The HTC One M8 in Europe has received the official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update with build version number 4.16.1540.8.

Just head-over at XDA-developer [djluisbento] original thread for further info about flashing RUU and restoring back your HTC One M8 to stock.  For rooting,  you need to install a custom recovery and the latest SuperSU.  A TWRP still worked, then flash the latest SuperSU so the root stick.

  1. Hi

    I have a problem with the RUU no matter where I download it from.
    When I try to open it in Windows, it says that the folder is invalid and it won’t let me open it or extract it.
    I also moved the file to the SD card but when I opened the phone in RUU mode, it didn’t recognize the file and it didn’t prompt me for anything.
    Is the file ok?


    1. The file is OK… to make sure please just head-over at XDA’s thread, there are some new links on newest update according to what carrier/CID your M8 is.

  2. You are my hero. I haven’t solved my problem, but at least now I know why it wasn’t working. I have been trying for two weeks to get my phone back to stock rom, but it refused to accept the RUU file. It was because I needed S-Off. I will just have to keep custom rom as I can’t see an easy way to get S-Off (firewater is no more it seems). Thanks for helping me understand!

  3. do you perhaps know where i can get the RUU for m8 HTC_622 4.18.708.12? i want to take cm12 off of the phone and put the stock standard android back on it.
