Note that HTC firmware (RUU) are mostly available in two formats: EXE AND ZIP. For installing RUU EXE file, see method 2 below, while for RUU ZIP file, see method 1.
++++++++++++++++ IF NOT RUU EXE FILE +++++++++++++++++++++++
Step 1: Download the firmware file in ZIP format for your HTC device and save it on PC. For ease, rename this file to rom.zip (be sure to rename).
Step 2: Download ADB and Fastboot drivers. Extract this zip file into a new folder. Let’s call it adb folder for the purpose of this guide. You must have htc_fastboot file in this folder.
Step 3: Boot your HTC device into Fastboot mode (or Download mode, for newer HTC devices).
Step 4: Connect your device to the PC using a USB cable. Make sure you have installed HTC drivers. In case your PC fails to recognize or detect your HTC device, then you need to install or re-install HTC drivers. Connect using USB cable again thereafter. Doing a PC restart is a good thing too after installing drivers.
Step 5: Once the device is properly recognized on the PC, open a command window inside the folder where your RUU .zip is saved. For this, simply double click on the command prompt file in your adb folder.
Step 6: Now bring the device into RUU mode. Issue the following command in the command window:
Step 7: Now flash the RUU ZIP file with the command given below (you can copy paste):
Step 8: Let the ROM install now. Most likely, you will get an error at the end of the installation. It’s normal to get such error. It could be: “pre-hboot update: please flush immediately”. Do this. You have to be in RUU mode (see step 6 above), and then re-flash the ROM ZIP file again (see step 7 above).
Step 9: This time installation will complete and your device will have the firmware installed. Once it’s done your HTC will automatically reboot.
==================== How to Install RUU EXE File ==================================
Step 1: Download the firmware in EXE format for your HTC device on your PC (that's zipped for convenience).
Step 2: Connect your device to your PC using a USB cable. Make sure before this step tat the device has more than 50% battery.
Step 3: If the device is not recognized by the PC, ensure you have HTC Drivers installed and then disconnect and reconnect the device from the USB cable.
Step 4: Once the device is properly recognized on the PC, browse to the HTC ROM that you downloaded. Double-click on the file to launch the installation wizard.
Step 5: Follow all of the on-screen instructions shown on your PC.
Step 6: Once the installation is complete, click Finish in the Wizard and the device will reboot.
That’s it. Let your HTC device reboot fully, and then your device will all back to factory state, all issues fixed, in back to stock condition.
Note: If you run into any issue under the above method, like HTC’s update wizard failing to recognize your device, then close the wizard window, and try the same thing after booting your device into fastboot mode (could be download mode for newer HTC devices).
