    So I recently replaced my stolen AT&T HTC M8 with an a refurbished one and decided to root it for my first time. Unfortunately, I fell into the common mistake of using the outdated Hasoon2000 All-in-one toolkit. I'm not well-knowledged in phones, but I definitely want to learn (which is why I am here). I know I should've been more cautious and prepared prior, but all I can do is learn and move forward now. I've spent a few hours researching and trying to understand the process, but there is a lot of technical aspects that I haven't grasped yet. Well, here is my situation:

    My phone is currently soft bricked and I am unable to access my phone's UI when I boot it. After the HTC One logo, the phone will be black and consistently bring up, "unfortunately AT&T ready2go has stopped". It will also say that the UI has stopped and I have no choice but to turn off my phone. Prior to this, I had an issue with Superuser where there was no binary so I tried to re-install it thinking that would do something; I then performed a factory reset (thinking it would somehow fix it). I realized after this that TWRP and SU were both out of date and now I'm here not sure what to do. I would like to be able to flash the RUU to revert back to stock and go through the rooting process manually but I haven't had much luck with the .exe file so far; do I need to have S-OFF and/or relock my bootloader? If so, how do I do that? I'm still learning, and it's a lot to pick up, so bear with me please as I try to piece together everything. I've been searching through the forums, but it hasn't really helped me too much.

    Here is what my Hboot says:
    *** Software Status: Modified ***
    eMMC-boot 2048MB

    Getvar All (not exactly sure what this is, but I saw other help posts listing it and figured it's useful)

    If anyone could give me some guidance/clarity then I would truly appreciate it! Thank you!

    Welcome to the forums. You should be able to RUU back to stock with a Windows machine. You can download the file from HTCs site, and then use Windows to open the program that comes with the ROM file.
