Did you make a nandroid backup before u flashed viper one? If u did enter recovery by rebooting holding down vol down and restore your backup. Or flash your carriers stock firmware. Check the back to stock thread for info on that.

If that doesn't work it's a hardware issue and you should check your warranty and get a replacement.

Thank you guys for the help and for everyone coming together to come up with solution it is deeply appropriated my M8 was finally able to boot it up I plugged phone on the charger and directly to the power outlet on the wall and hold the volume up + volume down + power bottom all 3 keys at same time for 20 minutes and released all key at the same and left phone on charger over night for 24hrs and phone was able to boot up

I think you only need to hold Vol Up + Power for a few seconds and it should reboot.
Mine did the same thing once and that's how I got it to restart.

True. Power + Vol Up is a reboot, basically a simulated battery pull (for phones that have a removable battery.

Power + Vol Down boots into bootloader.

Power + Vol Up + Vol Down is not any button combo on this device, that I know of. This is perhaps a button combo for another device? Care should be taken to only do known button combos. Although I don't think there is any "harmful" button combo on the M8; on my old One X (EVITA) folks would mistakenly do Power + Vol Up to go into bootloader (correct combo is Power+ Vol down) which erased the ROM and sent the phone into Qualcomm download mode, which would probably give you a heart attack!
Please click the "Thanks" button if you found a post helpful!
