    Hi guys,
    I'm new to the forum as a member but i often look on here to stay up to date with everything that's going on in the HTC One world!

    Basically, EE were taking so long to release KK 4.4 and Sense 6 that i decided i would unlock & root my HTCONE M7 myself. Apart from being a bit of an ***** and thus taking way longer to do it than i should have taken, it all went fine. I downloaded the files for 4.4 and managed to load them onto my phone no problem,except that when i tried to start my phone it would get stuck on the bootloader/reboot loop and the four little "kitkat" cirlces would just stay in the middle of the screen.

    Naturally when i got home from work i tried to stop this, and so reconed that i just had to delete all the data on the phone (in recovery mode). Woe of woes, I ended up formatting everything- including internal memory. Didn't think anything of it until i went to reload the roms etc and found my phone was f***ed.

    I've spent hours looking for a solution but cant seem to find one. Now my phone just stays on the white HTC startup screen without any other signs of life. I can still access bootloader/recovery/fastboot etc, but my phone doesnt show up in "My computer", and while it shows up in "Devices and printers" its always as an unknown device. MTP usb doesnt work either, even though all my drivers are up to date (as far as im aware- ive downloaded HTCsynctwice just to make sure).

    Any help would be VERY appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Olly

    Looks to me like the nand backup was made with CWM recovery and it isnt compatible with twrp. So either flash CWM recovery or if he has a twrp nand backup use it
