if your device hardware match the GSM variant then you can
if didn't then you can't

Your device is m8_whl and this RUU is meant for m8_ul or m8_ul_ca only.

Return to stock .. if you're lucky you still can use your device but lose the ability to connect to 3G/4G/LTE.
(because you most probably already bricked the radio after your flash the firmware which is not meant for your device variant)

RUU Not Working?
Hi,

I followed your instructions and the Developer Edition rom flashed and appears to be working fine, thanks very much.

After setting the phone up I wanted to try and test flashing again with RUU_M8_UL_M60_SENSE70_MR_BrightstarUS_WWE_6.12.154 0.4.exe . The process fails after "Verifying information on your Android phone. Please wait..." with ERROR 170 USB CONNECTION ERROR. I've checked and the USB connection seems to be fine. Is this to be expected?

Thanks again.

I was unable to flash the rom.zip with google's fastboot.exe (recogniced wrong size, header error, etc.....)!
Use htc_fastboot.exe found in the same temporary folder as rom.zip!

Worked for me. Why flash firmware first??
OP instructions worked for me . Was coming from US AT&T / Cingular (Cricket?)

Why did we flash firmware zip firmware and THEN flash the RUU pulled from the temp folder?
