    Default Stuck in bootloader.

    I have had my HTC sensation 4G rooted for a bit now, and I needed to send it in for repair so I needed to unroot it.

    I followed the guide on theunlockr for unrooting the HTC sensation 4G.

    After doing
    adb reboot-bootloader

    fastboot oem writesecureflag 3

    fastboot reboot-bootloader

    The phone only boots into that screen, I have tried and searched for a bit. Not really sure what to search for though.

    At the top it says
    *** Security Warning ***

    Did you had a custom ROM on it? Looks like you unrooted with the custom ROM still on it. S-ON tells you that you successfully unrooted, but it can't find the original .img to boot. You need to restore the stock ROM before unrooting. For step by step instruction and how to restore your semi-bricked phone take a look here. Step 5 is what you're looking for. I hope this helps.

    If anyone else had that problem ever, turning S-ON before installing a stock ROM, you can also head to Welcome to HTCdev and follow the instructions there, takes about ten minutes and your device will be able to reboot into your custom ROM once more.
