Default Brother's Inspire 4g won't get past white HTC Screen

YES, to answer your question, I have used the search function, but seeing how things like this happen with people being irresponsible by flashing incompatible RUU's, I must ask differently.


So I had installed Taktik on my brother's Inspire 4G. He was running it without an issue since Taktiks Release 1 had been released, but this morning he called me to inform me that his phone won't get past the white HTC screen. He told me he turned the phone off and put it on the charger overnight like he usually does. When he went to turn it on the morning it would just hang at the white HTC screen and vibrate exactly 7 times before rebooting. He can get into bootloader, but he can't get into recovery because it will just hang at the white HTC screen there too. I was reading that this is more than likely a "corrupt bootloader" and I was wondering if it's salvageable.

The bootloader details are as follows:

UNLOCKED
ACE PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-2.00.0030
MICROP-0438
RADIO-26.17.14.11_M
eMMC-boot

I know it's an old phone (I am literally begging him to dump this phone for a while now) but he still wants it. How can I save this?

what about if you try to installing a custom recovery (a different custom recovery) through fastboot..?, "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"

if after installing a custom recovery...the recovery still can't accessed..
then maybe you must try to return your phone to the stock first with flashing a stock RUU..but don't forget to relocked your bootloader first "fastboot oem lock" before flashing a stock RUU..

hope this help..

I mean, he had ext4 recovery forever. Don't know why attempting to flash a new recovery would help, but I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the prompt response

If you still have access to the custom recovery, then try reflashing the rom with a clean flash. If that does not work, then relock the bootloader and then flash a RUU in fastboot.

If after flash successfully a rom the phone does not boot, then it seems that the mobo might be flaw.

I wish I could say we could get into the recovery. I'm currently away at school so I'm basically telling you what my brother is telling me. He said he is unable to get into recovery. He can get into bootloader, but whenever he clicks on recovery, it just goes to the white HTC screen and vibrates 7 times, shuts off, then reboots

umm....the vibrating and the rebooting sounds like a burned mobo to me....sorry about that.

Hmmm bummer, but I'm not surprised. He got the phone in 2011 and the phone is still in surprisingly good condition. We've been telling him to get a new one forever, but 200 is a lot to spend on a phone (He's wants the HTC One). I'll break the news to him. Thankfully the sd card can be removed :P

Sounds stupid, but I would try another battery just in case like last resort.
