It would show funky colors and boot up to the HTC logo and restart.
I did everything again and now I can boot up to a rom but only to the lock screen. If I swipe to unlock it I end up on an HTC screen. Sense doesn't start up. What can I do now? Side load?
I can't get to finish the soft from rumrunner because after it boots up it only stays on for so long before the reboot.
I'm new to the HTC one but not to flashing.
Use Firewater to S-Off. Rumrunner won't work on some versions of Android, especially 4.4.2.
I had the same exact problem you're having now, with the funky colors. You might be hard-bricked, just like I was. DO NOT FORMAT ANYTHING, or you'll lose your stock ROM, and there doesn't seem to be a stock ROM available, right now. If you already have, get ViperMAX 2.0.0 as your new OS. It's as close to stock as our models can get right now, and it ROCKS.
Check out the thread, I started, on this issue and subscribe to it. I have a feeling we'll get some great peeps to help us out!
Note the programs I'm using as well. Might help. I spent 20+ hours on this.
Good luck to you bro
