status: HTC One X, s-off, unlocked, no reliable firmware or ROM

the last things I've done are to follow steps in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2598659
synopsis:
  • unlocked phone, changed CID to HTC__E11,
  • relocked phone, flashed firmware 3.14.401.31, ran RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_JB_45_S_HTC_Europe_3.14.401.31_R_Ra dio_5.1204.162.29_release_302015_signed.exe
  • unlocked phone, flashed CWM recovery 5.8.4.0

problem: ROM will not start up and run reliably. I can't start recovery from bootloader, so I can't install another rom.

current getvar all:

further details
further history:
  • phone was imported into new zealand from unknown origin
  • when I started working on the phone, I remember is having CID: 11111111, and had HBOOT 0.96
  • I think Hong Kong zoned firmware and RUU 1.29.708.15 were a combination which allowed me entry to CWM successfully, though low hboot version limited me from flashing cyanogenmod 10.1/ 10.2. Didn't try other ROMs
  • when I was flashing earlier, the battery charge was above 4000mV, it seems to have lost a lot of charge overnight

any help or advice around finding the right firmware/RUU that might help me install a working ROM would be amazing.
if I'm barking up the wrong tree also happy to explore other leads.
thanks in advance

phone no longer booting
thanks for everyone's suggestions.
since the first post I haven't been able to try anything, because phone seems unresponsive (will not boot at all).

I've tried leaving it all night plugged into a wall charger (while off).

If it is battery, I'm aware of charging issues this phone has and the batchfile/ cwm 5.8.4.0 workarounds, but I can't get into recovery nor bootloader. If it's charge is there any way to get the phone enough charge?

Is the phone bricked?

phone now has some charge, still being awkward
ok have access to bootloader again. I'm trying rerunning the RUU, but having trouble... RUU tries to restart phone but fails.

I'm wondering if i've misunderstood how the region matters. the only stability i have seen is with old honkkong region firmware and old RUU (RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_hTC_Asia_HK_1.29.708.15_Rad io_2.1204.122.17_release_268338_signed.exe)

can anyone give me a clear idea of whether using x.xx.401.xx on an s-off phone makes any difference ...
or should i be looking for x.xx.708.xx ruu and 708/hongkong firmware?
