Tried it and it said that my rom was not a sense rom???

What about down grading to KK? Is that possible?
Make sure the rom you are on is as close to stock as possible.
Downgrading to a KK rom = yes
Downgrading firmware = no
Easiest way to run Sunshine is to RUU.

I tried it right after reinstalling the 6.16 RUU and it did not fly.
I can't remember if I was rooted at the time (yesterday)

This is what i have now. The copy I downloaded did not have a date or version.
It should work on this 5.02 RUU?
The Sunshine apk should look for updates before it begins.
You cannot use the 5.02 RUU because you are s-on.
Have you tried going to their IRC channel to see if they can guide you?

I would try their IRC channel I'm kinda out of ideas.

Thanks for your help.
I'm not a Sprint customer and never have been and it's been a while since I have had an HTC product.
My problems would be solved if I could downgrade the firmware, I did install a unsecured Kernel but it did not matter.

Kernel is most likely the problem.

Use the most recent sprint ruu to return to stock

I just went through this yesterday. I was having the same problem.

I'm on sprint so my solution should apply.

1. Return to stock with the sprint Lollipop ruu
2. Get unlock from htcdev - - > unlock your bootloader
3. Flash the latest version of twrp
4. Boot into twrp, then reboot system.
4a. Twrp should prompt you to install su and obtain root
4b. Let twrp root your system.
5. Let the phone complete the su install via twrp
6. Get sunshine s-off
7. Pay $25
8. Enjoy s-off

I was able to reach the hidden screen and select the "sim lock" but backing out and rebooting from the sim unlock helper screen did not work.
I had to select "reboot" from the same menu located just a couple of items up from the Sim lock selection. Make sure "Data" is on and GSM is selected.
I was successful only on the "Viper 1.0.0 rom.
I now have a working T-mobile connection..
