    If you're switching between different ROMs it is best to wipe data (factory reset). Download Titanium Back Up. You can wipe data and restore all apps and app data so switching between roms will be painless.

    CWM and TWRP are recoveries. You pick one. Can't use both. They both do the same but you might like one over the other. I'm currently using TWRP.

    When I had the One X and the S3, I almost always used CWM. When I got the One I decided to try TWRP and boy was I missing out. I am not complaining about CWM, it is a great recovery, however TWRP's interface in itself provides a satisfaction I never got from CWM. Everything is a tap away and it looks awesome (there are even themes you can flash for it, lol), and it just feels more feature-packed but maybe that's just me.

    And as mentioned above, if you're going for different ROMs (as in ARHD to TrickDroid, for instance) then it would be better to wipe the SD card and install the ROM, whereas if you're going for an updated version of the same ROM (ARHD 11 to ARHD 12.1, for instance) then you can just flash without wiping anything, which is what is referred to as a "dirty flash".

    Ok so I just find a rom that works with twrp right, back up my data, follow the flashing instructions, restore, and I'll be good right?

    The best thing to do is factory reset in recovery, wipe cache/dalvik, and use the superwipe script. I have a link to the script below. You will never have issues following this process. Just make sure you nandroid first.

    Most all roms will install with TWRP, not all roms will install on your phone. Be sure you are using the rom for your model. As I have read and understand the M7 (AT&T HTC One ) will flash most any HTC One rom,as is with the international , but say Sprint uses its own rom , Check out the XDA forums for the right one.

    Which ROM did you try to flash? And did the installation complete 100% and report success at the end before rebooting? You can open the ROM.zip (whatever the ROMs name is, of course) and extract the boot.img from it, put it in your fastboot folder, put your device in fastboot mode and then type

    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    then reboot the device and it should boot if the installation was correct in the first place. Otherwise, go to recovery and reinstall the ROM (and wipe virtual SD card if asked).

    Have you tried flashing the boot.img as I mentioned above? And if that didn't work, try reflashing TWRP recovery from fastboot (I'm sure you know how to do it since you already did it before) and then reinstall ARHD. If none of that works, do like pergerson did and install a RUU.

    I've done both methods before and I can say they both worked. Just had this issue like two days ago and reflashed cwm.

    You don't need a back-up to run the RUU. Which company are you with?
