Unhappy [Q] Need some help! Currently in a very bad situation.

Okay, I'm not sure exactly what happened, but long story short:

I flashed a rom and instead of getting a new rom on my phone, the phone rebooted into fastboot. I tried to enter recovery... no dice. Somhow my recovery uninstalled itself. So now I'm stuck with a phone with no rom installed, and no recovery installed. Frustration.

First step would be to reinstall recovery right? But when attempting to use fastboot flash command, i get stuck at <waiting for device>. I have the htc phone driver installed, and it's recognizing the phone is plugged into the pc in device manager. The phone screen even says FASTBOOT USB. I have no idea why it's not flashing. The recovery i'm trying to flash is twrp, the latest sprint build. It's the same one I had before it somehow uninstalled itself.

Please help out guys?
Thanks.

Default Details

Sorry for not making this clear earlier: the phone is the HTC One, Sprint. Just the regular one.

I'm really in a bind in here. Right now I have no recovery or rom to work with, and the only rom on my phone is the one that caused all this mess. I'm going to have to sideload a rom, but right now I need to get twrp on there. For some reason, it still won't get on, i'm still stuck at <waiting for device>. The phone is coming up on device manager as "My htc", so it's definitely plugged into the computer correctly. I have no idea what's going on.

Smells like bad usb drivers.

What does this command say:

fastboot devices

The result should be your device id. It not, your usb drivers are not working.

If it does work, I would RUU back to stock. Look at the faq page for links.

The command doesn't return anything. I guess this means my drivers aren't working. This doesn't make any sense though (pun intended): the phone is being recognized in device manager under "Android USB Devices" as "My HTC" via HTC's drivers that come with htc sync. I already downloaded htc sync and uninstalled it, keeping the driver files. This is really wierd stuff, any idea on how to get the drivers working? I'm sure if I could just get a recovery on there, resolving the issue wouldn't be too difficult via adb. Thanks.

Sounds like you are running Win 8.1.
Your phone won't be recognized if your hboot is 1.44

There it's a specific question in this in the faq page, particularly 8.1 and usb. Did you look at that?

Default Fixed! ...halfway

Alright guys, I flashed a recovery.

I actually started off with HTC's drivers, but they were causing the issue.

Thankfully the information the thread tdhite posted had a link to a working driver.

Thanks everyone! Now I need to sideload a rom.
