FIRMWARE

How to Fastboot flash firmware zips:

SD card method also works(outlined below), but I recommend using fastboot
  • Place the zip in your fastboot/adb directory on your computer.
  • Put the device in fastboot(bootloader) mode
    --- (Volume down and power until menu appears, select bootloader using power button)(Download mode should work as well on M9 and HTC 10)
  • Connect the device to the computer
  • Enter the following commands from terminal/command prompt in the fastboot directory, one at a time:
  • fastboot oem rebootRUU (this puts the device in RUU mode) (old process/not needed on HTC10)
  • fastboot flash zip firmware.zip (rename file to firmware.zip to make it simple/optional)
  • It will say that the update did not finish, to flush again, so repeat the above step:
  • fastboot flash zip firmware.zip

Quote:

Important: the flash process halts at around 75% to 90% on phone screen! This is normal and a safety precaution!
The last few percent is the reboot, which is NOT happening automatically, so you get a chance to check the console output before reboot to make sure it is safe to reboot!
The bar will only fill up to 100% once you type the following command:

  • fastboot reboot-bootloader (this reboots the device to bootloader)

If your current fastboot isn't working/throws errors, please use the HTC fastboot in the zip below:
HTC_fastboot.zip
Replace existing commands with the HTC_fastboot prefix.
So for example, instead of:
Code:
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
You would do this instead:
Code:
HTC_fastboot flash zip firmware.zip

How to flash firmware using SDCard Method
(thanks to @Sneakyghost)

Prerequisites:
  • Compatible SDCard, should be formatted with FT32 for older firmware, newer firmware can also handle ExtFS formatted cards.
  • A firmware.zip you would like to flash, taken from Post #2 (Downloads)
  • Phone charged up at least 30% (will fail with low power warning if lower than 30%)
Step-By-Step:
1. Rename your firmware.zip to exactly "2PS6IMG.zip" - make sure you enable "show file extensions" in Windows Explorer, if you rename it on your PC. Else you might end up with a "2PS6IMG.zip.zip" which won't flash.

2. Copy your "2PS6IMG.zip" over to the root of your SDCard. Use a cardreader, or MTP protocol in Android or Recovery, or USB Mass Storage protocol in Recovery, or ADB push the file in Android or Recovery - many methods available.

3. Now, if device is booted into Android, reboot into download mode by running:
Code:
adb reboot download
3.a Or else, if your device is in a different state or you just prefer the button method:
In Android: Press and hold Power and VolDown at the same time for approx. 15 seconds, when the screen and charging LED go dark immediately let go of power, keep holding VolDown a little longer.
During Boot and sometimes when booted into Recovery: Press and hold Power, VolDown and VolUp at the same time for approx. 15 seconds, when the screen and charging LED go dark immediately let go of power and VolUp, keep holding VolDown a little longer.

4. Once Download Mode starts, it will "see" the 2PS6IMG.zip and ask you (yellow text at bottom of screen) if you want to flash the firmware. Press VolUp to confirm and proceed with the flash, or press VolDown to cancel and continue into Download Mode UI.


5. Now check the screen while it flashes. It should stop at "end UI updating. Press Power to continue" - the phone will now shut off! To turn it back on, press and briefly hold power again.

How to Manually apply OTA Updates

Requirements for manually installing OTA:
  • 100% unmodified system (can be restored from RUU, TWRP system.img backup, or the stock rom provided in OP without using debloat or root options in aroma)
  • Stock recovery (can download above)
Place the OTA file on the external sdcard, and reboot to stock recovery (if you don't have SD Card use adb sideload instead, search the web for simple instructions):
Code:
adb reboot recovery
After booting to the stock recovery, you'll probably see a large exclamation mark on the screen.
Press the power button, then short press volume up + volume down to activate the HTC recovery menu.
Use your volume keys to navigate through items.
Navigate to "Apply update from SD card", and press power button to select.
Navigate to your file and press power button to apply the update.
The recovery will now install the OTA.
After reboot, the recovery should automatically install the firmware for you.

Does the red development text on the splash screen bother you after unlocking your device?

If so, I have a modified hboot for you that takes care of it.
This was simply hex edited by me to remove the text from the screen, no other changes were made.
I have tested it and it is 100% proven to work without any side effects.

I originally did this for the Verizon Droid DNA and HTC One (m7) and was asked to do it for the One Max, Butterfly S, HTC One (m8), HTC One (m9), and now also the HTC 10

FROM THIS >>> TO THIS >>>


Let's get to it!
You must be S-Off to do this!


To Install:

  • Download your Modified aboot:

-No Red Text aboots-

2.41.605.12_NoRedText_aboot.zip

Old Files:




Since I initially posted these:
I had a couple requests for a modified hboot/aboot that shows the device as being Locked and S-On, while being completely unlocked and S-Off.
I went ahead and made that as per request and made it for several devices.
The process is the same as it is for the NoRedText aboot, with the exception of the filename.
These also have the red text removed, like the No Red Text aboots above.


-Faux Locked aboots: (not really Locked and S-on but appear that way)

2.41.605.12_FauxLocked_aboot.zip

Old Files:



__________________________

Ok, Now you have your aboot of choice, let's proceed:
  • Place the zip in your fastboot/adb directory on your computer.
  • Put the device in fastboot/Download mode
    (Volume down and power until menu appears, select fastboot using power button)
  • Connect the device to the computer
  • Enter the following commands from terminal/command prompt in the fastboot directory, one at a time:
  • fastboot oem rebootRUU (this puts the device in RUU mode)
  • fastboot flash zip filename_aboot.zip (this flashes the modified aboot zip file)
Important: the flash process halts at around 75% to 90% on phone screen! This is normal and a safety precaution!
The last few percent is the reboot, which is NOT happening automatically, so you get a chance to check the console output before reboot to make sure it is safe to reboot!
The bar will only fill up to 100% once you type the following command:
  • fastboot reboot-bootloader (this reboots the device to bootloader)


That's it, you're done. You can now reboot and not see the red text anymore. ;)

If you have any questions or issues, let me know.



Now for my RED TEXT: :p

You understand and agree that i cannot be held responsible for such or any other damages. 
The flash process is theoretically safe and tested, however you are the brains behind the wheel and you are solely responsible for the execution of the process. 
I will not accept any responsibility. The method itself is developed by Google and HTC, i only provide access and information to it and you execute it.

You understand that you should not do it if you are not willing to accept this risk.

LOL, good old VZW, updating at the speed of snail...plus .1 in the number sequence, that's golden. I am wondering which is going to come first, Nougat on Verizon HTC 10, or the Pixel XL I ordered showing up on my doorstep. At any rate, I installed it and it seems to be working great. Thanks for keeping us up to date bud!!

Thanks, @santod040. Just rolled myself all the way back to pure stock 1.85.605.9, stripping out Magisk and Xposed mods and returning to pure stock recovery and boot to get ready for the imminent Nougat OTA. Works great.

I don't think it's going out on a limb to guess that it will be out in January.
