    So what rom are you wanting to use? And do you have a custom recovery like TWRP installed?

    So you have already unlocked your bootloader. I'm just trying to figure out what state your device is in.

    So it won't boot? Is that the issue?

    Yea, it wont boot. I have twrp installed and the bootloader is unlocked. Haven't really decided on a rom yet, But I was looking at most recent posts thinking that might be the best bet. This one stood out. https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=276233
    -but if there is one you would recommend i would be willing to try it.

    So, will I not be able to use this phone with another carrier's sim card? If so, I spose i'll just want to reinstall the stock rom and getting functioning again so I can sell/use it.

    Supercid is a sim unlock. Whether or not the carrier you want to switch to will use the same bands or not is the question.

    So did your carrier blacklist your phone for unpaid bills? If so, I don't think it will work on another carrier if it's blacklisted.

    It's not blacklisted as far as I know. They just said that the account holder has to unlock it.

    Personally, I would use the manual method in the instructions. You will be wiping the device though, so backup anything you care about before doing it.

    Also, you need to relock the bootloader first. I believe the command for your device would be:
    fastboot oem lock


    Been a long time since I've messed with an HTC so read all the instructions carefully and make sure you're comfortable with proceeding.
