Hello All,

Yesterday I tried to flash a ViperROM 3.5 onto my DNA after trying NuSense a few days back and not liking it and its bugs. When installing the ROM through the recovery AROMA installer said "Error (status 7)" Installation failed. Tried to reboot and it just keeps going straight to recovery.

Things I have tried to fix this.
Mounting SD in recovery to put a new (SD card does not mount when I click mount CWM
ADB (I would assume this isn't working because I don't have a ROM to enable USB Debugging)
Fastboot (to flash a new recovery that will allow me to mount SD will not work says waiting for devices just like adb) Although oddly enough once I plug in the USB it says "Fastboot USB" on my device.
I have tried installing every windows 8.1 fastboot and ADB driver out there, the most current one I tried is nocturnal fastboot.

I am at a loss for what I can do for my next step besides send it back to HTC or get a new phone. Please help me if you can. I feel like there has to be a way around this because I can still access recovery. Let me know if there is any info you need.

Moonshine S-OFF

Dual boot your pc with either win7 or Linux. Win 8 and 8.1 has issues with HTC phones and reading them. Best to use the aforementioned OS's to use Fastboot commands

Check this thread out for possible solutions ..

[How-To] From S-OFF to 100% Stock S-ON [Facepalm/JTAG/RevOne/Moonshine/Rumrunner]

And this one too..


And finally this one to update your phone to latest firmware...

★ ☆ [ROM/RADIO][4.4.2][Kitkat] Stock 4.09.605.1 | Rooted | Odex-Deodex | Sense5.5 | ☆ ★

You don't have to go through all the posts on the above threads just the OPs.

The basic idea is to put your phone back to stock, reroot and the go from there. Hope the above threads help. Its what I used to go from a soft brick back to cm11.
