Default [Q] is this phone brick

I just bought a att htc one off Craig's list and it is tampered/relocked. The phone boots straight into fastboot and there is no operation system on phone. I tried to use ruu to get it back to stock but it freezes at checking hash 5percent. I also tried to fastboot the ruu zip but it had an error verify 12 signatures. Are there any other suggestions that I could try to get an os back on this phone or is this phone pretty much bricked?

Unlock bootloader, install twrp recovery, sideload a rom zip.

There are numerous existing threads that describe how to do each step, just spend a little time reading first.

I don't think I can unlock the relocked bootloader without the token correct? Is there any other way to unlock a locked bootloader without the htcdev token?

Yes, you'll need an unlock token.
