Default [Q] stuck in recovery

hi, i bought used and "broken" htc one x, previous owner said it has bad battery and ROM because it swich on and after 10s restart in infinity loop. So i replace the battery and yesterday it swich on only in recovery mode and i dont know what to do. I thnik battery have still small capacity, maybe it is another hardware issue.

have you tried to flash another recovery? try Philz one (the best version depends on the rom you want to try), connect to pc, mount usb as storage, copy a rom on the phone and flash it if it is bootloop maybe it's a bad kernel flash or a missing kernel flashing process

no, if it's off you can't, but as buttons blink three times, maybe you can enter fastboot and so you can try to update recovery...
sorry, mine are only guesses as i've never faced such a condition, but if you can enter fastboot maybe you can recover the device

it's not recovery, it's fastboot
do this way: try to download again the unlock.bin from htcdev.com if you haven't got it, unlock the bootloader and flash the recovery i told you before, then enter recovery, connect to pc and select mount usb storage... then copy a rom zip on phone, reboot to bootloader and flash rom kernel, enter again recovery, wipe everything to flash a new rom and flash the zip.. you should be fine
search this threads for guides, there are many and i can't give you all the links

please fell free to ask me if you have any question/issue
p.s. before unlocking the bootloader again, update hboot to at least 1.39.0000

better idea is to keep it locked and get a ruu for him, you only need his main number :

fastboot getvar version-main

you're right Mr Hofs, but i really don't like stock rom and i've never used a RUU, so i fear i would have given wrong infos
anyway your way is the easiest one

Maybe he flashed the recovery as a kernel, so when he installs ROM and reboots it just boots recovery again.
