Default One M8 keeps rebooting after 15-20sec

Hey guys,

Iīm quite new in this area. I rooted my phone a couple of days ago, and today an update for HTC something came up. I updated right away, muscle reflex, and not thinking about that it was rooted. Right after the update was finished downloading and installing, it required a reboot to finalize the installation. Rebooted, and started to use the phone again. After about 15-20 seconds (I can do whatever I want in this time), it starts to reboot again and again and again. No idea idea why, but I guess it could be the update that is trying to finish.

I guess I can do a factory reset to remove the update, but is there anything else I can do?

edit: Since so many people are experiencing the same problem, I'll post the solution here and AnDruid's reply which explains the process.

"I solved it by clicking the Supersu app, which then asked me what kind of recovery i used. I didnīt have time to read through it all, so don't know what it specifically said, but I chose TWRP and it had to reboot and start installing some kind of script (God I feel like a noob saying some kind).

Booted up again, no restarts."


AnDruid - "The SuperSu app asked about recovery and the option to chose was TWRP/CWM (I am on TWRP). SuperSu itself seemed to reboot the phone and invoked the "OpenrRcoveryScript" installs the "update.zip" (which I am not sure but could be the HTC Update file? Or it could be something related to supersu itself)."

This thing happened to my Moto G couple of months back,
the rebooting is happening mainly due to root. before taking OTA you need to remove the root completely.
try to delete the super su or chainfire in that 20 sec interval.

I don't think deleting Supersu will stop ota.You can choose survive mode in supersu which will allow you to take ota and you will have root access.As long as you don't change/modify system you will be able to take ota.
Don't say thanks hit thanks if I have helped.

Current Device:

S-OFF-Yes
Recovery:TWRP
Kernel:ElementalX

I don't think he got an OTA, a software update was released recently that is installed directly within Android, but still requires s reboot.

No idea about the question though...

Cheers for the answers guys.

I solved it by clicking the Supersu app, which then asked me what kind of recovery i used. I didnīt have time to read through it all, so no what it specifically said, but I chose TWRP and it had to reboot and start installing some kind of script (God I feel like a noob saying some kind).

Booted up again, no restarts.

Thanks again!

I was in the same boat as you, phone out of order for the whole morning today. I followed the same steps as you and phone is stable after the reboot (Thanks!).

In case someone wants to dig deeper, the SuperSu app asked about recovery and the option to chose was TWRP/CWM (I am on TWRP). SuperSu itself seemed to reboot the phone and invoked the "OpenrRcoveryScript" installs the "update.zip" (which I am not sure but could be the HTC Update file? Or it could be something related to supersu itself).

Yeah that's exactly it! Glad I could help with my vaguely described solution Could someone briefly describe what the update.zip file updates?

You're a life saver! Here I was thinking I messed it all up, and would need to do a factory reset

This worked for me! Was just about to do a full restore, so this saved me a bunch of time
