I installed clockwork mod recovery on my phone. Had a ROM to install, however the ROM installer package wasn't working properly. I mistakenly restarted my phone after having formatted my phone to install the ROM. So now the phone has started up to the white HTC screen and will not go any further. I cannot get it to restart into recovery or to simply power down. Do I need to just let the battery die and then restart into recovery or is there a hardware way to get it to restart without tearing the phone apart? Thanks!

Just holding the power button for 10 seconds or so. It should power off. It is essentially the same thing as pulling the battery (on phone where you can do that).

Volume UP plus Power for 10 seconds worked to get it to power down. Then I was able to access recovery. Thank you
