I had to do a factory reset just to get my phone working again. But now the update screen is popping up again and I have to keep it under 35% so it doesn't auto update and keep pressing remind me later.
How do I disable this auto update? or is there an easier way to make the phone go back to stock since I really don't have any use of a rooted device besides watching MLB games...
Thanks for the help.
Hi, i have a HTC One M8, and when my first update popped, i was very enthuziast.
I accepted to download the update, installed it, and... the problem appeared. The phone made his restart after update... and continued to do so over and over again. (Vibrate/HTC screen on for 30 secs/screen off and so on)
I checked the HTC website for solutions, i entered live chat with a consultant, and he asked me to start the Hard reset procedure. To do that, while turned off, you have to press both volume keys, and press the power button. The phone will enter in the Bootloader menu where you have some options. But... tell me, how to do that if the phone restarts continously? you have about 1-2 seconds to do that, while the screen is off. It gave me a hardtime to do that... Finnally, i managed to enter the Bootloader menu.
There... you have 2 options: (using volume up/down to select, and power button to select) you can select to poweroff(shutdown) the phone - and the phone will shutdown,
or you can turn off the fastboot, and the phone will restart normally.
The thing is that when you restart your phone normaly, while fastboot on, the phone skips some steps, and go directly to to turn it on and show you the startscreen.
When you make a major update, like system upgrade, when the phone restarts, he needs to load all the boot setting. And here is the problem. If you have fastboot on, and make a major update, the phone will enter in this ****ty cicle of continous restarts.
Remember to deactivate this Fastboot before you update!
