Hi guys, I am having some major issues with my HTC one phone. I was trying to install a rom (ViperOne), but that failed. I thought I knew what I was doing so I didn't wipe cache, etc. I went back into TWRP and tried to restore from backup (I had previously made a backup), but no backups were found! Since then, I've been trying many things. I just want to go back to a stock, fresh install of android. I am a noob at this and have no idea what to do next.

What I can do:
- Fastboot.
- ADB.
- Reach TWRP recovery, and flash other recoveries.

What I cannot do:
- Install other roms via TWRP.


When I try to install a .zip rom, here is the error that occurs:
Quote:

E: Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard'.
Error flashing zip '/sdcard/cm-11/20141129-NIGHTLY.zip'
Updating partition details...
FAILED

I'm very angry about this and I hope I do not have to buy a new phone.
Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Three questions, just three.
Are you S-ON?
What fastboot/OS version are you running if any?
Code:
fastboot getvar all
What version of TWRP/CWM are you running?

S-ON: I'm pretty sure. How can I verify this?
Fastboot version: How do I check this? EDIT: Bootloader version seems to be 0.5.
TWRP version: 2.5.0.0

Thanks for the quick reply

...ah, I see you missed the command.
If you run this using fastboot:
Code:
fastboot getvar all
It'll spit out all the necessary information.
Do you want to upgrade to TWRP 2.7.1.1+? Just go for the latest. It generally has a pretty good chance of working.

You are S-ON, you're currently running 1.27.531.11. And you really need to go back and edit out your IMEI and SERIALNO.
S-ON means you can flash an RUU containing the same or higher version of the current software, you can't go back. To be on the safe side the download link below contains the RUU for the same version you currently have.
An RUU will restore your device to an out of the box condition with all the default software provided by HTC.

OMG.
Got it working after like 15 hours. Would just like to thank you so much, was a simple fix. Whoever else stumbles upon this thread, consider updating your TWRP to the latest version.

Sorry for using all capitals... in advanced!
PLEASE REMOVE YOUR SERIALNO AND IMEI FROM YOUR POST (#5)!
Someone could clone your IMEI and do far worse things using that. So please go back and edit it out. Or plain delete the fastboot output.
