Yes just flashes like a normal Rom from TWRP recovery, it will replace your custom recovery with stock and your Rom.

I think your firmware is probably still older than this reset.zip though. I'm not sure if that will cause a problem.

So you could also download this OTA extract the firmware from it and flash it manually to bring your firmware in line with the reset.zip

That will require relocking the bootloader though but you can always unlock again after.

yeah the Guru_Reset requires unlocked bootloader and TWRP 2.6.3.3 custom recovery.

To take the over the air updates it's Important that you choose to install
stock recovery
and say no to root in the guru reset Aroma installer.

Good luck !!

The firmware may indeed need updated but I'm not positive

Probably best to do it then in that case, better safe than sorry thanks.

Ok so hopefully this will tell you everything you need.

Download the ota file as well. Then open it on your pc and extract the firmware.zip from it and place it in your Fastboot folder. Then follow this small guide I put together.

Ok so the plan is to upgrade your software to complete Stock 2.24.161.1, Rom, recovery and firmware will all be on the same os version and unmolested stock condition. After which you will be able to update you phone with official ota updates.

Prepare the files, your pc and phone for the procedure. Rename the 2.24.161.1.zip to firmware.zip and place it in your Fastboot folder on your pc. Connect your phone to mass storage with usb and copy the reset.zip to your internal storage/sdcard.

Ok let's get started. Reboot your phone into recovery. And flash the reset.zip just like installing a custom Rom. Select install and choose the reset.zip. Once it's done your Rom, recovery and radio will be back to stock. (if you choose to install the radio, it's optional at this stage as it will be done with the firmware anyway.

Now we need to upgrade the firmware since the OTA update will expect to find version 2.24.161.1 but your firmware is older than that so the OTA may fail to install.

Reboot the phone to the bootloader and Connect fastbootusb. Now open your Fastboot command line and type

Code:
fastboot erase cache
Code:
fastboot oem lock
Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
<--- case sensitive.

The phone will reboot to a black screen with a Silver HTC LOGO. This is RUU mode. Now we're going to flash the firmware.

Code:
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
The first flash will be short. It's just a preupdate preparing the hboot for the new firmware. So we need to do the same command again.
Code:
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
The second flash will take a little longer and this time it will flash the full firmware. The progress bar on the phone screen will not reach 100% this is normal as long as the command window has completed its output the flash is done.

Code:
fastboot reboot-bootloader
You should now see your new firmware version 2.24.161.1 in the bootloader. And that's it

Reboot the phone and complete the Rom setup. You should start getting notifications for OTA updates almost immediately. If not just go to settings>about and check for updates to force it. Take all the OTA's up to the latest and you're done

Completely stock software. If you decide to reroot make a nandroid of the Stock Rom before you root it. And copy it to your pc. This way you can return to stock easily for future OTA updates

Well done m8, glad you got it sorted. You shouldn't be scared of flashing a new Rom though. The only thing that went wrong last time was you flashed a Rom for a different version of the M7.

As long as you stick with m7_ul roms you'll be fine but it's understandable you would want to take some time to process what happened. It's never fun thinking you bricked an expensive device such as the HTC one.

If you ever decide you want to try a Rom feel free to pm me for some guidance. For now relax and enjoy your working phone

@Dani84 Hi m8 just seen your PM. Yeah ARHD is a good place to start, it's quite close to stock but with xposed support and sense 6 toolbox.

Very smooth reliable Rom with no major bugs that I know of. I've been using ARHD since version 43 and I just love it. Version 80.0 is on the Horizon (Android 4.4.3).

I think I warned you already about twrp but just incase make sure to flash twrp 2.6.3.3 to preserve your os information.

Download the Rom and drop it on your sd card. Reboot to recovery and flash the Rom from the install menu in twrp. Make sure to do a full data wipe in the aroma installer as your changing from stock to custom Rom.
