Question [Q] Help to restore my waranty

Hi everyone,
I recently bought a htc one M8 to a french company which import them from Poland.
I unlocked the bootloader of my phone with HTCDEV, I flash twrp, and I rooted the phone.
Today, I have a problem with the duo camera, when i run the camera, a pop up comes to say that the duo camera is covered and I need to pull my finger somewhere else but i have this from a week and nothing is in front of the camera.
So the reseller said that I need to make work the waranty of the phone to solve the problem.
Of course, i can't use the waranty because my Hboot is unlocked.



I read this Thread :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708571
To relock the bootloader. I read that I t would work for me.(I'm s-on for the moment but I think I will be able to find a tuto to s-off )

I just fine this thread to remove tampered flag :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708565
I didn't read all commentarys but it seems to works.

But i'm wondering what else should I do to restore waranty, I read that flash the ruu will be ok but I think my phone don't have the international rom because there isn't super eco battery mode and when I ask on an other forum someone answer me that was because I got a Polish phone.

Could somewone guide me? Is my request possible? In what order apply tutos? Where download polish RUU?

Sorry if the english is bad..

Thx,

Allan

[GUIDE] Return your M8 to 100% Stock Follow the instructions in that thread, it'll be the same for most devices just use the correct software applicable to your phone. You need to be S-OFF to achieve the removal of tampered banner and other goodies.

So first thing you'll need to do is get S-OFF, you could either try the old Firewater S-OFF method found here: Firewater S-OFF Instructions it worked on most devices but the newest patches released by HTC blocked it. If it doesn't work for you you can try [Android][HTC S-OFF] SunShine for modern HTC devices . It should make you S-OFF fore sure however it costs $25 through an in app payment method. It's "per" device, so if you pay $25 to S-OFF and they give you a new phone you'll have to pay another $25 to S-OFF the new one... Worth considering though if firewater doesn't work...

After you get S-OFF just follow the general instructions in the Guide provided above and you should be set to go

What is your software version number, I don't see it on the pic? Are you still on stock ROM, if so check in settings >>> about >>> software information.

I'm not familiar with the various different main-versions that comes from Poland. If we can get the version you're on it'll make things a bit easier. Having said that here is the thread with a lot of nandroid backups that you can look into as well COLLECTION of Stock backup's

Yeah that's for T-Mobile Poland...

Well if you're still on Stock ROM then you only need S-OFF to remove the tampered banner, show bootloader as locked and you'll also need a stock recovery, which might be a bit more difficult to get. I've seen a few people on here asking for it and not sure if they found it yet or not I also don't think there's an RUU available for it...

There is a TWRP Stock Nandroid in this guy's post, don't know if it includes the stock recovery though.

CID T-MOB009 - 1.57.118.2 TWRP ( hboot 3.16)
Direct link: Mega Uploads link for 1.57.118.2 TWRP

Well,
My phone is S-off, I don't really thing about consequences because it cost me 25$ and I start looking for T-Mobile Poland stock recovery AFTER.
And it's hard to find... Lots of result for the m7.This post appeared often ans by curiosity, I type " m8 T-Mobile Poland", this post appeared in fisr page... I will continue but if someone have it, i would be great to tell me where I can get it !

Edit : Do you think T-Mobile from other country could work? Germany? Thxs!
Edit 2 : I found this Thread on polish forum : http://forum.android.com.pl/f1288/ko...uu-ota-416860/
On the first post, in the signature, we can read : Backup : CID T-MOB009 - 1.57.118.2 TWRP (HBOOT 3.16)
I'm not sure to understand everything with google trad but do you think it's a full backup with the recovery and i can use it ?

That's the exact same link I shared with you already. I think it is the full backup(Not sure about Recovery though) as I tried to download it on my phone and it's a big file. You can just download it to PC though and open the .zip file and make sure everything is there, boot.img system.img radio.img etc If it's just a TWRP on its own I don't think there will be a recovery.img, hopefully there is though. I didn't download it fully myself, on data plan and not going to spend it downloading a 1gb+ file that isn't even applicable to me

As for the T-Mobile from another country. You can convert to any device once you're S-OFF(Apart from the obvious CDMA vs GSM so Verizon/Sprint won't work I think) so you could flash T-Mobile Germany(will have to change CID/MID I think MID might be the same though) yes, BUT, you probably won't get OTA updates then and will probably have to download the OTA updates as they are released and collected(at xda for example) and then flash it manually.

Oh, I'm sorry... Well donwloaded it and I think this is not good, in the ?zion there is :
boot.emmc.win
boot.emmc.win.md5
cache.ext4.win
cache.ext4.win.md5
data.etx4.win
data.etx4.win.md5
recovery.log
system.ext4.win000
system.ext4.win000.md5
system.ext4.win001
system.ext4.win001.md5

This is just a TWRP, right?

About flahs T-mobile Germany RUU, would it permit me to make the waranty works?

Edit : If I found someone with the same software number than me, I would be able to do the backup, right? I find this :

How do i backup the stock HTC recovery ?

Boot the custom recovery, preferably with Philz touch recovery as it will back up the stock recovery for sure, you need the following command to boot it and not flash it over the stock recovery :

fastboot boot recovery_filename.img

Then make a full nandroid backup, the stock recovery is located inside the backup folder
But I don't understand, they said boot the custom recovery with an other recovery? oO Are you able to explain it to me ?

Yes that's a TWRP backup, like suspected though, no recovery.img file to go back to stock recovery.

German RUU - You could convert device to German T-Mobile sure, will it pass warranty? If you're very lucky and they don't look deeper into this then sure, I suppose it could pass. Though somehow I doubt that'll happen

Same software number...? Is this physical access to a phone that has the same software as yours or did you get it online somewhere? I don't understand your edit part there... But regardless, you can make a backup of his device yes or ask him to do it or if he already made a backup with CWM/Philz Touch then it'll help a lot too as it'll have the recovery.img. I won't say much more about this though..need more clarity from your side about that...

They don't boot a recovery with another recovery, they boot the custom recovery from fastboot in order to make a backup of the system + stock recovery. You should have done this before you flashed a custom recovery as well, preferably with CWM/Philz Touch Recovery. If you're going to use TWRP then you'll first have to manually "dump" the recovery as a backup, if you use Philz, Philz could at least have made a backup of the stock recovery.

But yeah, you can boot into a custom recovery. Connect the phone to the device, reboot into bootloader, open command prompt change directory to where adb.exe is. Type in fastboot boot name_of_custom_recovery.img then you can make a backup of system including recovery(IF you booted Philz/CWM) .

It's a bit too late for you now though, you already flashed a custom recovery which over wrote the stock you had.
