    I have just run AlphaRev S-OFF CD and got to step 3.. it seemed to be taking forever and i disconnected it but now the phone wont boot.

    I didn't take a nandroid backup and all the RUUs i try to put on have CID error displayed.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix the phone / get the correct RUU please?

    You can't get the correct RUU as it doesn't exist.

    Either make a goldcard or use the GB 2.3 RUU

    There is no orange one.

    I hope you made a gold card because as far as I'm aware you need to flash a generic RUU with (not 100% sure on this bit) the same version you were on.

    For example if you got the phone on 2.2 (Froyo) that's what you need to get. But like I said I ain't certain on that last piece of info so ideally get someone with more knowledge on the matter to confirm if it's correct.

    Hope it helps a little.


    Ahh Dan beat me too it.

    There is no correct. It's either goldcard (then any RUU works) or gingerbread from htcdev.com - kernel source - view downloads
