Unhappy [Q] Unable to OTA update after HTCDev Bootloader Unlock

It's been awhile since I've messed with ROMs, and much has changed. I think I might have bit off more than I can chew, but hopefully it's a quick fix. I've been trying to scan for solutions, but so far no luck.

About a week ago I decided I was tired of avoiding apps that had crazy permissions and decided to get root on my phone so I could use AppOpps. I went through the HTCDev route and unlocked the bootloader. I got stuck when firewater, temproot & Weaksauce wouldn't work.

So, I relocked the bootloader (shows **relocked**) and figured I'd wait until someone pushed an updated tool. Got an OTA notice, and now I can't update the software. The update fails about 1/3 of the way through, going from green circled arrows to red triangled exclamation.

I've tried using fastboot to push the OTA ROM, but have had no success. I can flash the newest firmware successfully (as noted here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2766604), but still no joy on the OEM ROM.

Do I really have to go to the trouble of flashing older firmware, downgrading the HBoot and ROM to an older version, etc.. to get up and running with a **locked** phone that will get OTA update?

Such a PITA to get control over my data/permissions.

Thanks in advance for help.

Weaksauce does not work on the Sprint variants.
I would give Firewater another shot as s-off will save you headaches like this down the road. I would also suggest doing it before you update HTC has a way of making thing harder for us with every OTA.
If your phone is inoperable at the moment use this guide to get up and running.

So far, the phone seems to be working fine, other than deleting my Amazon saved games

If I run the RUU as suggested: Sprint_HTC_One_m7wls_4.06.651.4_RUU, will I still be in a good position to try firewater again?

That RUU won't work it's older then the software you are currently on.
Give firewater a try without using weaksauce

You are correct, the RUU did not work. It failed completely on Windows 8.1 x64, so I ran in on Windows 7 x64, and it stopped at about 4%. The phone screen was black with the HTC logo and it just stayed like that for over an hour (I took the dog for a walk).

The Boot reports the following:

*** RELOCKED ***
M7_WLS PVT SHIP S-ON RH
HBOOT-1.57.0000
RADIO-1.01.20.0515
OpenDSP-v32.120.274.0909
OS-5.03.651.3
eMMC-boot 2048MB
May 15 2014, 16:31:22.0


Once the phone is booted up, the Settings->About reports the following:
Software version: 4.06.651.9
Android 4.4.2
HTC Sense 5.5

Can an OTA flash the firmware and die before updating the software?
Do I need to flash the firmware to match the reported software in the system?

At the moment, all I can find is an older RUU, not the latest/greatest.

I've found a Sprint_HTC_One_m7wls_4.06.651.4_RUU download, but my phone is reporting Software version 4.06.651.9

Would this be close enough?

If your running Sprint it should be fine
