Stuck in boot loop. Have CWM, other details inside.
Well, you'd think I'd have learned after the first two times - don't try to go back to stock. The last few times I was able to figure it out by mere chance, but now I think I may be doomed.
I'm trying to get a ROM, any ROM to load up on my HTC One M7. I've seriously browsed probably every XDA page concerning this kind of stuff, but to no avail can I find a solution. I've also downloaded probably about 10 different ROMs / RUUs to try and flash and now I can't even get as far as the install.
So far, I've gotten AndroidRev 71.1 and ViperOne to get to the final screen before getting a nice little script that says:
"set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed"
This has happened when I tried to sideload these ROMs in CWM.
Now, if I even try to sideload a ROM.zip it gets to appx. 82% and says:
* failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)' *
I've been without a phone for a day and a half now, trying every solution offered. Am I out of luck?

My provider is AT&T in the south eastern US. I've tried downloading RUU's and whatnot, but it doesn't work because CWM says it can't find /tmp/data/update.zip or something to that effect.
I'm giving up for the evening though. I would really appreciate any feedback. And yes, I've cleared the data / partitions / caches / Dalvik caches / etc. before doing this stuff and I'm not having any luck.
Does anyone know if HTC will fix this for a cost smaller than purchasing a new phone? If so, does anyone have any idea how much it costs? Honestly, I was trying to get back to stock so I could return it for a refurb since I have the purple tint camera issue.
