Should have done s-off. No point in modding without it.

Default No unlock acknowledgment

I had the same issue with my first HTC One, it was a tmobile version. I ended up having to RUU whick alligned the firmware, hboot, rom, and recovery to the same versions. Boot and go through the setup. shut down. reboot. shutdown. boot into fastboot. create a new user with HTC, submit your token. Reboot your PC. Send the bin file to the device. unlock. powerdown. flash recovery. powerdown. enter recovery. powerdown and accept the install of SU. boot into the stock ROM. powerdown. You should be set to go.

I can't find an RUU for 4.06.1540.X though. =( I believe that will fix my problem but the solution is not out there.

At the time I modded there was no solution for S-OFF for 1.5+.

As for now, the only thing I seem to be able to successfully flash via RUU are the two 4.06 firmwares from @mike1986. Unfortunately, it's just firmware and not a full RUU so I can't boot into anything but the bootloader. Any hints on where I can find a stock rom that it will let me install via fastboot since I don't have a custom recovery?

Your CID is still CWS__001.

Get the AT&T RUU from HTC and run it. Then start the bootloader unlock process all over.

Once you've got a working phone, then attempt to s-off using rumrunner with a live CD/USB of a Linux distribution.

I really appreciate all the help, but there either is no AT&T RUU that will run with the firmware on my phone (afaik you can't go backward when you're S-ON), or it's not where I'm able to find it on the internet. I've looked here and htc1guru.com.

That might be the case then...

I ran this RUU:

http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/ruu_m7_u..._signed_2-exe/

I used it go return to stock for a warranty exchange and had the 3.62.401.1 firmware at the time, but I was s-off.

Hopefully someone knows a way to get a ROM back on the phone so that you can get the bootloader unlocked.
