Ok guys,

I have recently had a bootloop, that was deemed "unrecoverable" by HTC

Ok, so first things first,
YOU NEED TWRP!
*i dont know what it is, but the commands only seem to work on twrp in different situations*
no. 2,
This android revolution ROM http://www.mediafire.[com]/download/58f2vid3okfonn7/Android_Revolution_HD-One_X+_8.0.zip
*part of the reason for my bootloop (apart from wiping the os) was a low hboot (1.35) and this works with 1.29+*
all drivers, and CWM universal drivers (dont ask how this helps, it just does

OPTIONAL STEPS
wipe userdata, cache, dlavik cache and system

REQUIRED STEPS
put the rom in the same folder as adb fastboot
extract the boot image (if s-on)
open a text document
type:
adb push Andriod_Revolution_HD-One_X+_8.0.zip /sdcard/
pause
Now save it as a batch file
boot into twrp
mount all the options (system, data, cache)
open file manager *in advanced menu*
mess around for a bit looking at different files
do a advanced wipe, (with data, cache and dalvik cache
go back to the menu
Run the batch
(The reason for this is that you dont have to retype if it fails)
if it doesnt work, restart recovery, unplug, plug back in
keep trying.
when it takes a long time to say anything in CMD, it has worked.
Leave it to complete
Go to install zip from sdcard
select the ROM
install it.
just choose whatever install options.
now, DO NOT SELECT REBOOT! PRESS BACK!
REBOOT INTO BOOTLOADER
go into usb fastboot
make sure it dont say "battery level too low to flash." if it does, leave it to charge
OK, hard part over
TIME TO FINISH THIS UP!
Now you may be thinking, o, this is just "fastboot boot boot.img
but its not, you MUST use "fastboot flash boot boot.img" (dont ask why either)
select reboot system.
It takes 1-20 mins to boot first time, so be patient.

TAADAA!

You have successfully un-bootlooped your htc one x+

i dont ask for donations, just a thanks

couple of things

you don't need any batch files

you can cut it down by this

full wipe

adb sideload

reboot bootloader and flash the boot.img

fastboot boot boot.img = not flashing the boot.img it just loads it for testing

fastboot flash boot boot.img = actually flashing it to the device and sticks until you change it

*super face palm *
Not sure if you're serious or just trolling..
Fixing it is simple, you made it sound so complicated.
And just like Lloir said, you don't need batch files. And you don't even need AndroidRevolutionHD, you can do it with any ROM... And you don't really NEED TWRP, you can use the command on any recovery with adb.

This is what worked for me, it only worked in tarp and adb sideload came up with error device not found, and the batches make it easier to do again if it fails first attempt. This is for ANY brick. That includes when things like sideload do t work, or there are no backups and whatnot.

Adb sideload didn't work, that's what I'm saying, and thanksabout the boot image flashing and stuff, I didn't know that! But the batch files are so if it fails first attempt, it's easy to retry, and you don't have to type the long commands into cmd

Adb sideload device not found is either because of missing drivers on your computer, or you didn't choose the sideload option from recovery.
Note that sometimes it takes more than 3 minutes for the device to appear in sideload mode so you should have waited.
And what we said works for any brick too the one X+ is S-On for most people which makes it really hard to completely hard brick the phone . It's nearly impossible. (unless you get a dead SDCard or CPU or any other think like what happened in my case.) other than that, fixing a soft brick on it should take less than 10 minutes.

Also, you don't need to keep rewriting the commands. You can use the up and down arrows to scroll between commands history and use previously used ones.
