Need more information.
Are you unlocked, S-on or S-off?
Is the device rooted?

Hard to help with the information at hand.


If you can boot into android, go to play store, download GOO.Manager and "install open recovery script." That should get you a working TWRP recovery.

Check in bootloader, See if you're still Unlocked S-off.

If so you can re-install a recovery.

i now have the tampered flag and showing re-locked...but it was showing re-locked when i last had a successful recovery/rom running

is my bootloader in fact re-locked ( im guessing the reason i keep getting remote not allowed)
i cant seem to find an unlock method that will work... HTCDEV = no good / cant run apk for obvious reasons ( cant boot my baby lol)

Well there's your problem.
Might want to ask someone here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2293919
Or, over in the Rumrunnner thread.

Might be a simple command in adb to re-unlock, not sure.

We are out of my realm of knowledge at this point. Sorry I can''t be of more help. Good luck, I hope you get it figured out.

If you are re-locked you will not be able to do anything.

That's where you gotta start. I think thayl0 may be right. Try re-running Rumrunner.

Once you are unlocked, then you will able to install a recovery+++
