I have been using the Android Revolution HD ROM for a bit but I would like to go back to the stock HTC Sense ROMs as the Sense 6 update is about to come out in the UK.

I'm kinda new to this and I believe I need to run an RUU to be able to receive OTA updates.

Here is the output from fastboot getvar all:

C:\fastboot>fastboot getvar all
(bootloader) version: 0.5
(bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.56.0000
(bootloader) version-baseband: 4A.25.3263.21

(bootloader) version-main: 4.19.401.11

(bootloader) hbootpreupdate: 11
(bootloader) gencheckpt: 0
all: Done!
finished. total time: 0.044s

Also apparently if you installed a custom recovery, it breaks OTA updates, is this true?

I used ruu_m7_ul_k44_sense55_mr_htc_europe_4-19-401-9_r_radio_4a-23-3263-28_10-38r-1157-04l_release_353069_signed_2-1 (can't post link) one but it didn't work, I later found out the bootloader had to be locked, so I did that and it worked .

Thanks anyway,
Keir

Hmm, I could've sworn I had CWM installed when I got the KK 4.3 update. Thanks anyway, it's working now

The only problem is that by this method of restoring to stock firmware you lost root , but don't fret , your bootloader will be always unlocked if you mess it up.

It's up to you if you root , however i heard that by rooting the device you could possibly lose the ability to install OTAs , idk maybe you could research more about this not sure... Anyways if you root the phone , install xposed framework and GravityBox [KK] Preety awesome if you want to have custom things on your phone.

Okay, thanks. I used xposed on the previous rom, it's pretty nice.
