I unlocked the boot loader, then I rebooted my phone, then rebooted into recovery mode. Once I install either a custom rom, or supersu, even if it works to install, once i try to reboot, it only reboots to TWRP. Even when I reboot to system it still does that. Is my phone just bricked?

No its not bricked.. maybe soft bricked, but not bricked bricked how are you flashing recovery? are you using
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
or
fastboot flash boot twrp.img
2nd way is incorrect. Try
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
fastboot erase cache
then boot to twrp and flash rom and let me know what happens. Make sure you are using correct gsm twrp if you are on an att phone.

He probably followed these instructions here which direct you to flash twrp to boot instead of recovery just like you said above.

I don't know why he leaves it up there like that but seeing as it's the first link on Google when you search "root att HTC one m8" , he needs to change it cause I'm sure it's causing plenty of headaches.

I did
./fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
because I'm using mac. I didn't erase the cache though. Also on twrp, it says my phone has no os, and installing a custom rom failed to install.
