    Ive just receive my htc wildfire s from the repair shop after hard bricking it by myself, they manage to bring my phone back to access bootloader but still stuck on htc green and white logo when you just turn it on,they used jtag method..my problem is I dont know what firmware should i use to flash my phone and bring it back to stock gingerbread firmware..

    here is my bootloader info :
    hboot - 0.90.000
    radio -
    I dont have any ***locked*** or ***unlocked*** phrase on the first line indicated - (and ive read some articles in other forum that it is necessary to update the bootloader to have ***locked oow*** appear on my bootloader and update my hboot to 1.08.0099 - 1.10.000 and then unlocked my bootloader via htc.dev officially).

    one more thing , ive tried flashing extracted ruu from football's post because like what ive said my phone is stuck on htc white and green logo when turning it on after a jtag...but my log says that "main version is older" ,, i tried it using goldcard and plain micro sd card.. So the big question is WHAT firmware or rom should i flash in order to use my phone again?? do i need to update bootloader first??? or what..what method should i use??? thus my wildfire s is still brick or un recoverable???

    Looks like you might have to update your bootloader first. I suggest you go to htcdev and update the RUU. As per Cafe's guide, your RUU is up to date if it's 'H-BOOT-1.08.0099 or H-BOOT-1.10.0000'
    If the update works, then probably football's collection will work

    I'm not sure but it looks that way. Anyway it doesn't hurt to try. The worst you'll get is the same error 'main version is older'
