Phone Firmware
FIRMWARE:

MARSHMALLOW:
Combined Marshmallow Firmware Zip
If coming from a previous Android version, you can use the following zip to get caught up on all previous firmwares in one shot.
This zip contains all firmware files from the first OTA through the latest, with the newest files replacing the older ones, while keeping the ones that did not get replaced in newer firmwares.
This will give you all needed firmware files for the current Marshmallow release, no matter what you had previously.
m8vzw_AllInOne_Firmware_6.21.605.3 (will NOT wipe the device)

Otherwise, you can just flash the incremental firmware update posted below:
6.21.605.3_NoBoot-TWRP3.0.0-1_firmware.zip

6.21.605.3_NoBoot-NoRecovery_firmware.zip

6.21.605.3_FULL_firmware.zip


LOLLIPOP:
Combined Lollipop Firmware Zip
If coming from a previous Android version, you can use the following zip to get caught up on all previous firmwares in one shot.
This zip contains all firmware files from the first OTA through the last, with the newest files replacing the older ones, while keeping the ones that did not get replaced in newer firmwares.
This will give you all needed firmware files for the last Lollipop release, no matter what you had previously.
m8vzw_AllInOne_Firmware_4.17.605.9 (will NOT wipe the device)

Otherwise, you can just flash the incremental firmware update posted below:

4.17.605.9 Modified Firmware - Removed stock boot.img and stock recovery and WILL NOT WIPE device
(suitable firmware update for most cases, especially if running custom rom and recovery)

4.17.605.9 Full Firmware - Includes stock boot.img and recovery and WILL WIPE device

No Red Text and Faux Locked Hboots - my m8 hboot thread

4.17.605.9 Stock Recovery

4.17.605.9 Stock Boot.img/Kernel


How to manually flash firmware zips:
(sd card method also works, but I recommend fastboot)
  • Place the zip in your fastboot/adb directory on your computer.
  • Put the device in fastboot 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 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)

That's it, you're done. You can now reboot and will be running the latest firmware and radios.
If you have any questions or issues, let me know.

Awesome! But, what is it? Latest firmware appears to be 4.17.605.5. First guess was Stagefright fix, but that would be done in ROM, not firmware. Did our phone get an OTA today?

Yes, there was an OTA to .9 with the stagefright patch/security update.
I'll be posting a full stock rooted rom in a bit...

I tried the non-wipe fastboot method. It updates through the console correctly, the software version shows the .9 in the boot loader, but when I go to settings and check the version, it still shows the .5 and I get the upgrade nag screen.

Edit: I think I fixed it, I had to go into recovery and wipe my cache and dalvik cache.

Edit2: Nvm, I thought it was fixed because I saw the updating apps window, but it's still .5 in Settings

Your updated firmware will show in fastboot mode only.
You will need to update/flash a rom based on the new OTA for Settings/Software info to change.
That is merely showing what rom base/software you are running, not firmware.
They are not one in the same thing.
Full rooted stock rom should be uploading shortly...

Ok, thanks for the clarification.
