    Default Nearly bricked Verizon HTC One device, or at least its feeling that way.

    The phone is a VZW HTC One. I have S-off with Hboot 1.55, bootloader unlocked and I was rooted prior to the flashing of TIKTAK going sideways. Now I can ADB when i'm in recovery and I can flash new recovery mods. I know this means that I'm not completely done for.

    When I let the phone try to boot without going into the boot loader it sits at the green HTC screen with the red distribution statement. In this state it tries to make an MTP connection with windows but it doesn't install the drivers properly.

    I don't seem to have an internal file structure. I tried downloading HTC1guru's nandroid backup but TWRP doesn't recognize it in either its zipped form or extracted. CWM doesn't seem to recognize any file system at all. I have to use someone elses backup because I was dumb and didn't move my backup off the device before dropping a bomb in the file system.

    TWRP is asking for a password that I don't know (and didn't set) every time it opens

    I also tried RUU but I never get to the silver HTC screen.

    I'm at a loss as to how to proceed. Any thoughts would be most appreciated. I'm pretty handy in the IT world but this is my first time flashing a custom ROM, it may be the last. Thanks in advance.

    Any reboot that doesn't go to recovery or fastboot just hangs on the green HTC screen. If I try to RUU this is what happens:

    In order to run an RUU, don't you have to relock the bootloader? At least, that's what I had to do with my HTC Vivid.

    Do you know if its sufficient to use fastboot oem lock? If I do this the bootloader indicates "relocked", or do I have to find a way to make it say locked?

    Thanks.

    I think the bootloader has to actually be locked. But I could be wrong. Still haven't fully modded my One.
