Exclamation [Q] Help! Stuck at bootscreen with no ROM... Bricked?

Hi,

Ive got a HTC One here with the problem mentioned in the title. The phone is completely stock, locked bootloader, not rooted, S-ON.

The phone does not get past the HTC screen at all, it stays there for a few seconds and turns off. I can get into the bootloader, but cannot get adb to work. However fastboot is working fine.

Ive tried to unlock the bootloader so that I can try to get a custom recovery and install a ROM that way, but everytime I try to unlock it it restarts and gets stuck again. Comes up as locked once back into the bootloader.

Tried flashing an RUU, but the ones Ive tried bring up a singature failed error, I assume due to the locked bootloader.

Searched, looked, and read through many threads/posts for the past few hours and I cant find anything to help me.

This is what getvar all brings up...

Code:
version: 0.5
version-bootloader: 1.55.0000
version-baseband: 4A.21.3263.04
version-cpld: None
version-microp: None
version-main: 3.62.401.1
version-misc: PVT SHIP S-ON
serialno: 
imei: 
meid: 00000000000000
product: m7_ul
platform: HBOOT-8064
modelid: PN0710000
cidnum: HTC__001
battery-status: good
battery-voltage: 4320mV
partition-layout: Generic
security: on
build-mode: SHIP
boot-mode: FASTBOOT
commitno-bootloader: dirty-bb768ae1
hbootpreupdate: 11
gencheckpt: 0
Please help! Im stuck...just like my phone is!

Install custom recovery
Then you have 2 options
ADB sideload
USB otg both work good
I recommend twrp recovery
Then connect usb then Mount usb with custom Rom in it flash your Rom
Otherwise if you have ruu exe file with same version 3.62.401.1 in your getvar you can install in fastboot mod

What RUU did you try. Link please
With S-On you can flash RUU same version or higher, it will not allow you to flash RUU lower version

Have you tried a hard reset from within the bootloader or fastboot erase cache or the bright light trick. If that fails are you still within warranty, if so send it in for service.

One of the RUU was an older version, that didnt work for obvious reasons. I then found one for the same version I have but it was called Guru Reset, so I think it may have been slightly modified, that didnt work either.

I have already tried the suggestions you mentioned but its not working. Anything I select from within the bootloader just reboots the phone over again, except fastboot.

I have just found and flashed a newer version of the RUU exe at http://androidruu.com/getdownload.ph...signed_2-1.exe

This seemed to be working, it even said it was complete. But the phone did not reboot itself, I switched it on, and ran into the same problem. Tried erasing cache, again nothing. Tried manually flashing the zip, but I get an error about data length is too large. No idea what is going wrong here.

Unfortunately no warranty.

This is what getvar brings up after the flash...

Code:
version: 0.5
version-bootloader: 1.56.0000
version-baseband: 4A.23.3263.28
version-cpld: None
version-microp: None

Im desperate to get this fixed! Please help!

Bootloader is locked, cannot be unlocked as mentioned in first post. The phone just reboots itself after I select yes to unlock bootloader.

What can be done?

Thanks for the input... but that unfortunately wont work either because adb is not working for me, I can only get fastboot to work.

Any other suggestions?
