Hi all
I use HTC One X, but bought some time ago HTC One S, it worked fine for some time, but yesterday restarted and from that point I could not get it back neither to recovery nor ROM anymore. Phone bootloops and I can only get to fastboot.
I've unlocked the bootloader (*** UNLOCKED *** shows on top when in fastboot) and fastboot getvar all returns:
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 2.15.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 1.11.50.05.28
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 3.16.666.9
(bootloader) version-misc: PVT SHIP S-OFF
(bootloader) serialno: HT24AW408183
(bootloader) imei: 352103050022322
(bootloader) product: vle
(bootloader) platform: HBOOT-8960
(bootloader) modelid: PJ4011000
(bootloader) cidnum: 11111111
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 3695mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic
(bootloader) security: off
(bootloader) build-mode: SHIP
(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT
(bootloader) commitno-bootloader: dirty-64bedd38
(bootloader) hbootpreupdate: 11
(bootloader) gencheckpt: 0

When I flash recovery (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img and recovery.img is from here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2528113 under Recovery HBOOT 2.15 Users Only ClockworkMod 6.0.4.5), it does flash ok
sending 'recovery' (8106 KB)..
OKAY [ 1.079s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 1.856s]
finished. total time: 2.943s

but I still cannot get into recovery (phone restarts to screen with red text (for dev only...) and then restarts and bootloops.
Can anybody please help me with this?
Thanks

Hm, really strange behavior, had couple of HTC phones but never seen something like this happening.
I did run RUU (first changed cid and relocked), everything went fine (no errors), but still cannot boot. My experience so far was that if RUU runs fine, you should boot without problem. Thinking more and more that there is some hardware problem, that is causing phone to bootloop.
If anyone has any idea, I would appreciate it a lot.
Thanks

According to your first post, everything seems to be okay. Your drivers are seeing the phone, and the phone is recognizing its hardware.

Which recoveries did you try to flash? (TWRP, CWM)
And which version?
Have you tried to reroot the device and flash a recovery again since running the RUU?

From my experience with running an RUU, you should be able to boot right away. What were the steps you took (in order) before you ran the RUU?

Sorry for all the questions, trying to establish a scenario.

[EDIT] Also, I see that you got the initial recovery from the CM11 ROM page. You didn't happen to flash a ROM that is meant for HBOOT 2.16 did you? I sure hope not. That could be a possibility as to why you can not boot anything.

I've tried both. fastboot flash recovery imgname would work fine, but I would again finish in bootloop after restart.

TWRP_2.6.1.0_ville_4.2.2 and latest CWM

You mean reunlock, not reroot, right? I've done reunlock so I could flash recovery.

I would run:
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader
and then start RUU.

You are welcome and thanks for the help.

Hi,

Bootloop is normal for ROM geeks.
In your case, it seems your phone has issue with version of Recovery. I had this issue too and found correct Recovery @ http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/ville ....

You can give a try..
