Default [Q] One bricked when attempting a return to stock

Hello there everyone, sorry to add another 'bricked' thread to the first page but it seems the more I try to fix my phone on my own, the deeper the hole I'm digging becomes.

About a week ago I installed Cyanogenmod via their installer. It was nice and straightforward but I soon began to miss Sense 5.5 so I set out to return my phone to stock. This was a few days ago and since then I have learned about flashing, rooting, fastboot etc., but I am now stuck where I cannot make it past the Cyanogenmod logo and I have absolutely no idea where to start fixing things. I can't make any progress as I do not have USB debugging mode enabled (nor can I enable it now) and I have no backup other than the automatic backup to Dropbox.

Below is my getvar output. Phone is 'TAMPERED' and 'UNLOCKED'. Oh, the phone is not rooted and was bought in Hong Kong but I use o2 in England. Please let me know If there is any more information I need to include.

I'm no expert, but maybe this can help.


Here's what I did with mine when I thought I bricked it. Keep in mind that I had a micro-USB to USB OTG cable. (costs less than $5)
Mine was bootloader unlocked, s-on but with hboot 1.55 or 1.54.

1. install TWRP recovery (openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.3-m7.img) using fastboot.

2. Boot into TWRP recovery, then using OTG cable, mount a USB flash drive that has a installable zip image of the whole thing. I just used one from here:
http://android-revolution-hd.blogspo...-site-var.html
I got the "Download stock odexed 4.19.401.8" since I wanted to return it to stock like so I can return it.
I flashed it with that, and it would reboot into stock-like Android. I still had a bootloader from GoogleExperience version, and I accidentally did S-on before fixing these so I was screwed.

Anyways, that's how I got mine back to working state. After that, I couldn't get S-off (hboot 1.54) no matter what even using Rumrunner. Trying to get S-off again, I had to reflash the kernel with some other custom kernel, and then was able to do rumrunner to get s-off again. From that point, everything was easy, and I was able to reinstall real AT&T stock android using their RUU exe file. After that it installs OTA updates too.

Thanks for the info, will have to try it tomorrow after buying a cable

Unfortunately no, I wrongly assumed a simple backup would have sufficed in the event anything went wrong. Never again. Oops, that for the heads up on that
