Hey Folks!

Yesterday, I wanted to install CM11 on the HTC Sensation of a friend.

This is what I did to the phone:
  • Unlocked bootloader using the Juopunutbear method (since HTCdev unlock was not possible)
  • Installed TWRP 1.7.0.0 recovery using fastboot
  • Did a factory reset using TWRP

At this point, the phone worked well, but the SD-Card could not be formatted anymore (maybe dead ..).

So I put CM11 + GApps on another SD-Card and booted into recovery.
  • Wiping (factory reset) froze formatting data, pulled battery
  • Installing zip froze, pulled battery

As I turned the phone on again, it only showed the HTC logo and warning symbols in the corners.

To get the phone working again, I tried to restore the stock software:
  • Flashing RUU the normal way - restore freezes
  • Extracting rom.zip from RUU and flashing zip with fastboot - restore freeze (dzdata)
  • Putting rom.zip as PG58IMG.zip on SD-Card and flashing using bootloader - restore freezes (userdata)

Any Ideas?

Best regards,
Simon

Can you still flash Recovery's? If you can try flashing 4ext recovery by madmaxx and then factory reset the device from there .

Thank you, for your reply!
Okay, I was able to flash 4EXT Recovery thorugh fastboot (fastboot oem rebootRUU).

It doesn't freeze formatting /data, but it fails:

Again, when I'm trying to restore from RUU its freezing on this screen:
