OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-6.09.401.5
eMMC-BOOT 2048MB

Phone reboots on HTC logo over and over again. I can access bootloader menu - this what I see. And that's it, no rom, no recovery. Is it totally dead?
There is no recovery available right now if tried - phone says entering recovery - and goes to reboot loop.

All guides or posts state that you need to upload RUU - must be S-off. To S-off you need active bootloader or ROM/Recovery.
Any other solutions or maybe some had same issue?

Have you tried flashing a recovery img and from there flashing a ROM? No need of S-Off for that.

I'm attempting to s-off my device and I'm on Hboot 1.57. I understand that the July way to do this is with sunshine. That requires your stock rom. If i do not have my stock rom (and mine isn't available to download), are there any options available to get s-off?

I've looked at some close roms but could find any that I was sure about using.

Any suggestions?
