    Always remember this about bricking, if you can get you phone to do something, anything, it's not bricked and can be restored.

    If it helps anyone here, I used the instructions found in [GUIDE] Workaround for attaining S-OFF (for Windows 8.1. users) - xda-developers to s-off mine when it was 1.55.

    What carrier are you using? What Recovery are you using? What ViperOne ROM did you try to install? Did you come from another ROM to ViperOne ROM? If so, do you have a nandroid?
    These answers are required determine what might have to be done to get your phone pack to working?

    Why are you worried about being/getting S-Off at this point? Firewater can s-off 1.56

    [ROM][5/17]viperROM One v1.1.0 | 1.29.651.10 | Fast, Stable, viperControl, and more! - xda-developers in tht link u will see the Viper rom i used i was coming from Cyanogenmod 11 nightly os, i'm from jamaica so my carrier is Digicel, the reason why im trying to s-off is cause i read in a thread that to get a stock rom on i would have to have s-off to flash the recovery .img file. Also i did back up with CWM however i cant mount the phone to access the usb storage at this point for some unknown reason. So basically i am of the impression tht a RUU can revive it but i need to be s-off, btw thanks for taking the time out to even answer my post.

    well lets see if we can get your phone working. Did you have a different Rom on you phone before you tried to flash the Viper Rom? If yes, do you have a nandroid of that Rom? If you have a nandroid of a different Rom, you should reflash it so you can either stay with that Rom or, have a solid starting platform for flashing a Viper Rom.

    If no to everything above, what Recovery do you have flashed on your phone? And, can you get to that recovery? If you haven't tried, hold down the power button and the volume down button until it loads into bootloder. Then use the down button to highlight recovery, now press the power button to boot into recovery. If you can get to this point, you should see the Rom(s) you downloaded. Which Viper Rom do you have downloaded? All Viper Roms have the desired TWRP Recovery that you can flash before flashing the Viper Rom. Its within the file under the Viper Rom. Open that file and you will see the TWRP Recovery. Flash that Recovery (TWRP 2.6.3.3) and when it's done, do not exit Recovery. Use the on screen back button and go back to where the Rom location. Now you can flash the Rom. I recommend that with the issues you've had doing a full wipe install.

    good luck

    Google Firewater S-Off. I've heard it works with hboot 1.56. Not sure revone even works with 1.56.

    I'm not s-off but I have read about it. On PC, download HTC sync manager from HTC Web site. This also downloads required drivers needed. You have to delete HTC sync manager from the PC. Just HTC sync, the drivers will stay on PC. HTC sync gets in the way of the s-off process. In the Google search, go to the xda sites and there are some great instructions for s-off.
