Default [FIXED - Post #19] Soft-Bricked?

So today I received a HTC One from a friend and something is going really wrong with the device. He bought it as used and I found out that it was already S-OFF/Unlocked BL/Rooted but we wanted to change the ROM. I tried to flash SlimKat but I kept getting error 7 and after a google search I saw that the problem was caused by outdated recovery (had an older version of CWM). Then I proceeded to install the latest CWM from the official website and after the installation I kept getting this error:

While trying to fix that error we realised that the device was HTC One J and not HTC One. TL;DR I fixed it and while trying to install a ROM I got this error:

Notice at the end: This package is a for "m7wlj" devices; this is a "dlx"

I searched on Google about dlx and I found that it is the Verizon version of HTC One (http://www.androidcentral.com/verizon-htc-dlx).
What the hell is going on with this device? What is the actual source of it? Verizon or Japan??

I forgot to mention.. after updating the CWM version I get bootloop on bootloader and can no longer boot on OS.

maybe this can answer it for you http://www.droid-life.com/tag/dlx/

also have you tried twrp recovery rather than cwm, if it is the Verizon then you will need the Verizon version of twrp, normal version wont work.

Update: We contacted the guy he bought the phone from and he said he bought it from Japan already unlocked.

I've download slimkat verizon version just to try it out and now I get a different error:

Thank you, I've installed TWRP from there and I get this in the log:

E: Unable to mount '/cache'

And also I can't see the device in "adb devices" in order to sideload the ROM.

boot to bootloader "FastbootUSB" and then fastboot erase cache

you may need to update your adb and fastboot and possibly your drivers once done, enter recovery, main screen only and try adb devices again, if it see's it now then adb push romname.zip /sdcard/
