So my phone is currently on a custom rom and I was trying to take it back to stock. I downloaded a ruu from htc dev because a bunch of guides I saw pointed me to do that and click a few buttons during the process it said my phone can't be updated and now i am stuck on a screen that looks like the bootloader but says this

***tampered***
***unlocked***
m8_UL PVT SHIP S-ON
HBOOT- 3.18.0.0000
Radio - 1.19.213311491.03g

SECURITY Fail!
RUU

I cant do anything from this screen. I tried to use another tool to get me into recovery but it says device not found. I also tried going through revovery through the ruu but nothing happens there. What else can i try to save my phone?

nvm i fixed that problem and now I'm back to square one. maybe someone could point me in the right direction from here.

I'm currently on 4.4.3 kk and am trying to get back to stock from my custom rom. clearly the ruu I used was the incorrect method and the other method I was going to try which involves using hasoon's toolkit appears to not be the answer because when i went to check the cid the version number was not available ( unless im missing something here)

any assistance that someone is willing to offer would be appreciated.

You have to re-lock your bootloader before you run the RUU.

How did you get back to where you were previously? Did you re-flash your custom ROM?
