Default [Q] HELP No Boot

So I flashed a Hex Edited HBoot screen and now my phone doesn't have a boot screen. It goes to the HTC w/ Powered by Android at the bottom screen. It stays on that screen for about 10 minutes then it is just on the Android homescreen. Not sure what to do from here. I have the HK Edition. Flashed back to the stock HBOOT and also reflashed ROM. Flashed a boot screen as well, and none of it fixed it. Any help would be great!

EDIT: About to RUU. Really hope that fixes it.

I wouldn't. If you did the firmware update with WiFi calling, flash the hboot version and wait for the updated hboot edits to come.

Check thoughtlesskyle's thread in Android Development. The newest stock version.

So basically this happened because I am an idiot and flashed the wrong HBOOT file?

Figured it out. Flashed OMJ's stock firmware and that fixed it. Thanks for the heads up about the RUU.

I did the same damn thing and planned on flashing the ruu after work. Can you link the exact file you flashed? I tried firmwares but none will work. Maybe I missed the omeyou used. I have a regular M8.

I wouldn't be comfortable linking the exact file w/o OMJ's permission. But the thread is here.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2729173

Go to the bottom of the first post and pull the full firmware w/o the hboot removed. I think you have to change your CID as well. The instructions on how to do that is in the first post as well. Hope that helps.

EDIT: BTW I used the Fastboot flash method. Had to do it twice. Got an error about flushing the file the first time.

I can confirm that I had to SuperCID to do a modded hboot flash, otherwise the flash didn't actually happen.
