Hi All,

I see a lot of people asking for stock stuff for the HTC One Mini 2, please find them here:

Stock RUUs - https://forum.xda-developers.com/one...l-ruu-t3425930

BOOT IMAGE
Signed Boot Image : boot_signed.img for booting problems (FOR INTERNATIONAL/EUROPEAN DEVICES ONLY)

PROCESS
Enter bootloader and then enter fastboot and type the command :
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot_signed.img
fastboot reboot bootloader
Nandroid Backup for restoring to stock, I have used this, working fine (Can be restored through TWRP): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347818782 (FOR INTERNAITIONAL/EUROPEAN DEVICES ONLY)

Stock Firmware: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95784891001615234

Stock Recovery: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24052804347822267 (Newer)
Stock Recovery: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95784891001615233

Original Page (German): http://www.handy-faq.de/forum/htc-on...ckups-t309020/

LINKS WERE WORKING WHEN I POSTED THEM, DOWNLOAD AT THE EARLIEST AS MAY BE THEY WONT WORK WHEN YOU NEED THEM, SO JUST DOWNLOAD AND KEEP.

STEPS TO RESTORE NANDROID BACKUP THROUGH TWRP:
- REBOOT AND ENTER TWRP, PERFORM A BACKUP (THIS WILL CREATE A TWRP BACK UP FOLDER WITH DEVICE SERIAL NUMBER IN THE SD CARD)
- DOWNLOAD AND EXTRACT THE NANDROID BACK UP FILE
- PLACE THE EXTRACTED FILES IN TO THE TWRP>BACKUP<DEVICE SERIAL NUMBER> FOLDER IN THE SD CARD
- RESTART THE DEVICE AND ENTER TWRP, CHOOSE RESTORE
- LOCATE THE FOLDER COPIED IN THE ROOT OF THE SDCARD
- SWIPE TO RESTORE
- FOR SOME REASON THE NANDROID BACKUP DOES NOT CONTAIN CALCULATOR, FLASH LIGHT WHICH CAN BE DOWNLOADED HERE: http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/htc-corporation/

What is the exact problem you are facing when flashing the stock file. PLEASE EXPLAIN FOR BETTER UNDERSTANDNG.

ELSE YOU CAN TRY THE BELOW.

NB: I AM ASSUMING THINGS AND GIVING THIS INFORMATION, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT HAPPENS AS I DONT KNOW THE EXACT PROBLEM YOU ARE FACING.

Make sure device is 100% battery.

1st try this:

1-Download this file: [ https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_1...MzA/edit?pli=1 ] and install in Windows (Run as Administrator).
2-Open Command window and type:
Code:
cd c:\adb
3-now on your device use Vol keys to choose and power key to select, and choose FASTBOOT
4-now download the attached file boot_signed.rar (extract the file in C:\adb folder)
5-type in the command window:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot_signed.img
5-type in the command window:
Code:
fastboot erase cache
6-type in command window:
Code:
fastboot reboot
IF THIS DID NOT WORK, THEN TRY THIS:

Download this [ https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=95916177934555508 ] file and rename it to 0P8BIMG.zip and place it into the SD card (MMC Card), restart the device and let it boot into the HBoot menu.

Reboot device from the boot mode, if the device automatically reboot into the boot menu then it will start flashing the file automatically.

Good Luck, let me know how it went.

Try and let me know.

this is excellent, all in one place...
However, please forgive my ignorance in recovery/backup terminology (I hope it is not just me) but I get confused by the use of 'Nandroid' backup, Stock Rom, and .zip and .img files for flashing.
I have successfully used TWRP to flash the NostromoPop ROM, but have not been successful with any other .zip file supposedly a Stock ROM.
I have been hoping that somebody could put a rooted Stock ROM so that I can try it as a way to get around the KitKat blocks on writing to the SD card for some of my autosync apps.
Am I making any sense?
Many thanks if you can help

Hi,

As I understand you cannot flash a stock ROM with customer Recovery, as far as I know you need stock Recovery to flash a stock ROM, I remember trying stock ROM on TWRP but it failed, could be due to some other reason, I read somewhere it has something to do with file signatures.

As for SD write fix, you need to have root access other than that there is no fix for it, rooting with SuperUser Binary... I myself did want to try it now that I am back on stock but then I am greedy for Marshmallow (if they could fix that Loud Speaker issue) I am all in for Android M, I tried to get in touch with people on the Cyanogen Forums but no luck as I have not yet received verification email, tried so many times, no luck and as it seems there is no Marshmallow development on HTC One Mini 2....

I will wait and see how it goes...

If I am correct you can keep stock ROM and flash SU Binary and get root access and then install https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...=nextapp.sdfix to get it done with, it ought to work, haven't tried myself...

The recovery image you gave seems a little broken, but the backup worked...thought I recommend a factory reset unless you want the system language to be weird...

Which recovery image have you used, I have flashed the newer version successfully, yes the backup worked and has non-English language as default.

The command:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img
fastboot erase cache
If you could elaborate a "little broken"

Hi,

I believe you flashed a recovery with another recovery, which I think is not the right way, the right way is to use the command to overwrite TWRP with stock recovery.

HI,

Just wanted to know if you are having any issues with low audio after restoring Android backup from TWRP, I feel my audio is way too low and cant be heard just if I am outside my room..

I didn't have any audio problems, it could just be you being used to cm's 3rd party BoomSound replacement

Well that would exsplain why some elements of the stock recovery remained after I reflashed twrp with a app on my phone, e.g. it fixed the image I get when I hook my device up to power when it is turned off...before that it would just boot me into a unusable twrp homepage
