    Hey guys,

    So I had a series of issues while trying to flash my phone. I initially posted here http://forums.androidcentral.com/htc...-sense-ui.html but that was the wrong section. But a moderator was SUPER kind to help me out ALL afternoon.

    Long story short, I couldn't get into recovery mode. When I finally did and tried to flash it so I can revert back to Sense based ROM, the installation got stuck.

    I tried installing Android Revolution HD but the installation is stuck at 30%. It's been an hour now...

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/htc...-sense-ui.html <--- this thread has more information toward the end about this issue in particular.

    I'm really scared since I JUST bought this phone off a friend of a friend and I can't really return it

    Which carrier are you on? I have the sprint version of the htc one, I soft bricked my phone a few day ago trying to flash that same rom. Lucky I figured out how to get back to stock and re-root and flash viper rom.

    I don't know what the phone is originally on. The guy I bought it from said it was factory unlocked though. But I'm beginning to doubt that

    I, however, am on Fido... Canada.

    I just checked command prompt using adb devices

    It detects the device. My Serial number is listed and it says "Offline" and underneath "CWM-HTC recovery"

    Does this help?

    Couldn't you just use you carrier specific ruu to flash it back to stock?

    The htc one is a globally unlocked device, so it will work on any gsm carrier as long as the apn settings are correct. Still trying to find a little more info for you on what's going on.

    I assure you it's a great phone and once you get it up and running, which we will, you will lose that uneasy feeling. Sometimes things go wrong during these processes. Since your device is still being registered by adb, I am sure there is a solution.

    Like I said, I've gotten a ton of great support. I'm just paying it forward the first thing that comes to mind with this issue is that perhaps the switch from a non sense Rom to a sense Rom may be causing problems at the kernel level. I am trying to figure out now if more steps should have been taken or what we can do to get you back on the wagon.

    Is there a way we can get out of this screen though? Cause nothing I do really works. Tried holding down the power button and volume key for up to 30 seconds

    Is there a way to restart it from the computer? And if we DO, will there be an OS on it?

    If there were some way to shut it down, I'm assuming there would not be an os on it.

    So shutting it down won't help either cause we won't have anything to boot, right? What should we be trying to do

    I think you should also post this on xda. I'm not an expert by any means, but I promise I am trying my best to find a solution.

    Yeah I was about to post on XDA forums.

    Got an UPDATE though. I used "adb reboot bootloader" in cmd and this time it worked. Now, however, I'm stuck on the HTC Quietly Brilliant

    I'm not familiar with the HTC One specifically, so I'm speaking generically... but if you're able to get into recovery, there isn't a lot of danger from you stopping an install midway by doing a simulated "battery pull". On previous versions of HTC devices with sealed batteries, you could accomplish this by holding only the power button for 10 seconds until it vibrates. It will attempt a regular boot, which your device is not doing well with, so you would simply follow the same procedure you used previously to get out of that cycle and into the custom recovery.

    From there, you can attempt to reflash the same ROM or, personally I'd recommend getting the RUU for your device and flashing that first so you know you're on something stable, then going to a custom ROM once you get a successful nandroid of that.

    The problem with that is I'm not sure what the RUU for my device is. The person I bough it from told me it was Factory Unlocked...but I'm not sure I believe he really knows. So I'm in a pickle

    They are all factory unlocked as far as global use. Is he insinuating that it is the developer edition, aka, it was s-off, and bootloader unlocked from the factory?

    ...This is the only thing i miss about not having a sd card. I flashed my og evo time and time again, got stuck with faulty roms, downloaded alternate ones, loaded them on the sd and re flashed to safety.

    If you could only get into recovery to check for a nandroid backup...or if you could access your files while connected than you could load another rom to flash...

    Sorry i skimmed the threads but at this point do you know what recovery you have? Twerp or CM?

    That's what I gather. I can't get a hold of the moron though. Think he's avoiding me on purpose

    Is there a way I can reflash my phone now that I'm on the HTC Screen? I can't get to the bootloader though.

    Did you power off or did it finish the flash?

    So right now when you try and boot you're stuck on the boot screen. What about when you try to boot into recovery? How far do you get?
