Flashing firmware.zip is a pain because you have to relock your bootloader, and then when you unlock it again (to reflash custom recovery) your entire phone is wiped, so you need to backup the whole 64GB before starting the process and restore it afterwards.

However, there is no hboot in the 2.18.401.3 firmware.zip so for this OTA in particular you just need to extract the boot.img from firmware.zip and flash it with
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
which doesn't require a wipe.

Thanks for the explanation.

But i'm still a lit bit confused. My HOX+ is rooted with latest stock ROM. Can i use the OTA classic process or do i have to use TWRP ?

Have you unlocked your bootloader?* If so I don't think that the standard OTA process will work, although I haven't personally tried it.

*I expect you have if you are rooted because I'm not aware of a way of rooting a S-ON HOX+ without unlocking the bootloader

Just to be clear, this file is only for the international HOX+ and attempting to install it on the AT&T variety would cause all hell to break lose, correct?
Also, if one were to install this on a custom, rooted rom the process would be to flash the boot.img then install the zip from twrp/cwm?
I just want to be certain I'm understanding everything. Thanks!

Boot in TWRP : Install zip file.
Boot in fastboot : Flash boot.img.
Reboot in system => Still root (TWRP fix it before reboot), and updated.

Just perfect. (and lost apk are back (like light).

Thanks a lot

I think the heartbleed fix in really the only thing they changed. The 8 MP camera bug is still present. Shame on you HTC!

I don't think there are any changes in this update except the heartbleed security fix.
