Hate to cry wolf on having a "bricked phone" but I've exhausted every trick I know yet cannot get my phone responsive, so I need some help.
I was experiencing random reboots fairly frequently regardless of ROM, firmware, clean wipe, new sim, new SD, etc. After some research, it turns out that it is probably a battery issue. I ended up trying to restore the phone via a RUU and halfway through it stopped, becoming unresponsive and after waiting 8 hours for what should take 10 minutes I hesitantly pulled the battery/usb-cable and shut the phone off.
Since then, I cannot get the phone to respond at all, merely displaying the black HTC screen with a triangle-exclamation mark in each corner and no interaction. If i plug the phone into my computer and unplug it I do get a recovery-ish looking white screen but it only has the one listed option "RUU" and I cannot interact with it.
If I try and reflash the RUU (i've tried several different ones) it will get to the same place 46% (on one RUU 36%) but stop seemingly indefinitely while the loading screen continues to flicker.
via ADB I cannot get the device recognized, but fastboot does see it under devices. I just cannot interact, getting messages like:
>adb devices List of devices attached[/font] >fastboot devices SH168T508344 fastboot >fastboot -w erasing 'userdata'... FAILED (remote: not allowed)I've since looked at the Sensation Unbricking Project but am not sure it applies since my phone is still S-OFF. I tried anyway and cannot get GPST to recognize the device via any port.
- T-Mobile US Sensation 4G
- No Recovery
- It is also Super-CID if that matters at all (cid = 11111111)
