Default [Q] HTC First stuck in boot loop

I've got a problem. I used rumrunner (generic htc) to s-off my First, and it worked. But now I'm stuck in a bootloop. I can only access the bootloader and cwm recovery by pressing volume down + power. I tried using cwm to restore my backup, but to no avail. Can anyone help?

Haha, okay.
The link you provided is for the One and I want to make sure I'm doing everything right. So I have to first run a stock RUU (where do I get that?) and second type in the fastboot commands, and then it should work?

The reason I used rumrunner is because I got this error when using moonshine:

The solution was to fastboot flash the 1.08.502.1 boot.img, but I didn't know where to get it or whether it would erase anything.
So per the suggestion from this thread I decided to use rumrunner.

Nevermind, I found the solution:
fastboot oem lock
...Should've tried that first.

it's for the one, but it's universal for all htc devices, i've tried this on mine already just for a future reference
