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 ?

[*]7) Reboot twrp with "adb reboot recovery"

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.

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 ?

You can't even boot now?

After some tinkering around and with everyone's help on this site, I found a stock twrp backup which got the SIM working again.

Have you tried re-locking the bootloader and using HTC's RUU for your device? Screwed up my previous phones and restored them using RUU. It will delete ALL data including TWRP though

Anyone got help with command promts etc, step by step for terminal with a Mac? With regards to HTC Dev part?

Clearly i'm not that super on it, but follow guides pretty well and have been able to do the HTC M7 but forgotten all the terminal parts..

Thanks, fixed

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.

Enabling this would not enable unlocking the bootloader, even if you could reach it in the UI.

Verizon users need to just wait a bit for a pure SunShine solution

okay thanks, i was told to use the wl version even though it wasnt really tested out yet. i'm going to give it a try and hopefully have no issues.

thanks again

It's been tested out...by me...and external SD will not mount in twrp. So you won't be able to make a backup. Uhl works perfectly. Captain throwback even said in the thread that he didn't need to make the wl version. He thought the uhl version wouldn't even boot...but I confirmed that it would.

    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
    3) Using adb, in twrp run - adb shell "echo KEEPFORCEENCRYPT=true>>/data/.supersu"
    4) flash latest supersu from http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/supersu/2014-09-02-supersu-v2-05-t2868133

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you @jcase and @beaups. Just got finished running sunshine on my new 10. The whole process was flawless, not one problem. It's crazy that all that is done through a .apk. That's just amazing. To think what the process was like back in like the Evo 4g days to now is remarkable. To the people that complain about having to pay $25. Look, I understand it's a pain to have to spend an extra $25 when you just spent a bunch on the phone. But if you even stopped to think about the work that goes in to making this happen. HTC has some pretty smart people working for them but time and time again they break the security in these devices. The argument of it use to be free. The level of security that was in place back then versus the level of security today is night and day. It takes a lot more work to crack stuff today and who knows how many devices, that they pay for out of there pocket. But they always come though. So I think $25 is the least we could do. They've given a ton of there time and there talent in the past. It's time they get something in return. To be able to install an app on your phone and then use said app to S-Off the device is really incredible. As many people on here now a days that don't read before messing with there phones, we would have quite a few bricks back in the days when this stuff was free and you had to do the work yourself.
