I did more than change the rom. I tried several things to recover the device and may have made things worse. The last rom I tried to upload, was probably not for my unit. for whatever reason I convinced myself that the reason I was having issues was because I had an htc oneXL and not a htc OneX+, and that may have compounded issues. I also tried to flash superCID to 11111111 and I was never able to do it, and at around that point my unit dissapeared as a removeable storage in windows. SO I am unsure how to put roms on the phone now. adb does not seem to see my unit.
I tried running the android phone ROM update utility but am getting a Error 155: unknown error, when I run it.
I dl'ed and ran the two top most ones here http://www.androidruu.com/index.php?developer=EvitaRE
. the update went pretty far but never completed due to the first saying it was incorrect version and the second the Error 155. One thing that is different now, is I re-updated my drivers using Hasoons HTC OneX+ all in one toolkit and I can now see a drive in windows when I boot into recovery. The removable storage drive in windows tell me to insert a disk when I click on it, though. Before I could see 59 gigs of storage, it now has 0 bytes.
