    Question HTC ONE X Unrooting to install OTA Update

    hi
    guys let me introduce myself first
    My name is Russ im from the philippines
    my first phone was iphone 4s then Lumia (which i somewhat regret) now i have swapped it for an HTC ONE X

    Now my problem is, an OTA update popped out of my screen and i have already downloaded it
    my phone restarted then " team win recovery project " started.

    I have no idea what im supposed to do but i clicked install anyways
    Which gave me an error "error file zip extraction" or something similar to that
    So i just did a reboot

    After that i checked if my phone is rooted using Root Checker
    I got a message that says " Sorry! this device does not have a proper root access " which i assumed that my phone is actually not rooted.

    Now the real question is, What is the problem? why cant i install OTA Update

    Im a " Noob " when it comes to this kind of stuffs so please no Acronyms!

    Thanks guys!

    EDIT (Additional informations)
    i checked if this phone has a custom rom installed (as i googled stuffs about android)
    Settings > About>Software Information
    Android Version 4.0.4
    HTC sense 4.1
    Software number 2.17.707.3

    So i assume i have a stock rom?

    another one is i hold volume down+power button
    This info showed up

    ***unlocked***
    endeavoru pvt ship S-ON RL
    HBOOT- 1.12.0000
    CPLD-none
    Microp-none
    Radio-2.1204.135.20
    Emmc-bootmode:disabled
    cpu bootmode: disabled
    HW secure boot:enabled
    modem path:off

    Hope these added information will help you guys to "help" me
    You guys might see as another person who just asks for help without researching. .
    Actually, i did "tried" to search for solution, its just that, i dont know What to actually search for
    I am lost and i dont know the right direction. Maybe people here can help me.

    I thank you in advance!

    EDIT: Just found out what CID is for
    MY Phone's CID is HTC_044
    ro.carrier is: HTC - Asia-SEA-WWE

    EDIT:
    I have a feeling that my rom is actually in its "stock" form and doesnt need flashing
    what my real problem re-locking the bootloader and removing "Team win recovery project"
    Please do correct if what i think is actually wrong, thank you!

    If you have Team Win Recovery on your phone, then despite what the root checker app said... you are at least customized, if not rooted. Team Win is a custom recovery, and even if everything else was as it should be, that would stop a carrier OTA.

    To properly decide how you should best proceed, you need to know what you have. If you go into the ABOUT PHONE section in your settings, what does it say for-
    Android Version-
    Build Number (first 3 digits are all the matters, eg 3.18, etc)-

    For most of us here, the most recent software is ATT RUU for 3.18 software here-


    If your phone is a former ATT phone, running the software above will return your phone to stock at the latest released software, including getting rid of TWRP (and wiping you SD card too probably, so copy everything off first). If the OTA you are trying to install says 3.18 in it... then you can probably download and run the above. If it is trying to install something with 5.xx, then don't try it. There is a different RUU for you out there somewhere.

    by ATT i assume its AT&T carrier am i right? and i should find a logo of AT&T on the handset. . which i dont see on my phone. so maybe its the international version?
    Android version is 4.0.4
    Build number is 2.17

    Yes i would love to go back to Pure stock in everything (rom,recovery)
    The OTA software update says 3.14 (364.56 mb)

    I gladly appreciate your response! i am glad, i hope you can help me further as i lack knowledge on this kind of stuffs, thank you very much!

    We need to be careful here, as I think you have the international version of the phone (codename Endeavour) whereas I have the Evita.

    I think this story here-


    Has what you need- I THINK. There is a link to the RUU for 3.14xxxx just under the story. I suspect you do not know how to do the fastboot portion to verify your model, which is why you need to be careful . Assuming this is the right one, and you run it and it works, that SHOULD put you back on the stock path to properly accept OTA going forward. If the OTA update it is trying to install has more decimal places, and those match the above link properly as well, that would help me feel more confident about being right.

    Just to verify, running an RUU will wipe your phone, and your SD card as well (if you are not S-OFF). Be prepared to start from scratch, and copy all your pics and music off first.

    Its okay i have nothing in my phone at the moment
    Thank you for your assistance, as i read the article you linked me, i searched some terms and Just found out what CID is for

    MY Phone's CID is HTC_044
    ro.carrier is: HTC - Asia-SEA-WWE

    Hope those added information could help us both, i dont think the article you linked to me would be compatible with my device as mine is from ASIA-SEA-WWE
    and the one you linked me is from europe

    i would still want to thank you for your time and effort of helping me, i think i am heading to the right direction, i still need further assistance, so if you or anybody else reading this could help me, I would be so grateful

    EDIT:
    I have a feeling that my rom is actually in its "stock" form and doesnt need flashing
    what my real problem is re-locking the bootloader and removing "Team win recovery project"
    Please do correct if what i think is actually wrong, thank you!

    You need to flash the specific RUU for your region. Please be careful to not flash the wrong RUU as it will brick your phone. But instead of flashing an RUU, why don't you just flash a newer custom rom in TWRP?

    Could you explain what you did before it got stuck? Please provide as much info as possible.

    Found THE perfect link-


    Go past the first Asia, there is a SEA a couple more down. Looks like you want the 1.29. You are actually fine with it there at the bootloader screen with the RUU I think.

    EDIT- To clarify, nobody on ATT should use ANY of these files. This is not for your phone, but for one that looks exactly like it.

    My laptop detected my htc one x so i tried to relock my phone using Fastboot
    all i did was Fastboot oem lock
    I read somewhere that it is required to install RUU . .

    Now i downloaded the RUU but doesnt open on my Pc . . I clicked it a couple of times nothing happens,
    On my laptop it gives me an error before i can actually open it (error -5001) something like that failed to open make sure to close program. ( i did not clicked twice, i only clicked once {run as admin})

    Forget about the ruu for now. You might be able to unlock the phone again, but you need a unlock_code.bin

    To get this, go to fastboot mode.

    Get the token id by using the "fastboot oem get_identifier_token"

    Copy the token and submit it on htcdev

    You might be able to make this work, but if it does not unlock again, you can just go with the RUU I guess.
