Default [RUU] M8 Google Edition Conversion. 4.4.4 - RUU Zip Non-Rooted & Pre-Rooted


This will NOT work on a CDMA HTC One GSM ONLY!

PSA After converting you will not be able to flash Sense based roms due to the different size of the system partitions between the sense version and the GPe. To get back to sense please follow the steps in post #2



This thread is NOT to support changing your MID, Changing your CID, Rooting or Flashing a custom recovery. If you need to learn how to do any of those do NOT use this thread to post in. Post in the respective dedicated threads to complete these processes. This thread is ONLY to support flashing the RUU. Nothing more, nothing less.

This is NOT a general 4.4.4 discussion thread.

Furthermore, if you need any more detailed instructions than what's stated in this post then you really shouldn't be doing this to your device. If you need a "video" or ask for "step by step" instructions you will NOT get anything more than what's in this post (at least from me). There is no easier way to do this process, there is no easier way to explain it. If you read the post and still don't understand what to do then I advise you to leave your phone alone... Read and then read some more until you understand everything.. WE WILL NOT SPOON FEED YOU IN THIS THREAD!

This procedure is not easy and is not really noob friendly, well flashing the RUU is not really difficult but it's the prerequisites that are more complex/risky. If the instructions aren't clear enough for you or you require further hand holding then I'm sure most of us would advise you stay away from the process.

Also, please do not PM me for support. PM's will not be answered. Post it in the thread. It helps other's having the same issue find a solution. If it's over PM it only benefits you and not everyone else


Prerequisites

S-Off,
ADB knowledge
Fastboot knowledge

Instructions:
First you are going to have to have s-off on your device. Thread for S-off (and support for S-off) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2708464

Full Conversion 4.4.4 RUU ZIP 2.12.1700.1

This will wipe EVERYTHING INCLUDING YOUR INTERNAL SD CARD!!!! PLEASE REMOVE YOUR EXTERNAL CARD IF YOU HAVE ONE so make sure you back up the contents before running this, but you'll end up with a factory-fresh GE. Of course, there's still no support, warranty or responsibility implied or otherwise.

The 4.4.4 RUU Zip supports the following MIDs and CIDs if your MID or CID is not in this list you will have to modify the android-info.txt file in the zip to match your MID/CID

modelid: 0P6B12000
modelid: 0P6B17000
modelid: 0P6B*****
cidnum: 11111111
cidnum: T-MOB010
cidnum: CWS__001
cidnum: BS_US001
cidnum: GOOGL001


TO GET OTA UPDATES AND NOT HAVE THEM FAIL YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR CID TO MATCH THE GPE CID(it has yet to be determined if the mid must match the GPE as well)
In fastboot mode type fastboot oem writecid GOOGL001. If you take the OTA without having your Cid set to GOOGL001 the firmware in the ota does not get flashed and anything controlled by the kernel won't work (camera, wifi etc) you must set your Cid BEFORE taking the update.

(please note.. If your model id or cid is not supported you can open up the android-info.txt file that's in the zip and replace one of the model ids or cids listed to match yours.)




Code:
adb reboot bootloader
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
Code:
 fastboot flash zip RUU-HTC_One_M8_GPE_4.4.4-2.12.1700.1.zip
you will the following message:
Code:
FAILED (remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately)
Just run the same command again:
Code:
fastboot flash zip RUU-HTC_One_M8_GPE_4.4.4-2.12.1700.1.zip
Code:
fastboot reboot

If you want to flash a custom recovery you will have to flash back to stock recovery to get the OTA's
You can get the GPE Stock recovery here

Special thanks to @pasker17 for allowing me to walk him through pulling all the partitions!!
@beaups and crew for S-off




Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you use this and brick your device or if your device blows up, implodes, or flames start shooting from it or it kills your neighbor's dog. Flash at your own risk. This process is not for the faint of heart so I am not responsible.... It was the other guy... I swear....

I took external sd card out to be safe. The internal one will be wiped.. I didn't want to take any chances. I'll add that to the op. Didn't have that issue with the m7 :P
