Hi

Please sorry for cross posting but I'm at my wits' end.

Long story short, I was looking to buy a second hand htc one 801e through an intermediary but I got scammed, and the seller won't accept it back.

I was thinking, since its a kind of a stock android 4.1.1 installed on it (looking a lot like a Cyanogenmod) , what can ROM can I flash it with, and how, to clear all the fakery from my sight? I'm relatively OK using ADB (the only thing it recognizes, one cannot flashboot it). Please what can I do with it to make it useful?

Please help!

Yours in shame and anticipation,

If it's not an HTC One, you're Off topic.

Find out what it is and then use Google, nothing here will work.

Hi..

Are you sure? It does look very much like a cyanogenmod under the hood..
"flashboot getvar all"

just hangs at "<waiting for device>

adb devices prints out:

0123456789ABCDEF device

Yes I have no hope of using a HTC rom. I just want to be sure that if I flash it with a stock android rom (maybe something from google straight) it would work

Im pretty sure you will not find anything for that phone unless you are a dev and make your own rom for that phone.
