Hi all,

Hope this topic hasn't already been covered a million times.

Here's where I'm at,

I've unlocked by bootloader, that's all no root or custom recovery.

Now when i try to do a OTA update i get the dreaded red triangle. very frustrating!

I've tried fastboot oem lock, but it says relocked, not locked and my OTA update still won't work.

I've searched high and low for a RUU for Telstra Australia, to no avail..... DAM IT!!!

Can anyone help???

If I root, use firewater to soff the use scotty's to relock, will the OTA work then? How would i get rid of the root?

I have some understanding of fastboot, adb and flashing but I'm still a bit of a noob so go easy.

Sorry if i posted in the wrong place.

Because you could use Guru found in HTC One Development which can Lock, Relock and Unlock the bootloader. If your not rooted then you would be fine to receive the update after reflashing the stock recovery.

I believe stock recovery is what you need and all stock system files in place to take OTA. I had my Max S-OFF, unlocked and rooted and it still let me take the Kit Kat update, so really not sure why you can't, being only unlocked. Are you sure you didn't alter any other files?

Yeah I'm sure, definitely only unlocked. It's driving me crazy! I wasted hours trying to work this out.

Here's the error msg I get,

What is that TuneIn.apk i see in the error? Could be you are missing that and it is a file it looks for.

Hmmm, that was a factory installed app that seems to have gone missing since I unlocked the boot loader, along with the HTC torch app. I will install it and see what happens...

After a bit more reading, unlocking the boot loader clears all data from the phone. Including a few apps that are preloaded in a data folder. It appears the update looks for these app.

That sucks, i wonder how I got mine to update after I unlocked, lucky I guess. Looks like you might be on the right track tho, let me know how it turns out.

I know I didn't relock to get ota. Perhaps its a device based thing. On sprint for instance I never have seen the relocked or tampered tags.
