Default [Q] New to rooting, possibly bricked my phone

Hi,

I used the all-in-one tool kit to root my M8. I was following the steps involved and was successful. I tried to install the xposed framework and was told to flash a custom kernel. After doing so my phone will only boot into the fastboot menu, with the "tampered" warning at the top. I can get into the recovery through hboot. Is my phone ruined and if not how can I get this fixed?

Sorry if this has been asked before but I am quite nervous that I ruined my phone. Any help would be much appreciated.

Just restore a back up through recovery or if you don't have one then sideload a rom with that toolkit you used.

what mod were you trying to install from xposed that required a custom kernel? I have it on mine and was never prompted for that!

I think that should work, is there a way to sideload the factory version of the m8?

There are stock roms you can sideload, or find the RUU for your device and return back to 100% stock.

Thanks, I assume the ones on the HTC dev site are the best bet?

I think he needs write access.

I could be wrong though.
