Default [Q] Help fixing HTC one m8 (T-Mobile unlocked)

please can anyone help? I recently switched ove r to android and got the gs5 but then realized I wanted the HTC one m8 so I bought it, I'm new to the whole unlocked bootloader and root so I was not 100 percent sure what I was doing but I unlocked the bootloader and rooted the phone then I did something stupid and on titanium backup I deleted HTC blink feed and didn't make a back up before, then I pressed the home button and it wouldn't work so I got all freaked out turned off the phone and after a while of fiddiling with the bootloader and recovery (I have twrp) turned my s-off back on and relocked my bootloader, I was afraid and wasn't sure what to do but now the phone won't boot to a home screen its just black if anyone can help i would really appreciate it. Thanks, joshua

Unlock bootloader.

Push a Rom to your phone
Adb push Rom.zip /sdcard/
Wipe, slide to reset
Flash Rom
Get phone up and running

For future reference, unless you're returning the device, never relock or go s-on. And I personally don't go s-on for that, especially on T-Mobile. If you ever have issues like this again grab the RUU from HERE and run it. It'll put your phone back to bone stock firmware and you're still unlocked with s-off.
