Default HELP! Is my phone completely bricked ?

Ok so yesterday I installed Viper One S 3.1.2 on my phone ( HTC One S - S4 of course ), first it worked perfectly and flawless then i rebooted my phone into recovery to install the wifi fix and camera sense 5 mod v0.2. After that, i reboot my phone again, and it did had the logo of htc and viper team, but when it booted completely, it only has the status bar and a black screen and then it rebooted itself after 15-20s and then stucked into a bootloop. Sometimes it boots as normal as it did before i installed those mods, i tried to hold the power button to choose the "boot in to bootloader" option but it didnt even appeared the power option So right now i can't not boot my phone into bootloader ( even by holding volume down and power button ) and recovery, It reboots itself so fast that my computer can't recognize it to run the RUU Is my phone completely bricked ?

Recovery TWRP 2.5 ?
Hboot 1.14
Radio < 1.20

I don't remember those information much so i'm sorry

Is your phone "S-OFF"?

You need HBoot 2.16 for radio 1.20. Otherwise HBoot 2.15 is recommended.

Turn your phone off by pressing Power for 10 seconds. Then press "Vol down and power" to enter bootloader.

BTW how about first READ whats required before installing a rom...
HTC One S @ PAC-man 4.4.2 [ALPHA1] [12/5/2014] + IceCode Kernel v4.0 // HBoot 2.15 - unlocked BL - S-OFF - NO "tampered & warning text" // TWRP mod 2.7.0.8

Samsung Galaxy W @ ParanoidAndroid 4.3 [BETA3] [6/5/2014] + KhaN Kernel v2.0 // Base: I8150XXLMI // PhilZ CWM 6.01.4

"REVIVED" HTC Wildfire S @ CyanogenMod 11(AWESOME!!!) [6/5/2014] //HBoot 1.09 - unlocked BL // TWRP 2.7.0.0


It won't hurt you to press "thanks" if me or someone other helped you...

First and biggest mistake was to flash a mod that was not certified to work with Viper. In all the Viper threads (the old 2.x and the new 3.x one), it is stated NOT to flash any mod cause it might break the ROM. There are files replaced and those in Viper are tweaked by the Viper Dev team to work with Venom HUB and the themes and tweaks there. Mods usually replace framework-res.apk and if this happens you could have a non working ROM if the new framework-res file is not compatible with the rest of the ROM.

Follow the steps indicated by LS.xD to enter bootloader again. There's no reason for which you could not boot to bootloader again. Disconnect any power from phone, keep the power button hold for about 12-15 secs until you're sure phone is powered off (eventually you'll notice a faint flash on screen when it's turning off). Then hold vol-down and keep it presed while you press and hold power button for 2-3 secs. Continue to keep pressed the vol-down until the bootloader screen appears. Then go to recovery and reflash the ROM. Since you're on hboot 1.14, if you're not S-Off (you didn't mentioned anything about this), you should flash the kernel in fastboot. If you're S-Off you won't need this. Basically you should follow again the exact steps you followed first time when you flashed the ROM

And don't flash any mods again
Don't force it...use a bigger hammer!

Tried Power off manually by pressing "power" for 10+ seconds? When phone turns off immediately release power and press "vol down + power"
