It attempts to for around 7 tries and then advises it could not be mounted?
"generic looking HTC One with two green arrows..." -> that's stock recovery.

so boot up your rom, setup only WiFi, check for System Updates (somewhere in settings) then download and install the OTA.

Excellent................much to your relief I am sure, it is all done! I am now on 4.3 stock, S-On, untampered, locked.]

sure no problem, here's what you can do in return if you like (for me & the community):

1- edit the main thread title to include [SOLVED]

2- hit the thanks button on a few of my posts (I do believe I was helpful ) including the first post of my guide

3- post a quick reply in my guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2541082 that gives a short summary (including your MID & CID) of how you got everything back to stock; anything you may find relevant for other users in your situation would find helpful

have a good weekend too

So as you can tell I have been unable to access the internet for a while.

I did one final check to see before the courier arrived to pick up the phone for repair and when I enter the bootloader it still says tampered? if im honest im not sure i've seen it say tampered before anyway?

Any idea buddy?

Also, I cannot find that bloody thanks button! Where is it located on a comment?

did you go s-off to s-on on Android 4.3? you need to do that before 4.3 (ie you need to be on hboot 1.44 or 1.54)

2 hours is going to be a bit close, cause you need to S-Off again, and start the procedure from the beginning.
