SD Card Wiped after RUU?

So I needed to Unlock my HTC One X, and for that I needed to RUU, which I did without incident. But now, all my SD Card contents are gone? I thought I did enough research and everything I read said RUU doesn't mess with the SD card.

Turns out, it does, or am I missing something?


Appreciate the replies in advance. I'm very very buggered. I did a full Nandroid and everything, which is of course, gone.

An RUU doesn't usually wipe the sd card, but it has on rare occasions done so. More information required though, what are your bootloader details (before and after the RUU)? Which RUU did you run? What made you think you needed to RUU in order to unlock the bootloader?

I used
http://dl3.htc.com/application/HTC_O...5.18.502.1.exe
for the RUU.

I needed to be on a Stock Rom according to posts on XDA that I read in order to Unlock my phone for use with T-Mobile, switching over from AT&T.
I'm on 5.18 now, was on 3.14 if I remember correctly. Whatever I needed to be on to use CleanRom, I was on.

Ahh ok, you're talking about SIM unlocking. You didn't actually need to run an RUU, just flashing a Sense ROM would have been fine. There is no such firmware as 3.14, and it depends on which build of Cleanrom you were on. Either way, it looks as though you got unlucky because I've seen multiple people run the 5.18 RUU without any issues (apart from sometimes needing to run it twice to get it to work fully).

Out of interest, do you have SuperCID? Did you relock the bootloader prior to running the RUU? Do you have s-off?

I was on a Sense ROM and it never asked me to insert my unlock code when I used a different sim. I was S-OFF before I ran RUU. Of course now I had to re-root the phone and that's where I've stopped. I may throw Viper on it, but I'm just deflated from losing all of my stuff.

Interesting. For future reference, because you were s-off you didn't need to relock your bootloader or anything to run the RUU, you could have just run it. Then afterwards you just flash TWRP recovery again and away you go.
