Any time I try to flash a rom that is sense based my phone instead of booting like a normal phone it boots to the HTC screen then restarts and boots into TWRP. Anyone know of a fix? I tried to wipe system, data, cache and dalvik cache but nothing works.

EDIT: When I try to install the stock rom it says some symlinks failed and error executing updater binary in zip

are you using a GPE phone if you are the partitions are a bit different and you have to go through the process of converting your phone.

It is from ATT, it had sense stock but I accidentally formatted the entire phone now my hboot screen looks different. it is black with a droid in the middle instead of white with the droids on skateboards. and the splash screen has a small black unlocked lock at the bottom instead of the normal htc splash.

What did you do to "format" it?

I think you installed a GPE firmware, you'll need to find a rolled up (rather than an OTA) Sense firmware for your device. I take it you're S-Off?

I don't know what's going on. Unless I'm mistaken, that sounds like the GPE boot screen, which you could only flash if you're S-Off.

I can flash GPE roms fine.

My point is that as far as I know, the splash screen is in the firmware. You would need to be S-Off to flash that firmware. Anyway, I can't help.

If that is in fact the GPEboot splash (I'm not that familiar with GPE) you should still be able to get into bootloader, you might just be doing the button combo wrong. Nothing you wiped affects hboot; nor can it be overwritten with s-on (aside from a signed hboot for your version).

Hold down the Power and vol up button to force the phone to reboot. The moment the screen goes dark, let go of vol up, and hold vol down until you see the hboot screen. If you see any screen but the white hboot screen, you probably just pressed vol down too late, or let go of it too early.

Or adb reboot bootloader.
