Default [Q] need help restoring htc one m7 to 100% stock

hi guys

i'm trying to get my htc one back to how it was when it was in the box

on my boot screen i have these stats:

*** TAMPERED ***
*** UNLOCKED ***

i've managed to get it unlocked and to s-off this evening (a lot of the guides seemed to require these before being able to flash anything, including stock roms)

the thing is, i don't know where to go next. is it a case of just downloading a rom and flashing it to get stock? how do i get right of tampered and unlocked? whats an ruu? do i need to flash an ruu? or is an ruu just a rom?

i'm totally lost :/

thanks for any help you can offer

Well first of all, whoever told you that S-off was needed to flash the ROM that came with your phone is wrong. I have no idea why so many people say this. Here's what you need to do.

1. To remove the tampered flag, use this guide.
2. Now lock the bootloader. Use the same guide, but step number 7.
3. Now flash the RUU for your CID. If you don't know which one, just run this command and post the exact output here. "fastboot getvar all"
