Question [Q] Back to Stock for Bell HTC One

I have been reading a lot of guides and I am still not sure how I can take my Bell phone and bring it back to stock. I have S-OFF and GPE right not which I installed via a zipped RUU.

Now, if I want to get the latest 4.2.2 that Bell made available for the HTC One, I have to somehow be able to get the OTA and have no custom recovery. I could not find an RUU ZIP or EXE for bell (666), only a stock ROM. I could install that but comes the OTA, it won't install because of the custom recovery.

How can I go back to stock from here? I have been told by a few to just stick to the GPE edition but I would like to got back to sense.

Thank you.

NKK71 helped me bring the phone back to stock GPE, but I'm getting weird problems and I am not sure why, but I remember I didn't have those problems with stock. Stuff like streaming not working over WiFi, MMS messages not sent when I have WiFi enabled, stuff like that.

The problem is that Bell (x.xx.666x.) has no RUU that I can find, only a nandroid which I could use but that won't give me the option to get the OTA (I think)

I just updated the firmware today, the one I had was for 4.3 so I upgraded that. I'm just not sure if the problems come from the fact that there is no HTC One google edition in Canada and that either my radios or firmware are not working perfectly on bell.

why not try the nandroid and see how it goes?

Hmm, you are going to have a HBOOT mismatch if you run the Canadian Restock method in my guide posted in my signature, as it uses 1.55HBOOT for 4.3 JB, but you are on 1.56 HBOOT.

However if you run the RUU ZIP file for TELUS, you will get the right HBOOT. http://www.htc1guru.com/dld/ruu-zip-...decrypted-zip/

Download and rename to Telus.zip
See if you can do this:

fastboot oem writecid TELUS001
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip Telus.zip
fastboot flash zip Telus.zip (You will need to run this command twice due to HBOOT downgrade)
fastboot reboot (if it doesn't reboot automatically)

NOTE: I have not personally ran the ZIP file above, but it should be fine.
