    Are you s-off? if so you can flash this firmware package HERE and you have 2 choices. The full firmware package or the one w/o hboot, boot img and recovery.
    If you are s-on you will need to relock the bootloader and use the RUU thats in the same post and hope the bootloader isn't locked down until another exploit is found to root

    You can flash my stock rooted rom based off the new OTA found HERE as the radio is the same one we have now.
    I will also post the stock rooted HERE

    I think you're saying that accepting the OTA on the phone is not an option at all if rooted.
    My (rooted) phone is showing "System update is available. Tap to download the system update" but I risk losing root and not being able to get it back if I download the update, right?

    You need the stock recovery and software for the OTA to take. So no the OTA will not work with your setup

    I was under the impression the minimum required to get the phone to OTA update is to restore the stock bootloader ([RECOVERY] Stock AT&T recovery image (m7) - xda-developers).

    Is also necessary to lock the bootloader?

    Beyond that, is it also necessary to run the stock RUU? If so, where can I find the an RUU for developer edition? I can't seem to locate it on [COLLECTION][GUIDE] HTC M7 RUU, OTA, and Stock Nandroid Downloads - xda-developers, and the filters on HTCdev - HTC Kernel Source Code and Binaries aren't working for me for some reason.



    (currently running a stock ROM (4.1.2/1.29.1540.3), rooted, twrp, s-on)

    Beings you are s-off you can flash just the firmware package without losing anything. Then you can flash a rom if you choose to do so

    After putting it on your sdcard reboot into the bootloader, hboot will find the zip parse it and ask if you want to update. No need for a command prompt using the 0P6BIMG

    If you rename it to firmware thats when you need to use fastboot and the sdk folder. Its 2 different ways of doing itand you are getting confused and combining both ways. Like i said just put the 0P6BIMG on the external sdcard boot into the bootloader and make sure you have Hboot selected

    Get into fastboot usb mode in the bootloader. In the cmd prompt type this "fastboot oem getvar all" and post it here. Make sure you remove your IMEI, MEID.Phone #

    You are looking at the software version. if you look at the Baseband it shoud be 1.05.20.0321_2. The software version changes with the rom

    I have a folder right on my desktop for adb/fastboot with windows 7 you can hold down shift key right click the folder and then open command window from here. When you rename the zip are you adding .zip? if you are then it would be firmware.zip.zip. If you are getting a bootloop then you need to flash superuser in recovery and that should take care of if. You can rename the zip to anything as long as you enter it right in the cmd.

    Here is the superuser zip...SuperSU Download

    I know this is an old thread but am looking for help with flashing an OTA with my Sprint HTC One m7. It is the stagefright update that includes other items. I realize the stagefright update part is not that important but it is so as much that without getting it the phone will not be ready for further updates down the road. My Sprint HTC One m7 is new, never been activated and has a new SIM card in it. It came with Lollipop 5.0.2, Sense 6.0, Software version 6.23.651.7, HTC SDK API level 6.55. Bootloader is unlocked via HTCDev site (currently relocked), rooted with TWRP & Chainfire's SuperSU (currently unrooted), and s-off with sunshine. Relocked bootloader, which took it back to stock recovery, and run the stock RUU off HTC's website but still get an error "unexpected content in Bluetooth.apk" which stops the update from installing. Tried 3 times, completely reloading RUU. Since I am s-off, should be able to flash this OTA, right?
    Thanks,

    You can flash this latest RUU as it includes all the updates and you'll be up to date.

    Is this RUU for the U.S.A.? And is it a stock version? I still want to continue getting OTA's, its just for some reason this one kept getting an "unkown contents in Bluetooth.apk" error and would not install.

    If you take the latest Ota, that hboot you'll need to pay for the exploit for soff. If you don't care about the soff, no worries. Latest moonshine/rumrunner doesn't work. You need to use sunshine for $25.

    Just a FYI if you want to get nerdy with your phone.
