I was running the stock GB ROM, rooted with HTCdev unlock and S-on. I'm pretty sure I had CWM recovery, althought it might have been Amon RA. I did the OTA that "Prepped" the phone for ICS today and it apparently unrooted the phone. I didn't really dig into it and just went ahead with the ICS OTA. It downloaded and I hit OK and it booted into some kind of recovery, again I wasn't paying attention. Eventually the option to reboot presented and I chose it. Now I'm stuck at the white HTC screen.
I know I should have been paying a little more attention to what I was doing and should have done some more reading before I went ahead with the OTA.
I've done some research but haven't found any solutions that are specific to this OTA. What should I do now? Thanks in advance.
No worries. You do need to be careful but you can fix this.
First relock your bootloader in fastboot with the command: fastboot oem lock
Download the RUU file from the android police website and rename it PH98IMG.zip and place it on the root of your external SD card (not in any folders). Reboot to bootloader and your phone will find it and apply the OTA update.
Make sure to remove it from the root directory on your SD after your phone reboots.
You'll be good to go running ICS 3.14.605.12!
EDIT: Just remembered you said you were stuck at splash screen. If you can't get past that you might need an SD card reader to do all this on a pc but its still totally doable.
