i am s-off and not sure about RUUing at all with this phone. i will give them ideas a try now and report back once done. hope that works.

which RUU would u suggest i try? i am on Bad Boyz Sprint ONE M8 Harman v1.1 rom with build 1.54.654.13. if that matters any.
If u know a link to the RUU thatd be great help and save me a lill time. thanks

I know my issue was fixed by using philz recovery, wiping data, cache, and system and then installing a new rom. If the issue is what I think it is, then wiping all the partitions I mentioned should fix it. (I think the issue is related to some file system corruption and twrp not being able to properly handle the corruption, when other recoveries work just fine, so formatting the partition will get rid of the corrupted data)

You can wipe boot partition as well, just dont wipe anything you dont immediately recognize (I know philz touch has tons of options to wipe different partitions, and a lot of them probably would be bad to wipe lol)

ok i wiped said partitions and tried installing viper from philz recovery and twrp recovery and no go same thing happening. almost got worried when i tried rebooting and got the "no OS installed, r u sure?" but i just installed bad boyz again to get going again. im gonna try RUUing cause now i get a message after my phone starts saying something bout inconsistent partitions, u must wipe data partition or phone will be unstable. so gonna just RUU and start from there. do u know by chance if it is possible to create a backup with say twrp recovery and able to restore it with any of the recoveries such as philz or does a backup need to restored using the recovery it was created with? thanks again.

Here is a shot of what I received in philz after attempting viper install. http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/...psl8wwj5mi.jpg

Good news.. I was able to install ViperONEm8 rom finally after all the hassle.
i went to TWRP recovery website and downloaded the TWRP recovery 2.7.0.2 and downnloaded ViperONEm8 1.5.0 version and flashed the recovery and installed the 1.5.0 version without a problem i tried 1.6.0 first but got the failed thing again but 1.5.0 installed no problem. YAYYY!!
Thank you all for your help
