Hello guys,

I bought a shiny new M8 and wanted to sell my M7 now. Problem: I can't for the heck of it figure out how to revert back to stock. I was on ARHD all the time.

First of all, my getvar all. I was S-OFF.

hbootpreupdate: 11
gencheckpt: 0
all: Done!
finished. total time: 0.064s

I already relocked the bootloader as I understood that it needs to be relocked to install an official RUU. So far so good.

I downloaded the latest RUU (RUU_M7_UL_K44_SENSE55_MR_HTC_Europe_4.19.401.9_R_ R adio_4A.23.3263.28_10.38r.1157.04L_release_353069_ signed_2-1.exe) and it just gets stuck at Checking Header and 5%.

I googled a bit and found this thread here where it is suggested to use m7_ul_jb_50_htc_europe_1-28-401-7_radio_4a-13-3231-27_10-31-1131-05_release_310878_signed and then OTA all the way up. Well, this RUU won't even begin the update process as it says that this RUU is incompatible, right before the flash should start.

I even tried extracting the Rom.zip out the latest RUU and flashing it manually, this is what I get:

Can anyone point me in the right direction here? I don't really know what else to try.

you already have a thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2796167 for the same issue. why a 2nd one?

btw you don't need to relock bootloader to flash ruu when the phone is s-off.

Would it work to flash a nandroid backup of an original german unbranded phone via CWM?
