Hi,

I awoke this morning to have my One reboot on me, only to have it hang at the green HTC logo.
I need help getting it functional again, asap.
I'm s-off and rooted.

What I can do:
Boot to bootloader and use fastboot commands - but
Code:
 fastboot reboot oem rebootRUU
does not boot to the black HTC screen, but back to the green HTC logo, so I'm unable to flash a RUU.

What I can't do:
Use adb commands
Boot to recovery - freezes at teamwin screen. However, when the phone is stuck at the teamwin screen, I seem to be able to use adb - if I get here, I can reboot to the bootloader with adb.
Boot to system - hangs at the green HTC startup logo.

What I've tried:
Using fastboot to flash a new recovery to restore the backup I should have - still hangs at teamwin screen

Is there anything that can be done to fix this, or is my phone a lost cause?

After further investigation, it seems nothing I do persists on the phone. I attempted to flash the stock recovery to attempt another factory reset, but it still attempts to boot to TWRP.

i would RUU to get back to a working phone.

by any chance did you make a backup of you internal storage because ruu will format it.

EDIT:
are you s-off and unlocked?

Yes to both - but how can I flash a RUU? When I run the fastboot oem rebootRUU command it does not boot to the usual black/silver HTC screen, instead the normal green startup logo.

before you said you did command:
Code:
fastboot reboot oem rebootRUU
the actual command is:
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
also make sure RUU is the only capital letters


when i fastboot, if you type:
Code:
fastboot devices
what is the output ??

Unfortunately, that has the same result - stuck at the green HTC boot logo.
EDIT:
After sitting at this screen for awhile, it booted into what looks like the stock rom, asking for a password to decrypt the storage. I don't recall ever setting a password for this, and even if I did, I stopped using the stock rom almost as soon as I got the phone.
Code:
fastboot devices
outputs the serial number and that it's in fastboot:
Code:
-serial number here-  fastboot

make sure the pc can see fastboot on the device with command:

Code:
fastboot devices
if output looks like this:
C:\>fastboot devices
FA38PS904782 fastboot

you should be able to type:
Code:
fastboot flash zip nameofruu.zip
and it will start to process.

yay, this means fastboot is talking to the phone. thats odd that storage is encrypted. can you still use the phone to get to settings?

Unfortunately, no. I just get an option to decrypt the storage with a password or make an emergency call. I'm about to attempt to flash the ruu .zip without booting into rebootRUU, unless there is something else I can do.
