    No you can not. The phone might download a OTA but it will fail to install because it needs the stock recovery to install it

    Download and flash this zip in RUU mode. It's the stock firmware which includes stock recovery. You could also extract the stock recovery .img out of it and flash it from fastboot.

    Can I flash only the recovery and check for updates? If I flash the complete firmware, does exist the possibility if it becomes again sim locked?

    The firmware that you provided is the unlocked model as it is. This should not become sim locked either way. Once a phone is SIM unlocked it can't go back. And yes. I use 7-zip for extracting the recovery out of firmware.zips

    I thought it could get locked again, because it is not unlocked by code but with some method using root and custom recovery. Thank you very much for your help!

    No prob. Just make sure after you fastboot flash recovery.img that you fastboot erase cache to make sure no partitions get screwy. Just a precaution

    This is the all in one toolkit that I use on occasion. It works without flaw. And has a nice looking ui.

    I did that sometimes, just flash the recovery and I'm done? I want to get the update through ota I wouldn't like to install it manually.

    Yeah, flash the recovery and you're done. As long as you're on the stock kernel you should be able to receive your ota.

    Is it possible that my phone can become sim locked again? I guess the radio versions update too?

    Are you taking about bootloader or SIM? The bootloader is unlock on HTCdev.com and you're SIM,once unlocked, it can never go back to being locked. The only way to unlock your SIM is through the carrier of which you bought the phone through or by using sieempi website. So if you're phone does go back to SIM unlocked use this site and it will permanently SIM unlock your phone, no matter what you do to it.
