Default [Q] Firmware flash failed, stuck on black HTC Screen

N/M, managed to flash RUU and get back to fastboot recovery. I'm sure I can make this work from here.

I was attempting to updated my firmware and then flash a stock rom to correct some GPS and network issues I've had running Santod's 4.4.2 rom. The Firmware flash failed but because I'm an idiot I rebooted my phone. Now I can't access ADB, fastboot commands run but don't work and my phone is stuck on a black HTC screen with an error triangle in each corner. Can anyone suggest what I should do? Am I totally out of luck here?

OK, I think I'm in serious trouble here. This is where things stand. I've got updated firmware and recovery installed. I have fastboot, but no ADB. I've attempted reinstalling drivers, using different ports, the lot. ADB is just not going to happen as far as I can tell. I have no rom on my SD card because in the course of all this madness, my SD card was wiped. I have attempted to use fastboot flash zip commands to push sense and GPE roms, but I get the following error: FAILED (remote: 24 parsing android-info fail). I've been able to get CWM and TWRP recoveries installed but because I don't have any zips on my sdcard, they are useless. Since I can't get ADB to recognize my phone, the ADB sideload options don't work either.

This is now the chronicle of my attempt to get my phone back. After uninstalling/deleting all the HTC drivers as well as the complete Android SDK, reinstalling the SDK, installing the universal naked driver, I finally have ADP talking to my phone. Right now I'm pushing the latest stock rom to my phone. Cross your fingers, me!
