    Hey, my newly bought Tattoo became unbootable a few days ago.

    It worked perfectly fine two days ago, then it started to randomly reboot itself, but after that, it became completely unbootable, as in, it was stuck at the "TATTOO" screen. The phone internals are completely untouched, no custom images, not rooted, no nothing, it's factory fresh.

    The battery is full too, and I didn't install anything that could possibly have corrupted the bootloader (or whatever is failing to load).

    I already tried to wipe the user data _TWICE_ (using HOME + BACK + POWER) with no success. I'm also perfectly able to get into HBOOT (using VOLDOWN + MENU + POWER), and connect via usb (using "FASTBOOT USB" from HBOOT). However, I can't completely wipe the cache with fastboot.exe from the android-sdk, since it doesn't allow it: "erasing 'cache'... FAILED (remote: not allow)".

    I really appreciate any help, I just got this phone, and I really don't want to buy a new one (I can't return it, it's a used one...) :(

    1. Is it a custom rom? If so you can always reinstall it.
    2. If its a stock rom, you can get your rom image from shipped-roms[dot]com and try to reinstall it. make absolutely sure that you download a rom for your region tattoo (tattoo is listed as click on the site). seniors can help you with the procedure.
    3. If it sounds too scary, the service-center it :)

    No, or to be precise, I don't know. since I've got it, I haven't modified it in any way, so I suppose it's still the original rom.

    Apparently shipped-roms DOT com seems to be down, or at least the Tattoo roms are missing (a google search doesn't show up anything) :(

    I forgot that Tattoo used to be named "Click" - my bad.

    To be honest, I wouldn't even know which one of these to download. :(

    Yeah, well, I already found the Link. However, I can't apply any of the roms, since fastboot doesn't allow me to modify the memory. :(
