OK, i posted this question over on xda but so far it is unsolved. Hoping i have better luck on here as i have trawled thread after thread with no luck.. For ref this is the thread i started on xda.. [Q] What the hell has happened?? - xda-developers Issue: Phone will not go past o2 splash screen Cause: Have no idea - phone rang whilst on charge, went to answer, phone rebooted and here i am! Repair attempts: Batt out and reboot = fail Into hboot/fastboot screen then select recovery = fail (hboot screen no probs but hangs on o2 splash after selecting recovery - never makes it) Getting twitchy now.... Attempt unrevoked again with goldcard in = fail (unrevoked still waiting for device) Try PB99IMG.Zip = fail (CID error (incorrect) even though goldcard is in???) Cid is O2___001 but dont know rom number as it was defrost... so cant attempt to make another goldcard incase mine is not working.. Thats where i am now... no matter what i do phone just goes to o2 screen and stays there!!! If i could get unrevoked to see phone in hboot/fastboot screen i may be ok but have no idea how?? OR.. a pb99img.zip that will work and not give me cid error??? It is an o2 branded phone and i was rooted and running DeFrost 3.6 with no issues. I cant believe phone is totally dead and bricked.. Hell i dont even know whats wrong or what caused it??? Is there anyone that can help me please.. tearing my hair out here!! ps running win 7 x64.. not brill with "pushing" ( took me forever to work out how to use the enableqxdm 0 command - but got there in the end) or linux but will learn quick if fixes the phone!
