Last night I was flashing to a new rom.

The phone has had beanstalk 4.4+ on it for quite some time and have never had any issues really.

I was going to give viper 6.1 a shot so I downloaded the zip and put it on my sd card

I rebooted the phone into recovery as I do every time I load a rom and selected wipe to install nee rom option in twrp.

I chose the zip and aroma fired up and installed the new rom and gave me a successful install message and asked to reboot the phone which I did.

Now when I boot the phone it goes straight to the bootloader/fastboot screen and will not perform any functions other than reboot, which it does and goes straight to the bootloader.

pleaseeee help I hope I didn't kill it somehow. It seemed everything was going fine...

Thanks in advance

Jay

... TWRP is the best recovery to flash Viper. If you didnt use that, flash the right TWRP for your variant in fastboot (Sprint in your case and no other), boot into recovery, wipe everything in recovery, run Viper installer, choose wipe all (except SD) and then see if it wakes from the sleep ...

try to run a RUU... it will fix all the problems... i had the same problem on my sprint htc one few weeks ago it didnt have a rom in it, only thing it could do was going into bootloader and TWRP... after RUU no problems...root again and install custom rom of your choice...

do i need to install a rom after the RUU? reason I ask is I ran it and everything went smoothly but the phone wont boot now it shows the htc screen and then goes black. the phone is not turning off but it is crashing it seems.

I have relocked my bootloader and successfully have the latest twrp back on the phone

there is no need to put a rom as long as you are satisfied with stock rom.... how did you run the ruu .exe file or by fastboot mode???
