    Hello all;
    I don't know what to do. I wonder if any of you can really help me. I hope i did not brick my phone. I had a rooted phone with cleanrom ICSE 3.6 it all worked perfect until yesterday. The phone goes into an infinite loop, it shuts it self off and then it turns on. What can I do. How would i go about starting again from the beginning. after rooting the phone. what do i do next do i have to flash the boot.img again i wonder if I do everything over will it fix the problem. Please help, I'm really new at this so please consider writing in idiot proof language hehehe.

    Try booting it without the back cover or cover and sim card. Then check that it is in cdma or lte. If not that is your problem. Change the setting and then try it. Chris

    You could also relock and then flash the current RUU... Make sure to RELOCK!!! or you can permanently brick!!!

    Boot into hboot and use ADB to issue the command "fastboot oem lock", then reboot into hboot and make sure is says "Re-locked"... then go through the instructions on the above link you posted that will take you back to Verizon official stock, or use this one: [Exclusive Download] Full RUU Build 4.03.605.2 For The HTC Rezound which is the current global mode leak.

    Note that if you are S-OFF, meaning you did the "wire trick", you don't need to relock.

    It most likely means you were running a ROM that was based on the 4.3.605.2 leaked firmware, without going S-OFF the only thing you can do is is flash the 4.3.605.2 Global Mode RUU leak I linked above, the 3.14 version won't work.

    I am not saying this will fix your problem, but installing it should put you at a "known state" of a good software load, so then you can determine if the issue is hardware is software.

    Verify the file is on the root of the SD card and it is named exactly "PH98IMG.zip", case-sensitive, and beware the Windows "double zip" issue because it sometimes hides extensions and if you add a .zip to the file the phone will see it as .zip.zip and fail. I know it works, done it several times. You are really close, don't worry, it will get there...

    Hmmm... I have flashed many a Rezound with the RUU and never had a problem, several reboots are normal but I guess if it dies, it died...

    Stock and rooted is the best way to go in my opinion, then use Wireless Tether. If I was going to go to a ROM it would probably be ViperRez 1.0.3 or Newts OnE XxX RLS 5.1.1, if you are into an AOSP ROM I have heard good things about (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ v1.9 LINARO!. But to be honest, HowardZ or one of the other members here might be able to give a better recommendation, I haven't really done anything with custom ROMs on the Rezound.

    This is a common misconception of rooting, but the answer is no, rooting by itself will not give you better battery life. The only thing rooting really does is gives you and applications read-write access to the parts of the file system that you cannot normally access by calling a program called 'su' (which incidentally is short for Switch User, not superuser) that is part of the SuperUser or SuperSU package. What this does allow though is for you to remove bloat stuff that can be draining the battery, although in ICS it isn't necessary to do anymore just for that in most cases, since stuff can be disabled natively.

    Rooting the Rezound can give you other benefits though, like being able to remove HTCLinkifyDispatcher... remember being able to open YouTube links in the YouTube app? Well, clean that out and you can again! There are a ton of other things root can give you as well, search in the Play Store for "root" and you will find a bunch of apps that can use root access to stuff you didn't think was possible.
