I tried to turn on my phone and it goes straight to the bootloader. Its not in a boot loop. but in the bootloader (*** unlocked ***) at the top. Choosing factory reset and recovery only brings me back to the bootloader. Fastboot doesn't recognize the USB. Need help.

if you don't care about your data, just run the RUU.exe for you device, but make sure you install the drivers from HTC first.

Do you have a custom recovery installed? Can you use fastboot?

fastboot says "fastboot usb" but Adb devices and fastboot devices show nothing. whats happening is that even if i choose to power down in the fastboot menu on the phone, it will boot back up on its own, into the bootloader. I am able to boot to the OS if i am lucky by hard powering off (holding the power button), then letting go of the power button, and at a precise moment pressing the power button.

I've had the same problem, what i did was put my pc a few weeks back using recovery points. Then i was able to use fastboot again. After that flash a stock boot.img trough fastboot. My phone started up again.
