Hi folks, have TWRP installed, rooted, wanted to get the OTA, but can't b/c of twrp being installed.

I have the OTA d/led from at&t. Can I load the firmware.zip from that with
fastboot oem rebootRUU
and then
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip ?

( both of which are from godfirst' post here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2419699 )

and is that the 'stock recovery"?
Or is that JUST the new firmware? (as in the BIOS for the phone, to make a pc analogy.)

More info, from bootloader screen:
tampered
unlocked
m7_UL pvt ship s-on rh
hboot-1.44.0000
radio-4a.14.3250.13
opendsp-v26.120.274.0202
emmc-boot

You can't flash the firmware with unlocked bootloader (edit: unless you have s-off.)

Open the firmware.zip with 7-zip, etc. and extract recovery.img, then 'fastboot flash recovery recovery.img'. (No need to rebootRUU.)

Gets to 25% and stops. Not sure if it's hung or still going, but I've waited 18 minutes so far.

I can power it off, then boot it again, and it hangs with red triangle exclamation.

One more power off/on and I'm back in the OS with a fail message.

Are there logs placed anywhere that I can look at?

Anyone get this and get past it?

Thx in advance for any thoughts.
