[Q] TMOUS M8 accepted GPE hboot 3.18 - Am I busted?
It's been a long and wild ride, but I think my device is toasted.. sorta.
I unlocked via HTCDev, installed TWRP, rooted. All went well.
Wanted to test GPE ROM. Downloaded and installed 4.4.3.
It had an OTA. Flashed stock recovery to apply it. BAD MOVE!
Ever since, my white hboot is now black, says version 3.18. This is the GPE hboot.
Trying to manually write a new one with dd fails obviously, read only.
RUU fails, saying error 159 (Wrong RUU for this device. It isnt?)
RUU flashing hboot, "unknown error 99" - assuming because S-On.
Firewater s-off FAILED before this happened, because my device just wasn't compatible with it.
Now running the GPE hboot I tried it again, and it just force closes and kicks me back to a terminal after typing in "Yes"
Only AOSP based ROMs are booting now.
TWRP (Multiple versions) as well as PhilZ CWM both fail on most other roms with "set_perm: some changes failed"
And then kick me to a 2-3 bootloop back into recovery.
What are my options? Thanks guys.
