Converting back to Sense from GPe prior to running the RUU is what I was afraid of. Oh well, I guess I'll have to set aside a couple of hours this weekend. Thanks for the clarification, guys!

This was my first full day running the phone since I converted to DevEd and the first thing I've noticed is that the battery life is through the roof. With moderately heavy usage, I currently have about 40% of battery life left. The phone would have been dead by 6 pm when I was running GPe.

Default Some Help Please!

Hello guys, I converted a BS_US001 to gpe, but I want to go back to stock sense. Yesterday I followed this youtube video http://youtu.be/BLbJaSMfFks to restore the newest stock nandroid backup available 2.22....4, I was able to copy the files and restore everything but for some reason after restoring the boot up of the OS was extremely slow it was taking 5 mins or so to fully boot, I think that my mistake was not doing a "Full custom wipe" in TWRP or a compatibility problem I do not know. I ended up re-installing the GPE RUU.

Today I want to start fresh, could you guys please help me with a few simple steps?

I think this is the order I have to follow:

1. Change CID to 11111111
2. Flash 1.54.401.5
3. Boot into stock recovery to Factory reset
4. Install custom recovery TWRP
5. perform a full custom wipe formating system partition
6. reboot into fastboot and change CID to BS_US001
7. Reboot Fastboot and run RUU (or do I have to have a backup restored first?)

I am missing something? Thank you.

Note: I was able to find this RUU_M8_UL_K44_SENSE60_SECURITY_BrightstarUS_WWE_1. 54.1540.10_Radio_1.16.21331931.LA11G_20.31A.4145.0 2L_release_372510_signed_2.exe

*UPDATE: I've messing around with this RUU to avoid the error 59 previously described and I found a great tutorial to extract the RUU zip from the .exe, unfortunately the zip appears to be invalid and cannot be opened (someone mentioned that Zip Repair Pro does the trick but that sounds kinda messy) I tried to flash the 0P6BIMG.zip and the error I get is this:

sending 'zip' (633306 KB)...
OKAY [ 38.593s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) shift signature_size for header checking...
FAILED (remote: 32 header error)
finished. total time: 40.025s

Could you guys please share the BrightstarUS RUU again just to confirm if the RUU that I downloaded is corrupted or not?

Thank you again!
