    DNA Bricked

    This is my third android phone and I'm finally stumped. I got my Droid DNA yesterday and rooted and unlocked it right away. I even had genome running on it but then I accidentally wiped.... EVERYTHING. So now I have a rooted, unlocked phone without a rom installed or even in .zip form in the memory. I have tried sideloading the rom using adb and twrp, as well as pushing a rom to the phone. I'm a little out of my depth here, but I can get fastboot on my computer to recognize the phone, just not adb while in twrp recovery.

    Any advice on how to make this happen would be appreciated. I miss my droid x and og droid where I could just take the sd card out and load the rom manually...

    Re: DNA Bricked

    Is there a RUU for the DNA yet?

    I lightly searched for it earlier and it was at least difficult to find. Wouldn't I still have to access my phone through my computer anyways and have the same problem?

    EDIT: I just found a decrypted stock ROM for the DNA (http://www.teambamf.net/topic/4637-r...m-1156054-ruu/) - which is what I assume the RUU is?

    Re: DNA Bricked

    Possibly, but you'll definitely want to do some reading first. The RUU files can work through hboot (basically the bootloader on HTC devices). But read a lot, I'm not familiar with the DNA, but I've done a lot to a lot of previous HTC devices, and as long as you had a hboot compatible with the RUU, and you could get into hboot, you could run the RUU. It's an exe file you run from your computer, and it requires fastboot, so it's a good start that your computer recognizes that.

    Re: DNA Bricked

    Is there a clockwork recovery for the DNA? Because maybe it'll be more friendly about letting you side load a zip... Just a thought, as that would obviously be the easiest fix. And you could flash the recovery in hboot.

    I have already tried clockwork, but its worth a shot again. I found this: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/htc...n-htc-dna.html
    it claims to have a download link to the RUU, but it is less than 200kb and not an executable like is stated in the guide. I have also found this file referenced on another guide. Is this as confusing as it seems?

    Also, does anyone know how to mount the internal memory through bootloader or recovery for a device without a removable sd card? That alone would fix my problem.

    Re: DNA Bricked

    Yeah a file of that size won't do what you need... hmm...

    There's gotta be a way to sideload...

    I can't believe adb still won't work... I must be doing something stupid . I can't believe there's no way to mount the internal storage as a drive on my computer!!!

    No, I haven't yet. I just had a breakthrough now though! I can access adb now only if I have the RUU program up with the pdanet drivers. I sideloaded the rom and it appeared to work, but would only boot to recovery, then I used the push command to install the rom manually - same thing.

    This is a ROM which ran no problems after the first install yesterday. I at least am now hopeful this is a small problem.

    EDIT: What caused this problem in the first place exactly was me selecting the wipe menu in TWRP and wiping both system and internal storage (I don't know why either) so maybe I need More than just a ROM install to get everything back that I deleted? There is still one option left in that menu that I haven't used called format data. Maybe that will reformat the memory so I could sideload again and have it work this time?
