Default Stock ROM flash error

Hallo.

I did follow the guide how to flash stock ROM and came here:


6. Install *.zip from SD-card
7. Connect your device on PC
8. Run ADB and reboot on bootloader


So I installed the stock from SD successfuly, shut down and bootet back to recovery -> fastboot. Then I wrote to fastboot following "fastboot oem rebootRUU"which rebooted the HTC into a black looking HTC screen. So i wrote into CMD folowing "fastboot flash zip firmware.zip" and after a couple of seconds this came onto my screen:

D:\Downloads\Desire500>fastboot.exe flash zip firmware.zip
sending 'zip' (25034 KB)...
OKAY [ 3.467s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) adopting the signature contained in this image...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) zip info parsing...
FAILED (remote: 99 unknown fail)
finished. total time: 4.958s

I tried it a lot of times but still the same error. DO you got any ideas and why is the step with the firmware.zip neccessary? My phone started anyway...

Bootloader INFO:
Unlocked ; Z4U PVT SHIP S-ON L ; HBOOT 1.01 ; RADIO 14.08 ; Recovery (was before flashing to stock) CWM 6.0.3.7

Your bootloader needs to be locked. You can do this with the command fastboot oem lock.
Then flash the firmware.zip
Then re unlock your bootloader with your unlock token (careful, your data will be lost, make a back-up beforehand)
