Default [Q] Soft bricked Sensation. Please help/

Hi there. I've somehow managed to softbrick my Sensation. It's on a permanent whitescreen/green HTC logo reboot loop.

Booting into bootloader, it says I have...

Firmware - 3.32
PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
HBOOT-1.27.110
RADIO-11.22.3504.07_M
OpenADSP-v02.6.0.2226.00.0131
eMMC-boot
Jan 13 2012.17.33.24

HBOOT

<VOL UP> to previous item
<VOL DOWN> to next item
<POWER> to select item

FASTBOOT
RECOVERY
FACTORY RESET
SIMLOCK
IMAGE CRC

The looping boot means I can't log in via ADP.

Anyone know how to dig my way out of this hole?

It's HBOOT 1.27 but I get a red triangle when going into recovery.

Was attempting and update to cm-11-20131116-Sultan-pyramid.

You need to install a custom recovery in order to flash custom roms. I recommend installing 4ext via fastboot

You use fastboot to flash the recovery.img available from the 4ext website.
