Default screwed the pooch on a root and now its dead. help needed

i just purchased a htc one max from y sprint carrier. ill save the long storys.
i rooted it just fine from what i could tell. unlocked it as well. the i tried flashing skydragon on it, and it seems it reduced the functionality. so naturally i didnt back anything up. and tried to remove it, or tried to flash another rom. can remember honestly its been a long two days trying to get this thing to at least back to factory. and so now the end result. there is no OS. the bootloader is still flashed to non stock with s on. and everytime i try to flash a rom it fails. tried adb sideload and that failed. tried the onclick factory reset. that fails. so far htc guru gets the furthest. it runs all the way through the installer gets to the end. and when it reboots it says no os installed. so im at a loss. my last ditch effort is gonna be just bring it back or smash it and claim insurance replacement.
any ideas would be fantastic

Not to experienced on this side either but I have a good sense if development. Have you tried running rumrunner to get s-off. It sounds like you will need to be s-off. Also which custom recovery are you using?

Look for sprint RUU, i am not sure if that is around, that should get you back on business.

how do you say it's corrupt, have you heard of an encrypted RUU?
