Unhappy [Q] HELP Brick HTC One from 4.4 Update

My HTC One is an AT&T HTC One which I flashed to GPe 4.3 and everything was working dandy.

However, I (stupidly) updated my HTC One to 4.4 KitKat with the OTA update when I shouldn't have and now my phone is bricked. Whenever I turn it on it freezes on a blue screen with weird glitches. The only thing I can access is my recovery which is TWRP.

Can anyone help me and unbrick my phone? I'm unable to flash a new ROM (back to 4.3) because my computer won't recognize my phone.

Make sure you install the drivers for your phone and mount the storage on TWRP

Move a full 4.3 zip package to the sd card with an sd card reader.

Then wipe everything and flash that zip.

(Microsd card reader can be found somewhere on amazon)

or put the microsd card into another phone and use that phone as a reader.
No need to download the whole android sdk or put adb in your path anymore!
Just extract my tool and run the adbClientLaunch script.

Then he must find a way to put it back to stock with fastboot and a computer that will connect to his device.
Needs drivers.

My tool in my signature will be of help with fastboot.

I have an all-htc driver zip but it is not with me right now.
