First of all, I have spent 2 weeks searching for the exact RUU for the Stock ROM which came with my HTC One. I have tried installing several RUUs and Guru Resets given at htc1guru and have read allmost every post made by @crushalot. I have also read all the posts made by @smartanks and have asked them the same question I will be elaborating here now. I haven't got any help till date and so I was forced to start a new thread. I also researched this forum any similar threads and got now.

This might help all the HTC One India Users in future.

I bought my HTC One m7_U 7 months ago and installed Google Play Edition Rooted RUU on it provided by htc1guru
I changed my CID and MID to install the RUU on my phone and was happy with the Google play edition of the phone till the day my phone's Microphone stopped working and so did the Compass sensor. I also had the Purple Tint Issue with the Camera so I thought Of giving it back to the customer care for a replacement.

Now I started a search for my native Stock ROM that is for the HTC One WWE indian single sim edition(We in india have a dual sim edition also).
The basic step to revert back to stock was to revert back to the original CID which was HTC__038 and Model ID PN0711000.
When searching for the stock roms, I found three options:

1: Install RUU from htc1guru's collection
which matched the CID and ModelID of India's HTC One models.

2: Reset my phone using htc1guru's collection
which also matched the CID and Model ID.

3: Install Nandroid Backup for CID HTC__038 which is not available nowhere.

Trying First Option:
Since The RUU was available I first tried to Install the RUU and installed it successfully but the Software information In About Phone Showed that I am running 3.63.707.3 instead of 3.63.707.4. And the fastboot getvar mainver showed me 3.63.707.4.
Now the issue was OTA. I installed Stock recovery for the OTA in hopes of installing the recent OTA updating HTC One from 3.63.707.4-4.20.707.7. When I searched for the software updates available it showed me the available update as 4.20.707.6. I anyway started to download it and as soon as the download completed the phone gave me the message "we have determined that your phone may be running a modified version of its system software. For your protection we cannot update your phone.
Please revert your phone to the official HTC system software....."

"Failed"

Trying Second Option:
Now the GURU reset seemed to be the last option for me. But after installing it using ClockworkMod and Aroma Installer, The issue was exactly same like the one in RUU. The Software information in the about phone menu showed 3.63.707.3 and the fastboot getvar mainver showed me 3.63.707.4.

"Failed Again"



So finally I gave up and wrote this thread. Please help me if anyone has any idea about why these RUU's are showing a different firmware.

i found a solution .i downgraded my hboot and then i ran this RUU http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/ruu-zip-...decrypted-zip/ and now i'm receiving OTA updates like i'm supposed to , you may not have to downgrade hboot but just to be safe, i downgraded it to 1.44, after that i ran this RUU , rebooted and received OTAs , make sure you have indian CID HTC__038 and MID PN0711000, hope this helps
EDIT: please note that this RUU will downgrade your phone to 4.1.2 with sense 5, and software number 1.29.707.4, but after running this RUU you'll receive OTA's like normal, i just upgraded to 4.2.2 without a problem and tomorrow i'll update to 4.3 with Sense 5.5

You are from India Right?

So If I Install this RUU with software number 1.29.707.4, I will get the OTA for 4.2.2 right? Now what is the software number of yours after you installed the OTA?
And will this 4.2.2 update your phone into 4.3 with Software Number 3.63.707.4?

Okay, So I have tried your suggested method earlier but got no success may be because I installed a different recovery back then.

I did a fresh Installation of the 1.29.707.4 RUU and got an OTA for the 4.2.2. I immediately downloaded the OTA and installed it successfully after flashing the stock recovery I pulled from the RUU Zip of 1.29.707.4. That went great.

After that, I checked for OTA but there were none available for the phone.
So I downloaded the OTA Zip file from htc1guru's website for updating from 2.24.707.3 to 3.63.707.4. The zip file size was 700MB approx.
I transferred the downloaded OTA zip file from my computer to the phone storage and then rebooted the phone into recovery.
went to "apply from phone storage and chose '0' and selected the zip I transferred. Worked like a charm.
My Phone was then running 43.63.707.4 finally with Android 4.3.
Checked for the OTA and found the latest update that is 4.4.2 with 4.20.707.7.

Cant thank you enough for pointing me into this direction.
