Default [Q] Phone powers down into CWM Recovery!

HTC One M8 GSM Developer Edition

Installed recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.8-m8.img using Fastboot,
and then installed UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.94.zip
then took a nandroid backup.
Booted into Android - no problems.

But now when I power down it reboots into CWM Recovery.
Even when I select the advanced options of CWM Recovery, and Power Down,
it reboots into CWM Recovery.
Selecting Power Down from Fastboot also reboots into CWM Recovery.

From CWM Recovery I can
Boot System Now
and it boots into the system,
But when I power down, it reboots again into CWM Recovery.

ie, I can't power down.

(note A restart from Android does an actual restart into the phone OS, not into CWM Recovery.)

The above only happens if a power or usb cable is connected.
If no power cable is connected, it shuts down normally.
But, if after it is shut down, I connect a power cable,
it boots into CWM Recovery !!


Note that if I turn back on Power/Fastboot, then I can shutdown properly even with power connected.

Anybody have any idea what is causing this
and what I can do about it?

Have done this before on a Galaxy Nexus with no problems.

Am lost and stuck.

ok, but then which is the correct forum?
The only forum I can find on CWM Recovery for the HTC OneM8 is for Verizon.
thanks

its a little confusing when HTC release different phones with the same name, always refer to your phone model, not its consumer name.

you are in the Htc one forum (M7)

your forum (htc one M8) is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-one-m8

twrp for the M8 can be found here: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m8

cwm for the m8 can be found in the sticky thread of the M8 general forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...98&postcount=3



For your issue, you should try to use TWRP instead of cwm and see if it works. Don't forget to ''fastboot erase cache'' after flashing the recovery.img

just add [PLEASE MOVE] in your thread title and they will move it to the M8 Q&A for you.

groan, just reposted into M8 3 mins ago!
Can I put [PLEASE DELETE], or is that bad form?
