Thanks again. That fixed the non-booting problem. It went back to having no radio; trying the factory reset from hboot now.
BTW, when it boots up in the bootloader, there are a few lines of text that show up for less than a second. I haven't been able to see what they say. One line says something about no image present or bad image. What's that about?
thats typical htc hboot behavior
it does not mean that files are corrupt missing from your phone. it simply means that the bootloader is checking the sd card for the various files that it can use to update. if it finds such a file,it will stop,unpack that file,and check it. if its acceptable it will update. if it finds no such files,then the writing just flashes,and disapears quickly.
youll notice if youll enter hboot without the sdcard in place,that writing does not flash.
at any rate,its normal behavior and nothing to worry about
Okay, upon doing a factory reset from the bootloader, I get a red triangle with a red exclamation point over a picture of a phone. Now what?
did you ever get the reset to work? what your seeing is the stock recovery,wich should have taken over,and wiped the phone very completely back to factory specs
Another BTW - after running the RUU with the file you linked above, after the phone started up and I went through the initial setup, it said there was a software update available. Which strikes me as odd, because it was connected only by WiFI, and still the X over the signal bars indicating no radio. It can't pull OTA updates over WiFi, right? How would it even know there was a software update available? Or maybe it was polling the Market?
indeed,the phone can and will update overwifi. if you allowed the update,it was fine,if you defered it,then youll just need to flash a custom rom so you dont keep getting pestered.
from the above post,i assume,youre completely up and running,phone on network,radio working,rooted,etc? if so,thats awsome! :smokingsomb:
glad i could help
