Default S-Off and need to unlock bootloader

My phone is all sorts of messed up...

Bottomline is that my bootloader is locked, I am S-Off, and I do not have root access

I've read that I cannot unlock my bootloader with htcdev if I am s-off

I tried unlocking my bootloader with revone, but I get a segmentation fault

How can I get my bootloader unlocked?

My firmware is 4.19.401.11

Someone please help me. I have been stuck with issues for over 24 hours now.

Thank you.

Thanks for replying.

I have tried that, but I when I enter su, I don't get the # prompt, it stays at $.

not sure if you're still looking for a solution to this, but you can use @scotty1223's commands in custom recovery (CWM or TWRP 2.6.3.3+) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2475914

if you don't have a custom recovery (and therefore cannot "fastboot flash recovery ..."), you can use of these "firmware" packages (m7_u/ul only):
http://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=13085

[B]fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip fw_m7ul_TWRP_2.6.3.3_1.26.401.33.zip
fastboot reboot-bootloader

-> enter RECOVERY (should be TWRP now)

and use the adb commands to unlock.
