I'm attempting another go on getting back to stock on my HOX.
I'm looking for the stock recovery 4.18.401.2.

I've found a lin k in a earlier thread, but there I can only find the 4.18.401.3.
Does this matter? Can I use that one?

Am I correct, when restoring a nandroid back up, that I first need tot flash the recovery.img (and the boot.img) from the nandroid back-up, and after I restored the backup, flash the stock recovery?

Any 4.18 recovery will do. And yes, to restore a nandroid, flash the recovery that it's inside the backup folder, flash the boot.img, and restore from recovery the nandroid backup. Then u can flash the stock 4.18 recovery to go 100% stock.

So I installed the nandroid back up, after flashing the boot and recovery from the backup.
After that I flashed the stock recovery, but just no luck.
When I boot into recovery I get the custom recovery.
Also when installing the OTA ..401.04 update, it failes and returns to the custom recovery.
After the backup and flashing the recovery, I did not flash the stock boot.img.
Is that the problem?

Then you either flashed the wrong recovery, or you didn't flash it correct.

Flash this one
