Default [Q] HTC One X - Can't Install RUU

Hi,

I've managed to mess up my HTC One X quite badly.
From poking around with fastboot I've got the following information from it;

PJ4610000
Main Version 1.26.401.2
Cid - none
Radio 1.1204.90.13
0.43.0000

I know how I messed it up. I'd not realised you couldn't install Jellybeam roms onto 0.43.000. One Cyanogenmod (cm-10.2.0-endeavoru) later and bingo, bootloop.
Didn't help that I had less than 30% battery life.

Anyway, I've now used a script to get the battery life up - but I haven't been able to run any RUU's on this - I downloaded two;
RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_O2_UK_1.26.206.2_Radio_1.120 4.90.13_release_251230_signed
and
RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_S_Vodafone_UK_2.17.161.4_Rad io_2.1204.137D1.21_release_280390_signed

I'm thinking now that I cant do these either because I'm on 0.43.000 or because I need generic.

Ideally I want it to be latest Android and generic stock. It's for my wife, so she doesn't need superuser - but I'd like it so If I can get there too, great.

i've read through the main sticky's, but can't work out what the steps are I should be taking to get it out of the bootloop it's in and onto stock

What do I download? Do I need to do this;
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1660807

Or this;
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2069904
whilst I do it?

Help much appreciated, as I seem to be stuck at this stage.

Download a 1.26.401 Ruu or a 1.29.401 Ruu. You are trying to install the wrong ruu because the main number is different !

My advice :

Download the 1.29.401 ruu and relock the bootloader, put the phone in fastboot usb mode. Then install the ruu with admin rights and let it install. Reboot the phone and go to settings-about-software updates and check for ota....if they are there install all of them you can get !

If there are no ota's available you look for the 2.17.401 ruu and install that the same way as the 1.29 and then do the ota........still no ota, download the 3.14.401 ruu and install that too. After that you can install any rom out here.

Right so;

1 - Download a 1.29.401 Ruu.
Ok, so like -
RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_HTC_Europe_1.29.401.12_Radio _2.1204.127.19_release_271851_signed.exe?

Having real problems finding a rom download, these all seem to be on bugsylawson.com which my ISP blocks, or Hotfile which is down, but I'll look into that.
So I run that, with the device in Fastboot and enough battery life, which I use my batch script for?

2. Then 'relock the bootloader'. Is that running fastboot oem lock, when in fastboot, using the .exe in the folder and a command line?
Any special to do 'admin rights'? Or is that my local Windows account you mean?

I'm a bit worried about running OTA as apparently, some of these RUU's for the One X the OTA updates don't work - 401.6, I think?
Not sure if this affects the one I suggested?

3. Then run another RUU to upgrade if OTA doesn't work?

Is that about right (and thanks for the help, obviously!)

1 correct, try this thread for download links

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2094113

2: fastboot command is correct, leave the phone in the bootloader and start the ruu.exe from the pc, right click the file and select run as administrator

Ota should be there unless HTC/carrier has took them from the server, hence the advise that if it doesn't work to install a higher ruu after you tried.

3: correct

No joy with that site, I get;

This website has been reported as unsafe
www.androidruu.com

Then if I proceed;

"Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/ruu/public_html/admin/dbconnect.php on line 11
Could not connect: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)" when I try to download any RUU.

Maybe Google the whole ruu name, there a couple of them on hotfile hosting.

I was planning to put a small selection to nu dev host. Nut thats of no use now. Not earlier than tonight

Actually I don't know the programing language, it may be PC or network security something like that.
We can do download at this site no problem.

The site works to the page you showed, I got that SQL issue from any rom link.

But luckily I've found RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_HTC_Europe_1.29.401.12_Radio _2.1204.127.19_release_271851_signed
elsewhere.

Running it now and it failed.

So now I'm showing;

Radio as 2.1204.127.19
And bootloader as 0.43.

Oh no, hang on, I've not locked the bootlader, maybe that's why. I'll try again.
