I flashed my phone with twrp, tried to enter recovery mode through the bootloader, but now it's on endless boot, how can I fix that?

In download mode:

hTC download mode

*** UNLOCKED ***
htc_v36bml_uhl PVT S-ON
LK-1.01.0000
RADIO-UNKNOWN
OpenDSP-UNKNOWN
OS-1.16.401.1
Aug  2 2016, 19:11:15(788931)

[options here]

Detecting smart card...
Reboot to ftm mode failed due to NOT_FIND_SMART_IO

In bootloader:

*** Software status: Modified ***
*** Unlocked ***
HTC_V36BML 128 SHIP S-ON

CID-HTC__A07
LK-1.01.0000
OS-1.16.401.1

When i select to boot to recovery mode, appears message, which says 'This build is for development purposes only', after that's boot freezes. OEM and bootloader unlocked, USB debugging enabled

  • 'This build is for development purposes only is shown by the bootloader. It is simply a notification that the bootloader has been unlocked and thus the system may be modified/compromised. This warning is important for people you buy a used phone.

  • flash working twrp (1, 2) and reboot straightforward into recovery right after flashing, otherwise your custom recovery will be replaced with stock recovery
