1) Unlock your phone with htcdev.com or s-off it with sunshine http://theroot.ninja (using built in temproot)
2) flash latest twrp from http://twrp.me

Hey all
Ran into a bit of a problem. I followed another sites instructions on rooting the HTC10 which basically said : Unlock Bootloader > Flash TWRP > Install SuperSU > Reboot phone.

What it didn't include was backing up the System Image.

Now, the phone will not recognize my SIM card at all.

Does anyone have a system image backup I can use to get the SIM working again ?

I've already checked that thread (actually, was the first place I checked)
Couldn't see a CID for VODAP021
Is there another Backup image I can use that would be compatible ?

You try formatting data? Obviously back everything up to external SD or computer beforehand.

That was a oversight on my behalf. Besides, never needed to do anything like that on the M8, so it didn't really cross my mind at the time.
Anyway, its been done. Any way to recovery it now ?
Maybe with a stock ROM ?

Thanks for this guide and your teams' fast support of the 10. It's really appreciated. I got S-Off without issue.

One note about the guide, reboot to recovery does not currently work. It will only reboot to download, bootloader or system and attempting to reboot to recovery will reboot to system instead. @Captain_Throwback indicated this is a known issue with the current build of TWRP.

You can't even boot now?

Jut an FYI on VZW 10, you need to check oem unlock in developer options to unlock bootloader BUT it's not there. I assume Verizon hid it.
