I tried installing several RUUs but when they don't failed with the "incorrect RUU" error, they just don't go past the "getting header 1/5)" step of the process.
I have explored several threads with issues that might look like mine, but they end up not being. I will post my getvar info and the names of the RUUs I've been using hoping to find someone kind enough to give me a hand.

Thanks in advance.
Post a screenshot of your bootloader
The RUU's wont install because your S-On and it will only allow same version or higher
the RUU you require is this one...
However since your bootloader is unlocked, you could flash a recovery and root from there..
Put the recovery in your adb folder and from there
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-184.108.40.206-m7.img
fastboot erase cache
then enter recovery and make a backup of your rom.
when you exit TWRP, you will be prompted to root your device
