Hello, i am stuck and hoping someone can assist me. Im a beginner with this stuff so my understanding is basic and instructions need to be idiot proof! I have purchased an htc desire (G7) bravo on ebay as faulty: crashes regularly and only restarts after an hour or so, hangs on white startup screen with green htc logo. Phone details: Bravo PVT4 Samsung amoled by looking at the LCD Ship S-on Hboot 0.93.0001 Since purchase i have tested it and the above is true. I am wondering if this could be a solvable software issue rather than hardware at fault. I have noticed that there are a screen full of unusual control widgets that i cannot get rid of by factory resetting, and that i cannot locate on downloaded apps menu- i wonder if someone has pushed these into the phone and caused this problem. So far i have rooted using unrevoked 3 and recovery RA 2.0.1 (as PVT4 and uncertain if 40,000 or 20,000). It took me sometime to get success because the phone would freeze but eventually with a bit of luck i got a success message from unrevoked and the phone entered recovery mode (black with green text). I powered down the phone hoping to complete later on but on restarting it now just hangs up and i cant get it to boot or enter recovery. Is this a bootloop? In addition sometimes it just vibrates 7 times before freezing on startup- what does this mean? I can access hboot and fast boot with power+vol down and these are stable. I have since set up adb on my computer and in command the phone responds to fastboot by providing its serial no. I am unsure exactly where to go from here. Is it possible to flash the operating system from fastboot? Or even the kernel? (i am uncertain how to aquire and use a boot.img file? and have had no luck so far tring to install one) I have tried downloading and flashing cm7.zip from the adb folder. i have tried the same with superuser, but i get the error message: failed registery (or something similar as i remember). So as you can tell i am well out of my depth but finding this very interesting and am eager to crack it (with some help). I am hoping to be able to use adb to rectify the problems or wipe the lot and start again. Any such help greatly appreciated, Regards, Mat.
