Unhappy Simular Problem

My Phone; (AT&T HTC One M8 Unlocked, Rooted S-off ), TWRP Recovery, Superuser GOO Manager installed. Flashed the Venom rom using teamwin app. Followed inst, plus youtube video. Did not work first time. Installed backup phone went back to normal, tried flashing again went fine rebooted once rebooted would not turn on, can not get into recovery. Phone powers up and say UNFORTUNATELY PHONE HAS STOPPED WORKING. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thumbs up ipad charger head 5mins, then connect the original

Ive held the power button down for about 60 seconds, tried power+up/down volume rocker and am getting no results. If I plug the phone in to my usb on my computer, the LED does not turn on either. Any suggestions? I think i may have to make a trip down to the ATT store today
All right so what I've done is I followed you guys what to do. I tried the 16hours charge, no success, hard reset, no success, soft reset no success, drop it from the 10th floor, no success (...joke). So basically I almost late from my work place because of the charging and the complete battery drain then charged a whole day, try to find solutions everywhere but nothing at all... then just now I start thinking as they says you can only use the factory charger to charge (that was all right that is why I am in that situation but .. what if it's not enough to charge that??) yes...thinking about something more but not much more powerful to kind of ignite" the battery. I got an OLD ipad charger (not the small, the old proper IPAD charger head) I connect it together with the factory lead for like 5 mins nothing...I gave a last try with the original charger and original lead and then IT CAME ON!! so if you got a friend, relative, neighbour, girlfriend, boyfriend whoever has an old ipad charger give it a try for like a 5mins and then put the original back...maybe...worth for a try, mine is working now!

This may have been addressed already but this morning my HTC m8 was unresponsive and had a green led at the top. I looked around on the net for answers and a forced reset worked for me. I had to press
-power- vol up- vol down
all together and in that order, and my phone rebooted normally and is working fine. I recently enabled ART and that may be a factor but I'm not really sure. Phones working just fine now.

Default htc one wont turn on even when charging, found a solution!

My HTC m8 went dead thought battery was drained put it on a charger and nothing!! Almost have up but than I held the power and both volume up and down for about 15-20secs and it turned back on! I was almost about to go to AT&T and get a new phone. So if anyone has that problem try that!
