Question [Q] Help un-softbricking my HTC One

I just picked up the HTC One today, and instantly attempted to root it.

After I finally rooted it, I made a stupid mistake of wiping all data prior to flashing a custom rom, and with no SD card, I figured I was screwed.

I'm still able to access TWRP recovery.

I read this article http://htconeroot.com/htc-one-tutori...b/#comment-436 attempting to explain how to mount my htc one and eventually flash a custom rom over. And following his instructions I am able to see "ROM.zip" in TWRP however when I try to flash the rom (which is CM11), it get an error and in red letters I read FAILED.

Any ideas? Thanks guys

i would suggest following this same procedure, but also check the md5 of the file on your computer / on the phone to make sure it downloaded/transferred correctly.
i'd also recommend flashing a sense based rom initially, stock or maybe bonestock. this only because they'll give you the least compatibility issues when flashing, and also because if you flash directly to cm11 you'll most likely have problems getting a gps lock.

Thanks I'll give it a shot again. Wish me luck

UPDATE: So it still doesn't work, I've tried using adb sideload with no luck either. Here's what it says:

set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
E: Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard/'
Error flashing zip '/sdcard/M7WLVCOO.zip'

Also when rebooting in recovery it says my device is not rooted (it was prior to this) and now its asking to install SuperSU, but when I reboot, of course it doesn't install it since I have no OS. How do I reroot with only twrp recovery?

Any idea what this means?
Thanks

Default Have you tried using the fastboot options for flashing

there are some links here to doing the fastboot flashing I believe you reboot into bootloader holding the power and vol down keys when you get to the menu 1st option is fastboot hit power button and your in fastboot mode pleae anyone correct me if i am wrong but you should be able to type fastboot oem_RUU this will reboot your phone and you will get a htc with a green bar then type fastboot flash zip imagename.zip and hit enter that should flash the rom onto your system but please please please do a search and just double check the fastboot commands

+1^^^ do an RUU. I suggest RUU'ing the .15 stock image. Then root again. Flash a recovery. Make a nandroid. Copy a Rom. Wipe and flash.
