Default Boot loop, problems with recovery

Hello,

I recently unlocked my bootloader and went to install a custom rom with Clockwork Recovery. It got stuck on the HTC boot screen (using an M7), and it would not move. I hard booted the device, and it corrupted my data.

Now, when going into CWM, the device reboots. I have tried reflashing CWM to no avail, so I then tried flashing TWRP. TWRP cannot mount any partition other than system. Problematically, I cannot get adb to recognize my device when in recovery (on multiple computers) but can get fastboot to detect it.

I cannot get a new image onto my phone via usb to fix it, and I cannot use the following guide (edit, cannot post links yet) to fix my corrupted data as a result. Also, I cannot get the device to show up as mountable storage in windows (I have yet to try Linux) to transfer files to it.






What are my options here?

Update:

I was able to update my "unknown" driver to the HTC diver in windows, and now can see my phone with adb devices.

So, I tried the data corruption fix by loading mkfs.ext4 to it and running :

/tmp/mkfs.ext4 -b 4096 -O ^huge_file,^dir_nlink,^ext_attr,^resize_inode,^ext ra_isize -m 0 /dev/block/mmcblk0p37

this completed, but now I still cant mount /data/ for some reason.

this is what I get:

ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 May 10 20:12 cache
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 Jan 1 1970 data

Now what?

Hey Wulf,

Sorry I'm still at work but this happened to me once as well. You wiped the OS completely from the phone and somehow corrupted the recovery.
I resolved it by relocking the bootloader and flashing a stock RUU. After it booted stock I unlocked the bootloader again reflashed the custom rom.

By posting useless crap like this you become a douche bag, when you become a douche bag people disregard your opinion, when people disregard your opinion you become useless to a forum community, when you become useless to a forum community you get eaten by a bear. Don't get eaten by a bear, stop posting useless crap
