I lost my system somehow. My phone turned off and reboots during starting up.

I'm only able to go to hboot (fastboot/recovery etc.) on my phone, and I'm unable to run Android system.

I have tried many possible solutions with help of #g2root on freenode:

  1. First I downloaded the stock ROM and saved it to SD card (

    • It begins to load, and I see [1]-[12] positions.
    • When I agree to install, there's "- Updating" text near to "[1] Bootloader". Nothing else happens for more than 30 minutes.
  2. Then we tried to get from official HTC Unlocker for Desire Z, saving it to the SD card.

    • This time the only list item there was "[1] Bootloader" and also "Updating" text and nothing happens.
  3. The last thing I tried was to run EXE file from HTC that is supposed to update my HBOOT.

    • It also doesn't work.

Here are my HBOOT params:

Is there anything else I can try to recover my phone?
