Default OTA Update Question

Hi! I have an unlocked AT&T (EVITA) HTC One X, itīs S-OFF, bootloader unlocked, rooted, superCID and it has the Sense 5 ROM from T-Mobile (I donīt know if the following changes something: I rooted the phone and removed with Titanium Backup T-Mobile's bloatware). I guess that as I flashed T-Mobile RUU following the forum guide, I must have stock recovery? I received today a 15MB OTA update, is it safe to install? Thanks!

No, you don't usually install any OTA updates on a modified device. Which RUU have you installed? What's the exact filename?

I am in the same situation, but I have CWM Recovery (modified).

How can I find the file name without downloading the update?

In any case, I used titanium backup to freezes the updater and the message from HTC no longer shows up.

You definitely can't install an OTA if you have a custom recovery installed. Don't you still have the RUU on your PC from when you ran it?

The two files I founded at my PC are the following: EVITA_UL_JB_50_S_TMO_DE_5.08.111.2 and the other file (I think its the radio I flashed that also was at the thread) is 2.15.0000_5.08.111.2-1.31a.32.45.16_2_10.141.32.34a

The second file is a firmware package, not just a radio. Is the first file a zip or an exe?

Do you have Windows set to hide the file extensions (.exe, .zip, etc.)? If so, you need to turn that off.

Tell us what kind of files those are.

My assumption is that you don't have stock recovery installed, and the rule of thumb is that you don't take OTA updates on a modified device. I don't see the point in this one anyway, the file size would indicate that it's only an update to the T-Mobile bloat apps
