Default OTA failing (root)

Hi All,

I have an M8 which is on stock carrier firmware but rooted and twrp installed.

Got a notification of an OTA update.

I installed the stock bootloader and re-locked it but the firmware update still 'red tirangles' about halfway through.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance all.

I'm on an Australian Telstra brand phone with FW 1.12.841.17 and the OTA is for 1.54.841.8

You need to have the stock recovery. I was able to get my OTA being rooted and unlocked, I had to have the stock recovery for it to work.

Oh dear. I meant I have the stock recovery. Sorry. Just came off night shift and got the 2 mixed up.
So yeah, reinstalled stock recovery and no good. Firmware update progress bar gets about halfway before going to the red triangle.

I would try extracting the firmware.zip from the ota zip and flashing the firmware.zip entirely.

to flash the firmware.zip

boot to fastboot
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
wait until done
again
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
fastboot reboot
then try flashing the ota again.
