Default OK So now....

So now after a year of thinking I should root my phone, buying your book and then a week ago bricking myoff the phone I find myself here.

On the experts forum, where dreams are made and phones are fixed.

Only, there not.

I unlocked my phone installed twrp without installing superuser because twrp or unlocking switched off the wifi on my phone so twrp couldnt install superuser.
Since then I get this error

Failed to open usb master mode
[Preload] Failed to open usb master mode
loading PM35IMG.zip image...
Failed to open usb master mode
please plug off usb

I've unlocked it and re locked it with hasoon and tried to run an RUU, it tells me I need the RUU 2.17.206.3 I cant find it.
Ive got HBoot 1.72 at the moment, the phone wont switch off when charging, if indeed it is charging?

So I figure if its always had S-ON and there is an image file still there I must be able to boot that file and restore my phone?

My thoughts are to find the correct RUU am I right?

Oh and the phone now is not being recognised by the computer and adb cant see it because every time i plug it in it goes to fastboot.
Do I need to reunlock it?

Can anyone help me sort it out so I can experience the joys of custom roms and not the expense of a bricked phone?

And yep Im sorry I did run into it blind!

It's kinda cathartic, just used bat file to recharge and re unlock.
But Im still none the wiser.

Whatd do I need a ROM an RUU or a KERNEL?
