Hi,

It's my third day with this the new HTC One, and when I was trying to disable system write protection, I think I did something wrong and all I can do now is boot into bootloader and twrp. I just got this phone and my parents are going to kill me if they find out I screw it up

Can you restore a backup?

If you can get in TWRP then you can either restore a backup (if you have one) or push a ROM to internal storage (or an external SD) and install from there. You're not bricked

Sadly I didn't back it up, I realised after factory reseting, which didn't work.

Download a custom rom from here, connect to PC through usb port in TWRP, copy rom into sdcard, flash it.
That should work

I've downloaded the GPe rom and flashed it, thank god it's worked. But on another note why can't I do anything on my external sd card on my computer? I'm using a microsd to sdcard converter (I also made sure the lock wasn't on) and the I can't make a new folder, or delete anything? I'm on Windows 7.
