Rogers HTC Dream with Tmobile Firmware! How to Get Rogers Back?

Hey all,
I’m really hoping someone here can help me. I’m made a royal mess of my Roger’s Dream and can’t seem to figure it out. Sorry for such a long post, but I’ve been trolling around for the last 2 days and have tried everything I can thing of.

Here’s the deal:
I tried to root my phone, and somewhere along the line ended up loading the T-Moblie Rom, instead of a Rogers rom, and lost my root access in the process. Since then the phone has updated and I am now running 1.6. I really want to get rid of the T-moblie Rom and reload it with the stock Rogers one, but I can’t seem to get make any head way.

I do have a nandroid backup of my phone but when I try to launch the BootLoader (Power and camera button), all get is multicolored screen with the following:

Sep 2 2008
Serial 10

I’ve tried reloading RC29, and several others from here, but they all end up generating “00028002 not allowed” errors.

If I try and boot in Recovery Mode, instead of getting the 3 skate boards, I get the triangle and dream picture. Any files that I try to install here tell me that they failed because the signature isn’t verified.

Is there any way to undo this mess? I’ve got access to another “virgin” phone if that’s of any help.

If you had come here and said "I am going to Root my phone, any advice"? All of the Experts here would have shouted DON'T DO IT!

Rooting programs are written by amateurs, and unfortunately you have seen the result. You have altered the firmware which is the hard written instructions for the phone to boot, much like the BIOS in a computer.

We see your problems on a weekly basis. My standard reply is "don't Root your phone unless you want a paperweight". You now own a paperweight. Buy a new phone, learn the lesson.

I have the same problem with my Rogers HTC Dream. It's been less than 30 days that I bought it so I will try exchanging it with another brand new unit to see if my unit is defective.

Phone won't Turn On!!!

If just removing the battery dont work... Remove the sim and battery then put the battery back without the sim. Try hard reset now. Tmobile wanted to send me a new phone til I figured this out. They now have this solution in their tech notes.
