[Q] Before messing with US unlocked to get 4.2.2 OTA while 4.3 arrives
First of all, hello to you all!
I have a US Unlocked with CID BS__0001 (same as Developer Edition) with everything stock, not even rooted. I already know that 4.3 is coming next month if HTC fulfills its promise but I want 4.2.2 to get rid of the black bar and get the AE/AF camera improvements.
After reading tons, and I means of threads and posts, I have a general understanding on how to proceed and what to do to get 4.2.2 OTA but I want confirmation from you guys on a few topics. I will enumerate the steps and ask a question(s) on each one.
1.- I need to unlock the bootloader via HTCDev or Revone. Then S-OFF with Revone (read about Moonshine but it seems that most folks are using the former). Going S-OFF will impact battery life? I remember reading about an error reporting service or something like it that will always run after going S-OFF. Is this true? Does it impact battery/performance in any way?
2.- After S-OFF, I will need to change my CID to SuperCID, install a stock WWE RUU and change the CID to one that already got 4.2.2 update, like HTC__001. Then the OTA updates will show up. Flashing the stock RUU posted on this guide
won't affect any of the radios of my phone in any way, right? I don't want to risk getting poor reception/speeds or Wi-Fi range.
3.- After having all the OTA updates installed and running 4.2.2, I want to be able to receive the 4.3 OTA when it becomes available. Should I just change back my CID to BS__0001 and the update will show up? I also need to relock the bootloader, right? Are these the only two things to do?
I've also read that S-OFF is not possible at the moment after updating to 4.2.2. I don't want/need it as long as the 4.3 OTA can be installed normally as I'm more than happy with the One stock stuff. What do you guys recommend? Do I keep S-OFF or S-OFF?
I appreciate you taking the time to read this and answer my questions. If you have any other input, comments, suggestions or advice before I start messing with my phone, I'll be more than grateful.
