Please help! I cannot reboot and tried all the normal methods
I've had my One for about 4 months and I've flashed about a dozen Sense and AOSP/CM11 roms on it before recently settling into using MultiROM w/ViperOne w/hardexec kernel as my primary and TripNDroid 17 w/teamSeven kernel w/smartmax_eps governor as my secondary. I've been running the latter most frequently. Anyway, after about a week of running it I have had a few weird issues where it works fine for a day or two and then I can't get the screen on and I have to force reboot with VOL DOWN+POWER. That has worked fine. Last night I was on a flight and when I landed and took the phone out of airplane mode I had signal but no data, so I told it to soft-boot (I do that often, so I don't have to wait for MultiROM), saw the Google splash as expected, and then I put it in my pocket. When I pulled it out 20 minutes later expecting my desktop it was black.
VOL DOWN+POWER for 20-30 seconds causes the key lights to blink as usual, but it never reboots. I plugged it into my PC and though I get the exclamation next to HTC One or MTP device in device manager I can get a response from adb devices so I issues adb reboot which did nothing. Nor did adb reboot recovery. I can adb shell into it and I have root prompt, but issuing a reboot command there also just seems to cause it to hang on the command.
I don't know whether to let it sit now and run the battery down, charge it fully, flash a new boot.img or recovery (not even sure how I could since I can't get into fastboot), or give up and try a RUU exe. I'd really, really appreciate any help as I am traveling all week and it is much harder for me to reach my family without a cell.
Thanks so much.
