how to put nand backup in phone when there is no ROM installed.

Now, let's talk about getting back to stock. There are 2 ways to do this.

1. Flash the stock RUU (If available) (Recommended)
2. Restore your Nandroid (backup that I told you to make earlier)

1. I'll talk about flashing the stock RUU first.

Open up my toolkit and press "Factory RUU" from the links sections. I usually have the most updated RUUs that Football releases on my Dev-Host account. Download the correct RUU for your phone.

Now, back up all your data (pictures, contacts, etc) since this will put your phone back to complete stock.

Connect the USB cable to your phone. Press Boot into Bootloader.

It should now say FASTBOOT USB on your screen.

Press Relock bootloader. It may give you a security warning error or it may say failed. Who cares, ignore it. It's normal.

Your phone will boot up normally.

When the phone is fully loaded. Unplug and replug the USB cable back in the phone. Now,run the RUU you downloaded and follow the instructions.

Your phone will be back to stock.

2. Now, we will talk about restoring your nandroid backup.

Connect your phone to the computer. Open up the folder to view the files on your phone.

From your computer, Go to TWRP -> BACKUPS -> (Your hardware Serial Number) -> (Folder you wish to restore to) -> and copy boot.emmc.win to your computer. Rename boot..emmc.win to boot.img

Open my toolkit and press boot into recovery.

Click Wipe. Wipe Cache, Dalvik, Factory Reset and System. NOTHING ELSE! If you click anything else, IT WILL WIPE YOUR SD CARD AND YOU WILL HAVE MORE ISSUES ON YOUR HEAD!

Press back and press Restore. Choose the backup to restore to.

After it finishes, press the back button. Press Reboot and select bootloader.

Open my toolkit and press Flash a Kernel. Locate the boot.img and it will flash it.

You are now back to your stock Nandroid.

I have NAND Backup of Stock ROM but after installing the TWRP in my HOX+ I wiped all the things from Advance Format option.
So I could not put my NAND Backup in my Internal Storage. I tried miniadb_inc tool but it shows "no device found" everytime while fastboot tool can recognize my device. All in One HOX+ kit sometimes recognizes and sometimes not. So please tell me how to restore this NAND Backup in my mobile.

I assume you have flashed AT&T ROM in your international phone.

You need to first install correct recovery. From the tool kit, first choose TWRP International.

Once you install the correct recovery, rest are as per the outlined procedure. Since you have flashed incorrect ROM, you would be required to do wipe.

The AIO toolkit is great, all you need to do is replace a newer version of adb.exe and fastboot.exe. It works perfectly for me.

confusing instructions at the end

I did. But by doing so my HTS One M8 turned off when I pushed the SuperSu.zip file and went to a black screen with only an attantion sign and reacted to nothing anymore.
I thought I killed it. Luckily after about 5 minutes it reacted again to the power button and started normaly.
I found another guide with video wich I followed then and found out what the correct procedure with your tool is.
I want to spare this creepy moment for other One M8 users so here is the link: http : // www . idigitaltimes . com / htc-one-m8-android-44-kitkat-how-root-international-att-t-mobile-and-sprint-variants-and-install

Now, click Submit Token ID. Your web browser should now open a new tab. Scroll down and in the empty box, paste your Token ID. Press submit. HTCDev now emailed you your unlock token.

There was no pop up. The next CMD window which gives you the phone ID opens only when you close the first one. You didn't write that I need to close the first window so I assumed theres nothing happening anymore. I simply followed the instructions from the htcDev-site which told me the command and what to do.
After that I closed the command window and noticed that your tool is now doing what I just did.
When you say that one should follow step by step you should also write when one needs to close the CMD window. I don't simply assume that by closing one window the next step starts automatically.

So far so good, nothing serious happend, I got to this point without any big troubles. But the next step was quite a struggle. And when I had nothing on my screen except a red attention sign I really though I can send in my phone.

Under commands, press Boot into Bootloader once again.
Now, it is time to flash a recovery.

My phone started up, I went through the wizard, all fine.
Next step: Perm Root. OK. But a pop up appears and sais "YOU MUST HAVE CUSTOM FLASH FIRST"
It's contrary to what you write in your guide. Here the flash of the recovery comes after the perm root. So I follow your instructions and my phone went to the above said state.
After about 5 minutes I could start it again. Then I clicked again Perm Root>Run, i read the pop up carefully and decided to abort so I clicked the X instead of OK. But by clicking X the command is not aborted, it has the same effect as clicking OK.
My suggestion: implement a function to abort a command when X is clicked instead of OK.

So then I followed the video instruction where I found I need to choose the TWRP and then click "Flash Recovery".
For someone who doesn't crack a phone regularly like me this is not very clear and intuitive.
I don't know what a recovery is in this purpose and in which step it is needed.
Next after flashing the recovery I clicked Perm Root>Run. It worked and automatically booted my phone to bootloader.
There is no necessity to click the command "Boot into Bootloader" as you wrote.
Maybe in a old version of your tool it was necessary, but now you did everything sequential and selftriggering. But this was just a little confusing and no big deal.

Then you write something about different TWRP (ATT/Telus and International). Is this still up to date?
In the tool version that I downloaded today were 5 different recoveries: TWRP normal and sprint, ClockWorkMod normal and spring, and "Your own recovery"

After it flashes, remove the USB cable and have HBOOT selected in bootloader. Press the power button and it will reload to another screen. Press the Volume Down button until you get to Recovery. Press the power button to select it.

True! It's always better to have a backup.
But at this step I couldn't choose to do a backup. First in the TWRP recovery I could choose to do a backup.
I'm not sure if you're talking about this or if something changed in the meantime.

Please, don't get me wrong. I'm realy grateful for your work, your tool and your instructions.
I'm always glad to find something like this where someone made the effort for a simple solution for everyone and even writes a guide.
I just want to give a feedback about what could lead, and in my case it did lead, to problems during the process.
Maybe if you have time and the motivation you want to change the instruction. Or if someone contacts you with the same problems you just refer to this post of me or the video guide.

Thanks again for your time and your effort.
