A few nights ago I was tinkering around with my M7, testing out the custom Vyper Rom that is oh so popular. I unlocked my bootloader, gained SU rights on the phone, and was flashing the rim.zip file in recovery using TWRP. It was rolling around 2:30 AM, and I was pretty exhausted but I kept going. The installation failed, and I had a malfunctioning copy of the ROM. The home page didn't display, no apps, etc. Frustrated, I powered down the phone, entered fastboot, and then entered recovery. Any attempt to reinstall the ROM was failing, so in my irritation, I managed to re-lock my bootloader, delete the system cache, and left S-ON active. For all intents and purposes, I take it this is a soft brick.
Now, after about 17~ hours of research, testing, and frustration, I come to you guys for help. The furthest I've gotten so far is to use Process Monitor to take the rom.zip out of the RUU for (what I thought) is my HTC One. It works up until the Model ID check, which is apparantly incorrect.
My fastboot getvar all is this:
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.56.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4T.24.3218.09

NOTE: I am unable to access recovery as well right now, and at the top of the screen, ***TAMPERED*** ***RELOCKED*** ***SECURITY WARNING*** is displaying. Any attempt to leave the bootloader results in the reloading OF the boot loader. The only other function I have had work is Fastboot oem rebootRUU. If it would help, when I attempt a flash of the .RUU.zip, my CLI appears as such:
C:\mini-sdk>fastboot oem rebootRUU
... (bootloader) Start Verify: 3
C:\mini-sdk>fastboot flash zip rom4.zip

Any ideas? My next step is to try and find my model ID RUU, but I can't seem to find it. The RUU I used is RUU_M7_UL_K44_SENSE55_MR_Bouygues_FR_4.20.1020.12_ Radio_4A.23.3263.28_10.38r.1157.04L_release_351533 _signed_2
