I know OTA stands for "Over The Air" but I assume I still need to download it to my SD to flash it in recovery???

I've installed HTC Sync and uninstalled.....Tried everything.......

Go to the thread on your phone and download it. Check with file explorer to make sure it is in download folder on sd. Go into recovery and flash the ota update for your version.

Boot into recovery. Go to mount and then mount usb. Copy the ota over and install it.

I tried that when I was having the same issue. It keeps showing up as a HTC disc drive. So i just went to the thread in desktop view and downloaded straight to the phone. Would not recognize it as an android device.

Just go to install and then choose the ota zip. Doesn't matter where on your phone you put it.

Put it in your downloads folder. Select install. Find the zip in your download folder and select flash.
Reboot

Yep got it.....
Once I'm pointed in the right direction, I'm usually good to go......
So this OTA Update should fix the Memory Card problem......? What else did it address?

At least I know there is a workaround through TWRP.

Also, thanks for not being a Douche.......
Not everyone has a degree in Computer Science and Applications lol!!!!!

As far as I know it was just the mounting issue. Be sure to thank these guys for their help.
