Check Settings / About / Software Information / Software number, and the third number of the four is the region number of your firmware. Just copy it here and we can see if any of these files may help you. :)
About flashing, you'll find discussion and threads linked here in the m9+ RUU thread, especially in third post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/one-m9/one-m9-general/ruu-m9-ruu-file-t3152206

If I had the money/donation to cover it (~500$) I'd go forward and buy an One ME too and start to experiment and dev for it, but it's too much in one year after buying m9+ without a pledge/fund thread of some kind from users.
Hopefully some dev might step up who owns this great new device soon.

My region Number is 708 which turned to be for Hong Kong so i am neither 720 or 1405
From my understanding both RUUs won't flash on my device unless i am on S-OFF

But can i use the stock recovery fron the hboot zip ??
And if the answer is yes, it won't matter which one in this case i guess

tough luck, because, no, you can't use recovery of another region if you want to get back to receiving and flashing official otas.
And I can't find firmware for Hong Kong region :(
If you're still on stock , I recommend staying until there's a method to s-off and flash other region firmware. Or till someone posts Hong Kong's firmware

I guess javacard and xtc2clip already could work to get soff.

What are you trying to do exactly?

The new ways HTC introduced into update system this became a much harder task than before. Also with aboot which replaced hboot, there's no way I know of to back your own stock recovery up, as you cannot simply boot a recovery without flashing it, like it worked on earlier hboot models.
That and the thing that HTC is aiming at smaller markets makes it a headache. It's hard to come by all the different regions firmware

So to understand you quite well in simple english
For the current time , i ( with region 708 ) cannot root while having ability to get OTA by ANY MEANS

Why can't i just flash the whole RUU of another region ( like i did with samsung )
I could flash another ROM with all its partitions from any other region

That's because of safety. Firmware contains radio and other things like configuration which may render your phone radio useless for some bands etc. Because even regions or simply carriers receive different hardware too to some extent.
In the case of one me I think there are not much difference, yet there are frequency regulations which the region implies
But if you get s off, security off, you can try other regions with setting carrierid to supercid.Most probably it will work just fine, but as you can understand there's risk which manufacturer won't let happen unless you deliberately choose that.

I can't thank you enough matr
So to conclude my status :

1- keep stock and forget rooting for the current time

2- Root after flashing TWRP that is for us while keeping S-ON and be at safe area and forget about OTAs and updates from HTC

3- Deep into S-OFF area to try to flash other regions RUU and have the OTA back BUT it won't be a safe journey at all and the device may be bricked ( especially that it doesn't have threads or devs to support it and help me )

Tell me dude, if you were in my shoes which option you would go for

As a remote possibility, you can try dig into m9ew Chinese forums, maybe there's rom development, but most probably China roms. Even rooted and with developer updates too I guess.

Without that the first option seems the least risky.

BTW for what app would you root if I may ask?

I tried earlier but couldn't get to something useful
I will try to dig again

I want to root to have TB and LP for ADs removal and in app purchases and custom patches and patched play store

Another major one is 3g auto toggling for power saver which requires rooting starting from lollipop

Any sign for a another variant for the device?

Hey guys
I am a One ME user and I want to get the Android M update and I am rooted at the moment and with a TWRP recovery downloaded from a Chinese site. I actually want to get back the stock recovery and unroot the phone to prepare for the OTA update. My device is apparently hima_ace_ml_dtul_007 and it wasn't in the list above. Can u guys explain whether the both RUU(s) can be used in my device? My device is probably a Hong Kong variant as I bought it from a local carrier.

Many Thanks!

Sorry @tbalden for bothering you,
I just want to know as i really can't get it quite well
I cannot flash any partition from fastboot if I have Locked bootloader and S-ON , Am i right ??
If I unlocked bootloader ( via htcdev site and there is no other way as i understood ) but still have S-ON
then I can flash certain partitions only ( System & recovery i guess )

Then why just i unlock the bootloader then flash TWRP then backup unmodified sytem partition then flash supersu to have root

Then to get back major update from OTA >> Flash the recovery only via fastboot ( from a different region hboot zip ) and i think this should be possible as i have unlocked bootloader >> then restore the unmodified system partition so I will lose root again >> have the OTA update and re do the process again

I guess OTA is still ok if i have unlocked bootloader only

Please tell me where are the flaws in my scenario as i am currently scratching my head and searching the whole internet for answers
Thanks again for assistance dude :)
