Is this due to the bootloader being "Relocked"? If so, any idea how to Unlock it again .... I used HTC Dev to initially unlock it way back when and rumrunners to get S-OFF

Thanks for the help!

When you run an RUU, i assume your bootloader has been locked, so if RUU is succesfull, your bootloader is currently locked/relocked.
Go to the HTC dev email you´ve received with the Unlock_code.bin . but this in your folder with adb & fastboot. Go into fastboot mode, and execute : ¨fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin¨
If you havn´t got this email anymore, go to the htcdev website and request your unlock code again as you did unlocking.
Then install TWRP/CMW, flash youŕe preffered rom

EDIT: Just read the other posts, use revone as
nkk71 suggested. Otherwise read up on the revone thread :

As suggested, I used my original HTC Dev token to successfully unlock the bootloader from it's "Relocked" state.

Then I was able to flash TWRP and reflash ViperOne ... So I'm back to where I started from thankfully!

The only problem I'm having is getting the right PC drivers installed to connect the phone to transfer files ...... That's going to have to wait until tomorrow now as it's late here!

Thanks to everyone for the help and advice
