I have also sent an email to qualcomm but they basically told me mind my own business.
"Thank you for your interest in QCT Chipsets. Unfortunately, any information other than what can be found on our website is proprietary to Qualcomm licensees"
I sent an e-mail to HTC asking if 5 vibrations indicates a hardware failure or software issue that could be taken care of in-store at a Verizon location. Will let you know what I hear back from them.
Just spoke to HTC. They said if a factory reset didn't fix the issues, at least temporarily, you should call their warranty repair department -800-229-1235, which is open 8:30 AM- 5 PM EST M-F. Power cycling is usually a software issue, but if it's not fixed by the factory reset it falls under the jurisdiction of the warranty repair department to determine what hardware component(s) is/are involved.
thanks guys i will give em a call monday hopefully they can help. Ill let you guys know what happens.
So, when you say hardware issue, do you mean physical damage to the hardware, or hardware incompatibility with the firmware we flashed?
Mine went south over the course of a few days. The fact that it only boots when plugged in is strange as hell and screams firmware / driver to me-- though I am very inexperienced in messing with handsets. Also, the fact that the DEVICE recognized SD cards in the hboot menu, but refuses to entirely once booted also suggests to me a problem which might be fixable. Is it possible that the "restore to stock" file that I flashed was created for an earlier / unrevised version of the dinc?
"Mine went south over the course of a few days. The fact that it only boots when plugged in is strange as hell"
^^ Can you achieve this repeatedly? If so a logcat that I could pass on while trying to get it booted and failing would be so beneficial.
I'll probably give the radio update a try. If I'm going to have it replaced, I don't have much to lose. Might as well perform an autopsy.
As to the boot issue: yeah, it's 100% consistent. And I can unplug it the SECOND it reaches the "quietly brilliant" screen. I'd be happy to send a logcat over, but my dinc isn't mounting properly to the computer any more, so SDK is unable to recognize it and run the logcat.
Enlightened-- I took the phone in to a Verizon store. I got a lot of shrugs. They had no idea what was going on.
Welp on to the radios.
This is the hacked evo version http://dougpiston.com/files/Radios/P...5.00.09.01.zip
This is the version you alread have http://dougpiston.com/files/Radios/P...5.00.07.28.zip
This is the dinc_ota version that came out some time ago http://dougpiston.com/files/Radios/P...5.00.06.11.zip
That is all of them. You'll need top rename them to PB31IMG and only have one on the sd card at a time.
Though you can boot and run fine with the device plugged in???? This could led us somewhere....... I am going to assume those radios will fail but if you can boot and repeatedly boot while the phone is plugged in might wanna try and root and get the s-off. With s-off you could flash any radio you wanted. This will open so many more doors.
Not only can I run fine plugged in, I can run fine unplugged, too. I only need to BOOT while plugged in. Once the phone starts, I can use it (fairly) normally. But the phone isn't recognized right by windows any more. It lists it as "android phone", but the device never fully, functionally connects in any connection mode. So running things like unrevoked, sdk, htc sync-- not gonna happen. The phone is just never picked up by the programs.
