What do you mean you got it lying around in my closet? You don't know what you did to it in the past?

Well I think the first thing you should do is talk to your cousin and find out exactly what he did to the device, then you can report back here.

Well, one problem is that the screen is cracked.

Seriously though, the phone for some reason or other cannot load into the OS, and is stuck in bootloader. Other than that, not much else can be determined if you don't know the history of what was done.

Nope. You need to know the history of the device. There is an HTC-specific recovery utility. But running it on a device with unknown history can brick the phone permanently. Particularly since the device is definitely tampered (as shown on the first line of the screen).

Also, the phone's IMEI is personal information, and should not be posted on the internet. You should edit the photo to hide the IMEI.

Unlock your bootloader. Sometimes if you have custom installed or fragments of a custom ROM on the device it will boot directly into your bootloader. After unlocking your bootloader you can install a recovery image and sideload a ROM.

To know what needs to be done I need to know the history of the device. Odin is Samsung only, there is no HTC equivalent. Who got the phone to this point, you or your cousin? You need to find out what he's done.

Return the phone to stock and never let your brother touch any electronic device of yours again.
