    by saying "i cant remember which on it was" i assume you flashed a GSM only international 4.2.2 rom and now your phone is dead. is this correct ?

    that looks like a decrypted(unsigned) file. he will need to be s off to use it. if he is still s on,there is an official zip in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2250904

    direct link: Sprint_HTC_One_m7wls_1.29.651.10_RUU.zip | by OMJ for One

    assuming that you are on that same build.

    here are a few tips to check your fastboot issue:
    if you can get your phone recognized in fastboot again,enter fastboot getvar all and paste that output here :)

    edit:
    yes,that definately is an official ruu. once you run the setup as instructed,it starts an official utility,its just packaged oddly in a zip file rather than a .exe utility. i have run it,and extracted rom.zip,if needed. the only thing in question now,is wether its too old to flash to the phone,as im not sure what the current sprint build is.

    i apreciate all this now im going to different computers in my house trying to see if another computer will rocognize it i sound like such a noob but im coming from a samsung galaxy nexus so this phone is a bit different i flashed a rom and accidentally hit international (it was 4 am) so i understand it was completely my fault

    in a worse case,you can take rom.zip from the utility,rename it to PN07IMG(i think,hafta double check that one) and flash it from an sd card and OTG usb cable,eliminating the computer from the equation. im uploading it now,in case you have any trouble extracting it.

    looks like there is a 1.31.651.x update,so its a matter of what build your on,what hboot the OTA contains,and what hboot your on if youre on the OTA build.

    if you can get the fastboot getvar all to work,it will give us some very helpful info.

    when youre checking for connectivity,make sure you are in fastboot usb mode,and not hboot usb as the fastboot commands will not work in hboot

    well im stuck in the bootloader i cant get into recovery to flash anything if i could my problems would be solve but i cant get in there and i also cant use the factory reset option and im stuck in a bootloop and my computer doesnt recognize a device

    what i mentioned above would not require the computer,or a recovery. it would be letting the bootloader flash the ruu from an sd card,in an sd card adapter,plugged into a usb "on the go" cable.

    the one prollem,however,is you will need to relock your bootloader,for wich you do need a PC.

    i know your fustrated,but 99% of recognition/comunication prollems are remedied with the checklist above. you will need to actually try things,however,and not just look at the item and think "no,its not that"

    ive personally learned the hard way that not all usb cables are created equal,and that things running in the back ground on a PC can really screw things up.

    lets start with this:

    what is your hboot version?

    are you still unlocked?

    what version of windows are you using?

    have you tried the reboot-bootloader option in fastboot to see if it changes to fastboot usb?

    are you able to see it listed in device manager? if so,how is it listed? have you tried updating the drivers manually as described above?

    also,are you not getting a "list of devices attached" message from fastboot devices ?

    do you have fastboot in the directory that your working from(C:\Users\Janet) ? might give us a screen shot from the pc of that directory

    windows 7 is what i use personally :) vista and xp should be similar

    when i do that it just reboots bootloader and still says fastboot ac

    no it is not listed in the device manager i have manually uninstalled and reinstalled all drivers on all three computers

    no im not it looks exactly as it does in my last post

    im going to keep trying for a few days and ill keep trying things you guys tell me but after a while im just going to call asurion and drop the phone in water to get a new one

    We understand what's going on in the cmd window. What I'd like to see is open c:\users\Janet or c:\users\kaylanjosh in an explorer window and take a screenie of that,so we can see the contents.

    I'm starting to suspect your missing files on the pc

    this?
    and i also have my paths set up in windows settings to go to C:\android-sdk\tools and C:\android-sdk\platform-tools
    i think im usb bricked:( so would you guys advise against me doing the insurance thing

    that is still not quite what i wanted to see. you could be missing files,or you could have something not quite right when setting your paths.

    do you have any other htc devices you can test?

    you could always try using a "miniadb" file,and changing to it. if you have missing files or an error in your path,then this would still work. try this and see if you get a response:

    as for asurion,i dont know what to tell you there. i honestly dont know if flashing a gsm rom could have overwrote a partition thats screwing with your fastboot connectivity,tho my gut feeling is "no". i still think the phone may be fixable if you can get fastboot to conect.

    if you do decide to send it in,theres nothing to worry about. if youve paid the premiums,and are willing to pay the deductable,you can make a claim. they could care less if youve bricked your phone with a rom flash,lost it,or run it over with your car.

    if you are hoping to have sprint give you a new one for free,then you may have issue since your bootloader is obviously unlocked.

    you have tried different usb cables and ports,correct?

    I had a very frustrating time once with a USB hub. No matter what i did with drivers and adb/fastboot nothing worked. I finally hooked the usb cable directly to the usb ports on the motherboard and Boom it was fixed. That usb hub went in the trash later the same day. A faulty usb cable will do the same thing. Hope you get thing's sorted out soon.

    Well I must say this is the first actual "Brick" I have seen with the HTC One and to be honest I'm pretty shocked. Yours was the first time I ever heard of a One not going into Fastboot USB. Sorry I/we didn't have the answer. Good luck
