So you've tried doing a factory reset, and afterwards it still just gets stuck during boot? And do you mean it boots back to the HTC boot screen after restoring an image and rebooting, or you select "Restore image" (or whatever) and it instantly reboots and gets stuck?

I was trying to do this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2737498 and after doing what issue 1 said I rebooted and got a unauthorized device warning. was finally able to get back to hboot and recovery but nothing would work..wiping, factory resetting..nothing. I just had to order new one. I hate mistakes that cost $..lol
Its my own dumbass fault. I shouldve just let it alone. Was running great on viper 1.6

Have you tried flashing any Rom? You can't boot into the OS following a factory reset in TWRP, you will always end up with what you're getting

It is impossible for me to flash a rom. Cant get into a recovery to do it.

EDIT: gonna try verizon RUU. Fingers crossed

Just a thought here. TWRP can install from USB. I have flashed from a thumbdrive in the past on an S3. You may be able to do same. I know this is a shot in the dark but may help.

Will it just sit at the recovery screen or does it boot before you touch anything? If it will sit at the TWRP main screen you should be able to boot into hboot via adb and try a reflash of twrp or CWM. Your recovery may be corrupt.

You're definitely not bricked. You're catching breaks left and right.

Would a moderator kindly close this thread as I have fixed my problem. Thank you!

After toying around with it for HOURS! Somehow I was able to get it to boot into hboot. Which from there was ablt to fastboot an RUU and profit! Funny thing is I had already made a claim with the Big Red V. Called them back to say that I had found my phone...too late claim already in..lol. Now I have a brand new phone on its way and a mini-tab and dev device I guess..lol
