Default [Q] boots constantly into recovery mode

Hi There,
I searched the threads available to the best of my ability, but im not sure exactly what im looking for. Purchased an HTC one used, flashed with cyanogenmod 10.2. When I tried to update it to 11, it soft bricked (im assuming) as it cant get past the recovery mode. I factory wiped it, in my ignorance thinking this would be able to fix the issue, boot up the stock rom. This cleared the OS so I was more stuck then I previously was.

I figured out how to push roms onto it, and I got the new android revolution rom on there, and when i install it, it says its successful as it goes through all the rom specific steps, but when it system reboots it goes back into this loop.

Are there any suggestions to get out of this? Should i somehow flash the latest RUU?

Thanks a lot I appreciate any help
Current device: Rogers HTC One

You must use latest twrp version to flash arhd rom! 2.5.0.0 is very outdated.

Are you using a windows 8.1 computer? If yes then you miht have issue with fastboot.

and make sur your phone variant is M7_U or M7_UL in bootloader screen. (not a sprint version M7wls)

What is the hboot version in bootloader screen?

from the OP of arhd thread:

Android Revolution HD 51.0

You need TRWP 2.6.3.3 recovery!

ok so flash twrp 2.6.3.3 and reflash your rom.

Code:
./fastboot flash recovery <name_of_file>.img
./fastboot erase cache
./fastboot reboot-bootloader
then flash arhd again.

is there a line of code to flash the rom through fastboot, rather then rebooting recovery and installing it?

No, you'll need a custom recovery to flash a rom.

or

Use a ruu to restore back to 100% stock but you will need to post a ''fastboot getvar all'' to determine if this is possible.

What is going wrong?

You can also post screenshots of you terminal window when you get errors.

Actually, I just installed it through the newly flashed recovery and it worked perfectly (Android Revolution)

Thank you so much! Saved me a lot of time
