I have tried the rom from the RUU, fastboot into ruu mode, transfer it, and I get an error
I tried putting PL80IMG in the root of my sd, it seems to flash correctly but it boots in white htc quietly brilliant screen. and flash boot.img for that rom.
I restore a rom via TWRP boots into white htc quietly brilliant screen.
and countless other things.
1. RUU won't work because it's 4.1.2 and you were on 4.2.2. The RUU has the HBoot in it and your device will not allow the HBoot to be downgraded because you are S-On. Only time you can use an RUU is if it is equivalent to 4.2.2 which one does not currently exist for us.
2. PL80IMG.zip's only work for those who are S-Off. Which is why it won't work for you.
3. When you restore your device using TWRP you ALSO have to rename boot.emmc.win to boot.img and flash it using fastboot:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
-- This is because, once again, you are S-On and cannot write to your boot partition EXCEPT using fastboot. You could using dumlock but to get dumlock initially set up for the first time would require your device to be able to load an OS so for you that is currently out of the question.
You must restore your device using a twrp backup, AND NOT REBOOT THE SYSTEM when it is done.
Instead, reboot the bootloader, and using fastboot, flash the boot.img which comes with the twrp backup as I just stated earlier.
Then you may reboot.
That will ALWAYS work, so if it fails, then this is an end user problem.
