Hi I had a struggle yesterday because I know nothing about phones so I followed a guide to updating your phone, so I did it through bootloader/recovery and after installing the custom RUU it actually worked, but after loading up on the screen it shows instructions and shows that it's loading the page/phone and i thought maybe it was but it's been like that overnight so is there anyway around this? (I can get on the power off menu with restart etc but thats about it I cant x off the instructions or anything telling me the updates to the phone)

We need more info.

What guide you follow?
Bootloader info?
Hboot?
HTCDev unlock S-ON or revolutionary S-OFF?
What recovery you use?
Did you wiped all except sd?or just installed zip from sd card?
And what RUU you used(post link)?

I just read about [ROM] [02-06] Primo-S - v4.1 [HTC One V port] Android 4.0.3 [Kernel 3.0] and it works fine on HTC Desire S.
First of all it's rom not RUU. if you want to know difference read tutorials and guides here.
You have HTCDev unlocked bootloader and installed 4ext recovery.My recommendation is to flash new 4ext recovery first(touch one) that I uploaded.

of that zip file.
To do this follow step 3. in [Guide] How to root, install EXT4 recovery and custom ROM on HBOOT 2.00.0002 just use recovery.img from attachment down here.
And now for your problem.From what I know this is common problem on S-ON HTCDev unlocked phones.
After flashing new rom you have to flash boot.img from fastboot.
First open your PrimoS-v4.1.zip then you will see file boot.img.Extract it to C:\android-tools.Get in boot by holding power button and volume down together.Connect USB and enter fastboot. (fastboot usb)
Go to start->run-> type cmd and press enter. A command prompt will now appear.
(just like step 4 in guide)
Type:
Code:
cd c:\android-tools [press enter]
fastboot devices [press enter]

this show if your phone is connected to computer
if you get nothing you are not connetced
if you get some info like ST9212IJKL then you type 
 
fastboot flash boot boot.img [press enter]

you will see blue loading form in right upper corner of screen
very fast but that mean you flashed boot
When all this done reboot phone and you should get your rom started.Sometimes it takes up to 10min but no more then that.
If you don't get in like this then you have to go to recovery and wipe all except sd and flash rom again and follow step 4 in guide.

Try this then tell what you got.Good luck.

Hi,

I had the same problem at the beginning as I was unlocked the bootloader with HTCDEV.

If you unlocked the bootloader with HTCDEV, you should flash the boot.img manually with fastboot to get it fixed.

1). Switch off the phone and trun it on to bootloader and go to the fastboot
2). Connect the device to the pc and connect it with fastboot (CMD)
3). extract the custom firmware (.zip) file and find the boot.img file
4). copy it to the location where your fastboot.exe located at (ex: C:\sdk\platform-tools\)

then flash it with
HTML Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
Hope this help you
Regards..
