    I have a HTC Evo 3D that when I boot up just wont boot up. It's stuck in bootloop the Bootloader screen says
    LOCKED
    Shooter_U PVT SHIP S-ON RL
    HBOOT-1.53.0007
    eMMC-boot

    I think it may be bricked or something I have no idea what's happened to it.

    Have you tried selecting a factory reset to see if that helps?

    I tried it and it still is stuck in a bootloop. Do I need to go to some professional to fix it or can I fix it by myself with professional advice from some of you? It goes to the HTC quietly brilliant splash screen then just stays stuck for abit and reboots.

    You can't flash anything when your bootloader is locked. You need to unlock it first.

    This applies to stock images with ADB as well?

    Or is this an example of an RUU is probably the best way to go?

    1. Yes, it applies to any stock images for HTC devices. In my time developing for the HTC One X, I have not read anything on successful flashing involving a locked bootloader.

    2. An RUU might work, it just needs to be the exact version the person is running on his or her phone or else it will result in bricking.

    Before I help you, I need more information. When did this bootloop start happening? Did it happen after you tried flashing it?

    I personally didn't tamper with it. There is a possibility my brother could of done something. He does like to screw things up. Basically, I checked this phone it booted up perfectly then I didn't have access to it. When I got it back it was like this.

    In the bootloader menu, above where it says locked, does it say tampered?
