I think it was the M7 RUU that was on the HTCDev site

If there is no RUU then just grab the back from the Backups thread and use that and your CID to substitute into this guide

That's the stock recovery, press vol up and power to get into the menu

And yes, you'll get the OTA

Yeah, that screen is the stock recovery. You then hold vol up and press power and a menu with blue writing comes up (example below)

There are no RUUs available. If there was this guide wouldn't exist

You need to flash the stock backup and FW for the Developer Edition if you got it in the US, this guide only covers the EU build so if you need to send it back for warranty it'll be rejected
