Htc one M9 stuck in bootloader

Hi,

My one year old htc one M9 used to work fine, until a day when it discharged and went off (because of no charge). I recharged turned it on but it ended up stuck on the htc start up logo. I thought it was a hardware issue so I took it to a technician who tried to flush but they couldnt get it working. Instead the phone now starts up to the bootloader with these infos:

*******Software status: Modified******

  • LOCKED*******
    • S-ON*******

*******Security Warning*******

<vol up> .......

<vol down> ...

<power>....

REBOOT

REBOOT TO BOOTLOADER

REBOOT TO DOWNLOAD MODE

REBOOT TO RECOVERY MODE

POWER DOWN

I have tried to factory reset and stuffs to get the phone back on but nothing worked.

Any ideas? A way to reinstall the whole system may be?

Thanks.

*******Software status: Modified******

Well that's bad. I have managed to flash this one time without Software status changing to modified.

Once the bootloader gets unlocked it's a big hassle to restore original firmware back onto the phone.
