Default [Q] Stuck on build 2.24.401.9. Want out with OTA / Other Stock Rom

Hi all,

I've been banging my head for quite some time on why I haven't received any of the OTA updates. I'm still on 4.2.2 and seeing my friends, with different variants of course, getting KitKat... pisses me off

As you can see I'm S-on and was wondering if I really need to go through the hassle of S-Off.
Can anyone here offer a simple walkthrough or a link to download a relevant OTA or Stock ROM that could start getting me OTA updates?

In the searches I've done I couldn't find an OTA I could manually flash since none of the OTAs base versions is 2.24.401.9. Signature fail every time.

adb and fastboot fully functional.
I didn't flash any recovery or other img yet. Fresh out of the box.

Here are my device details:

(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.54.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4A.17.3250.14
(bootloader) version-cpld: None
(bootloader) version-microp: None
(bootloader) version-main: 2.24.401.9
(bootloader) version-misc: PVT SHIP S-ON
(bootloader) serialno: HT37BW900798
(bootloader) imei: Mod edit removed IMEI
(bootloader) meid: 00000000000000
(bootloader) product: m7_u
(bootloader) platform: HBOOT-8064
(bootloader) modelid: PN0711000
(bootloader) cidnum: HTC__K18
(bootloader) battery-status: good
(bootloader) battery-voltage: 4309mV
(bootloader) partition-layout: Generic
(bootloader) security: on
(bootloader) build-mode: SHIP
(bootloader) boot-mode: FASTBOOT
(bootloader) commitno-bootloader: dirty-d959c75800
(bootloader) hbootpreupdate: 11
(bootloader) gencheckpt: 0
all: Done!

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ita

No idea why people want stock OTA...

Unlock bootloader, install TWRP, flash whatever rom you want. No need for s-off.
Simple as 1, 2, 3.

Moderator Information,

I have removed your IMEI number. This is personal information and you shouldn't post it on line.

I have exactly the same problem. HTC One is unrooted (or whatever HTC's expression for root is), but it doesnt want to update to last version 4.4.2, which is already available for my version 3.62.401.1.
If anyhone has an idea how to get OTA for 4.4.2, please let us know.

Why not just flash ARHD 5.1...4.19.401.8.
You will have the latest rom, identical to the stock Rom, but slicker, faster and better. When HTC decide to update that Rom, ARHD will be the first to offer it. No waiting for it to become available for you country/network or variant.

Well, thanks.
I wish to have stock OTA so I won't need to chase after stable releases, battery drain issues, or other wonderful scenarios I know you guys handle daily.
On that matter, installing another stock will put me on track for OTA updates? Are there other factors that could prevent it?

Appreciate the help.

That's fine - to each his own. My experience has been that you get great stability and even better battery (using custom kernels) with custom roms, but hey, that's just me

You'll just have to wait for your carrier to send the OTA - you can't force it.
