Hey guys,
I need some help with this phone, I'm an amateur with phones so i've never rooted it or tried customizing it anything like that. It's been just a little less than a year since I got it and for the first time I did a system update on it because a notification gave me that option to, and just 3 days after the update, my phone ran out of batteries, died, tried charging it and turning it on again, but it's stuck at boot screen, and after approx. 20 secs, the screen goes black again.
I held the vol. down button+power button, to select the option to perform a factory reset, it doesnt work and just goes to the htc logo boot screen, then black.
I've also tried going to recovery and reboot the system, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition, none of these worked either.
However, there are a bunch of yellow writing at the bottom of the recovery screen, which I hope will provide some info to what the problem might be cus I don't understand any of it.

E:missing bitmap oem_unlock_bg (Code -1)
E:missing bitmap oem_unlock_bg_yes (Code -1)

No, I'm with Rogers. But the thing is, I got the phone out of country when I was on vacation, I wont be going back until a couple of months, and I really hope I can figure this out asap.
