    After the update to 8.1 yesterday my husbands HTC 8x will not boot up. If you plug it in it will boot up to the HTC splash screen, the turn off and reboot again to the htc screen. If I take it off the charger while its on the htc screen it will just die automatically and will not boot up until I put it back on the charger where it boot loop again.

    I have tried every possible button combo I've found or thought of, none of them work. not sure if there is any software out there that can help me get it working again.

    Anyone with any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance.

    According to my husband the battery it was not, but he plugged it in overnight to top it off. Then yesterday morning he took it off the charger went to unlock it, noticed it wasn't on, tried to turn it on and it wouldn't. So then he plugged it back into to the charger and that's when it started to reboot continually.

    I use to love HTC phones but as of lately they all seem to be bad. My 8x did the same I tried everything I eventually sent it in to an HTC repair place and got it fixed they charged me $85

    Search on xda developers, there is a way to flash HTC 8X to the European firmware. Check if that solution would work for you, if not then i guess you'll have to contact HTC

    For my, my only solution was to make a long press of the power button (about 15 sec.)

    Mine did something similar earlier in the year. I still believe it was water damage as I'd been on Scout camp in the pouring rain, but the water detector wasn't triggered and HTC fixed it for free. Their two year warranty is really good. It's worth getting in touch with them.
