I just received an HTC One GPE. It comes with 4.2.2; because of that, I cannot using fastboot with Windows 8.1. Then I let the OTA update to 4.4.2, then I use the command "fastboot oem unlock" but it gives me these error:

Code:
(bootloader) [PG_ERROR] htc_pg_part_traverse(839):
(bootloader) invalid traverse range
(bootloader) [PG_ERROR] htc_pg_part_read(1029):
(bootloader) htc_pg_part_traverse failed
(bootloader) [DISPLAY_ERR] sp_custom partition: unlock_disp_buf.img_buf r
(bootloader) ead error!
(bootloader) [DISPLAY_ERR] Can not load custom splash!
(bootloader) Loading custom splash failed!
OKAY [ 0.589s]
finished. total time: 0.591s
Hboot version: 1.54

Extra question: after sucessfully unlock the bootloader, install the custom recovery, which guide should I follow to make S-OFF?

you should have done some homework before updating to 4.4(.x) -> "fastboot oem unlock" no longer seems to work.

since you have a functioning ROM, you could look into firewater to S-Off

As far as I know S-OFF requires the devices to be rooted, but I cannot grant any root access from now without unlock the bootloader

firewater has a temproot exploit that may (or may not) work

Thank you. However, the temp-root does not work. I am downloading the stock 4.3 GPE RUU to flash over. Hoping I can get this done. I will report later

So actually there is no solution to root/unlock_bootloader/s-off this? I guess I must stay with stock Google ROM
