Friends, My htc wont start neither goes in to fastboot or recovery or anything. I guess the mobile is completely dead but my laptop makes a sound when i connect my mobile to it indicating something is connected. Any way to solve this problem? Please help me. Or service center is the only option? I tried flashing stock rom using adb run but it is stuck at waiting for device and i dont even know if the mobile is connected in fastboot mode or any other since display never turns on even while charging? Please suggest me what to do? Thanq

I had the same problem and the only solution was to take it to a service and they had to change the whole plate

htc 516 dual stuck htc logo fixed

This phone has never been even mentioned on xda so there is nothing to search for.
Anyways i have gone thru some threads of similar phones and tried some one click root methods. They didnt work.

So i thought i should unlock the bootloader.
Just for the sake of it i tried to boot into recovery and was successful.
Then i started following those htcdev.com instruction which required me to go into the bootloader mode.
But whenever i try doing that it either:
-Remains stuck at htc logo screen (the 1st one and not the bootanimation)
-Boots normally

then i saw that i had to press this button release this after so many seconds and......
so just to be sure that im not making those silly mistakes i tried to go into bootloader thru adb which always remains stuck at the htc splash screen (htc - powered by android).
then i tried to go to recovery but now even that isnt possible.

so in short: i cant get into the bootloader so i cant unlock or root. I cant get into the recovery either. The phone otherwise is working pretty normal. But on trying to get into any modes i remain stuck at the 1st htc screen (and not the bootanimation) and then i have to remove the battery to get it booting normally.

It is HTC Desire 516 Dual sim and is on JB 4.3 (if u needed this)

and finally i got this log from a unlock tool if it makes it easier for you


pls do help if u can :highfive: :fingers-crossed:

You can not move apps to sd but you can make a second ext4 Partition on your sd card and use link2sd app to link them to sd card's 2nd Partition and you can also use folder mount to share huge obb and big files from sd card to internal storage.

I used Apps2sd [root]. It's an all in one utility app. For linking apps to sd and partitioning sd card. It works for me. And backup your sd card data. Because by making 2nd partition it will format your sd card.

    Full Root HTC Desire 516 dual sim

    Here is how to root your HTC Desire 516 dual sim
    I downloaded rootdashi_2 4 apk from Chinese website www ug7 net/htc/HTCDesire516yidongban htm < replace spaces with dots
    After I saw the green check mark (I do not understand a word Chinese), I installed zdsrooter_setup_2 6 16 3 exe on my wifes windows computer (I'm on Linux Debian).
    Connected my phone via USB cable, it did something and reboot, after I got full root.
    Replaced Busybox and SuperSU and that's all.
    Downloaded term-init.sh from www theandroidhow com/2014/06/how-to-enable-initd-support-on-android html, executed and got init.d
    (re)formated my external SD Card with 1G ext4 partition (GParted), and with Link2SD got possibility to link my data apps.
    Essentially, this is what I expected from my phone.
    Custom recovery would be cherry on top, but now I can wait.

    Flashify is an option, but since your device appears to have no root access, redoing the rooting process is the logical choice. Maybe iRoot (formerly vRoot) will work, should Kingroot fail again. But I've read somewhere that XDA devs discourage the use of vRoot.

    By the way, what's the error message when you input "adb reboot bootloader"?

    Thanks man!
    It did not output anything. Adb shell reboot bootloader did the trick though :)

    For all the people looking for a simple way to root.

    1.Enable ADB.
    2.In cmd,
    " adb shell reboot bootloader"
    Wait for it to get stuck on the HTC screen.
    "fastboot flash recovery path-to-your-recovery-file" (use cwm as TWRP doesn't work properly yet)
    "fastboot reboot"
    Now download latest flashable of SuperSu and put it in your SD card or internal storage.
    "adb reboot recovery"
    Use cwm to flash the SuperSu file and reboot. (Y)

    Doesn't work!!


    Another option that you can try is the following Chinese Software called iRoot. (Previously called Vroot) Al you have to do is install the software, click Root and connect the USB cable. If I remember the order correctly.

    This one worked for me:
    http :// www . mgyun . com / en / getvroot (Replace spaces by nothing)

    According to some video's and forums you can later replace iRoot by SuperSu. Haven't tried this yet, cause I can work with this for now.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Now let's hope someday we can run CWM or TWRP recovery and that Cyanogenmod (or another good custom rom) is made available for our phone. It seems that they have somehow forgotten our phone. :(

    Do you have a backup of the original boot.img if something goes wrong? Also if new OTA updates are released I guess v need to switch back to original files in order to install OTA updates.
