This is a new error code on me and I'd say if a full phone reboot doesn't work then HTC technical support might be your best bet.

Is the phone usable and you can get to the setting screen or is it bricked?

Is it stuck in recovery mode or are you asking how to get into recovery mode? Shut the phone off and turn it on holding down the power and volume down button when turning on the phone. If you're stuck inside Recovery mode and can't get out of it, try doing a hard reboot (Hold down the power button til it reboots the phone) If this doesn't work, HTC support might be your only option. Hope you get your problems sorted.

Just to clarify, this happened after you tried installing the 5.0 update OTA (Over the Air)?
