I have an HTC One M7 that drains its battery even when it's completely off (have tried changing the battery twice with a new one at an independent shop, so it's not an issue with the battery).
Anyway, the problem I am having now is that the phone drained its battery so much that the battery went into lithium sleep. Phone won't turn on even when plugged in. No charging led. Is there anyway I can revitalize the battery without taking apart the phone? I just want the phone to turn on so I can wipe it and sell it as faulty on eBay.
PS: Have tried leaving the phone connected to the charger for 24 hours and even putting it in the freezer overnight. No dice.
I know this is a weird and obscure request but does anyone have the files I can use to do so? Dev-host is dead and all the Mega links I've been able to find don't work.
The phone is currently running stock 5.0.2 with Sense and has bootloader 1.61.0000 (not sure if this is same as HBOOT). Not sure what firmware it has (maybe 7.17.666.52 is the firmware?). I've read about the touchscreen not working if firmware is not downgraded.
I know for the 4.2.2 GPE conversion I need RUU-HTC_One_GE-2.14.1700.15.zip.
Hello guys I have this smartphone from HTC. It’s on 6.0 Marshmallow ( Sense 7.0) with Stock European ROM, S-ON. It’s probably SIM Locked. I want to unlock it. Got 8-digit unlock key. But there is a problem. Factory sim reader was damagem so I replaced him with oem one. But when I try to put SIM card there from non-supported carrier, phon won’t even recognize it. Any SIM I inserted was not even recognized. In the tray I see no signal and SIM icon with exclamation mark. This icon is still there even when there is no SIM present and I restart the phone. Basically, I want to use my sim in there. When I try to use command ##756...blah blah or #0111*CODE# phone shows connection problem or wrong mmi. Can somebody help me please? Thank you
EDIT: When eject the flex cable of the SIM reader with aim in it, phone says that phone was unable to read the SIM card.
I got an HTC One M9 Today - australian sold one installed TWRP and then went to go install magisk to root it via patching the boot.img but that ended up fucking things and now it wont boot and I forgot to nandroid backup beforehand it just stays on the HTC logo i can get to recovery, download and bootloader modes tho just not android itself how do yall reckon I could just fully factory reset the phone? I was gonna download a TWRP backup - but the one for my phone isnt available and the ROM from htc's website is unavailable too
So I installed accubattery on my friend's old m9 to figure out how worn out the battery had become. After a week or so I checked the results and the estimated health is a staggering 1600 mAh. The phone doesn't even reach 2 hours of sot with normal usage!
Anyone else here using the app? I wanna see how bad the health is compared to other m9's
For a while now I have been unable to log into my google account in the play store on my HTC One M9. I've tried clearing my cache and data for the app but it hasn't fixed the problem. I can't log into my google app either but I know my account details are correct. Is there anyway to fix it or is a factory reset the only way?
My current M9 is starting to have weak speakers and battery and I would like to get it fixed by someplace responsible. (Not CPR!)
My spare M9 has had software issues causing it to choke on updates chronically and have messaging issues etc. to the point it is not reliable. I would like to find someone to directly upload (or whatever the term is) the latest OS, which I discovered is a small nightmare if it won't do OTA updates.
I've got my OriGinal M9 back from crappy chain workshop with new screen and battery. It will work for me in the meantime so I can wait a while for service. Tough bastard survived a failed dismount from a forklift but it's kinda ugly after the hack shop bent it back into place to install the screen.
Only other option I can think of is to find a new phone with equal awesomeness and IR blaster to upgrade to but that's a last resort.
TL;DR: Crazy person has 3 M9 devices and wants to find a reliable repair and trustworthy repair shop.

Pardon my lack of knowledge on rooting devices and all the related things. This is my first time attempting to root a device and I am having a lot of trouble understanding how to go about things. Through my research, I'm finding a lot of different ways to do things and I want a direct opinion on my process so I don't mess up my phone. (Through as much research as I could) My end goal is to have TWRP flashed to my phone, root my device and install a custom ROM. My understanding is that I first need to unlock the bootloader, flash TWRP, install SuperSU, then flash the custom ROM. I won this phone from a raffle 3 years ago and I'm trying to root from a Windows 10 laptop.
I have the TWRP and SuperSU files at the ready and have also installed Kingo root. I enabled USB debugging and allowed the bootloader to be unlocked in developer settings. I tried to boot into download and bootloader and successfully recognized my device, but when trying to use "fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.2.3-0-hima.img" it gave me the error message "FAILED (remote: cannot flash this partition in s-on state)" and "FAILED (remote: 9 RU_SECURITY_FAIL recovery and bootloader isn't BL_UNLOCKE)"
I'd assumed my phone was already unlocked but that's obviously not the case. Doing some more research I found a lot of people needed to get a bootloader unlock from HTCdev.
Is this what I need to do now to continue? What about this "s-on state" how and do I need to turn it off? Will unlocking the bootloader wipe my device? Could I just use the "root" button in the Kingo root main app? Can anyone verify my theoretical steps and give quick notes on how I should be doing them properly?
