Hello.

I need some help to restore to factory.

The phone is the HTC One M9e -- Android Version: 5.0.2 -- HTC Sense Version 7.0 -- Software Number: 1.03.709.13

I have unlocked the bootloader and the software status is **Modified**

I believe the problem is when I used fastboot to install TWRP 3.0.0.2 without reading that this is actually an upgrade and TWRP earlier versions must have been intalled prior. As a result now, I am unable to get past -- BOOT TO RECOVERY MODE -- When I press power button, I see...

"This build is for development purposes only..."

The only option left is to reboot the phone after this. Here are some additional details...

HTC_HIMAR 128 SHIP S-ON
CID-HTC__621
LK-1.01.0000 013d9a88
OS-1.03.709.13

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
Thanks..

I guess Captain Throwback removed the download link from his thread (that version has never been available on the official website). [Edit: The following recommendations apply to the M9 (codename: HIMA).] According to him the recommended versions are 2.8.7.1-CPTB-Beta1 (can be found in his thread) for firmware versions 2.x or lower and 3.0.0-2 (can be found on the official website) for firmware versions 3.x. I've been using both versions without any problems.

Edit @cnsops: I just saw that you own a M9e (codename: HIMAR) and not a M9 (codename: HIMA). I'm not sure whether those TWRP versions are compatible with your phone. You might risk a brick by flashing them.

Nice... Thanks for noticing, and the "heads up"
I didn't think that mattered, but it does. I won't be making that mistake again. :(

I know this is a rather old thread but I am having a terrible headache trying to find that .img for m9e, can anybody post a relevant download source? My phone won't take any TWRPs at all anymore. Looks like I got myself into trouble... Thanks in advance!

    You should be able to get to download mode and flash twrp 2.9.0.1 and then supersu 2.65..
