    I will apologies in advance as I have only just come from an iphone. And I did search online with only one thread found regarding my question, alas for a different device.

    I got the HOX+, unlocked the device without much difficulty. Then I went to root it with rootboot v5. I seem to be stuck in the HTC screen on the device. It is still plugged in and it appears I am waiting for the lockscreen to come up.

    The command screen says this:
    < waiting for device >
    sending 'boot' (5388 KB)... OKAY [ 0.873s]
    writing 'boot'... INFOFormat partition LNX done
    OKAY [ 0.312s]
    finished. total time: 1.185s
    erasing 'cache'... OKAY [ 0.140s]
    finished. total time: 0.141s
    finished. total time: 0.213s
    Press Enter when you can see the lockscreen
    Press any key to continue . . .
    ...so I still have the device plugged into the computer, with the HOX+ "HTC quietly brilliant" screen present for about 15 minutes now.

    Any help is appreciated. I'm pretty sure I dont want to pull the USB cord and brick the device.

    I guess Ill take the dog for a walk now and see what it says when I get back.

    ...so walked the dog; overall it has been about 40-50 minutes since I "rooted" my HOX+", I am starting to get nervous
