(I'm assuming you're missing drivers which is why I'm asking you for this info).
It's a HTC ONE S that I got and since I hadn't used android b4 I instead of doing a system update I updated some kind of CID that was on the phone which locked the phone in to "this build is for developers only..."
trying to bring it back to stock installing an RUU failed for some reason(the RUU being the one already in use since the phone is S-ON)
fastboot and adb drivers are installed, I can find my device in fastboot but not adb. enabling USB debugging should fix this but I can't enter the phone while it's looping and I've found no way of enabling it via cmd
this is what the phone shows while in boot:
VLE PVT SHIP S-ON RL
RADIO-1.11.50.05.28 (RUU_Ville_U_JB_45_S_HTC_Europe_3.16.401.8_Radio_1 . 11.50.05.28_10.27.50.08L_release_301814_signed_2_4 is the RUU I tried running)

and correct I'm trying to unlock bootloader through htcdev then repeating the process and locking the loader, running the RUU again... if this doesn't work I guess I can go S-OFF (but then I need USB debugging) and picking any RUU see if that works
and prior to getting this phone I had never touched an android so I have 0 experience
I have downloaded the SDK and htc sync
tried following these guides:
and this is my original asking thread trying to get my phone back to stock:
