    so is it just a blank screen? after the htc white screen? not boot animation?

    what recovery do you have? it should say at the bottom of the main menu.

    Just a blank black screen after the htc white screen. No boot animation of the 4g or anything.

    Recovery -> Build: Ra-supersonic-v2.3 - HAUS MOD rev.A

    ok that is a decent recovery. unfortunately i never had tried it before. but it is based off of amon ra which is good.

    ok lets try and reflash the rom. this time lets wipe everything except for the sd card (i would also do this three times). flash superwipe and then re-flash the rom.

    NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok now that you have a working phone, if you want i can walk you thru how to unroot. it is not really necessary though. unrooting with your hboot is really a pain to do.

    so its up to you.

    Yes, Need to unroot if you don't mind. Still using the RUU file?

    Yes. The first thing they do is boot you into boot loader anyway. Changes can't be made while the phones booted.

    Where would I create the folder "Android" at? Also I'm running on Windows XP. Had to download the "Open Command Here" from Microsoft.
     
  16. ocnbrze

    the android folder just needs to be on the desktop somewhere.

    Haha, opps. Had Disk Drive for charge only. Also, mine shows this:


    C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\My Documents\android>adb shell
    sh-3.2# cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_image
    cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_image
    sh-3.2# chmod 755 /data/flash_image
    chmod 755 /data/flash_image
    sh-3.2# /data/flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
    /data/flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
    sh-3.2#

    That correct?
     
  22. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    Updating now. Will phone die going through this process? It's still connected to my Computer.
     
  24. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    its possible. i always make sure that i have at least 50% battery before trying any of these kind of things. you could brick the phone while it is updating and then the battery dies. hopefully you have enough to go thru this.

    I could never tell what % my battery was. I'll charge it from like 15% and it'll jump to 80% if I turn it off and then turn the phone back on.
