Hi, I require assistance. bought this used unit of M7 (normal edition) a few months back. Totally new to the Android scene before then.
It came with 4.4.2 and Sense 5.5, I had assumed it was untampered with and is fully stock.
Software version is 4.20.707.6, Asia WWE. CL308312 release keys (whatever that means)
So when I had tried to update it via OTA to HTC Sense 6 (file size 666.06MB, what the.. Satan?)
I'd go through it for the first 30% and then it'd be in a red triangle with exclamation mark, which then made me press the volume and power button and got this:
showing that soundhound_freemium is missing, uhh...
It would then boot back normally and go back to the normal Sense 5.5. But I do want the Sense 6 badly and get this issue solved.
I was pretty dumbfounded with this issue as I am new to Android and everyone else is receiving their updates smoothly.
Now I choose not to proceed without the advice of XDA forumers, I wish to ask of what is the next step for me? I came across with the explanation that I'd need to do an RUU to get back to stock? Feeling pretty much dumber from that point on, there are so many RUU files around that I do not know which one I should be using? Any help on this is appreciated.
Steps done so far:
Factory reset from settings
Factory reset from recovery mode
Installing soundhound from Play Store (yea.. no difference)
Continuously attempting it at least 11 to 13 times, still the same thing over again.
BTW: I seem to be getting the app called WeChat every time I reset my phone, I wonder why... I know it's a messaging app but didn't know it'd come with the phone pre-loaded.. uh..
oh and oh, apart from OTA, any other way for me to install it from PC or something? I remember being able to update via iTunes instead of OTA for a newer version of iOS, although of course that was iOS, just wondering if it were possible for the Android as well. Hmm.. oh well
I would really appreciate all the help I can get, really want the Sense 6 UI to test, thank you very much!
Install odexed zip in twrp will fix 100%
EDIT: added bootloader image
