Ok hang on! dont leave please. i spend 25 hours last night figure this out and you are my hero right now
so it now says unlocked.
but i still have no recovery installed. and no working firmware either since i wiped the hole thing by mistake.
whats next step? i live in sweden (europe) so what i want to do is go back to stock rom then relock bootloader and no root.

Try this zip for root:
Even though i don't think you really need root at this point since you will flash a stock rom afterwards and lose root again.
ah...the stock ROM you downloaded is from a TWRP backup right? It's not flashable by recovery and i'm not sure if you can sideload it.
I think you will need to extract it and copy it to your external sdcard so that you will then restore from TWRP
Edit: Do you have a card reader that you can use to copy all these things from PC to sdcard? It will make your life a lot easier
Whenever I try to send files to my phone via fastboot I get an error saying that it cannot open the target folder. I think this might have to do with the folder structure. I've tried /storage/sdcard/... as well as /data/media/0/... I've tried similar for ext sd as well. What is the correct folder/file structure for the HTC One m8 GSM?
Basically I only have bootloader / recovery available and cannot get twrp to install a zip. I think this is because I am using a twrp backup so I think I need the files to be unzipped? I'm stuck though as I can't figure out how to send the files to the phone!
