Semi-bricked phone, RUU issues, please help!
So last night I flashed the gingerbread coredroid ROM and it worked fine. I just didn't really like the looks of some things, so I thought I'd change to a different ROM.
I thought about flashing the ICS Insertcoin ROM, so I flashed it, and it kept trying to boot, but turned off and kept repeating. But then I read that I was supposed to update the firmware, so I took out the SIM card and connected it to the computer and copied the 3.24 RUU to the SD card.
I followed the instructions and the RUU set up properly through HBoot the first time. Then i went in to recovery to wipe data. It had to reboot the phone before I did anything else, and it went back into HBOOT and tried to install the RUU again, but this time it failed due to CID being incorrect! I didn't give it a second thought, but then the insertcoin ROM was doing the same thing, going through the boot up images and shutting off right in the middle, and repeating.
I tried another ICS ROM, Android Revolution, and same result. Failed booting. Then I tried restoring my nandroid backup from before coredroid, and it also kept trying to boot and then shut down. Then I tried coredroid again, and it had the same reaction, failed booting! I redownloaded the ICS RUU 4 times and repeated this process 4 different times, even with other GB versions of insertcoin and ARHD, and no dice!
I'm not entirely tech savvy, so maybe there is soemthing I havent covered yet. Now the RUU fails not because of CID, but because of incorrect Model ID. I read about goldcards, but I can't make a new one because the phone won't even boot! Please help me!
