    The title says it all. My M8 has the bootloader unlocked, it's S-off and rooted with Teamwin recovery installed. I started dicking around with it, and messed it up. I went to HBOOT and factory reset. I now have no OS, so obviously, my phone won't start up. I appear to be really stuck. If you guys help me and talk me through this, I'll stop dicking around. :-/

    When you are in Teamwin recovery, plug in the USB cable and copy any custom ROM (i recommend android revolution) and then flash it. That's assuming you can still access Teamwin

    Ok. I am in Teamwin right now. It's the only thing that does work. Anyway, I just want to flash my stock bootloader. I went to HTC and downloaded it. Do I need to get it to my phone and run it from there? Or can I adb it somehow? Either way, how do I get the computer to recognize my phone again?

    I downloaded the Kernel Source Code not the bootloader. The stock recovery I need is 1.12.502.18. Where can I snag this file?

    Someone one xda posted a link to it here:


    Once you have the file you can use adb push to send the file to the sdcard directory on your phone and flash it from there.

    If this recovery isn't the one you need, I'm sure it can be found in another thread on xda.

    Ok. I got the Nandroid backup recovery.emmc.win file pushed to the phone. Now, I have a red triangle in the middle of the screen and I can't get to recovery.

    I'm now back in recovery. To what directory does adb push the files? I can't find it to install it.

    FUBAR no longer. I downloaded a ROM and installed it. I can now get on my phone to re-install the stock recovery. Thanks for the help, Raziel.
