I am trying to revert to stock so I can return the phone to Verizon.
I used WeakSauce to gain S-off
I have SuperSU installed
I went from stock to a "tether unlocked stock" version, then later I wanted to try CyogenMod before returning the phone. All went smoothly.
Now I want to revert back to Stock Verizon HTC Sense 6.0 - I found a ROM and flashed it with CWM
It looks good except every time it restarts or powers on I get a message in red at the bottom "This build is for development purposes only..." etc. (plus it's still unlocked with S-Off).
Obviously not wanting THIS I tried to revert to stock with an RUU obtained at androidmods dot com. (i'd post a link but I am prevented)
I couldn't find a pure stock ROM on XDA other than the one I flashed that gives me that red writing error
Anyway, I got to the bootloader and ran the code
Fastboot oem rebootRUU
When I went to flash the rom:
fastboot flash zip RUU_File_Name.zip
I got the below error
target reported max download size of 1830711296 bytes
load_file: could not allocate 1610682630 bytes
error: cannot load '0P6BIMG.zip': Not enough space
(There is PLENTY of space btw)
Now I read that I can try with an SD card.
I've obtained an SD card from my old phone.
I know it has to be in FAT32 but I don't know how to format it. I don't have an SD reader on my PC and frankly time is running out. I need to return this phone in a day.
Can anyone help?
I'd really like to get this phone back to stock and then RELOCK and S-ON the phone before turning it in.
I don't know what kind of tests they are going to run when I go to return it and don't want to get caught here.
Also, before anyone asks, I did not back up my phone on day 1 like I should have. I did not have a complete understanding of how all of this worked and thought at ANY time I could "Reset to Factory Default" and I would magically go back to stock...
Thanks in advance!
