    Exclamation My son has 'soft bricked' my phone!

    Hi all

    My 4yr old has somehow managed to "soft brick" my phone. I'm a noob and have been doing a lot of reading and experimenting since last night, but now I'm stuck!

    I have a HTC One (M7), UK, on EE network (but before I messed around with it, it came up as ORANG001 - I think).

    The phone doesn't get past the loading HTC logo, but I can access bootloader.

    Currently, bootloader info is:

    ***TAMPERED***
    ***RELOCKED***
    ***Security Warning***
    M7_UL PVT SHIP S-ON RH
    HBOOT-1.55.0000
    RADIO-4A.21.3263.04
    OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
    OS-
    eMMC-boot 2048MB
    Oct 21 2013,22:50:54.0

    I have managed to install twrp-2.7.1.0a-m7

    ADB works when phone is in recovery mode.

    But I can't seem to S-OFF the phone or install a ROM to get the phone working again!

    Please help!!!!

    Try doing a delvik cache and factory reset and see if that fixes the problem. You can get s off by using moonshine. Just google Moonshine s-off if you have a problem. Though I would recommend doing a full cache wipe and a factory reset before you go on to installing a new ROM
