Man, Ive really screwed up now... I didn't back up the stock ROM, tried to root her phone using the HTC Sync method described here.

I successfully unlocked the bootloader and rooted, but still have S-ON. I have HBOOT ver 0.98, by the way.

Then after installing a Cyanogenmod 7.2 ROM through ClockworkMod Recovery (no errors there), the phone freezes on boot at the white screen with green HTC letters.

I tried flashing another ROM (several actually), but they all do the same thing. Freeze on the white boot screen, doesn't matter how long I wait.

So in an effort to get it back to stock, I tried flashing a stock RUU through the bootloader, and I get an error "Main version is older!". Checked my version through "fastboot getvar all" and the main version on phone is 6.01.605.05, so apparently I can't flash anything less than that. The latest version RUU that I've been able to find for download is 5.10.605.9.

Im fairly new to this, but I don't think I can use ADB commands without booting into the OS, is that right?

So in short:
-unable to boot to OS
-can't find a custom ROM that will boot
-can't use ADB commands to downgrade HBOOT or get S-OFF (or can I somehow?)
-can't flash an RUU because my phones version registering higher than anything I can find on the net

So does anyone have any ideas?

I go the same exact problem. Did all the steps, had the bootloader unlocked. Boots to a white HTC screen now and that is all I get. I would LOVE some help on this one too.

Well it doesn't seem like anyone is coming to our rescue here. There might not be anything to be done anyway. I've got an old Droid X in a drawer somewhere that I'll have activated for her tomorrow. I guess the DInc2 is just going to remain bricked until someone publishes a higher version RUU.

It's because htcdev unlock only allows you to flash sense roms. Cm7 is aosp.To flash a sense Rom you have to flash it in recovery first, then extract the boot.IMG and flash the boot.img in hboot. I would recommend getting full s-off instead. To get to hboot pull the battery out, put it back in and hold vol down+power. Hope this helped you
