Need help updating hboot via RUU, S-Off, etc.
I'm using CM10 and I've been wanting to update my S4 to a KitKat rom for some time and now that some stable builds are starting to come out I decided it was a good time.
On my first try flashing a new rom I got an error message asking for a newer version of hboot (mine is 1.14.0002 and it wanted 2.15.0000), so I looked around and found out I needed a RUU to update that, but since finding one for my phone is pretty difficult I decided to S-Off it, because apparently you can use any RUU that way.
Obviously it's not working, that's why I'm posting this. I did the htcdev method to unlock the phone back when I installed CM10 and to get S-Off I followed the rumrunner method
. No problems whatsoever so far. They start appearing as soon as I try to update the 2.15.0000 RUU I downloaded from this other tutorial
(the HTC Europe one, since I live here).
Following all the steps in that page I read about needing to change the phone's SuperCID to make it compatible with the RUU. First I tried with the default SCID that my phone had (VODAP304) with no luck. Then after a bit of searching I tried changing it to HTC__001 which seemed to be the correct one for the european RUU, but the same thing happened: it gives an incompatibility error, the process stops, the phone bootloops and I have to do a TWRP restore (the back up is from this morning and I made it just before attempting this, so no data loss of any kind)
These are the numbers bootloader gives me, if they're of any help:

What exactly am I missing here to update the hboot?
