Hi
I unlocked my phone - HTC One (m7) using the HTCDev.com/bootloader.
Fastboot says its ***UNLOCKED***
Ive been trying to "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" - Ive tried TWRP and Clockwork, both just sit at: "sending 'recovery' (xxxx KB)... ".
"fastboot erase cache
erasing 'cache'... OKAY" and "fastboot reboot-bootloader" all work fine so I know its connecting and working.

below is Getvar all data.
Can anyone suggest why this might be happening?
I'm using Ubuntu atm

cheers

In your first post delete the imei and serialno from the getvar!

Do you have USB Debugging enabled in Settings -> Developer options?
Is Fast boot unchecked in Settings -> Power?
Is your TWRP renamed to recovery and is it in the same directory that Ubuntu is currently focused?

went through the process again this morning, following advice and steps - worked fine today.

That came up after to flashed your recovery. There is a way to remove the tampered flag, but I'm not sure about the unlocked flag.

Here's what I used to remove tampered:

You need to be s off to remove tampered. It's not really a problem unless u need to return your phone for warranty
