    To check for s-off you have to turn the phone off hold vol Dow and press the power button. You should only have s-off if it is rooted, and the boot loader unlocked.

    Oh ok what root method did you use? If you flashed a bad ruu your probobly bricked. Pm me please with more specific things. And always do these things on a 100% battery so charge it until the led turns green.

    I now have the same problem. I got a refurb'ed HTC Inspire 4G 1.5 years ago - it now does the seven vibrations dance at startup. Can't get into anything, not HBOOT, nothing. Tried leaving my battery out for a few days, tried the 'hold power button for 20 seconds then wait 20 minutes" .. nothing.

    Any advice?

    Mine is doing the same thing & has been for over a month now. It vibrates 7x really fast when you try to turn it on or if you plug it in, but will only do it once until you remove & replace the battery. I have 3 batteries & it does the same thing regardless of which battery I use. I have tried leaving the battery out for days. I have tried holding the "Power" button & the "Volume Down" button for over a minute, but absolutely nothing happens after it vibrates 7 times.
    It's ridiculous how many owners of the HTC Inspire 4G/Desire HD (and who knows how many other HTC phones) that it seems have just been left stuck with a useless smartphone because of this happening & it really makes question the quality of HTC products. That being said, I highly doubt I will go with another HTC product next time . . .
