    Unhappy OTA updates with unlocked bootloader and S-OFF?

    Hi,

    I was previously on a custom ROM (4.4.2 with Sense 6 HTC One M7) and just yesterday got back to Stock successfully. However, do I need to lock the bootloader and get the S-OFF to S-ON to receive OTA (I am in India and the phone was purchased here)?

    The status right now is:
    Bootloader: unlocked
    S-OFF

    I got the updates after switching to stock till 4.2.2, but it stopped there.

    Really appreciate your help! Thanks :-)

    No, you don't have to go back to S-ON, however I believe you'd need to relock the bootloader in order to be able to perform OTA updates.

    Hi,

    Yes, I had to finally root the phone again, lock the bootloader (left the S as S-OFF) and then got back on stock RUU. And it worked!

    Finally on 4.4.2 with Sense 6 :-)

    Thanks for your time!
