Hi Guys,

I recently got my hands on a used M7 but noticed that it is still stuck in Andriod 4.1.2. I tried running the RUU but when I check for OTA updates it still says no updates available.

I also discovered that there is a label that says this is a test device, perhaps that stops the device from getting OTA updates?

Here is what I got from fastboot:

(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.43.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4A.13.3231.20
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 1.26.707.5
(bootloader) version-misc: PVT SHIP S-OFF
(bootloader) serialno:
(bootloader) imei:
(bootloader) meid: 00000000000000
(bootloader) product: m7_ul
(bootloader) platform: HBOOT-8064
(bootloader) modelid: PN071****
(bootloader) cidnum: 11111111
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 4230mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic
(bootloader) security: off
(bootloader) build-mode: SHIP
(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT

It will be great if someone can help me update this device Thanks!

In your post remove the imei and serialno.
You need to change your MID to PN0714000 and your CID to HTC__044 (eight characters). If you still do not receive OTA, here is a custom unsigned RUU 3.63.707.4 that you flash in bootloader. Or you could flash Guru_reset_m7_3-63-707-4-zip in TWRP.

majmoz, sorry to bug in, but i would recommend PN0710000 or PN0714000 because PN0711000 is the m7_u, and the OP has an m7_ul

Hi,

Thanks for reminding me about the imei & serial#.

I assume this is the tool that I should use to change the CID and MID?

Sounds like flashing the custom RUU is an easier choice to me. I shall try changing the CID and MID first.

I'm in Hong Kong, but I don't really mind which area as long as I get the Andriod 4.4 now and all the future HTC upgrades (i.e Andriod L).

Sorry, I'm out at the moment to give detailed instructions, but you could go for PN0710000 and HTC__001 (European unbranded) and flash a x.xx.401.x ruu

not to jump nkk71 replies, but I just changed my phone to Dev edition last night in 30mins, it was very easy and got OTA's straight after booting.

Change cid to BS_US001 (always 8 characters)

Change MID to PN0712000 using this tool in a custom recovery: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2535365

download this firmware, put your phone into RUU mode and don't forget to flash it twice: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23329332407579901

download this RUU and run it with your phone in fastboot USB mode: http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/ruu_m7_u..._signed_3-exe/

DONE !!!
