Default Stuck in Recovery/Bootloader

I have S-off, Unlocked Bootloader, and my EVO is rooted. I have HBOOT 2.09

I tried to install Vanir so I flashed the Gapps 4.4 in TWRP which seemed to work, then I tried to flash Vanir after and got an error.

Now no matter what I do I boot right into recovery and can't seem to figure my way out. Clearly I'm in over my head so if someone could just help me get back to stock at least I would really appreciate it. Thanks

It's 2.6.3 twrp, and whenever I tried to install the ROM it gave me an error message.

Even though you use TWRP 2.6.3.0, it has to be a modded one that allows SELinux support.

Click Me -Flash the Recovery in the OP of this thread

If you have a working fastboot and adb environment on your computer you can flash it by going to to fastboot USB in the bootloader of your phone, and make sure your phone is connected to your PC properly.

Place the .img file in your adb and fastboot folder and then open a command prompt from that location.
then type fastboot flash recovery "recoveryfilename.img" and ofcourse replace recoveryfilename with the actual filename.

after that reboot into recovery and try reflashing Vanir.

This is the method I use to flash recoveries, its fairly simple and fast in my opinion.

Hope this helps.

Sometimes an RUU is all you have left. A powerful option no doubt.
