Hi guys,

I'm in need of some help, my beloved HTC One has fallen victim to the dreaded Purple Camera issue and I need to send it back.

I'm on HBOOT 1.56 and I need to turn S-ON back on as my phone says that my phone is a "Test Device" in bold red writing if you reset the phone and under About>Help

I don't want any warranty issues with HTC as being in South Africa, support is very limited as it is and they will find any excuse not to try fix it.

If anyone can give out any tips or advice I'd be happy to donate even.

I've done lots of Googling and tried a couple things but it's all for older HBOOT's than mine.

Please and thanks guys.

First, post the output of ''fastboot getvar all'' (except imei and serialno)

Do NOT S-ON for the moment.

ok so you'll need to downgrade your phone first because turning back s-on on hboot 1.56 will trigger the tampered flag in the bootloader.

use the 1.28.401.7 ruu with the guru bootloader reset tool

refer to this guide and follow instructions carefully. Again, do not s-on on hboot 1.55 and above, only do it on 1.44 or 1.54.

Awesome! I just downgraded to 1.44,

Can I go ahead now and use fastboot oem writesecureflag 3 to S-ON the device?

Just wanting to make 100% sure.

My phone still says Locked, I flashed the 1.28.401.12_hboot_1.44.zip

I haven't actually done the 1.28.401.7 RUU, Is that what I do after I flashed the 1.44 hboot?

My phone is on 4.4.2.

DO NOT GO S-ON

first run the RUU.EXE or the flash the RUU.ZIP

then we can consider s-on, with S-On you cannot downgrade!!! and you'll be majorly stuck.

let me know when you've done the ruu



PS: please follow the guide

1- remove tampered set locked
2- run / flash ruu 1.28.401.7
3- boot up once to make sure everything is OK, do NOT take OTA
4- go S-ON if you really need to
