    Hello, I was simply clearing cache files on the applications on my phone (like facebook and youtube) when my phone all of a sudden froze and turned off.
    As I tried to turn it back on it just turns itself back off after giving the startup screen,
    I followed multiple steps on how I could resolve this issue and having the phone reset itself at HBOOT was the solution.

    My problem is that whenever I select an option at HBOOT , its just stuck doing nothing, I tried waiting for an hour and two but to no avail.

    My phone is an HTC model , and the battery was fully charged when it suddenly froze and turned off.

    sorry i was hoping @Hadron would chime in earlier....as i'm not up to date with htc phones any more. did you get it working? if not then i have some questions.......you said it does nothing with any hboot options. so does it just freeze? does it say anything? is it a black screen?

    I'm afraid I'm rather busy at the moment. I assume you are selecting "recovery" from hboot, in which catse that not working would be a bad sign. But that last question is the one I'd ask: what exactly happens when you select recovery? If it is just a black screen (maybe with a red triangle) that may be normal. For reasons I've never understood HTC hide the actual recovery menu, and you need to press a pair of buttons (power + volume up together as I remember) to bring up the menu. I say "as I remember" because I always used a custom recovery with my HTCs so only saw the stock one a couple of times!

    If that isn't the problem let us know and I can propose other options. But probably best to tag me (as @ocnbrze did) since I'm not going to be around much for the next few days at least.

    Basically the phone is just stuck on the screen as is , no change whatsoever , this could be a physical hardware problem so I just might get a new phone instead, sorry and thank you for your time

    No problem. Does it boot into hboot or fastboot mode when you restart while pressing the volume down key? My last HTC always started in fastboot mode, which is the one you want if you are to reflash the phone, but the one before would always start in hboot mode (they look very similar, apart from different menu items and the word hboot or fastboot at the top. If it's in hboot and won't switch to fastboot the only thing I can think is to try the same "reboot while pressing volume down" while connected to a computer.

    If the bootloader menu doesn't respond and you can't get into either recovery or fastboot mode I agree that you have no options.
