Default [Q] HTC One X - Impossible to install custom ROM

Hey there!
I'm pretty new to the Android platform. I've been on iOS for many years.
I already flashed a custom firmware on a Moto G, which worked fine. (SlimKat)
I thought about doing the same thing with my HTC One X.

GSM version (Model: PJ83100)

Current device state:
*** TAMPERED ***
*** UNLOCKED ***
Nov 26 2012, 18:37:14:-1

Unlike the Moto G Bootloader, I'm unable to erase any partition but the cache. Example:
./fastboot erase system
erasing 'system'...
FAILED (remote: not allowed)

I am not able to boot into the OS or the recovery partition anymore, so they have probably been wiped. When I reboot the device, it's either a boot loop or it just shuts down.

I already tried to flash CWM and TWRP. Each of those were successful, at least according to the terminal... Unfortunately, same thing happens when the phone reboots.
I also tried to flash SlimKat with the "./fastboot flash zip" command, even if it isn't supposed to work (I believe).
In despair, I flashed the boot image from the ROM but still without result.

If anyone knows how to fix this, it would be really appreciated.
All the posts related to the issue did not help me in any ways.
Thank you!
