Smile [Q] HTC One unlocked, tampered, S-ON and custom recovery - Can I do OTA

Hi,

I have an HTC One PN07120. It is unlocked, tampered S-ON, has custom recovery installed, and is running AT&T 4.3 JellyBean stock.
In a few days Sense 6.0 OTA update will become available for my device, so I was wondering if I can just normally run the setup and update my system or I have to relock my device or something?

PLEASE RESPOND

So if I got you right, only thing that matters is that I have stock recovery instead of custom recovery. And how do I do that?

You should be fully stock, including recovery, before taking an OTA, except that you can (and should) stay s-off and unlocked. You may not even get the OTA otherwise.

So I think I have found the stock recovery needed for my device. Now there is a small problem, I have 2 stock recovery files for my device and I do not know wich one to choose because when I typed "fastboot getvar all" I didn't find any information at "version main", just blank space. How should I know wich one to pick?

did you change radio?

hboot 1.55 + MID + CID would indicate you are on 3.xx.502.x version

so i guess: http://d-h.st/D8F or http://d-h.st/6bH would be a suitable recovery, but you need to have your phone's ROM 100% stock
