I'm having the same problem. The RUU will not run for me no matter what I do, I have installed and uninstall HTC sync manager, installed every 2005/2008/2010/2012 Visual C++ redistributable I can find and yet it the thing just always crashes as soon as I accept the license agreement. POOF! Just gone. I hate Windows so much. It's Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit if that matters.

I can't seem to get the stock backup to work either. I applied it via recovery but every time I reboot the System UI crashes as does HTC dot view. There is no notification bar at the top nor any back/home/recent apps buttons on the bottom.

I think the only solution here *IS* the RUU, right? But the thing just refuses to run and this is the only Windows system I have...so any ideas?

Did you run it as Administrator? Right click and run as admin.

Yep and it still didn't work. I even tried launching CMD as administrator and then running it from there, but it didn't give me any extra insight. Oh well. Ultimately, I just went into the stock recovery and ran a data wipe/factory reset and the next time it booted up, it just worked! No RUU required. Now I can avoid booting into Windows for many more months and happily run Ubuntu.

I am rooted, s off, using twrp on lollipop. I wanted to return to stock because I used Jump and got an m9 and need to send the m8 back.

I ran the T Mobile RUU and it failed, I am now stuck on the HTC blackscreen with exclamation points in all 4 corners and can't get into recovery or boot past this screen. How can I recover from this mess? I've never had an RUU fail, it said that it was the wrong firmware for my device but it's the correct RUU. I was stock rooted before the RUU failed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Does anybody have the RUU zip file you can flash with fastboot commands? I've never had good luck with the automated Windows executables.

EDIT: Just found this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4#post52806314

Unfortunately it 404's on the expanded firmware, which is the one I need. Anybody have an alternative link or mirror?

If I'm converted to GPE (s-off, rooted rom), relocking the bootloader, set CID & MID to original values and flash the latest T-Mobile RUU is all that is needed to go back to stock, right?

By stock I mean stock firmware, OTA capable (unless I remove bloatware). Not S-ON (I don't care about S-ON actually).
