Default Hey sub! Loved my HTC One [M7] until it entered a so-far-unfixable bootloop...

Hey guys! First off, I don't know if I'm posting in the right place, but I hope I am. I jumped on this phone on my first switch back to Android after a while spent on an iPhone 4S and have loved modifying it as much as any Android user can, but I ran into trouble.

I started having issues playing Spotify over Bluetooth in my car about a week ago. I figured it must have something to do with that app or another on my phone, so I factory reset it. It worked wonderfully for a day or so and then... turned it off at night and it started into a boot loop I since haven't been able to fix.

I knew next to nothing about unlocking the bootloader, fastboot commands, adb commands, alternate recoveries and ROMs before I started. My googling has been very productive and I feel semi-educated now, but I'm stuck in a bind.

Basically, because it's bootlooping I can't launch into the OS, so adb commands appear to be useless. But they also appear to be necessary to load the recovery I want to load (any recovery really), because "fastboot flash recovery" with most recent TWRM and Clockwork will write, but when I try to enter recovery, it says "Entering recovery..." in pink and then bootloops again.

I downloaded a sweet looking toolkit that'll download CWM and TWRP and flash for me, but it's effectively the same thing as flashing via command prompt, I think. I can't switch to S-Off or install a Superuser without being able to boot so I can use ADB commands.

I've done "fastboot erase cache" to no avail. I've tried to RUU but every available RUU version won't write because I'm S-On and updated to the most recent OS.

Is there some way to execute adb commands with a phone that won't enter the OS? Or is there something else I haven't tried yet?

Not yet! Is that the next step though? I had very much hoped I'd be able to claw back to life.

Well if it started bootlooping by itself (ie you didn't flash anything wrong), then it's likely a hardware problem.

Can you post a "fastboot getvar all" (excluding IMEI and s/n), and a screenshot of bootloader.

Well if you didn't flash anything new, then it's most likely a hardware problem.

And you have a Sprint phone, so are you using a custom recovery for Sprint, eg: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7wls
because they are different between Sprint and M7_U/UL models (and of course you have checked MD5 on the download)

you may also want to check the Sprint forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/sprint-htc-one
most of us here are on m7_u/ul models.
