Default [Q] Recovery Issue.

Hello,

I have had two of the HTC ONE (M7) Sprint from when they just came out and rooted, installed TWRP 2.5.0.0 HBOOT-1.44.0000 S-OFF and no issues and just got a new phone for my son so I wanted to unlock the boot loader and install TWRP, and maybe a custom ROM later so my adventures start.

HTC ONE (M7) Sprint
HBOOT-1.56.0000
S-ON

So everything was going good got the boot loader unlocked and was following: http://qbking77.com/development/how-...al-sprint-att/

Which I have used before with no problems.

My issue is I flashed TWRP 2.5.0.0 and I believe this version does not work with Hboot 1.56 because I am not able to touch any of the buttons to do anything and then when I refresh the screen I get the padlock icon with the slider to unlock, but still no control it was like frozen only way to get it back is to hold down the power button and the vol down keys. Phone reboots and when I go into the Boot loader I get" Tampered (which I believe means that I have a custom recovery (that doesn't work...lol) then unlocked witch is the boot loader, which I believe is correct to have.

So then I when to try to just flash the newest version TWRP 2.7.0.1 and I also tried 2.6.3.0, and I kept getting the same error in CMD fastboot:

target reported max download size of 1514139648 bytes
error: cannot load 'recovery.img': No error


I thought maybe I should try to put CWM on and then I could then put back on TWRP, but when I did this I got the same error:

target reported max download size of 1514139648 bytes
error: cannot load 'recovery.img': No error


Need some help and guidance of how to get this so I can put a working custom recovery on this phone. I don't have an issue to have to go back to factory reset if that is the only way to fix this.

Thanks in Advance
Jon

You have the recovery.img in the folder you are using to open the cmd window?

Not sure if I have hidden file extentions?

Here is a screen shot of the Folder I am in when I hold down the shift key and right click the mouse and select "Open command window here"

You can see I was trying CWM this last time

Okay update I was able to get CWM v6.0.4.6 on but when it boots up into recovery I get :

ClockworkMod Recovery v6.0.4.6
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log
E: Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_install
E: Can't open /cache/recovery/last_install

If I hit Backup and Restore then backup to /sdcard I get:

SD Card space free: 0MB
There may not be enough free space to complete backup... continuing...
Backing up boot image

and then does nothing.

I then tried to flash TWRP 2.0.7.1 threw fast boot and got this error:

C:\Users\Jon\Desktop\OneDrivers_Fastboot\Fastboot> fastboot flash recovery openre
covery-twrp-2.7.0.1-m7wls.img
target reported max download size of 1514139648 bytes
error: cannot load 'openrecovery-twrp-2.7.0.1-m7wls.img': No error


Hope this helps
Jon
