I then booted into fastboot and used cmd to flash the boot.img file onto the phone. Now the phone boots into the grey xylon screen but does not get any further, just that flashing white streak that indicates "Loading". I have tried wiping and restoring to the backup i made in TWRP but then it just loades the HTC One screen over and over not booting any OS, I have also tried wiping and re installing the rom with the previous steps to no avail. How should i recover my phone to a usable state? I dont care what Rom/OS is on there i would just like to get it working again.
Any advice would be appreciated greatly.
Kind Regards, Raf.
Ok firstly I wouldn't suggest getting ROMs from anywhere except XDA. Other sites (especially OneXRoot) don't properly distinguish between phone models, put simply this leads to bricks. Secondly can you please post your bootloader details, it's pretty standard to do this when asking for help as it gives us the information we need to help you properly.
There could be a few reasons the ROM didn't boot but lets not get into that now. When you created the backup of your stock ROM which boxes did you check? You're s-on so most likely even if you checked the right boxes (system/data/boot) and then restored those partitions later your phone can't flash the boot partition in recovery which means it won't boot. I'd strongly suggest getting s-off, it has many advantages which we can get into once your phone is recovered, and at this stage there's really no reason not to have it.
The best way to recover and get your phone booting right now is just to flash a different ROM. You can download a ROM to your PC and use the mount menu in TWRP recovery to mount your sd card so you can copy it to your phone. If it's aosp just make sure you have the correct version of gapps to correspond with the Android version of the ROM (4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4). And obviously make sure you flash the boot.img via fastboot after flashing the ROM. Also make sure you perform a full wipe (cache/dalvik/system/factory reset) before flashing any ROM. Before you attempt to flash anything though I need to see your bootloader details as mentioned above, certain ROMs require certain firmware to be installed in order to work.
I mentioned before not to get ROMs from other sites, you actually don't need anything from anywhere except XDA, it literally has everything you'll ever need. The other sites generally just copy/paste from here anyway. Here is our device forum main page:
Here are our two development sections:

Here's the q&a section:

Also if you click the Everything Evita link in my signature you'll find that thread extremely valuable. It contains links to basically anything and everything that's of any use.
PS. I'm reporting this thread so the mods can move it to the right section (q&a), please make sure you post in the correct section next time. Thanks!
