Help: Recover deleted contacts on One M8

Yesterday, I flashed an new ROM to my HTC One M8 with CyanogenMod Installer app. I followed the exactly as a tutorial video did. But the process failed at the last step during ROM installation,maybe caused by some network error. When I powered on my device today, all of the data including phone contacts, SMS and media files were gone, like a factory rest.

Does anyone know how to get the data back? Is there any chance to successfully recover it? Thanks

With HTC

announcing a One M9 device in March, it honestly does not even matter when Lollipop update will complete as M9 will have it out of the box. Many M7 and M8 owners will be looking to upgrade.

However, I'd rather wait and have HTC and carriers do the roll-out correctly rather than quickly.

Fool me twice, shame on me

I would be waiting for this update if HTC hadn't screwed all the Droid Incredible II users out of ICS. That is when I stopped buying HTC. Samsung was great with the S3 and S4! I could not have been happier with my Samsung experience. Now the wife and I carry the OnePlus One. Even though it looks like they will also miss this 90 day window, Cyanogen is far superior to Sense.

Sprint finally catching up to T-mobile.

T-mobile has had this for years. It is good that Sprint has finally caught up to them. Good for Sprint!

One downfall

Looks like there is one major downfall with this. It's on Sprint. So that makes it basically a useless brick.

Is the HK edition really using a different DAC?

I thought the HTC One M8 supported FLAC playback already. Is there really a different DAC in the HK edition or are the differences just software and bundled headphones along with exclusive color? What is the DAC in the normal M8 if it's different than the one in the HK edition? It is unfortunate that DAC specifications/chip information are not ever listed or available in spec lists for any phone unless HTC specifically decides to mention it like with the HK edition.

VZ Navigator

After reading that VZW no longer charges for VZ Navigator, I decided to check out their Web site. While the first month is free, they charge $4.99/month thereafter, so it's definitely not free.

Unless, of course, this is something special with the HTC One.

Camera

Thank you Eric. Great review.

Whoever says this phone doesn't take good pics is full of it. I own this phone now and I can honestly say I'm quite pleased with the results.

Yes, I played around with a GS5 at the store and saw pics taken with it online and I agree the GS5 takes slightly better pics but to me the difference is only marginal.

The One's camera excels the GS5 in other areas. I think it's sort of a trade off you know. But sites like The Verge complaining about how bad the One's camera is are full of $hit, IMO. Samsung fanboys are also hating with their overrated ugly plastic machine as well. Sorry

HTC really went all out with this phone. It is a stunning piece of art. Only the iPhone beats it in terms of build quality...

FM Radio Removed AGAIN

Thanks Verizon, way to go and disable a feature in the hardware to try and force us to use data over your network.

Really classy move.

Great Review Eric!

Phone Scoop is my primary go to site for news and reviews. This review was again another fine coverage editorial.

I do feel that Eric's preference for metal phones as become adherent and obvious in these articles. However, the basis of nature in what the devices he tests, encompasses articulate hands-on usage.

While the HTC still lacks what I feel is more important to everyday needs or possible scenerios over physical attributes, HTC is on its way of regaining my business. It needs to address the accessibility of the battery. Even with today's smartphones, I'm still seeing a great number of devcies suffering battery issues. Not surprising considering that the current battery is based on 30 year old technology. Knowing first hand of t...

Windows Phone Please

There are so many Android handsets on the market, nothing really stands out. As nice as this handset is, If they'd wanted to start something, they should've packaged Windows Phone in this wonderful piece of hardware.

Why is it so hard for Samsung to produce something this nice?

Not the biggest fan of the brushed aluminum (reminds me of my Note 2's craptastic back finish), but at least it

1) Is Real Metal
2) Doesn't look like a Band-Aid

Still needs removable battery

I'm glad HTC has added SD capabilities back, but can they please give us the removable battery back.

I have friends who bring extra batteries to the field with them for the Samsung smartphones because we do not have any plug ins. Just so they can have a phone that lasts a 3 days

My impressions

I just made the move to the M8 from the DNA. I'm happy but worth noting my following caveats: Hot spot and WiFi activation are slow as molasses. And Blink-feed in Sense 6.0 as compared to Sense 5.0 may offer more content options but the missing clock and the missing automated stops makes it's usability rather lame. I've turned it off.

HTC One M8 battery drain in low signal areas?

I had an htc one and loved it BUT it had one problem. In low signal areas the battery drained really fast. Combine that and slow charge speed and I had to get rid of it.

In your review did you notice faster battery drain in low signal areas?

Global network

This seems to be a great phone to die for. Could someone please confirm if this phone with Sprint as a carrier would work overseas, I heard the Verizon and TMobile version work globally. Thanks Smile

Main camera specs?

I have a feeling they haven't improved the camera from 4MP, because they explicitly don't specify what it is (thought the HTC website states the FRONT camera is 5MP). It would be absurd, but HTC has this thing for making a FANTASTIC product except for any one random thing...

Let me add that I really want to see HTC succeed! For years I was a huige fan, and had the HTC phones, from the T-Mo SDA through the G1, MT3G, Nexus 1, Droid Inc, etc.

However in 2014 you just CAN'T put 4MP cameras on a high end phone when all other premium phones are 8MP or better, and even el-cheapos have 5MP. I know, the sensor is bigger so the pixels collect more light. But most of us aren't taking photos in the dark, and if we do, a little post processing fixe...

ONE again? really.

The phone looks great, I would love to have it, but why the F#$^@ is the name ONE? maybe its for marketing purposes or its just dumb. HTC has several phones with the name ONE, (X, S, V, etc), HTC should at least named it HTC two or HTC one II, I'd eveb be OK if oficial name was HTC One M8, but oh well.
