    Hi guys gonna go through all the "have i bricked my phone threads",but here is my story of woe:(Started having a few probs with my phone displaying the headphone socket,and contacted HTC who requested it be sent in for repair,but as my phone was rooted,i decided last night install a stock rom from shipped roms.

    Now my phone was bought 14 months ago,Unbranded unlocked,on contract with Orange,the phone was S-OFF,and i started by flashing stock Bravo hboot,then i downloaded a stock rom,connected phone,and everything seemed to go well.

    The phone informed me that an update was available OTA,and since i updated,the phone has been stuck on the HTC screen on reboot,i can get into recovery,but when i connect the phone to the PC,i get nothin,pop the battery out,reboots to same screen....any ideas or does this sound like i have killed it?:eek:

    OK, since its Orange, you will have to download the 2.3.3 Dev Gingerbread:

    HTC Developer Center
    This is unbranded but still covered by warranty by HTC.

    Boot into fastboot mode from off (back + power). Connect USB. If the label on screen changes from "Fastboot" to "Fastboot usb", you're good to go. run the RUU.

    If not, read on:


    • Run the RUU with your phone DISCONNECTED. Move it to a corner of the screen.
    • go to Start>Run and type in "%temp%
    • Look for a folder with a hexidecimal name - i.e made up of characters 0-9 and a-f, (e.g "62712b4d78f") that was created at the time you ran the RUU
    • Open the folder and find another folder of a similar style name
    • Open this folder too and there should be "rom.zip"
    • Copy this zip and rename it "PB99IMG.zip"
    • put this on the root of your SD card (Somehow) and boot to hboot.
