Restore HTC One XL (Evita) to Stock.

I finally decided to sell my HTC One XL and I need to restore it to stock. If you follow my previous post to unlock bootloader then this information is helpful to you.

CID Getter did not work for me so I had to get CID using ADB.
adb reboot-bootloader
fastboot oem readcid

Having unlocked Bootloader I thought it would be easy to flash stock ROM, but I was wrong. The biggest issue is S-Off if you have SuperCID 11111111. When you try to flash Stock RUU it fails for two reason your bootloader is unlocked and S-ON. If you try to flash CyanogenMOD 10.1.3 it fails because HBoot version is too old, if I am correct you need HBoot version 2.14 for CyanogenMOD 10.1.3.

Please make sure you setup HTC USB driver and Android SDK.

To flash Stock RUU you need to do S-Off first using this link.

Note: Don't flash Stock RUU with SuperCID and S-ON it might brick your device. Please read the entire post above carefully before proceeding.

Download the Stock RUU 3.18 from here.

Connect your phone to your computer and follow the steps on RUU.
