Default HTC USA Advanced Replacement Experience w/ Tampered Relocked Bootloader...

Guys,

Has anyone sent in their tampered / relocked device to HTC USA for an advanced replacement? I already got my replacement, but I cannot get firewater to work on the device I am sending back so it currently has a relocked and tampered bootloader. Do they even check? Or should I just flash the latest stock AT&T firmware I can find via recovery and just send it back? They pre-authorized my card for $500 already and would normally credit it back once they get the old device. I've found mixed messages here on if they care or not, but nothing specific to HTC USA.

Thanks,

Y2J

So just a stock zip if I can find one that isn't rooted and just change the main ver to match it?

You need to get the att 3.17 RUU and run it. Then s-on with rum runner or whatever. Problem solved.

Do you happen to know where I can grab a .zip of the latest AT&T software not rooted that I can flash in TWRP?

Thanks,
