.2 is on shipped-roms.com too as I uploaded it there!!

    I did exactly the same mistake! Rooted the phone and forgot all about it until the OTA arrived. God damn- I have used the last two days with different solutions to bring life back to my dear Desire....GoldCard, RUU-updates...every trick mentioned in different forums. But no luck. Tonite, If no luck, I decided to send my Desire in for some kind of repair, then I saw this thread that got me going for a last attempt. And lucky me: The 'No Idea' Blog: Extracting ROM files from a HTC Android RUU So thx alot for sending me in the right direction :) My Desire is brought back to life again ;-)
