Well you only want to use a toro cwm... but I think that.zip you're referring to is designed to install whichever gnex system you're restoring... so as long you put in the system.IMG from the factory image for our phones then you should be okay...
Download the appropriate ODIN.tar files on your phone (PDA files only for CDMA users).
DO NOT use odin files designed for another device.
Download and install Mobile Odin.
Use Mobile Odin to open the .tar file you just downloaded and return to stock.
You should be back to stock and with a locked bootloader!
*NOTE* I have not personally tested this method. I've dotted my i's and crossed my t's as far as I know.
However, if this didn't work for you: Feel free to PM me as I have another more-complex method that I have up my sleeve.
A few users have reported this working!
If you're currently freaking out thinking you're even MORE stuck with a locked bootloader and your rooted system:
Download THIS file and put it on the root of your SD card.
Run these commands into Terminal Emulator:
THANKS THANKS THANKS! This works, is this part of one of the stickied guides at the top? it should be, I searched my problem (malfunctioning usb port) and found it and it worked pretty painlessly. BRAVO. Hope that other dude got it worked out.
This is an old thread, but was hoping to get some help.
I have an HTC one M8 and trying to return it to Stock without USB Access. I am rooted and using the Philz recovery. I am trying to LOCK the bootloader. My attempt to update the ROM fails, and from all I have read, I am missing the step to lock the bootloader.
The links to param.zip (param.unlock and param.lock) in this post are broken. Can you help point me to param.zip?
