[Q] Returning to Stock
I've to send my HTC One in for repairs (camera and light bleed), and I'm trying to go back to stock. Details of my phone:
HBoot - 1.55 (S-OFF)
OS/Firmware - 3.22.1540.1
CID - BS_001 (US 32GB Unlocked)
Before s-off, I restored to stock ROM using "Guru_Reset_M7_3.22.1540.1". This restored my stock recovery and my boot-loader was "LOCKED" NOT "Relocked". Now, trying to follow the "100% stock guide", I coudn't flash the "RUU Zip M7_UL_JB43_SENSE50_MR_BrightstarUS_WWE_3.22.1540.1-decrypted". I kept getting an error; something like 'target xxx bytes, couldn't load xxx bytes - unknown error'.
So I figured, I'l just remove the "Tampered" Banner (which I did) and then remove the red text and be done with it.
I researched and found that the red warning that we get after s-off will be done by flashing custoom Hboot, is that the right thing to do? Or should I try to do the RUU.zip thing? Should I just s-on and maybe the banner will go away?
Please help! Thanks.
