    Hi all,

    I seem to posting a lot here lately ... sorry!!

    For whatever reason, I've decided to go back from the Custom ROM's I've been flashing to the official "HTC Telstra Froyo" here in Australia.

    I've installed HTC Sync, downloaded the official RUU file from the HTC Website, and following instructions ... (Open HTC Sync, select HTC Sync from Connection Drop Box), then running the RUU exe file.

    Confirmation screens follow, and it all goes well up until it tries to load the Bootloader in the phone.

    The boot splash screen is displayed, but after a few minutes the computer informs me that it cannot load the bootloader.

    If the USB cable is unplugged, it displays the bootloader, and the only option given is "RUU".

    Plug the cable back in, and it goes straight back to the boot splash screen.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    Cheers heaps guys!!

    Currently on MacLite V1.0, Sense Rom.

    Had to switch it from Defrost as it didn't have an "HTC Sync" option on USB Connect.

    Which one is the fastboot screen?
