Question [Q] Google Play Edition HTC One Trying to Revert back to Sense

This is my first thread here on XDA so bare with me guys. I'm going to try to add all the important details to help you help me... yeah. Anyways, on with my problem. I recently converted my AT&T HTC One with sense to a GPE. Back on sense I was on 4.3, made a backup with TWRP and currently have it saved on my computer. Once I was one the google play edition, I updated to 4.4, just in case that matters.

The phone has S-OFF and has an unlocked bootloader. Not Rooted nor does it has a custom recovery.

My question is, how do I go back to HTC Sense ? Can I install a TWRP and drag & drop the backup & restore ? Or will installing a custom recovery brick the phone ?

Bootloader screen details:

Quote:
***UNLOCKED***
M7_UL PVT SHIP S-OFF RH
CID-GOOGL001
HBOOT-1.54.0000
RADIO-4T.21.3218.21
OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-3.58.1700.5
The rest doesn't really matter

Can I install A Custom Recovery and drag the backup from TWRP to my phone and restore back to sense ?
Any help is much appreciated !

Installing a custom recovery won't brick your phone. You'll just have to move the TWRP recovery to your internal SD card from your computer, install TWRP then restore from within TWRP. If you wanted the latest Sense version of Android, you could look at flashing ARHD 51.0 running on 4.4.2 instead of going back to 4.3, but that's up to you. Ask if you need anymore information.
AT&T HTC One: 32 GB
ROM VERSION: ARHD GPE 6.1 || 4.4.2
HBOOT: 1.54 GPE Darkboot
RECOVERY: TWRP, 2.7.0.4
FIRMWARE: 4.19.401.11
RADIO: 4A.25.3263.21
SECURITY: S-OFF
KERNAL: STOCK
CID: 11111111
