Default Need some software help PLEASE!!!

I will start by saying I've never done any updating, rooting, unlocking, etc on any Android device. I used to do some with Blackberry but I've just stayed stock with my Android devices.

I'm currently using the HTC Droid DNA and I chatted online today with an HTC support person regarding my issues. I bought my phone from an individual last year and apparently he must have unlocked the bootloader. I'm running Android Version 4.1.1 and my software # is 1.15.605.4 701RD. Apparently I've missed the last 2 updates and I don't have the option from my phone to manually check for updates. Based on my chat today with HTC there's nowhere online they will allow me to download the updates. They mentioned taking it to a Verizon store but I don't want to do that. I would really like to be able to get the newest software version. Can anyone help me get the newest updates?

If it's rooted, install flash image gui from play store, install twrp recovery and then flash santod040's stock rom, to bring your phone to the latest stuff

Now first thing first. Try a factory reset.. backup your data first. If that doesn't fix the issue comment and Ill tell you what to do next.

Are you trying to be on the latest firmware as it comes from HTC (Stock), or the latest firmware modified with custom options and tweaks as in a custom ROM?
