If the RUU is running it should do nothing bad to the phone.

You STAR!,

Right now seem to be back to stock, no dev options or the annoying warning not to sell it blar blar on boot. Lost all apps but who cares runs smoother

Problem now is the android version is still 4.0.4 but the sense version has changed to 4.1. Neither say restricted like before now to look into updating to the newest FW.

PS fastboot still says no device connected havent messed with it yet tho.

Time for bed and work tomo, Thanks sooooooo much for your help you now have experience of turning a dev SV into a stock.

Thanks for the help last night phone is running really smoothly now. Do you know of another EXE like the one you provided that will update the android version to the most current? Checking software updates as previously shows none available

Maybe there is another point in a dev phone, i don't know.
But there is also another way to get the latest Software. As you are S-off, you are already on a good stand.
Way would be:
- unlocking with
- flashing twrp recovery
- restoring a k2ul 4.2.2 backup with recovery
- flashing firmware files with bootloader
Main Devices:

- HTC One (M8)
S-Off | Insert Coin | ElementalX | TWRP

- HTC One SV
Index Thread: Search and find all what belongs to HTC One SV

Other devices: HTC Desire S | Asus TF 101 | HTC HD mini
