I cant do relock, flash recovery, flash zip, sideload. I can boot to recovery(TWRP) but when I try to restore backup it will cut off and reboot in the middle. When I try install any rom it will be successful, but no ROM is installed(very quick flashing) . I cant see any files in system folder. I cant flash RUU because I cant relock.
In short way it showing all things looks like accepted by phone but it does nothing! Something like write protection.
And it showing only 3814MB instead 32GB on recovery.
I would be happy if someone has any good idea how to get it back to life.

Ok first, a few questions:
  1. can you post the output of fastboot getvar all except the imei and serialno ?
  2. What rom/version are you trying to flash?
  3. What backup? is it your personal backup, or one you have downloaded?
  4. What version of TWRP are you using?
  5. Is there any error code displayed after flashing the rom? Does it says "failed", "successful", "enable to mont /somehting" ??
  6. Do you have all you drivers installed correctly? When your phone is in bootloader mode, in windows device manager, what does it says?
  7. Do you have checked MD5 on your ROM/RECOVERY/BACKUP before flashing?

please answer all questions the best you can.

reflash twrp 2.6.3.3
MD5: 72067aefb69541d40e8420d7aa46408d

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader
then boot in recovery and wipe everything + format data.

push this rom to your phone:http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/guru_res...-62-401-1-zip/ this will take between 5-10 min (no progress bar just wait for adb to give you back the prompt)
md5: 6444b41a1f332f31345d5ead674382d7

Code:
adb push guru_reset_m7_3.62.401.1.zip /sdcard/
when the transfer is complete, in twrp select "install" then select "guru_reset_m7_3.62.401.1.zip"

then follow instruction in Aroma GUI

report back if it works or not.

good luck

It doesnt work.
I can push files to sdcard. but when I do wipe, all files from media will be deleted except those which already was there. So I cant delete insertcoin zip from sd and I cant delete backups. It looks like its memory is write protected.
When I try install something it all looks ok but it does nothing. Just reboot...white htc screen....reboot to recovery no changes done at all. It is like frozen.
Command fastboot reboot-bootloader doesnt work. It will boot to splash then back to recovey but not to bootloader.
Comand fastboot oem lock does nothing.

Any other ideas?

It doesnt look good. Maybe you could try to restore using the ruu, not sure if it will make a difference.
