I have a M8 GPE unlocked/un-rooted/s-on with stock 4.4.4 and today i said that I will not wait for the OTA to come, and decided to flash it myself.
When going to recovery i saw that there is no option to adb sideload a file, strange, so I booted in TWRP (not flashed) and tried to sideload from there. I could not make the ADB sideload work in TWRP also because of some errors, and I tried the install zip option. When flashing the OTA zip I got an error saying that the required version is *4.4.4* and that i had *4.4.2*. I know for sure that I had 4.4.4 because i got the update myself and apply it automatically from within android.
Trying to do a factory reset in TWRP in order to try again the OTA zip file, i wiped the system partition (my bad) and since then i am stucked in bootloader/recovery without any way to boot into OS.
I tried to reboot into RUU and flash RUU-HTC_One_M8_GPE_5.0.1-3.11.1700.5.zip, but i get the error (probably because i am s-on):
target reported max download size of 1830617088 bytes sending 'zip' (635732 KB)... OKAY [ 26.906s] writing 'zip'... (bootloader) zip header checking... (bootloader) zip info parsing... FAILED (remote: 99 unknown fail) finished. total time: 27.080s
As I understood I could do s-off only from OS, and for me that ism not possible
Thanks for the help in advance,
