    When you unlock your bootloader using HTCDev, it wipes /data. For some reason, apps such as Calculator are in the /data folder.

    Also, even if you never root, since unlocking wipes /data, you cannot accept an OTA update. The OTA update requires that your /data folder have all of the stock files in it in order to update (it compares md5 sums).

    Thus, I am in the situation of having unlocked via HTCDev, but I have not rooted or flashed a custom recovery, but I nevertheless cannot accept the recent AT&T OTA update because my /data folder was wiped.

    Could somebody who has a stock AT&T One Mini please upload your /data folder so I can restore its contents to my phone and get the OTA?

    I already downloaded jmz's StockRooted_Odex_ATT file in the root section, but it does not have the /data folder. It only has /system.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If the Mini is like its big brother the HTC One then there are a few apps that are sacrificed when you unlock the bootloader using HTCDev.

    Calculator & Sound Recorder are two I know of. As far as I know you can't reinstall/sideload them back onto the device even if you did get the apks, they are blocked out.

    Really? If I had root couldn't I just put them back in /data and set permissions and be on my way?
