Hi,

Today my phone was drained and I left it charging from my laptop. 3-4 hours later I tried to boot it but with no luck.
Also now it was very warm. After some trial and error - and possibly because the phone now was cooler - I was able to boot into fastboot.
But I can't get past the HTC logo. In fastboot I have tried to reflash the boot.img from CM10.2. I have also reflashed a recovery - but still
I can't boot into recovery or CM.
I also tried to unlock the phone but when doing so, I don't get send to the last screen, where I actually unlock the phone (it was already unlocked, it was just a test)
My suspicion is that the internal storage has been fried when the phone overheated - since it seems like that fastboot says it's writing but in fact I doubt that the phone actually wrote anything.

How can I know? Apart from the dead phone, all my pictures are lost in there too.

I would love a little help...

Frederik

In bootloader menu (that with fastboot) you can go to recovery.
Now recovery is broken. Re-flash or flash another recovery. you will now when it's ok. It let you do your work.
In that same menu you have Factory reset. But this erase all in your phone (and SD card)!

Try reflashing stock recovery... Let it do what it needs to do in recovery and then flash whatever custom recovery you have.
