greetings

i have some weird problem on m7_u
sometimes when i restart my device it stays on bootsplash for considerable amount of time and sometimes it sticks there and i have to press POWER button until button backlight blinks and then it goes into boot or recovery
this happens in TWRP too, it stays on TWRP logo and i have to press POWER button to until buttons blink, and also when i flash something it stays on some parts like "formatting system" or "updating partitions" and again have to press POWER
this has happened earlier but now i'm facing it frequently
this is getting me worried
i'm using crushalots' dark bootloader, is it because of dark bootloader?
using TWRP 2.6.3.4 (2.6.3.3 doesn't suit me, screen goes blank occasionally)
what should i do?
should i update my hboot to 1.55 or 1.56?

my modelid is the same, my CID was HTC__J15

Start fresh.. Run the last available RUU, and see if the problem happens unmodified?

I think because of the unknown cause of this problem.. troubleshoot...

try a stock RUU as the other user suggested... I used this troubleshooting once too and I had to realize that I had a hardware issuse...

I was almost the same problem as yours..
So try RUU if problems persists, go back to stock and send it in for warranty... sorry.. there's no other possibility

if problem isn't there, start modifying part for part of your software... and so you can find out what causes this issuse. then just replace it with stock software.. and the problem should be gone..

here you can really only troubleshoot...
