If you follow this step by step, you will be back to stock s-on, locked bootloader and stock rom.
Note: This will work with ANY windows, for thoses having windows 8 issues.

Files needed:

HTC Drivers (THanks to mdmower for hosting):

Automated Unlock/SuperCID/Temp-Root scripts for Windows and Linux(Thanks to mdmower):

Stock RUU (THANKS TO androidfilehost:

Unlocked bootloader
CID: 111111

Okay, so I had a heck of a time returning to stock with the latest updated bootloader.
So, I decided to make a back to stock for noobs.

First, you will need to download the two files above.
Next, disable any antivirus. (AVG was blocking me from running the script)

1) Reverting CID:

Click start, run
Type CMD, enter

type cd and paste the location of the unzip folder.
(Note: I had issues with the script running, this will be a windows 8 fix also)
Exp: cd C:\Users\Home\Inc4GUnlockV61-Windows

Next, connect your device and make sure android debugging is running and stay awake is checked mark.
Plus, make sure your device stays unlocked!

Run the following (copy and paste):

adb shell "su -c 'id'" > su_check.log 2>&1

find.exe "uid=0(root)" su_check.log > NUL

adb shell "su -c 'dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4 of=/sdcard/cid'"

adb pull /sdcard/cid

hexalter cid 0x214=0x56,0x5A,0x57,0x5F,0x5F,0x30,0x30,0x31 > NUL

adb push cid /sdcard/

adb shell "su -c 'dd if=/sdcard/cid of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4'"

adb shell "rm /sdcard/cid"

del cid

adb reboot bootloader

Now, check to make sure your back to VZW_001.
If so, reboot device.

2) Next (Going back to stock):
Unlock device
Run RUU and follow steps with your phone connected.

Screen Shots:

----------DONE BACK TO STOCK ----------

3) Next (S-on) (THANKS TO andybones for the script):

Turn on debugging after stock reboot!!!

Go here and run the commands:

(Just use the same CMD you had opened.)
adb devices

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot devices

fastboot oem writesecureflag 3

fastboot reboot-bootloader

Verify you are locked s-on

Run command:

fastboot reboot

Screen Shot:

4) Finally (Relock bootloader):

Run these commands:

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem lock

After Reboot run:
adb reboot bootloader

Should be relocked!
Screen Shot:


Your all done, back to stock and all.

Thanks again to:

Thanks for this guide. It's been a while since I've done anything in going back to stock on an HTC device, and I had a $200 promo for any smart phone trade in, and this phone has been lying around collecting dust for 2 years.

Just one quick edit that I would suggest. In step 1, if the CID is already set at VZW_001, the step can be skipped. You can check if you've got the proper CID set in the adb shell with su permissions by running the command getprop ro.cid.
