    Never again will I try routing and flashing this phone.... Assuming I can revive it. Yesterday I tried using the All-in-One tool that I'm sure many of you have seen at XDA. After unlocking the boot loader I flashed the PAC Man ROM...... and got it into this infamous boot loop that I only now understand is quite common due to an incompatibility with that ROM's radio. I tried restoring, since I used the All-in- One tool to make a backup, and now I can't even get to the boot loop. It just shows the HTC logo and then the screen goes blank.

    So after reading, some people said to download and flash the RUU for my handset, the U.S. CDMA for virgin mobile. There are two ways that I found to do that. One is using the all in one tool, but it requires the zip version, and I can't find it... just the .exe. The other, is of course to just use the exe version. But when I do that, nothing happens. A wizard starts for a second and then disappears.

    Can someone help me save this phone?

    It sounds like you are almost there.... Before flashing the ruu...did you fastboot a boot img

    I don't think so... In fact I don't even know how to get something to my phone... The adb feature on All-in-One tool does nothing .

    That would explain your boot loop. If you go to htcdev.com, there are links for sdk and your drivers. If you don't have those installed, install them per their instruction. Since our phones are s on, we have to flash the kernel separately. I prefer 7zip. Once you download your Rom on your pc you must open the archives with 7zip and drag the "boot.img"out and then in cmd prompt type "fastboot flash boot boot.img" without this boot.img, you will find endless boot loops, unless you are staying stock.

    There is no way that phone will help you. Try rhythmic Rom ....it has the ota update. There is a guide in here for restoring the ruu. You will have to unroot and relock your bootloader when flashing ruu. It should be a last resort. Can you Get into bootloader to get your radio version

    There is your problem. Your radio will cause boot loops with any custom kernel. You can stick with sense roms (i think). Rhythmic Rom is suppose to work with this radio. For most others you will need to run ruu and Not run ota updates. There is a good thread in here for running the ruu...is the one I had to use .

    Hey thanks for the help. I now found the correct ruu file, and it appears to be successfully transferring from my laptop to my phone. We will see in about six or seven minutes.

    Don't be discouraged from rooting now! Running the ruu wad harder than flashing roms...and now that your radio it's a downgraded, you won't have to worry so much. I'd you need any guidance just post it or pm me

    Hi - I'm having very similar issues, I attempted to unlock, root, and flash a new ROM to my HTC One V and it failed entering into a boot-loop.
    I've since flashed the recovery.img using "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and locked it again using "fastboot oem lock".
    However I am having a great deal of trouble identifying the correct RUU - are you able to advise how you achieved this?

    Thanks in advance

    I made a backup of the rom and boot files with rom manager. I have the rom manager boot application installed. So if you have it I can send you my primoC original Virgin Mobile files.
    When I had any problem with custom roms I just go back to this stock rom and it sends me back to when the phone was like new!

    If you could send them I would appreciate it.... I'mreally struggling to get my phone to work with any ROM and stupidly did not take a backup before starting.

    I am also looking for the RUU for my phone. I am not in a boot loop but flashed a rom and now no matter which rom I flash I have no data connection. Well that is incorrect it says mobile data is on but underneath it it says disconnected and the internet doesn't work. I have the US Cellular HTC One V CDMA

    Radio: .0524_2
    HBoot: 1.56

    Always back your original image before doing anything. Find the RUU that applies to your phone and flash it back to the way it was. Your phone will show relocked instead of locked. No worry, you can still get the updates as if you never done anything to your phone. Good luck
