Alright Dev's, you guys are my final hope. I have an HTC One that won't boot into its Rom at all, the only thing it boots into is the bootloader. When I look at the info of the bootloader, it says Tampered, Locked (Not Relocked), and Security Warning. I'm trying to flash the RUU, but the phone never gets the Rom flashed to it. I'll always get a Fail, from the RUU. Can someone please help me?

S on or s off?

Edit...just read your other thread. There's not an encrypted/signed ruu for that is later/newer than what you have. The only way to fix that is wait for one or go the java card route.

The reason i believed this happened is because before setting my bootloader back to "Locked", and putting back "s-on", i was running santods 3.11.605.1 odexed full rom.

It is hard bricked if you don't have access to a java card, or don't want to send it in to HTC. Average repair is $90.
