I'm running stock 4.4 on my rooted Sprint HTC One.

I've been trying out tethering apps to try to find one that works. After failing with several of them, I came to JB WiFi Tether. It also didn't work (simply prompted me to choose a tethering plan). I had read a review that suggested it might work after rebooting. It did not.

Now, I've uninstalled it, but my phone reboots itself roughly 90-120 seconds after booting, every time. I've wiped dalvik and cache in TWRP, to no effect.

What next? I'm not opposed to doing a factory reset if that will fix it.

Save all of your personal data off of the phone and do a factory reset. If that doesn't work then you may have to re-install the stock firmware and/or stock rom.

Thanks very much for the response! Should I do factory reset from the bootloader or from TWRP (is there a difference)?

Basically everything is saved since I did a backup in HTC Sync Manager very recently.

I would do it from TWRP, because it will warn you if it wiped your OS. I would use the bootloader if I was completely stock.

Thanks again! The factory reset seems to have done the job, thankfully.

I'm so glad to be back in business. Now if I could just get tethering to work.
