Default [Q] M7 only boot to recovery or fast boot. Bricked?

Hey guys,


When I boot my phone it'll only give me the HTC splash screen. I can manage to get my phone to boot into clockwork or the bootloader but nothing else.

My phone is S-ON with USB debugging disabled. Hboot is 1.56.

Is it a lost cause?

USB debugging doesnt matter in custom recovery (CWM or TWRP), you can use one of these methods to get a ROM onto your phone, while in custom recovery:
1- OTG Cable
2- adb push <name of rom>.zip /sdcard/
3- adb sideload <name of rom>.zip

if you're going to flash a 4.4 ROM then you best use TWRP (the correct one for your phone model), and if you're going to flash a GPe ROM you need to be S-Off.

Ok so I'm using TWRP and managed to get Maximus Rom installed but now the touch screen won't respond on lock screen.

Driver compatibility maybe? The ROM seemed to install fine and I ran fastboot flash boot boot.img.

Does it have to be a OTG cable? Standard USB seems to be working fine for the most part.

Thanks

1- post a "fastboot getvar all" (excluding IMEI and s/n)

2- what version of TWRP are you using (don't say "latest" please)

3- which ROM (link please) and version number

4- did you really need to "fastboot flash boot boot.img." ? was it indicated in the thread?
