    Hello,
    I own a European HTC M8, it is rooted and has a custom recovery installed. To update I flashed the stock recovery, downloaded and installed the update but the phone became stuck at the HTC one screen. I have also tried flashing the new firmware but that didn't update the software at all. I'm also a bit confused because with the getvar all command it says my version-main is 4.16.401.13, but in software information in phone setting it says I'm on version 4.16.401.10. I'm not really sure what I should do to update my phone and because the version number is relatively high (new) it's difficult to find firmware or RUU's. So my question is how to install the stagefright update (I don't care about keeping the data on the device, I'm open to a full stock restore).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Unroot. Flash your specific RUU file, get it from HTC site. Update.

    I would, but HTC doesn't provide RUUs for the European version and I haven't found the RUU for my current version anywhere else on the internet.

    Not true. Htc provides all the original rom there are, you were searching on the wrong place. Search here http://www.htcdev.com/devcenter/downloads/P00

    You have the international M8 and im pretty sure you can use the unlocked/developer RUU
    And about your software and firmware versions, they will never be the same as the software is the OS and the firmware is for the hardware of the phone

    Look at this post It has a RUU..http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...401-6-t2899900

    Install the 10 and they update to 13 (it's just some small stagefright security updates)

    That link only has the original rom for phones sold in the United States. The one I provided has all, from every country is the world.

    Thank you for clarifying the software numbers. Are you sure about the developer RUU, because the software numbers are completely different and I don't want to mess up my phone.

    If the only thing that changes are the 2 last numbers, yes. But search on xda if you want

    Without being s-off you can not use a RUU version older then what you are currently on

    Yea, I thought so. I guess I'll have to wait for the new RUU.

    Why not install TWRP and flash the latest stock rooted rom

    I can't flash roms because I'm not s-off. I have tried nandroid backups but there always seems to be something wrong. Corrupted file md5 mismatch...

    I thought you had to be s-off to flash roms. Or is it different with stock roms ?

    you dont have to be s-off to flash roms for the CID of your phone, only for different CIDs or if you want to change the radio. Again, I am not the person to teach you, do as I did, search the XDA forum

    Thanks, I didn't know that. Will try to find a stock rom for my cid.
