Recently rooted it, installed Xposed, installed a module for smooth status bar or something, did a soft reboot and now it won't do anything.

Been through the Evo, Thunderbolt, DNA and now the M8 is my first brick. I suppose I could say I lost it and hopefully the warranty will cover it.

How long did you hold it for, held mine for at least 30 seconds and nothing.

Yes if your phone freezes after choosing soft reboot in xposed just hold "volume up & power" til you see the HTC logo on screen
