Default RUU failing

Good evening,

I have run into some issues. I downloaded ViperRom, and after installing it I noticed that the soft keys weren't working. I rebooted and the phone into recovery to restore a backup I made a few minutes prior. Every time I try to restore the backup, it fails. I also can't reflash viper. It always fails installing. I then downloaded the RUU file for the One, and when I try to flash the RUU, it says this:

load_file: could not allocate 1610682630 byte
error: cannot load '0P6BIMG.ZIP

Any idea what's going on and why I can't restore my backup?

load_file is a recovery routine. To flash an RUU you need to be in RUU mode and use fastboot:

fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip 0P6BIMG.ZIP

I ran both of those commands and it is still failing.

Use option 2 as I have detailed in that thread. You copy the zip as is to your SD card (formatted to fat32) and reboot to bootloader..

Bootloader runs it for you...
