    My HTC ONE M8 (Non Rooted) failed the latest update to Android V6, it failed at 83% and is now stuck in the "Android Recovery" I've tried the "Wipe data/Factory Reset" and the "Wipe Cache Partition" however neither have worked. Anyone got any ideas? I've posted in the XDA forum but no response.

    Welcome to Android Central! See if the HTC One Toolkit can reinstall the firmware.

    If the toolkit doesn't do it, it's actually a liability issue with the carrier. Bring it into them and - in much more polite terms, of course - tell them "you broke it, you own it". My current phone was replaced for that reason - the update actually caused the radio to fail. The first solution they offered me, replacing the phone, was as far as they had to go. I took it.

    First, download and install the ROM according to your device. htc.com/us/support/rom-downloads.html
    Then download and install HTC sync manager. htc.com/us/software/htc-sync-manager/ This will help pair your device with the PC.
    Connect your HTC device to PC via USB cable. Turn on the phone and go to bootloader.
    Open HTC sync manager and dont do anything. Just leave it there.
    Then open the RUU app and proceed with updating/installing the ROMS.

    Hi, I bought this unlocked phone one month ago in Canada.
    Last week I was in Switzerland and I tried to upgrade to Android 6, then the Android Recovery screen appears every time I turn on the phone (I never see again the OS screen).

    I did a factory reset, not working.

    When going to the BootLoader, this is how the screen looks like:

    *** LOCKED ***

    As you can notice, I'm not an expert but I'd like to know what should I do to make it working again.

    Thanks very much for your help. Much appreciated.

    PS. if you need more info, just let me know !
    PS2. I have no problem to delete all the data/pics in my phone

    You might need to reflash the stock ROM. This can be done with a Windows PC, and getting the stock files. HTC has a small file library on their own site.

    Thanks for registering and welcome as a new member! Is it similar to the problem discussed in this other thread? Have you already tried those steps?


    I'll contact the moderators and see if they can move your thread to the M8 forum. Several users are reporting different problems after the update.

    Did you get the phone booted? You can try contacting HTC to see if they can assist with getting it fixed. If not, then you can try to load the ROM manually and see if it gets you booted. Make sure to download and attempt to install the one specific to you model M8: ROM Downloads for your HTC smartphone - Support | HTC United States
