White HTC SCREEN BOOT Loop. Phone restarts itself
I have a Sprint HTC evo 3d flashed and workign for boost mobile. I was using it yesterday for skype. Went to work doing my 16 hour shift last night. I came home and my screen was Frozen on skype. I pressed the power button and i got the restart scren but i couldnt click on restart. I couldnt click on the Home button either. I took out the battery and replaced it.
Now its stuck in a boot loop. It starts up, White htc screen for a few seconds, Restarts itself, goes right back to the white HTC screen and redoes that Loop over and over. I held down the VOL D button and poewr button and attempted a factory reset. It does the same thing. HTC boot loop. Took it to my local boost mobile store that unlocked and flashed and rooted my phone for me in the first place and he did a Hard factory reset from his computer and it does the same thing. He told me sorry but there isnt any software in the phone i cant fix this.
I called HTC and they said it sounds like the phone is a empty shell atm. There is no software on the phone so it doesnt know what to load up or how to do a factory reset. He told me to hold down the VOL D and power again and do a factory reset. Same issue HTC boot loop. Told me to click Recover, Same thing boot loop. Then he said click on FASTBOOT/BOOTLOADER and hook it up to the cmoputer and see if it shows up in my device manager. it says ANDRIOD 1.0. Thats it. Cant go in and use it as USB storage. He then advised me i can send the phone in and they can reload the factory software on the phone but ut would cost me 275 dollors. I told him at that price i can buy a Galexy s2 or s3. Then he told me to call my local SPRINT STORE and see if they can load the ORIGINAL software for me.
I then called my local sprint repair store. I spoke with a gentleman that was the district repair person and was the only one that repaired anything in this area. He told me most like yes i have to have the original software loaded on the phone. He could do it but hes going on vacation and cannot do anything until he comes back after the christmas holidays. He also advised me since im friends with a coworker of his to come to this website. There will be the software i need with step by step instruction. I just need to laod the software on the Micro sd and take it from there. Im actually glad i found this site due to the fact is i been wanting to start flashing phones for alot of people i know including myself. I use to do iphones, xboxes, playstations, wii's ect so i have some basic knowlege but its been years.
I registered for this site and i cant find a thread with the software i need with the step by step instructions. Is there anyone can direct me to exactly where i need to be. idk if i have to flash it from the beginning with a custom rom. I perfer a custom rom becuase im going to be using it for boost mobile any how. If so could i get that information i need and step by step instructions I use boost mobile no idea if i need GSM or CDMA. Would be awesome Thank you very much for even taking the time to read this
