Nearly a couple weeks ago, the Jelly Bean (4.1.1) update to the Evo 4G LTE XL BBQ began to roll out. By now, we think it's safe to say that most or all of you have it. If you don't, however, or if you've already updated, flashed another ROM, and want to get back to stock, then maybe I can interest you in a nice RUU?

As a side note, if you're HTCDev unlocked, you'll need to relock your handset or you'll get an error while trying to run the .exe. More information on relocking the bootloader can be found here. Some threads are also saying that you need stock recovery to get this RUU to work, however our own Artem was able to pull it off using TWRP.

The dark orange one.

That should be about it. Have fun flashing!

    What are you talking about? It goes to Jewel, which is the EVO LTE. EVO 3D is Shooter.

    Lots of members are flashing this RUU and its NOT upgrading the ROM! Its only upgrading the HBOOT to 2.09 and everything else stays the same. Check out XDA folks.
