So my htc one has been a piece of a useless aluminum for the past 4 months when I lost access to recovery.
I have a windows 8.1 computer and no USB 3.0
My htc one does not boot it stays stuck on the htc logo until battery drains. I used to have a recovery image that I was able to access but now every time I try to reboot to recovery it snaps out of it and it reboots again. I CAN go to the bootloader but my computer won't communicate with the device so I can flash a new recovery.
Please ask me if I was unclear about anything but most of all, I need your professional advise please.
I want my htc to come back to life

I used the Driver Hack here .. i have no problems with adb/fastboot on windows 8.1

here's the file and instructions

HTML Code:

I repeat this is a REALLY DIRTY solution that may harm your system, personal data, hardware and/or cat.
Here are the steps:
0. Have a Linux or Windows LiveCD just in case something goes wrong
1. Download and extract files from attachment
2. Navigate to the folder corresponding to your system version (x86 = 32-bit, x64 = 64 bit)
3. Right-click franken-usb.bat and click "Run as Administrator"
5. Wait for it to finish and reboot the system. If everything went fine, you will boot your system successfully
6. Install ADB/Fastboot drivers just like on Windows 8
7. Connect your phone in Fastboot mode to your USB 2.0 port and check if it works
8. Enjoy and wait for official fix

How does it work:
It's not any kind of magic - it just replaces Windows 8.1's usbhub.sys and usbport.sys with Windows 8's ones.
Old files don't check for BOS descriptor so Fastboot can work.

Script updated - it should now actually copy the files but please double check if files were copied to C:\Windows\system32\Drivers!

Hope it helps you!

Regards!
