Default [Q] Help - all internal storage seems to be read only

This started a few days ago. The phone is running a GPE Rom, unlocked and s-on and randomly restarted on me Monday night. The same ROM has been on the phone for months. I have updates set to off and have not installed anything before this happened for days.

The device reboots when trying to change something in internal memory - ie uninstalling an app, or going to running processes in settings>apps

After the reboot any changes made between boots are gone. I can delete widgets, send messages, phone calls etc and all of them are gone. The phone boots in the same state as it was in at the first reboot from Monday.

I went into TWRP and tried to wipe and reinstall ROM - no dice. The device reboots into the last state. any rom install fails with a symlink error. I have tried to sideload adb and it fails. tried to restore and it fails. tried to fastboot oem reboot ruu and the device just restarts to the lockscreen. It is like there is no memory changing state at all. Tried to run ruu from hboot - no dice. reboots back to same lockscreen. I cannot seem to get the ruu exe to download from htc or I would try that.

I have also tried to flash the stock recovery to the phone to wipe and start from scratch - no dice. I am at a loss as to what to do. Also the phone reboots frequently when plugged into the computer - not nearly as much when standalone (although I can force the failure by looking at running apps or trying to uninstall an app)

If the uninstall doesn't reboot the phone, it shows the app is gone. Once I reboot it is back. I have searched and tried everything in the last two days. Help please

Run my bootable at&t ruu. Works perfect. if you are s-on, you will need to lock your boot loader. Please click thanks in my ruu thread if I helped you out

(bootloader) Lock successfully...
(bootloader) deinit_lcd
(bootloader) mipi display off
(bootloader) mdp_clock_off
(bootloader) disable_mmss_clk done
(bootloader) pll1_disable done
(bootloader) TZ_HTC_SVC_DISABLE ret = 536739196 (0x1FFDFD7C)
(bootloader) [CRITICAL] SPMI write command failure: cmd_id =

0, error
(bootloader) = 4
(bootloader) [INFO] Rebooting device

You can try it with the bootlader unlocked.

it just flashes zip then puts me back to the hboot screen - rebooting the phone takes me back to the GPE Rom

what command are you using to relock boot loader? Are you hitting "vol up to update?"

the ruu flashes zip - parsing then kicks me back to the screen where you can select fastboot/hboot - i have tried with the adb commands and get the same result.
