    My wife and I both have non-rooted TBs which started experiencing random reboots after the OTA. We went to the store and they ordered us two new ones. They'll be here Tuesday.

    Yesterday my wife's TB rebooted, and got stuck at the HTC logo. She was unable to turn it off. I did a battery pull, and again, stuck at the HTC logo. I swapped my battery since hers was low, nothing. It's dead, Jim.

    We called the store and they wouldn't swap it since one is already on order. My wife is a doctor, and being without a phone until Tuesday is not an option. So I loaned her mine. (Sigh).

    I tried reflashing the latest signed ruu I got from another thread. I downloaded it onto my SD card, swapped cards, and I was able to hboot and the install seemed to go fine. However, it had no effect. It still gets stuck in the same spot.

    Tried factory reset, recovery, nothing. Every time I reboot I get stuck at the logo and I need to pull the battery.

    Out of curiosity more than anything else, any other things I can try?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a fault in the machine not the software.
    Sorry but I think you have to replace it.
