I have a Trophy that bricked itself during updates after a factory reset.

It starts up as far as the HTC splash screen, then buzzes 7 times, and hangs there forever (until the battery dies).

I've tried a couple of tricks I found via google, but the general consensus seems to be: its poked, send it back under warranty.

Before I embark on the pain of dealing with call-centres and warranty processes, has anyone else encountered/fixed a similar issue?

Tried holding down the power button + camera button + volume up button combo?

Yup, and the up & down volume button + power button, and the Up volume + camera + power.

They all work, in that they get me to different screens, and one gives me the CRC checksum. But none of them did anything useful to fix the device.

Claim Warranty time I think.
