Relocking the bootloader is a single fastboot command: fastboot oem lock

Flashing recovery is also a single fastboot command (after you've downloaded the recovery you want, and placed it in your fastboot folder on your PC). OK, two commands if you really want to be thorough and wipe cache before flashing recovery.

If you aren't familiar with adb/fastboot, its easy to learn, and quite valuable. Frankly, anyone modding Android phones should know how to use this tool (at least the basics). Using a toolkit to shortcut that learning process leaves you up the creek without a paddle if things go south flashing ROMs, mods, etc (which is practically inevitable).

And I can't imagine why you would need the help of a toolkit to run an RUU. RUU is a Windows executable program. Once you've connected the phone to the PC, you literally just click on the RUU icon on your PC, and the program will launch and walk you through the rest.




The OTA route is very different from the RUU route.

If you intend to return to stock ROM and stock recovery to update by OTA, there is no need to relock the bootloader (and in fact, in this case I do not recommend relocking).

After OTA update, you will need to install TWRP again and flash SuperSU to root. You will need the current version of TWRP (2.8.7); and also the latest version (2.46) of SuperSU, as older versions don't work on Lollipop.

Also, be aware that you need to be connected to AT&T's network in order to receive OTAs on the ATT version. No idea if you are on ATT or not, but I know some folks on here are not (and in that case, RUU is your only option to update "officially").

No im not on att i bought the phone from eBay and have shipped it down here to panama but i intended on just downloading the ota from htcdev website ......and could u please explain that one part about not locking my bootloader ... Do i just flash stock 444 recovery and then click on the ruu file so it walks me though the process..... And then with the ota is it the same procedure? Or do i have to place the ota in a certain place in the phone memory for the phone to recognise it and flash like that..... Or if you think its just better to download the 5.01 ruu and go that route .....Sorry to be such a bug and thanks for the advice

Not sure how I guessed that (you weren't on AT&T's network), but since that is the case, as I already mentioned, for the AT&T version, its not possible to download the OTA files from HTC.

I've already stated that RUU and OTA are very different processes (Post 370). I'm not sure why you are now asking if they are the same. Please forget any notion that the process for RUU is any way similar to OTA (there are many critical differences).

For RUU:
- You absolutely cannot RUU with an unlocked bootloder. Only exception is if you have s-off.
- No need to restore stock recovery.

For OTA:
- Stock ROM is required (also needs to match your firmware)
- Stock recovery is required (also needs to match your firmware)
- Relocking bootloader is not required

The only way you will get the OTA file, is uploaded by another user (since you can't get it from HTC).

The OTA route is significantly more complicated than RUU; and with more chances for error. OTA method requires you to download and restore the right stock ROM, download and restore the right stock recovery, download the right OTA file, and put it on the phone. If any of those are not available, or if you do any of those steps wrong, the whole process fails, and you are stuck trying to figure out what went wrong. Also, for the AT&T version, the needed files are often not available (since the RUU exists and is easier).

So as I've already stated, the RUU is the easier and better route. Just relock the bootloader with a single command. Then run the RUU (either 3.42 or 4.28 RUUs should work). Very little chance for error.

The only downside to RUU is that it will wipe the phone. But if doing any significant changes to the phone (unlocking bootloader, root, updating OS) you should be prepared for data loss in any case, and backing up your data accordingly.

Ok thanks for the advice .. I think i will go the 4.28 ruu route and btw i did find the stock att recovery and the ota is available too i just didnt know there was a easier way ..... Hence all the dumbass questions ..... Thanks alot for clearing that up for me .......and the time for explaining it
