If you really need flash RUU...
1. Go back the original hboot if you flashed customized one before
2. Change CID back to original CID if you changed it before
3. Return to S-On
4. Re-lock phone
5. Flash RUU
Also, if you flash 4.3 RUU, the hboot will be upgrade, which means the current S-Off solution will not work. You have to flash RUU without hboot to keep the ability to get S-Off.
i think this is the problem, the HBOOT, can i use the files from a ZIP file, (i mean an ORIGINAL ZIP FILE)? if so how can i flash only the HBOOT, radio ETC???
BTW my cid is original, and i just relocked my bootloader
just found the original base firmwares thread and i got the files, the question now is, can i DOWNGRADE? im on 1.54 and want to go back to 1.44, please notice im S-OFF, or just flash the base firmware from hboot 1.54?
