Hi. I seek for guide on how to backup my HTC One stock firmware.zip and stock recovery.img


I have two HTC One phone:-

Phone A - unroot, KitKat stock ROM
- S-ON
- Locked
- Firmware: 4.20.707.6
- Hboot 1.56
- CID: HTC__044
- MID: PN0710000

Phone B - rooted, KitKat stock ROM
- S-Off
- Unlocked
- Firmware: ***
- Hboot 1.56
- CID: HTC__044
- MID: PN0710000

***Phone B has messed up firmware. Software firmware showing version 4.20.707.6 while running "getvar all" showing firmware 2.24.707.1.


I'm unable to find the KitKat stock firmware and stock recovery for this phone model.

I'm planning to return Phone B to unroot stock ROM state.


My questions:-

1) How to backup firmware.zip from Phone A to flash it into Phone B?

2) How to backup recovery.img from Phone A to flash it into Phone B?

3) Is stock recovery.img universal? Can i just get stock recovery.img for KitKat from any CID/MID version and flash it to Phone B to return it to stock ROM state?


Appreciate if someone could answer this. TQ.

I think a guru reset will work for your phone 2.

Iwould find the newest one available for your cid and model id, since that phone is s-off you can downgrade firmware. Leave it s-off

mb_guy, appreciate your response.


Yes, Guru Reset M7 2.24.707.1 will do but i need to manual update to 3.63.707.3 then manual update to 4.20.707.6.

I just wonder how someone shared the stock firmware.zip and stock recovery.img online and what method they used to backup those files.


Now i have a new question:-

I've download OTA_4.20.707.6-3.63.707.3.zip files and found there's firmware.zip (4.20.707.6) inside.
Also there's recovery.img inside firmware.zip.

Can I used this firmware.zip and recovery.img to flash to Phone B to revert to stock ROM, Firmware & Recovery?

I think the firmware and recovery may flash, but you will have no ROM
