Hello,
i hope some of you got an idea for fixing my problem.
1. One month ago i unlocked my bootloader and tested LeeDrOiD U11 V3.1.0 R107 because i had some problems with the camera and the battery. LeeDrOiD does'nt fixed the problems because it seems like a hardware battery problem.
2. After a few days i roled back to stock rom with my TWRP Backup without any new problems.
3. The battery problems are very irritating, so I decided to lock the bootloader and ship it to HTC. After saving my data with TWRP i locked the bootloader via fastboot. The status of the bootloader is no "Relocked".
4. The relocking of the bootloader the device booted without problems until the screen poped up: Your phone is encrypted. (i did not configured this before)

Status:
I can't fix the enryption problem. I have -5 try's left... i don't know how this can happen
I can't get into recovery because i get a Screen with: Your device is corrupt. It can't be trusted and will not boot
I tested a lot of RUU's and stock recovery's from the Google Docs Spreadsheet "HTC U11 - RUU/Firmware/Recovery/OTA Collection"

Tried
Flash the RUU. Every RUU i tested is denied because theres a "Security Version Problem"
Flash Recovery (stock and twrp) = Bootloader Locked
C:\Android>fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.2.1-2-ocn.img
target reported max download size of 1560800000 bytes
sending 'recovery' (39676 KB)...
OKAY [ 2.227s]
writing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) HOSD CL#1002308
FAILED (remote: 9 RU_SECURITY_FAIL recovery and bootloader isn't BL_UNLOCKE)

Flash Unlock_Code.bin = Bootloader Locked (it's not possible to activate the setting in the developer settings, because the phone does'nt boot)
(bootloader) flash unlocktoken
(bootloader) [KillSwitch] : /dev/block/bootdevice/by-name/frp
(bootloader) [KillSwitch] Last Byte is 0X00, disable unlock

For future reference, relocking the bootloader too early did this.
You can only do that after running the exact correct RUU for your version of U11 so that
you end up with stock recovery and locked system.
Thank you for your Answer. Do you know where can i get the right RUU? I can't find the right one...

I fixed the Problem. I downloaded again the correct RUU from google spreadsheet and copied it into the root of a micro sd card and boot to download mode. (rename the RUU file to 2PZCIMG.zip)

Please help

I have the exact same problem. I tried to do my do-diligence and have searched the forums and google for days trying to find a solution. All I wanted to do was install TWRP and relock the bootloader. I understand my mistake was relocking to quickly. Its now soft bricked with a locked bootloader and am only able to access bootloader and download. I have been unable to find the correct RUU for my model:

kernel: lk
product: htc_ocnuhljapan
version: 1.0
max-download-size: 1560800000
serialno: FA76V1803367
slot-count: 0
current-slot:
imei: 356134080328971
version-main: 2.53.454.4
boot-mode: download
version-baseband: 8998-002772-1802141355
version-bootloader: 1.0.0.0000
mid: 2PZC20000
cid: 11111111

Can anyone help? I would greatly appreciate it. This device was supposed to be a birthday gift. Messed it up good.

Thank you

I have an HTC U11, and it's soft-bricked because I tried installing TWRP as my new recovery and it turned out to be corrupt. Now my phone is on a boot loop. Please help.

How about trying to install another recovery over the top of the old one see if that works, or just flash the correct ruu in download mode and just start over
