My phone has been succussfully been S-off and rooted using the DirtyRacun method for over a year. I have used the recovery and booted different ROMs with no problem. I have found a ROM that I like and have been using it and haven't changed anything recently. The following problem arose from a normal day of usage.
I had my phone turned off because I was not going to be using it and wanted to conserve battery. Upon turning it on it was fine and battery above 60%. Within an hour my phone screen was black and unresponsive although the bottom lights were on. I held the power button to do a soft reset. My phone is now stuck in a bootloop at the white htc screen. I rebooted to the bootloader where upon when it does the image checks NONE of them are found. I tried to boot into recovery. Again it goes to the white htc screen and enters a bootloop. I boot back into bootloader. If I go to the powerdown option my phone turns off. 20 seconds later it turns itself back on without any intervention and goes back to bootloop. I let the battery die and then plugged it in. It charged for a while and then proceeded to start turning itself back into bootloop without any intervention.
I did also try to fastboot flash recovery twp.image It was unsuccessful due to low remote battery. (phone has currently died again. I'm going to let it charge until it starts itself again and retry that step to see if I might have a large enough charge then). The following from the Don't Panic guide is most relevant I believe...
"Bad kernel and or system image and recovery Phone will boot to boot loader, will not boot to OS and selecting recovery will boot to boot loader. All is not lost, simply fastboot recovery and or boot image (for those on HBOOT 1.15 and higher) and then flash ROM from recovery. This happens but it is very unlikely it will happen to you."
I am outside of my league on this one.
Any help will be much appreciated
I took it to Sprint. They thout it was the power button, after replacing it and the same I got a refurbashed phone through TEP insurance at no cost. WIN. Except does anyone have S-off suggestions for Hboot 2.09 and mainver 3.17.651.4 dirtyracun which I am familiar with does not apper to work.
