So here's why I'm posting:
I'm having an issue with my M8 phone. The phone was working great until I tried to install a new third-party TWRP. I don't know if it was miscommunication or what, but in the process of installing it (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ocvavpttfo...ersion_Fix.img), the phone started having issues.
The initial issue was that the phone would get stuck during boot up. The phone was at the current 2.22 build # but in order to make it at least usable again, I flashed an RUU (1.57 build #) and that seemed to fix everything. But then when I went back from stock recovery to my original TWRP, and flashed a recent backup, the phone froze again during boot up. This process worked many times and as recently as yesterday, but now since trying to install that third-party TWRP, it doesn't. I've tried various things but nothing is working. I know that since I can still reach HBOOT and TWRP that there is hope, but I'm at my wits end as to what to do.
I should also mention that I was using the ViperOne M8 ROM (2.1.0). My phone is unlocked/rooted & S-OFF. There were no issues with it again until I tried to install that new TWRP.
I really love my phone, and hope someone on here can help me. After re-RUUing my phone, I'm going to leave it at 1.57 build # and stock recovery (1.12 #) (and USB Debugging on) until I hear from someone. Basically, I just want my phone to be normal again so I can upgrade back to build # 2.22, flash my custom TWRP recovery, and then flash my most recent backup which included the most recent ViperOne M8 update.
