Default [Q] Troubleshooting, Hard Bricked?

I did a full wipe on TWRP (EVERYTHING), and now I have no OS. My phone will only reboot into the HTC logo and I can't even get into the bootloader now, or turn the screen off. It just stays on the HTC logo. When I hold volume down and power, the buttons blink, but nothing else happens.

Try keeping the power button pressed for about 10-15 seconds till the phone completely shuts off. Then try going to bootloader?
Or does your phone reboot even if the power button is pressed for a while??

answered so many times, i'll just copy/paste


Force reboot: press and hold POWER + VOLDOWN (under a bright light, not kidding!!), after about 5 seconds or so buttons should start blinking, and after 30 seconds or so, the phone will reboot, let go of POWER, but keep holding VOLDOWN to get back to bootloader.
(you may need to try 2 or 3 times to get it right)


get TWRP from:
2.6.3.3: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7
or 2.6.3.4: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7ul
(make sure MD5 is correct, that site does not play nice with download managers)

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.3-m7.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader


Code:
Select Code

Just to double-check the file is not corrupt
C:\ADB3>adb shell md5sum /sdcard/Android_Revolution_HD-One_52.0.zip

from the OP: Android Revolution HD 52.0 -- MD5 sum: 2EFF0D37FEC5789B946C43F7DA2C13BF -- ==> so all is good :)
C:\ADB3>
-> in recovery, select "install" and install the ROM
