Cool [Q] New to HTC ONE need help

I have just bought myself a HTC ONE upgraded from a GS3. I was very familiar with GS3 installing roms, tweaks and modems etc. But HTC ONE is completely different to that. I have been googlin adb and fastboot and gained abit of knowledge through there.
It is completely stock so i have done the following steps:

I have unlocked the bootloader,
Then installed the TWRP 2.6.3.3
Made a nandroid backup through TWRP
Copied TWRP backup folder for future reference to computer.
I wiped the data and adb sideloaded a custom rom. (Thought il start from scratch)

So the device is rooted and running now.
I shall be doing S-Off later on as its getting late now
What else shall i do to the phone to get it at its peak?

Also i went through the file manager in TWRP and realised data reset did not clear everything like i thought it would on the phone.
Shall i wipe data a different method to get it completely reset?
Thanks the help would be appreciated.
Just need pointing in the right direction and how you would make your phone new again.

achieve S-OFF then update your firmware to the latest for "peak" performance
you can find plenty of guides regarding S-OFF & stuff

congratulations.
s-off is kinda overrated. you can pretty much do whatever you want to do with just unlocked bootloader, but hey, you're on a roll so why not go all the way.
I've never bothered flashing updated firmware etc and everything works just fine. Great performance and good battery with everything working as it should....

what stuff did the data wipe leave behind?

HTC M8
ROM: ViperOneM8
Kernel: Hacker Beta 10

So next step firmware can any be installed or does it need to be device specific?
Also how do I get a virtual ad card so when I wipe data that is not affected?
