I have seen this come up many times as a question.. Probably needed a post of it's own...

Download this and move it to your ext-sd card (not in any folder) using htc file manager. Rename it to

Then reboot to bootloader and allow it to flash. This will give you back the latest TWRP. Boot back up and delete that zip off your sd card. IF you don't delete or rename it you won't be able to get to recovery via bootloader (it will keep trying to load that zip).
Then download this (doesn't matter to where-just remember where).

Reboot to TWRP manually and flash it. Bam... done.....

This works on 5.0.1
