Question [Q] Stuck Unrooting Tampered, Locked and S-On HTC One M7 :(


Hello! I need a huge help with HTC One M7 stuck in bootloader.
The device is rooted and recently installed with custom ROM (fw 4.3) but then I had to unroot and get back to stock ROM for service warranty.
I was following this link to unroot my device: htc-one.wonderhowto.com/how-to/return-your-rooted-unlocked-htc-one-back-factory-settings-for-warranty-repairs-0149204/.
All iz well except for the last step, loading the ROM and returning to stock. I initially intended to use the nandroid backup ROM (obtained thru TWRP) in recovery.

The problem now is that I can’t enter into recovery since the device is already locked and S-On. I also can’t find an exact RUU match.
Current device state is tampered, locked, S-On, and with security warning. Below is the device info:
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.54.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4A.17.3250.14
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 2.24.980.2
(bootloader) version-misc: PVT SHIP S-ON
(bootloader) meid: 00000000000000
(bootloader) product: m7_ul
(bootloader) platform: HBOOT-8064
(bootloader) modelid: PN0714000
(bootloader) cidnum: HTC__039
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 4316mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic
(bootloader) security: on
(bootloader) build-mode: SHIP
(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT
(bootloader) commitno-bootloader: dirty-d16dc66985
(bootloader) hbootpreupdate: 11
(bootloader) gencheckpt: 0
Any idea how to proceed with this? Thank you in advance for the help.

I've already tried running the Rumrunner but it can't detect the device.
I also checked the device via adb devices and nothing is listed.

Do you have any other suggestion?

I'm in the same boat. Has anyone found a solution?


EDIT: I found out I was flashing an RUU that was a lower version that what was on my phone. Flashed the correct RUU and everything fixed itself.
