Default [Q] Stock on fastboot, unable to enter into recovery

Hi, I am a noobie.

I rooted my device with no problem and have been flashing roms for a while now. Never encountered problems before. However, I tried to flash the new venom rom and at the end it said unable to install, after that my device restarted and it appears to be stuck.

I can enter fastboot (or at least I belive so), however my computer is not recognizing my divice. If I try to enter into recovery it just keeps restarting, with no luck. (I did my back as suggested, but I am unable to run it).

I am on a windows 8.1 machine.

The status on my htc one is:

Tampered
Unlocked
m7_UL PVT Ship S-ON RH
HBOOT-1.44.0000
RADIO-4A.14.3250.13
OpenDSP-v26.120.274.0202
eMMC-boot

Can anyone please help me!

you probably are using an older custom recovery, suggest TWRP
2.6.3.3: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7
or 2.6.3.4: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7ul
remember to check MD5 on the download, cause that site doesn't play well with download managers

hboot 1.44 doesnt work with Win8.1, you need to get another version XP/7/maybe 8, or linux (even Linux Live USB will do, no need to install it)

then flash above recovery:
fastboot flash recovery <name of recovery>.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootlader

-> enter recovery, and reflash the ROM

Hi, so I been trying to solve this problem by reading several guides but I have not been able to. I downloaded linux and created a USB as you suggested. Tried to flash the recovery, however ubuntu is not recognzing my device.

For example I type fastboot, then devices and it says command not found. Since I am not that familiar with ubutnu I been having a hard time trying to fix that problem, could you provide me some instructions? or a guide to fix this?

I appreciate the help, been without a phone for a while now

Have you installed adb & fastboot:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
then type adb version to make sure it's installed


and for fastboot, use: sudo fastboot ...
eg sudo fastboot devices

When installing sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 I get the following

Reading package lists... Done
W: Duplicate sources.list entry cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release amd64 (20140204)/ precise/main i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/Ubuntu%2012.04.4%20LTS%20%5fPrecise%20Pangolin%5f% 20-%20Release%20amd64%20(20140204)_dists_precise_main _binary-i386_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry cdrom://Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release amd64 (20140204)/ precise/restricted i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/Ubuntu%2012.04.4%20LTS%20%5fPrecise%20Pangolin%5f% 20-%20Release%20amd64%20(20140204)_dists_precise_rest ricted_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

I dont know if this last part is normal or not.

After that i did
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

For Adb version I get Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.31
For sudo fastboot devices I get HT34YW919952 fastboot

Then downloaded TWRP 2.6.3.4 and cheked sum5. Until here I think everything is going fine.

After that I typed fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.4-m7ul.img
However, it stays at waiting for device

Should I wait or is something wrong?

Devices is connected and on fastboot USB

Since recovery.img is my downloads folder I tried also this
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fastboot devices
HT34YW919952 fastboot
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ cd Downloads
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.4-m7ul.img
< waiting for device >


I appreciate the help, guidance and patience.

Just to make it easier for anybody who encounters a similar problem, I am resuming the action that I took as instructed by nkk71.

First create a bootable ubuntu USB (I did it with ubuntu 12.04).

Then open the terminal in ubuntu and type the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

Then type: adb version (it should say something about android bridge debug version ##)
Then tpye: sudo fastboot devices (it should say HT....)

Once the above is done and achived do the following:

Download latest TWRP (see faq #2 for links)
Check md5sum, to do this in the terminal type:
cd Downloads (or wherever you saved the twrp .img)
md5sum (name of file, including .img)
If md5sum is correct proceed to the following (if not correct download it again):

On terminal type:
cd Downloads (or wherever you saved the file)
sudo fastboot flash recovery (name of the file, including .img)
sudo fastboot erase cache
sudo fastboot reboot-bootloader

Then enter into recovery again and reflash the rom.
