Hi There My HTC Desire has been running happily for over 3 years Yesterday I took it out my pocket and saw that instead of the usual 'desktop' I was presented with the hboot screen. Unfortunately, neither the volume up/down buttons nor the power button have any effect on the display so I am unable to select anything. I've removed the battery and re-inserted it several time but to no avail. My interpretation of the situation is that the volume down button is stuck closed so that the 'phone goes straight into hboot. I would welcome any other suggestions. For your interest here's the output from 'fastboot getvar all' option of mini-adb: INFOversion: 0.5 INFOversion-bootloader: 0.93.0001 INFOversion-baseband: 5.11.05.27 INFOversion-cpld: None INFOversion-microp: 051d INFOversion-main: 22.214.171.124 INFOserialno: HT0B5PL00076 INFOimei: [Removed by Mod] INFOproduct: bravo INFOplatform: HBOOT-8x50 INFOmodelid: PB9920000 INFOcidnum: T-MOB005 INFObattery-status: good INFObattery-voltage: 3669mV INFOpartition-layout: Generic INFOsecurity: on INFObuild-mode: SHIP INFOboot-mode: FASTBOOT INFOcommitno-bootloader: dirty-365c78d6 INFOhbootpreupdate: 11 all: Done! finished. total time: 0.078s Thanks!
