Hi.

It happened to me earlier and I've seen a few people in the same boat.

So you flashed a zip, rebooted and stuck at splash. When rebooting to recovery it goes and sticks on splash and the only thing to work is fastboot.....what to do?

Don't panic its not a brick.


Hold power 7 seconds to restart phone, when off hold vol down to enter HBOOT.

Once in HBOOT press power to enter fastboot.

First try 'fastboot erase cache' and then 'fastboot reboot-bootloader' this should do the job, if this don't work, reboot into fastboot and try below.

On your pc open cmd and change directory to where your adb and fastboot are. Once there use 'fastboot oem lock' your bootloader should now say Relocked I think.

After that download RUU specific to your handset and run. This should install fine and return you to stock.

After done you may need unlock bootloader again, I did via HTCDEV and then reflashed recovery with 'fastboot flash recovery *recovery name*

Job done, phone restored, panic over :)

So here a method which always works (many people have issues with flashing RUU's etc. having a bootlop.)
  • Download a RUU from here, thanks to Football!
  • Now open the .exe and make sure that it fully started.
  • Don't click anything, just go to windows icon and search for %temp%.
  • You will now find some folders, just search through these folders for the ROM.zip.
  • If you found it, you can copy it to your desktop or somewhere else.
  • Extract it with WinRar,7-zip or something like that and take the boot_signed.img and system.img.
  • Now copy the two files into the folder where the fastboot.exe is placed (if you have installed the Android SDK, it should be in platform-tools)
  • Plug in your One X, go into the bootloader and go into fastboot mode.
  • Navigate with the cmd in the folder with the fasboot.exe and the two .img's.
  • Now type in that:

Code:
fastboot flash boot boot_signed.img
After that:

Code:
fastboot flash system system.img
If everything worked, just reboot:

Code:
adb reboot

ok thanks for the thread
after fastboot erase cache
Do also a fastboot reboot bootloader.
Usually works after that

OP Just to save countless questions think you have missed a dash between reboot and bootloader as command should read fastboot reboot-bootloader if im not mistaken.
