HTC preloaded some image files for the "stickers" in the duo effects camera. They are preloaded to /data/preload so you can either flash the zip at the bottom of the second post or manually copy them over to that directory. They (HTC) haven't fully implemented this yet... so you probably won't even notice them missing. The also preload calc and flashlight app this way too.

NOTE- This will work for S-on users provided their current software level is at or below this version. S-off users can user this either way.

OPTION 1)
Rename download file to 0P3PIMG.zip. Make sure you use an SD card formatted to fat32!! (otherwise the phone might not see it) Place file on physical SD card (not internal phone memory)... i repeat physical SD card. Boot up phone to bootloader mode and the phone will auto-detect the file and prompt to install it. Follow any remaining prompts to allow the RUU to flash the software to your phone.

-or-

OPTION 2)
Download file into working fastboot directory. Boot phone to fastboot mode and connect to pc. Type in the following commands.
fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip RUU_T6_Sprint_WWE_1.16.651.4.zip

first time you run this it will be short... so run it a second time


fastboot flash zip RUU_T6_Sprint_WWE_1.16.651.4.zip
The command prompt output will show you details as it flashes each partition and will show you when it has completed. At this time the green bar on the phone will appear 99% of the way across the screen.. Completely normal!~ Issue the next command to kick it out of RUU mode or optionally flash the custom recovery TWRP if you intend to root/flash custom roms and THEN issue the below command to get out of RUU mode.

fastboot reboot
(note) if you just want to reboot back to bootloader you can issue the command fastboot reboot-bootloader This will allow you to boot directly to recovery and start flashing/rooting fun.

I don't own this model phone... so if someone would like to capture the output of the command prompt I would be happy to add it to the OP similar to how I have my VZW ruu threads.

Not a problem. Also, under my android file host I have a mini sdk zip. You try using that on your pc too...it's a newer version of Fastboot/adb. All you have to do is unzip it and use it from wherever you unzip it to.

So I did this, no errors, but when I rebooted it went right into Cyanogenmod. Am I missing a step?

It takes a while ~5mins, it loads the file, then checks the signature, and then says ROM parsing start (for 5 seconds) and then tells me to press the power button to reboot.
