[Q] sim-unlock and stock ruu - HTC One
I have either a really easy question, or a series of more complicated (for me) ones. I have an HTC One that I want to use. It's currently running CM (installed through the one-click installation method at get.me). It's also currently locked to the Canadian carrier Telus. I want to use it on T-Mobile in the US. After some research, I just bought an unlock code. With a T-Mobile sim, upon booting it asks for an unlock PIN. I tried using the online purchased pin and it doesn't work. The seller of the pin said that it needs to be running a stock OS.
So I'm not sure what to do here. All I want is to enter the pin I bought and have the phone unlock. In its current state, the phone prompts for unlock pin, but doesn't work. So I figure I need to re-stock the phone, but I can't quite figure out how to do that. After several guides, I used a youtube video by called "How To Unroot and Flash your HTC One Stock!" by wwjoshdew. But it uses an RUU zip. I only found an RUU exe file that seems to match my phone's baseband and carrier. I followed the first few steps and loaded ADB and made the phone be "relocked" through the ADB command "fastboot oem lock". I then found an RUU that matches my baseband:
(From another xda thread that has a link for the RUU called "RUU M7 UL K44 SENSE55 MR TELUS WWE 4.19.661.8 R Radio 4T.24.3218.09 10.26.1718.01L Release 351500 Signed 2")
But when I try to run it (as admin), it just does some waity-mouse-becomes-clock stuff and then nothing. Computer is unchanged. Phone continues to sit in bootloader set in fastboot mode waiting for further instructions. I'm running Win 8.1. The only thing I can see if that the bootloader is 1.56 where many guides indicate it should be 1.55 or 1.54 or 1.44 or whatever. But the guide I'm using doesn't specify which. Is there something wrong with the RUU exe file? With my computer? With what?
ADB tells me this:
