In case, you want the stock boot/recovery to install Magisk like me, you can get it out of the firmware.zip inside the OTA zip, which you can download from HTC server using the link:

Taiwan model 1.10.709.23:
http://fotadl-az.htc.com/secure/OTA....05.709.12_release_517077z7dxrjhjj6rk2y9h.zip
Taiwan model 1.23.709.3:
http://fotadl-az.htc.com/secure/OTA....10.709.23_release_518569sr63mm3mtji85ret.zip
Hong Kong model 1.10.400.23
http://fotadl-az.htc.com/secure/OTA....05.400.13_release_517158ov5r8lbbi6tc9m38.zip

I have extracted the recovery.img and boot.img for Taiwan version. If someone doesn't want to extract it themselves, let me know through PM. I can send it to you.

I would like to know this too. I have the Chinese U11+ and I'm desperately looking for the boot.img and recovery.img for this variant (2Q4D200)

Thanks in advance!
screenshot of your software information page in settings showing "Software number" (e.g. 1.10.709.23 for me, it would be 1.xx.1405.xx for you).

Thanks nenebear. Is this is the OTA file to go from stock 1.03.1405.1 to latest 1.05.1405.16 ?

I found the RUU's for the version of my phone also. Can anybody here confirm that the stock recovery zip file found at the following link will allow me to go back to stock recovery if I decide to flash TWRP?

Thanks guys

Please help me!

I have unlocked my bootloader, installed twrp. Unfortunately, twrp is worthless since it can not be used as it seems...

Now I wonder if I can use this guide to root my phone:

"1. Download http://fotadl-az.htc.com/secure/OTA_...bbi6tc9m38.zip
Edit / Important: Read next post down below before Step 2/
2. Extract firmware.zip.
3. Extract boot.img from firmware.zip from step 2 and transfer to the /sdcard.
4. Install Magisk Manager and select Beta channel
5. Click install and choose to use "patch the stock boot image" method. It will browse you to /sdcard. Choose the boot.img from step 3. After its done, it will give you path of patched boot image.
6. Transfer the patched boot image from step 5 to PC using 'adb pull'
7. Boot the phone into download mode and flash the patched boot image.
8. Reboot and enjoy!!"

Where/how can I get the correct boot.img för my device?

My version is "1.10.401.23 9.0_g CL991677 release-keys" and none of the download links match my version? Or can I use some of them anyway?

I would be very happy and thanksful if I got help so I can get root access!

Best regards/ David

I think yours is the Europe model. If so, download the following ZIP:

https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=889964283620770441

Extract firmware.zip from it, and you will then extract boot.img from the firmware.zip, and then, patch that in magisk manager. Hope that helps!

I should have a European model. If I'm looking in the Download mode:
"htc_ocmdugl PVT S-ON
LK-1.0.0.0000
RADIO 8998-002772-1711021849
OpenDSP-UNKNOWN
OS 1.10.401.23
Nov 25 2017.01: 13: 33 (991677)"

If something goes wrong, or if it would be the wrong boot.img, can I flash a complete RUU via adb fastboat so I dont brick my phone?

That link matches your version exactly. You should be good with boot.img from that ZIP. Make backup of your stuff and be very careful with commands you fire...:)

Hmm.. It is 25 pcs. compressed zip-files in this download.
In one of the zip there is "boot_signed.img"

It must be it. But when I try to unzip it doesn't work. It says the file is corrupt [emoji852]️.

I will try to download the file again, mayby the download failed.

Edit: The file is corrupt. I cant unzip it :(

Root HTC U11+ European model software number 1.10.401.23

To root your HTC U11+ thru twrp use version 3.2.0.0
1. make sure you got Magisk-15.2 on you sd-card
2. boot into TWRP and leave system read only
3.goto install and install Magisk (in my case 15.2)
4. you will get error, like "can't mount data" (not to worry)
5. after install GO BACK!! DO NOT REBOOT!!
6. format data AND THEN reboot!!
7 You'll have to setup your phone as a new one; finish that and install Magisk_Manager
8 your now rooted!!! check with root checker

Hope this will help you;
