I have downloaded RUU RUU_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.29.405.14_Radio_32.49.00.32U_5.11.05.27_release_224699_signed Which is for a different radio. So I downloaded and did:

fastboot flash radio radio.img

and received this output:

sending 'radio' (26112 KB)...
OKAY [  4.836s]
writing 'radio'...
FAILED (remote: image update error)
finished. total time: 8.362s

according to google that means that the radio.img is corrup. I took it from the mirror of http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=687464 I have found an other radio.img which has the same version as the RUU from http://www.generalfiles.me/download/gs61d0834bh32i0/bravo.radio- but that did make the desire shake three times when it was writing the radio and then hang.

  • Thanks for sharing the story -- but what exactly is your question? – Izzy Aug 14 '13 at 12:22
  • Lol, well the radio flash failed, and because of that the ruu failed. so how to proceed to have a working htc desire again? – JP Hellemons Aug 14 '13 at 12:24
  • Ah, OK. Always good to mention the question explicitly :) As from the error message, could it be the radio.img is corrupt? You could e.g. check Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? for an alternative source. – Izzy Aug 14 '13 at 13:39
