Hi all, I have followed the steps outlined in the link below to try and update my HTC desire with a generic firmware. Debranding / Unlocking an HTC Desire - The giffgaff community I can do the goldcard part no problem, but the second part doesnt seem to work. After running the software update and clicking thru the options the phone goes into a reboot and the software update says it is waiting for the boot loader. Eventually this times out and the the application says that it cant connect to the phone. The phone seems stuck on the HTC screen and I have to pull the battery to reboot it. Here are the specifics of my phone: firmware ver. 2.1 update 1 baseband ver 32.36.00.28U_4.06.00.02_2 kernel ver 2.6.29-82821fb5 build number inandroid.cn software number desire_1.0_sense browser ver webkit 3.1 HBOOT 0.80.0000 Any suggestions? Cheers.
