Thanks! I hope I can extract the firmware.zip out of this and RUU mode flash it on my Dev. I only want the updated firmware.

That's what I thought too, but now i'm hard bricked!!!

I used fastboot oem rebootRUU and then fastboot flash zip firmware.zip

I updated the firmware in my M7 a few times using this method without incident, but my M8 is now dead...

what was your cid? this was only for developer builds I redid my device twice with it...flashed a complete nand back up and then this ota through stock recovery... did you do the firmware upgrade to 1.54 euro? or any other firmware related flashes?

1 fastboot oem writecid BS_US001
2 fastboot oem readcid
3 fastboot reboot-bootloader
4 fastboot oem rebootRUU
5 fastboot flash zip nameofzip.zip
6 fastboot reboot-bootloader

Are you not super cid? When you say hard bricked what is your m8 doing now? Can you get to bootloader. You can't even flash unless you are soff or have true developer edition phone so I would assume you made your phone super cid too?

CID was BS_US002 on a Developer Edition. No firmware upgrades, it was original!!!

I was S-OFF with custom ROM, custom Kernel, and custom Recovery. That's it.

I removed the boot.img and recovery.img out of the zip prior to flashing.
The flash process appeared to work, and nearly all pieces installed successfully.
But after I issued a fastboot reboot, it was dead! No screen, no led, no nothing.

Computer doesn't see it as a device, thus adb or fastboot no longer work.
My first hard brick ever, and I hope my last!

Hate to hear that. I'm sure you have already tried this but just in case you haven't. Vol up and power for 10 sec then immediately vol down and power for 5 seconds. Even if you don't see bootloader try fastboot command. Try with and without phone plugged in.

Well sorry to hear this,probably reason it borked your device is it needs the stock recovery i think to finish flashing,didnt look at it@scriptong but that would be my guess...I always flash stock recovery before flashing an ruu or firmware zip.

Tried those like fifty times! My device is is bricked harder than a diamond...

Wish I knew what exactly happened so I don't do it again. As I said in my previous post, I've done this same thing on my M7 several times without a hitch. Only difference I saw this time was that the RUU flash routine didn't stop after flashing the hboot like it did on my M7 and make me run it one more time to get the rest of the firmware flashed. To be sure I got it all, I flashed it a second time anyway. That was the only difference I saw!

I've ran the RUU flash command on my M7 with a custom recovery several times without incident. Didn't see why it would be any different on the M8, but something is. Wish I would have had an MD5 to verify my download, but it extracted fine so I think it was good.

Only one thing I found that was different from the M7 to the M8.

In the M7 it used hbootpreupdate:3
In the M8 it used hbootpreupdate:12

Wish I knew what this does different.
