Default HTC One Soft Brick adb doesn't see device

I know I know another one. I have searched for 2 days and tried every trick I can find to no avail. I was bit by the charging bug so I was prepping the device to be sent in for repair. I was resetting to factory and cleared all memory including system (accidently of course).

fastboot seems to work perfectly but adb doesn't see the device so I can't push or sideload a ROM. The drivers are also the same drivers I used before. I have reinstalled these but it didn't help.

I guess my first question is do I even need to put a ROM on it. Based on some of the charging problems the board has to be replaced. I'm paying for the repair since I'm out of warranty. I disclosed the device was rooted with a bootloader when I opened the service ticket. Will they repair it?

I would still like to resolve the issue with adb. Any great ideas that might work? Thanks

adb only works in custom recovery or booted ROM with USB debugging enabled, that being said, can you check FAQ#2 here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...24&postcount=2

Yes. I have tried cwm and twrp to sideload. This worked the last time I used it but I'll grab the updated driver and see if that works.

I didn't mean the driver, just check what Windows Device Manager shows, and if it's an unknown device, then you need to manually select the driver:

Open "Device Manager" -> select the unknown "One" -> right-click -> "Update Driver Software ..." -> "Browse my computer" -> "Let me pick" -> "Android USB Devices" -> select "My HTC ..." -> install that

The new driver didn't help. Another item is I see the device in the in device manger when I'm in fastboot but the device is not recognized when I go into twrp recovery. Same with cwm. This might be a side issue of the charging problem. some were reporting their devices not working when connected to their computer.

when in custom recovery, what does Device Manager show?

The device disappears when in the custom recovery.
