I have been unable to find a clear solution to something that has been plaguing my new Evo 4g LTE. What I have: HBOOT 2.09 I was hoping to try CyanogenMod 10, and I even flashed the CM10 boot.img file using fastboot. After trying it, and finding my touchscreen to be unresponsive, I read that other users have had similar issues when using the most up to date firmware from HTC (version 3.16.651.3). After being unable to find a fix for the touchscreen issue, I attempted to simply restore the backup I made using TWRP to just go back to the Sense ROM. At this point, my restore attempt failed, and I could no longer boot past the HTC splash screen. After reading some other posts, I decided to try locking my bootloader again to see if that would make a difference (it didn't). THEN, TWRP recovery would not open, I could access HBOOT, then when I press recovery, it would just reload HBOOT and do nothing else. I read that you need an unlocked bootloader to flash recovery again, so I simply ran the fastboot unlock command again, which worked, but now I appear to be soft-bricked (cannot get past the HTC splash screen). So my question is this: how can I get back to HBOOT when all I can do is see the splash screen? TL;DR - I messed up somewhere, and turned my brand new Evo into a paperweight, and am desperately seeking help.
