Default WIND, Canada M8, lost stock recovery, OTA update

EDIT: wrong section, sorry, please move to Help section or delete

So a mandatory OTA update notification popped up on my phone today, but I can't flash it without the stock recovery, and I can't find the right stock recovery for my phone anywhere.
It keeps bugging me every 4 hours to install it.
Is there anything I can do to get the update (maybe without stock recovery) or am I just boned?

some info:
version-main: 1.12.1500.18
cid: GLOBA001
recovery: philz_touch_6.26.6
rooted, S-OFF, HTCDev bootloader unlocked

COLLECTION of Stock backup's by Mr Hofs

Regards, Toni
I've already looked at that collection of stock ROMs, but none of them matched my phone's version-main of 1.12.1500.18. I did try 1.12.1540.17 but no luck.

Fortunately, I think I know what the problem is; the update (with the mismatched 1.12.1540.17 recovery) crashes with the message:
"/system/app/PartnerBookmarksProvider.apk" has unexpected contents.
so I looked up that APK and it doesn't even exist, probably because unlocking my bootloader got rid of it (along with a bunch of others, including the Calculator and Flashlight apps). So if I could find the apps that were removed while unlocking the phone's bootloader, I think it'll work.
I also tried removing the line that checks for PartnerBookmarksProvider.apk from the updater-script, but that changed the hash of the update zip and any attempt to install was aborted almost immediately.

Did you try another Recovery, for example 1.12.401.17?

Woud this help?
