Assuming this works I hope to get the OTA and update properly then reroot the phone. Least I took the time to do S Off.

I should add. I never went through with the deleting of preinstalled crap. I just disabled it. I would hope that wouldn't mess it up. I can't say I ever went through deleting anything from system. I thought about it, but figured the phone has 32GB of space on it and I certainly wasn't hurting for storage.

Edit: Of course, I hadn't realized who you were until I clicked on your baseband link under your HTC One M8 phone. I've seen your stuff before. If all else fails. Would I be able to do the latest OTA update using your files? Are they the stock Sense 6 software? That's the only reason why I want the OTA is to remain up to day with the stock stuff. If these OTA's keep failing I am more than willing to do it manually if I can get them from somewhere. I just don't want custom stuff.
I have a clean stock rooted you can flash here. You should even be able to take future OTAs with no issue (provided you install stock recovery first, of course).

EDIT: You will need to update your firmware before updating to the new base, though. There's a link to it in my ROM thread OP.

Ok, looks like my nuclear option of the RUU worked and I am now updated. Going to make a backup and reinstall the TWRP bootload and super user.

I want to thank you guys for this was able to finally get s off with this thread. Sunshine wouldn't work for me until I put a stock recovery on here. I had lost my original when my sd card went dead. Thanks a bunch!
