I've had the Vodafone HTC One M8 a little over a month now and as in the title, I'm rooted with twrp.

I've got a stock recovery from here and a stock nandroid from here which match CID VODAP001 / 1.54.161.10. I want to return to stock recovery and install the nandroid backup to allow me to be able to get the 4.4.3 OTA update. I'm currently s-on so I have done some research and gathered that this is a problem with wanting to get OTAs and returning to stock. My hboot version is 3.16.0.0000.

Where do I start with the stock recovery and nandroid? I'm currently using a macbook if it is needed for anything during the process.

What I want at the end of this is to be on a rooted htc one m8 with 4.4.3, is this possible and how do I accomplish this?

If you need anymore information/version numbers which can help me get to my goal, I'll be happy provide, but I think everything which is needed should be there up above.

Thanks for reading this, and I hope you have an awesome day .

1. extract the backup zip then transfer the backup folder to your sdcard or external_sd (depends on which your TWRP is set up to) TWRP/BACKUPS/YourDeviceSerialNo/FOLDER here

2. Reboot to recovery, restore that backup

3. Reboot to bootloader/fastboot mode, fastboot flash the stock recovery.
Never use a Mac so not sure how the command is ... should be the same how you flash the TWRP, something like ./fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

4. Reboot and check the OTA and install

5. Complete .. reboot to recovery

6. flash TWRP again

7. install SuperSU

8. Done .. you have a 4.4.3 with root (as your aim is a stock rooted 4.4.3)

Where do I get the backup.zip? Did you mean Nandroid backup of the stock?

Yes the nandroid was ment by backup. You can get it in the backup collection thread.

If you've read carefuly you have seen that the OP of this thread is S-On as well and the guideline provided took this into account. Thus it will work for you as well
