Bite the bullet, fastboot flash TWRP 2.6 permanently, and yes, it works! Back to rooted and will not be doing any more OTAs
I'm writing this in case anyone else was using a temp recovery and finds that it stops working after the update, just to let you know that a proper install did work.
Also, if anyone is thinking of getting the OTA 4.2.2 update but is interested in S-Off, do not
return to locked & S-On before running the update. To quote these prescient words:
The 4.2.2 update comes with a new bootloader (1.54 in my case), and revone cannot handle it (yet?). So if you are S-On and accept this update then you won't be able to S-Off using revone, at least for a while. I've not checked the other S-Off method. If you are S-Off when the update is applied, you will still be S-Off afterwards. So right now, if you think you might be interested in S-Off, do it before updating to 4.2.2.
I have a similar problem.
I have yet to root this phone (I'm on Three UK carrier, so I assume the GSM method is correct) although the bootloader is unlocked via the HTCDev method.
I recently updated the phone to 4.2.2 and another small update afterwards.
I tried booting the temp image and got the same frozen bootloader issue as hadron above. Tempted to flash the permanent recovery but would like to take a backup of the original first if possible in case anything goes wrong, so I can flash it back.
Is this possible?
Apologies if the answer is found in this thread, I'm new to Android and have read this up and down a few times.
