Those of you who are stuck in an annoying, unending, and even terrifying bootloop know the value of an RUU. The same goes for those of you who have somehow completely messed up your kernel, radios, or system files, making your phone incredibly unstable and borderline useless. That’s why I’m very happy to announce that the full Jelly Bean RUU update to 3.15.651.16 is now available to download for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
To recap for those of you who might not know, the full RUU is an executable file that you have to run on your computer, while your phone is connected. It will return your phone to a completely stock experience in every regard: radios, kernel, ROM, and yes, even the bootloader. But as we just mentioned earlier today, those of you who have bootloaders prior to 2.09 might want to hold off on this for now. However, if you find yourself in a pinch and just need a working phone ASAP, you might not have another choice.
So far, I’ve found the two download links below. If you know of other mirrors, be sure to share them in the comments. And as a reminder, you will need to relock your bootloader at HTCdev before running the RUU, in case you haven’t already done that.[FileFactory | HTC RUU]
