Also, I take no offense from your warning. I wasn't going to try to mess with it any more after I got my the stock OS and my phone unlocked for asian networks. I really appreciate all the help
There's no point in attempting any fastboot command until you can get the PC to recognise the device. Are you using a usb 2.0 port, and the original HTC usb cable? What does it say on the screen of your phone when you connect it while it's in the bootloader? It should say fastboot, fastboot usb, or fastboot ac.

Tpank, use the snipping tool on your computer to post a screen capture of your fastboot adb folder. its the folder that you are running the command prompt from (or should be).

BTW thanks Timaaaaa for helping my friend out. When I unlocked his phone we didn't know he would have the opportunity to move out of the US to Thailand so I figured I would be around to help with something like this. Thanks again.

Why would we need a screenshot of the fastboot folder?

ok so it says "Fastboot usb". I am using the original htc usb cable. I'm not sure if it's a usd 2.0 port all I know is that it's an Intel 6 Series/C200 Series.

When I ran the command prompt it says:
<bootloader> cid: 11111111
OKAY [ 0.017s]

Ok, so you have a working fastboot connection now, right? The problem you face at the moment is that you can't run an RUU with your phone in the current configuration. S-on + SuperCID + jb RUU = brick. Your only real option at this stage is to do this:

-Unlock the bootloader at htcdev.
-Flash TWRP recovery.
-Flash a ROM to get the phone booting.
-Get s-off via Facepalm S-off.
-Run the correct at&t RUU to return the device to stock
-Change the CID back to the at&t CID.
-Relock the bootloader.
-Go back to s-on.

That probably seems like a lot of work but it's the only way for you to proceed. I have detailed instructions for several of those procedures in the How-To Guide For Beginners thread in my signature.

So I can;t get past the first step because it's not recognizing my phone still. When I ran the first command in the command prompt, where it should have listed my phone it says "List of connected devices" and nothing underneath it.

I'm not sure why I can find the CID and not get it listed as an attached device. I tried to run the adb devices command a few times and then ran the fastboot oem readcid command in the same window and I could get the cid but still cant get it to recognize the device

Are you attempting adb commands while the device is in fastboot mode? They won't work, only fastboot commands will work there, adb commands work while the phone is booted into the OS. Use "fastboot devices" while in fastboot mode.
