Hi Guys.

I have a Problem with my HTC One S (ville).
*** TAMPERED ***
*** UNLOCKED ***
VLE PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT 2-15.000
RADIO 1.11.50.05.28


After using the "unofficial" HTC Stock Rom 4.1 with root (Which works sometimes and sometimes not, dont ask me why...), i decided to upgrade.

First I tried Liberty Rom, but after installing my phone was in endless start loop.
So i tried CM (every Version i could find), but after flashing it hang at the HTC Start screen (The One with the Red text).
Then I Tried Viper One S. This was the only one i could start. It runs perfect, except the random reboots. Sometimes every 2 min, sometimes no reboot in one day.

I tried it with TWRP 2.6 and 2.7 and CWM and erverytime the same results: no running OS or a "rebooting-party-OS".
I installed everything with an USB drive connected to the phone via cable.

I tried to get HBOOT 2.16, didnt work.
I tried flashing via ADB, doesnt work. My Computer (win 7) doesnt find the devices.
I tried S-Off, but doesnt work because of ADB-Problem...

I read almost every thread here, but nothing helped...

The Backup of my HTC stock, doesn work. When I restore it, it starts and i have a black screen with only the notification bar and nothing works.

Going back to the orignial RUU's doesnt work. Trying to flash the zip gives me an error, and when i start the .exe the program doesnt find my phone.


So i decided to ask you guys, cause you know everything

By any chance, AFTER you flashed any of the above ROMs, have you also flashed boot.img of that ROM (kernel) separately from fastboot? Based on what you say, you have no working ADB so I could guess fastboot isn't working either, but I want confirmation. According to the symptoms, it looks like you have not flashed/have the proper kernel for the ROM...

Hey.
No I just flashed the installing .zip of the ROMs. Should I do that and yes, how does it go ?

When i connect my phone via USB with my PC (in Bootloader) it says fsatboot USB and i installed with that way TWRP and CWM Recovery...

It seems that even you read every thread, you missed some important things. First remember: if you're S-On, you MUST flash EVERY time after a ROM flash the corresponding kernel. Or else ROM won't boot. There are threads in which this is discussed but I'll summarize the steps:

1. Open (on your PC) the ROM zip and find inside the file called boot.img. Usually you'll find it in /system. If there are ROMs made for both 2.15 and 2.16 hboot (I know only one that's Liberty Max), it could be that the file is located in a /boot folder in the zip and the file name contains 2.15 or 2.16 to know for which hboot it is...for you it is the one having 2.15 in the name.

2. Copy the ROM zip onto your phone, enter recovery and flash it. I won't detail this step since you should know how to do it but I'll draw your attention upon one thing....BE SURE you have the correct recovery for the ROM you want to flash. That is, for most (or all) 2.15 ROMs you could flash the latest official TWRP 2.7.1.0 from HERE and for 2.16 ROMs you should flash the recovery recommended in that particular ROM thread

3. Having the boot.img file ready and copied on your PC in the location of ADB and fastboot (usualy where Android SDK is installed, in the platform-tools folder), first check that fastboot is working. To do that, after you flashed the ROM, reboot in fastboot mode (bootloader) from recovery and having phone connected on USB as you said before, open a command prompt in the ADB folder and issue the command: fastboot devices. You should get a result containing the S/N of your device...if you get an empty response, that means fastboot doesn't recognize your device. I am almost sure that it does tho, since you said you flashed this way the recovery (you couldn't do it otherwise)

4. Having fastboot working and boot.img in the same folder, issue the following command: fastboot flash boot boot.img

5. Reboot the device, the ROM should boot up and work
