HOW TO USE A RUU
  1. Download the RUU (duh)
  2. Put your One X in fastboot mode and connect to pc via USB.
  3. Lock the bootloader by typing the following command to fastboot command prompt:
    Code:
    fastboot oem lock
  4. Right click on the RUU and select run as adminstrator.
  5. Go through the steps the RUU gives you.

Re: HTCruu.com brought down.
RUU on request ..... PM me :thumbup:

And please add the CID & MAIN version number !

Fastboot oem readcid
Fastboot getvar version-main

READ THIS CAREFULLY !

First option is to check this thread

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1975140 -------- Please thank Matt95 for an amazing thread --------

If your MAIN VERSION is there (CID does not have to match, only the exact main version) download it and place the nandroid backup in the right folder of the sdcard

Clockworkmod backup :

Clockworkmod\backup\*date and time folder*\*backup files from the nandroid*

Flash the boot.img from that nandroid (boot.img is located in the nandroid folder)

Enter recovery and do a FULL wipe and restore the nandroid backup.

Then flash back the STOCK recovery matching your MAIN VERSION.

You are ready to update official !

Stock recovery 1.29

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i98j4bhffk...ery%201.29.img

Stock recovery 2.17

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wbav46spkb...ery%202.17.img

Stock recovery 3.14

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ms7vd18vb9...ery%203.14.img



EXAMPLE :

You updated the hboot with a firmware flash to 1.39 but you have no nandroid, your main version is 3.14.206.** now you can download the 2.17.206.** nandroid backup and restore that the way i described.

you can update now to the official 3.14 JB software, but the hboot stays at 1.39. so the update only changes the software back to the highest available stock version !

And one more advantage is that the bootloader does NOT have to be LOCKED and UNLOCKED afterwards

Greetings Mr Hofs.

The end of HTC most likely the way they're carrying on.

I'll never buy another of their phones again, what with this secure boot nonsense and walled garden platform they're intent on.

This is simply a stupid strategy by htc.The site wasn't costing them any money.It was good for developers and people who wanted to go back to stock.Htc is turning into another apple.

I guess you mean we should download any available file from htc before they ban them, don't you? Good idea

Might sound a bit off key but I ain't taking no chances.
