Exclamation [Q] Another soft brick problem

I will start from the beginning. I messed up and wiped my htc one completely. (with no backup done prior)

SO after reading numerous threads/how to I still can not get anything to work.

I have been using toolkit v3.1 but the thing is my computer does not reconize my phone...well it will in fastboot mode but not in bootloader or twrp recovery so I cannot go into recovery to just install a new ROM.

So i have been trying to get it back to stock but I am getting the same error message.

So this is my info.

RELOCKED
M7-UL PVT SHIP S-OFF RH
CID-TELUS001
HBOOT-1.44.0000
RADIO-4A.14.3250.13
openDSP-v26.120.274.0202
eMMC-boot

this is the RUU which I thought might work ,guru_reset_m7_3-22-661-1-zip, from htc1guru but then i get this

< waiting for device >
sending 'zip' (1104738 KB)...
OKAY [ 45.937s]
writing 'zip'...
(bootloader) zip header checking...
(bootloader) zip info parsing...
FAILED (remote: 24 parsing android-info fail)
finished. total time: 61.857s

C:\Users\Home\Desktop\One_All-In-One_Kit_v\data>

only thing i havent tried is using a OTG USB cable, which I dont own, but I am going to get one tomorrow if I can find one in town.

Maybe I am missing something. You mentioned about flashing a RUU not running it off of a zip? How do I do that? I am trying to use the flash factory RUU zip from the toolkit program and thats when I get the error above. Maybe I am not using the right RUU?


should add I tried using the fastboot manually and got this

c:\fastboot>fastboot oem rebootRUU

So I tired finding a RUU but cant seem to find a exact one.

So where do I go from here?

The guru reset file you downloaded appears to be the right one, the problem is, you flashing it the wrong way.

You must have TWRP recovery on your phone, the preferred and most reliable version is 2.6.3.3, then you must put that guru reset file on your internal storage and flash it from within TWRP recovery like you would do with a custom rom, select install in TWRP and then select the guru reset file, swipe to install and follow the instructions.

Got it working. found the thread where you basically change the CID to something else, then add a RUU for that CID then switch it back. Seems to be working now.
