Unhappy Simular Problem
My Phone; (AT&T HTC One M8 Unlocked, Rooted S-off ), TWRP 2.7.0.0 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.

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.

Exact same situation and the exact same ROM.

No combo of buttons will get it to boot. It will turn on and then just turn back off. Did you ever have your issue solved?

EDIT: Found a solution. If this happens to you, Press and hold the power button and the vol up button for 10 secs exactly. Then power and vol down. This allowed be to boot into recovery.

I believe what caused it was incorrect firmware for the ROM that I installed.

Just as an update to original post, I had to go to AT&T and get a new phone. No matter what they (and I) did, it would not turn on. Thank goodness it was under warranty

So, I have a HTC Desire 610. It's quite "new", was released in Feb. 2014. I am rooted and have TWRP recovery. When I soft reboot, it sometimes gets stuck on a black screen, and if taken out of charging, LED stays on. I couldn't turn it on, but next morning, the LED was gone. The phone was dead (no battery). When I plugged it in, it flashed TWRP, and I could reboot fine from there. You need to wait until the phone dies.
Hope it works!

Thumbs up Thx so much for the "vol up + power" tip. Turned my M8 on with blazing smiles from it
After reading "Greatest Tip Ever" comment (Thx so much for the "vol up + power" tip. Turned my M8 on with blazing smiles from its owner. ),

I tried the same for my phone which had failed turn on throughout the weekend and walla...it came back on.

A few weeks back i run this RUU RUU_M8_WHL_L50_SENSE60_SPCS_MR_Sprint_WWE_4.25.651 .14_Radio_1.09.20.0209_NV_SPCS_1.52_003_release_42 6232_signed_2 on my HTC One M8 HK Edition little did i know it would become a normal HTC One M8.
The battery is a big problem.

Whoever forwarded the vol up + power , a big thumbs up to you. Thank you so much.

I wanted to upgrade my unlocked "S-Off" HTC One M8 HK Edition to Lollipop 5.1 as am now at 5.0.02.

Kindly advise.
