Hi guys, Sorry for being a n00b, but I have officially killed my Desire after using unrevoked3 to root and am hoping for some advice on resuscitating. After rooting, I installed Clockwork Mod Recovery and tried to do a backup. The handset crashed, mid-backup and started getting to the HTC splash screen, vibrating and restarting. After about half an hour of this, I did a battery pull. It's gone down hill from there. Now, when I start the handset it doesn't even reboot - just sits on that screen for hours until I battery pull again. I have access to FASTBOOT and RECOVERY so am thinking all hope is not yet lost. I cleared the dalvik cache, and master reset the phone before attempting to restore from the backup I'd been making - when I do this, all I get is an error stating: File not found. Next step attempted was to reinstall the RUU from my PC. I'm mounting the SD card through Recovery, but when I try to run the RUU I get Error 170 Please ensure your phone is connected. (The drivers for the handset are showing as Android Phone>> My HTC at the moment, and it will not allow me to update them...) Finally I attempted to install a new ROM from my SD - this seems to install ok, and advises me to reboot - this is when the handset sits on the HTC splash screen for hours. Anyone who can suggest a fix will win my eternal gratitude, several brownie points, a buttload of good karma and some metaphysical cookies.
