    Root Droid DNA stuck in Boot Loop

    A friend of mine asked if I could fix her DNA, it is stock, non rooted S-On. I can get it into boot loader and fastboot, but it will not go into recovery, it just kicks me back to the splash screen in a boot loop. Any help would be appreciated. Note: I know very little about HTC phones

    Latest software update for DNA (late September/early October rollout)

    Looks like we've gotten another software update. This is upgrading to 4.09.605.5 and seems to be security minded. Looks like it closes a root loophole, does something with Softpay (formerly ISIS) and some sort of wifi indicator tweak. Has anyone gotten it yet? It was about 180 MB and...
