Hi guys,
I turned on my phone and suddenly it doesn't boot (stays on HTC logo)
I booted into recovery (Using Team Win Recover v2.4.4.0)
My Vivid doesn't boot to any ROM (TeamWin recovery says no OS)
I can't mount my internal storage and when I try to factory reset it shows
"E: unable to mount /emmc"
"E: unable to mount internal storage"
The drive doesn't show up in Windows 7.
I did SEARCH and did the method of formatting the drive but that was doing only the SD card not the internal.
Internal doesn't show up at all.

Any help?
I read something about RUU, how would I do that?

Please Help, I have no working phone ATM.

Do a search in q&a (or general) for RUU, and you should find detailed instructions on how to perform it.

If that's the case... You might be in trouble...

Try this...

Remove the micro SD card... And try mounting again...

Also... If you have some patience... Try using Ubuntu and the program Gparted (I think)... You may have better luck

Will not relocking and flashing RUU not fix it?

Now my root doesn't work right.
Titanium says root isn't working and Superuser says failed.
I tried flashing VIVID_CWM_ROOT_VER2 and it's says it works.
