    todays ota broke my phone

    i originally posted this, asking for help in the general discussion area, but my thread was merged into another, where everyone is talking about how happy they are with todays ota.

    me? not so happy. i need some help, and maybe i can find it here, unless my post gets diverted again.....

    hi, i'm new here....been lurking awhile but this is my first post.

    so earlier today i did the ota. my phone got really hot and rebooted itself 7 times, until eventually i removed the battery and let it chill a bit. i noticed that it changed my wallpaper back to the stock live wallpaper, and NOTHING works but the dialer.

    everything either force closes, or briefly flickers on, then back to my home page.

    my browser wont work, i cant do updates from market, because it either fc's or shows the grey line when something is downloading, but it just stays grey. i can open my email app, and see the list, but when i touch the individual emails, it flicks on and then back to the list.

    the vast majority of the apps and other components do not work now. they force close or click back to my home page. i have no idea what to do and everyone else seems very happy with the update.

    my friend also got the ota and although hers rebooted itself a couple times, it's working fine.

    help?

    my wallpaper was a live wallpaper called shake em up. it was hilarious! but now it's gone from my phone, the download list, and my friend cant even find it in the market. what gives?

    Try removing the battery if you have not already done so. MIne got locked on the triangle, and responded to nothing. the battery reset worked.

    I've tried everything. Battery removal, hard reset...my only option is to send it in for repairs. It just really sucks that it was an UPDATE that destroyed my screen as opposed to me dropping it or something.

    Calling HTC will be your best bet...especially since you already did a factory reset. Good luck.

    I got mine last night. But didn't mess with my phone until this morning. The only problem I noticed, was trying to access the market. It kept FCing but after a couple trust it finally worked and has been working flawlessly ever since.
    What's this update even supposed to do?
