Hey guys,
I'm new here so bear with me.
I have HTC One m7 unlocked version in India.
I want to root my device and to do so I'll have to unlock the bootloader which will remove certain apps like flashlight, calculator etc.
I want to keep using stock rom and be able to get OTA updates which requires all the missing apps as it checks md5.
To avoid that I was thinking of making an ADB backup. Will that backup those apps? And if yes then how to put those apps back after rooting so as to get OTA updates?

Please help.

there's two way command based or app based
If you want just backup app apk use any app backup software
If you need settings for those app also use Helium app from play store it will help you much
We can help you better if you provide more info like android version firmware version dual /single SIM

This contains the software information etc.
The problem is that the flashlight and calculator apps are in the /data folder and not in the /system.
So while unlocking the /data gets wiped completely. I don't want that because the OTA checks md5 and if those apps are not there, it won't update.

Have you tried this yourself? If yes then did your OTA work?

Can you be more specific as I'm completely new to this world. I haven't yet unlocked my bootloader. So I want to be very sure before doing this. I really want to receive those OTA updates after rooting.
Please explain in detail.

unlocking boot loader wipes all data including phone storage except system so some apps & data at data/preload also deleted when ota update script checks & it not found it fails ota so after unlocking you need restore all that data for ota check
Basically India Rom 4.4.2 sense 5.5 data/preload have 5-6 apps & weather animation vedio folder so you need all that matter to restore
For restore you also need root & file manager (root explorer)
If you wanna unlocked boot loader & root then ota geather all stuff or you can use stock Rom reset which have all apps you needed
So you have two options backup these apps Stock Rom reset or manually restore apps with help of root

Ota also match md5 or sha1 property of every app file so you can't take them from any other country Rom because they have different md5
Some apps I remember calculator flash light HTC ringtones trimmer Twitter client HTC sound recorder soundhound 7digital
Goto these apps setting check if it can be uninstall so they are in data/preload check them
Weather animation vedio can be found in any custom Rom system/media folder
