Hi Everyone.

I'm having some difficulty returning security to on and also having the tampered banner removed. I'm hoping to send my phone back to warranty.

I've used this guide to get me through it but it left me with S-OFF http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2751011

I've then tried this guide to get me back to stock with S-ON but it retriggered the tampered flag after I turned it off: http://theunlockr.com/2014/06/08/how...-one-m8-video/

Does anyone know if there is a way to enable security to on without triggering the tampered flag? Or if I'm doing something wrong with these steps.


Thanks for all your help in advance.

Find the appropriate RUU (If your carrier released it) and run it, it will remove the "tampered". FYI, next time dont worry about S-off so much. With S-off you could of put back on the stock recovery and relocked the bootloader and just sent it back w/ S-off, some 1% of devices mistakenly leave the factory w/ s-off.

HTC already has a record of you (based on your IMEI) unlocking the bootloader via HTCDev.com. You're going through a lot of effort to try to hide what HTC will already knows (that you modded the phone).

Htc know that just u take unlock code from them but they don't know if u use that code to unlock or not. U can just take that code and keeping for future so even if u have that code this doesn't mind u already unlock ur device. So if ur s off is always better to s on ur device for sending for repair
That just mine opinion 😊
