The above is the thread you're looking for. I freaked out, which is always the first step. Don't freak out. It's been too long since I jacked with a HTC phone. It'll be a lot longer before I do it again.
Following the directions from the link above put it in this state. Now I'm stuck. Help please.
You are trying to flash the m7 (regular HTC one) onto the t6 (HTC one max). You keep trying that and you will break something. Go to the Dev section and get my one max ruu for vzw and try that instead.
The link in your third post is my thread for the correct ruu for your phone.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
