HTC One M7 Softbricked
So I'm a little out of my depth right now. I've managed to get my head around my own handset, a Galaxy S4, which I can now mess about with with confidence when it comes to Roms, Rooting and that kind of business (seems very easy through Odin).
Now, a colleague of mine from work has managed to Soft Brick his HTC One M7 (UK, H3G), and I volunteered to help him try and resolve that.
When it came to me, it was stuck on either the HTC Quietlt Brilliant boot logo, or if V-Down and Power was held, we could get it in to the Bootloader.
From here, I have managed to get Recovery on as that was also missing (TWRP at the moment, but CWM is also doable, I managed both).
Now I tried to side load some Roms. ALL of which have errored in their own unique ways. I've tried EXE Stock RUUs (failed, because there's already nothing on the device, and the bootloader was unlocked), I've tried ZIP stock RUUs (also failed with a plethora of reasons).
I've managed to break recovery and be forced to set them back up again.
I then noticed something about Mounting drives? So, I think I managed to repartition drives etc, but this is my main downfall, I dont really understand partitioning on mobile devices like this -- at all.
I just found this magical list of details that may help me, but right now I don't know how.

I'm sorry if this is a weak *** post, I guess I should stick to meddling with my S4, but I just wanted to help a brother out and try to remedy his M7. Any pointers you find people can give? I dumped 8 hours in to this last night, researching, trying new tools, trying to learn new lingo, but all to no avail. I can't get an OS on this thing for love, nor money.
