Hi Guys,

I am in a bit of a pickle.

I decided to Install Cyanogenmod today to see what the fuss was all about - I managed to do this successfully but then after using it for a while actually didn't like it and preferred using Sense 5.

I tried to flash stock to my HTC One (UK M7ul) via the RUU method but this failed twice.

The phone is currently will only boot into Bootloader regardless of what I try so will not even boot into Cyanogenmod at all, when ever i click recovery as CWM was installed the phone will flash for a second saying starting recover and then go straight back into bootloader.

I am currently on Bootloader 1.55 with S-On - Phone is locked and will not allow me to unlock it.

I really need some help to get my phone fully functional again on HTC Sense Stock Firemware.

good thing you posted a ''fastboot getvar all'' but never post IMEI and SN, remove them from your post.

To restore the phone back to stock with a ruu, you need to be s-off to downgrade hboot to 1.44. So you will have to unlock bootloader from htcdev, install twrp custom recovery, flash arhd 31.6, s-off with rumrunner, downgrade hboot and then run the ruu.

all details can be found in this guide.

flash twrp recovery, and then type fastboot erase cache

Then try booting into recovery, and adb push this rom.. http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/guru_res...-62-401-1-zip/

Thanks for the help guys - I have issues with my computer not recognising my phone.

I have managed to unlock it again and am trying to get either one of the two methods you guys suggested to work.

IS there anything I need to do now as matter of good practie?

The bootloader is currently still inlocked - S-On is still activated and I still have the *tampered* logo.

Do I need to A) Lock the boot loader?
Should i turn S-Off?
How do I get rid of the tampered logo so its fully stock and I can get it repaired from HTC again?
