I'm in the exact same boat, friend. Never really saw a need to unlock or root prior to the OTA but now I'm having serious battery issues, mainly the phone radio using over 50% of my battery daily. I've been googling so hard I've almost broken my internets, but can't seem to find anyway to downgrade to use rum runner. I'm just dealing with it and hoping beaups and the other devs find a way to get us unlocked. Until then I'll wait patiently with my portable charger on hand lol.

Damn, sorry to hear that man. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long! Kit Kat looks delicious!

What he is saying is that if you used rumrunner or sent it in to gain S-OFF, all you would have to do is download the superuser zip file and in TWRP flash the superuser file. When you reboot you might need to update the binaries but that would do it.

Gained root again on my device after taking the 4.3 update.

Edit:
Oh dang I never finished reading the thread and saw the question was answered. =)

Has anyone tried taking the .15 encrypted RUU after taking the 4.3 update who is NOT rooted? I need to send my phone in for camera pink tint and am worried they will update it to 4.3 after returning to stock.

No, it won't work, it prevents your from downgrading, as HTC software has always done.
If I had a locked device, there are a couple things I would try to see if I could make it work.
Likely they wouldn't though, and I'd hate to get anyone's hopes up or send them down an unsuccessful path.
Bottomline being, there is currently no way to unlock, or to downgrade from a locked 4.3 device, to achieve an unlock.

Oh yeah I've been trying. I tried multiple downloads from multiple sources but they all hang up at the checking main version action and then fail. It's pretty much just playing the waiting game for rum runner and attempting patience. I'm not too hopeful for anything in the next few weeks since everyone has been busy with Christmas and such and New Years coming up. But if it can be done, the devs on here will do it.
