    Hey Friends,
    Before I start, here are the technical details about my device:

    HTC ONE S/T-Mobile

    *** LOCKED ***
    Dec 14 2012, 17:10:57:-1

    Yesterday I read an article posted on Drippler about an OTA security update for the HTC ONE S from TMO. After reading the article I checked to see if there were any updates for my ONE S and did see the one referred to in the article. I should have just ignored this, but I went ahead and began the OTA update. After the update, my phone would never completely boot. The phone got caught in a "boot loop" and wouldn't stop cycling. After I forced a stop by getting in the boot loader, I had no option but to do a FACTORY RESET. End of Story??? NO! Now, the device looks as if it is starting up fine and everything looks good UNTIL I try turn on the WIFI. When I turn it on, the phone goes back into another boot loop and I have to start all over again. I took the phone across town and tried turning the WIFI on thinking it could have something to do with my home router, but as soon as I turned the WIFI switch on, voila!: boot loop. Since then, I've spent an enormous amount of time online trying to solve the issue, but haven't come across any solutions. If anyone knows of one, I would gladly appreciate it if you would share that with me.

    Don't know if this will work since I've never tried it, but you supposedly can get the download via USB cable connection. This may help to update the phone and possibly solve the issue. I got the update OTA over WIFI and have no issues.
    To download via USB cable (again I never tried this myself), go into settings > about > software updates and then press the "Settings" in the upper right corner and check "Use Wi-Fi or cable only". Now back out to the original "Settings" menu and towards the top - in the "Wireless & Networks" section - press the "... More" > Mobile network sharing > USB Network setting and use "Internet pass-through". That should allow you to use an internet connection from an attached PC.

    I hope the above works and the update will fix your issue!

    I called TMobile and they offered to give me LG Optimum L90 at no cost, which I took it. Also, XDA developers think you might want to unlock it and change the kernel
