HELLO!
Alright, this might be a difficult question to get a simple answer but I'm willing to learn a few new things from this in return!

The other day I decided to try out a new custom rom on my HTC One M7ATT, and with great success I was able to flash the latest Insert Coin rom running Android 4.4.2 and Sense 6. My problem formed when I tried to flash another rom to see whats out there. I decided that latest AOKP would be a nice choice. Once I was back into my recovery and ready to flash, I found out that my phone changed over to a M7WLV, and from what I found online, my phone now thinks that it's a HTC One from Sprint. In result, I can't flash the AOKP zip through TWRP

My questions are...
#1. How do I revert my M7WLV back into a M7ATT so that I could flash my roms, without going through RUU.
#2. How come there isn't really any information out there for this magical M7WLV

I totally appreciate any and all responses, and I'll be as informative as possible at working with anyone! Thanks! : )

The problem you will run into it that the hardware radio on the ATT phone is not the same as the Verizon phone. That being said there are some Verizon AWS bands used for data that the ATT phone won't support and there is no magic bullet for this issue.

So what I'm picking up from this is that when I flashed the rom that I originally wanted to use, I ended up flashing it along with a kernel that changed my radio over to Verizon from ATT. From what my bootloader is telling me, my radio's image 4A.14.3250.13
Since I'm still getting service through my carrier (ATT) I imagine that the M7WLV was due to something else

Would you think that it would be safe to try to wipe my phone back into it's original unlocked state and start over?

Thanks for getting back to me on this man!!
