    The version 3.0.0 doesn’t installs. It’s going to recovery after each reboot

    • Daniel Nicolosi

      I’m having the exact same problem. I wiped again and reinstalled and still boots to recovery.

      • Piotr Dąbrowski

        Did you do it with new firmware like he said??

        • Daniel Nicolosi

          No because I have the E8 Chinese version, I misread the ROM name. 🙁

    • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

      Have you tried to copy the rom to your SD CARD and then to install it through TWRP? it works.. the only problem is what i mentioned below

    I think that the problem in the kernel

  • Daniel Nicolosi

    3.0.0 goes to recovery on reboot. I wiped all and tried again, and still boots into recovery.

    • Юрий Шугай

      As I know LlabTooFeR makes ROMs, only for European versions because he didn’t have Chinese phones and can’t test ROMs for that models

  • Юрий Шугай

    After few hours LlabTooFeR has uploaded new version of Maximus for HTC M8 Dual Sim (DUGL) approximately at 0:30 (by GMT+2). And everything works perfect. Especially energy saving. And that means that all those who wrote about the error after me, did something wrong.

    systemui crashes on m8 dugl , tried alot of times

  • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

    someone has a tutorial on how to proceed with the ROM and FIRMWARE?

    • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

      Hi there, for firmware

      1. you need to have adb/fastboot installed to run from your command prompt and drivers for htc one m8 DUGL installed, if you use HTC sync, there is already there
      2. download latest firmware from here 4.30.401.15

      3. then you can put your phone in fastboot mode, first turn off and then power button + vol down then enter into fastboot by clicking the power button

      4. then using command prompt:

      fastboot oem rebootRUU

      then:

      fastboot flash zip (should be directory where it is)firmware_4.30.401.15.zip

      wait for the process to be completed. Sometimes flashing firmware
      once doesn’t work, so flash firmware_4.30.401.15.zip again using the same command.

      then finally

      fastboot reboot

      NOW FOR ROM,

      you need to have a recovery TWRP installed (i found it more easy);

      1) copy the rom to your SD card in root directory

      2) Enter phone in recovery mode

      3) wipe advanced using twrp

      4) install select SD card and just follow the steps

      Cheers

      • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

        I installed that version 3.0.0 and my device does not save image anyway

      • Markus

        Hi Mahomed, you say “wipe advanced using twrp” but there I have a lot of options on what to wipe – so what partition(s) should I chose?
        thanks

  • Joey

    Hi, I have MaximusHD 2.0.0, which “advertised” OTA-updates. Therefore I expected that I can install lollipop via OTA-update. When I search for updates, after some seconds of searching it doesn´t find any updates. Does OTA update work? Does OTA work via WLAN or only via the mobile data connection? What else could be wrong? Any help welcome!
    Thanks in advance, best regards, Joey

    • LlabTooFeR

      It does work, but since this is pretty major release and dirty flashing without proper firmware may lead to unexpected issues, I decided not to push OTA update.

  • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

    Dear All, i have done everything and it works perfect, only 2 major problems, wifi not working and eerytime it reboots it keeps rebooting and i need to factory reset through fastboot.. any ideas? thanks

    • LlabTooFeR

      Make sure you updated firmware.

      • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

        Yes i did, actually initially it was not accepting due to CID difference and i changed to super CID and flashed using fastboot and re installed the ROM, but still no luck with wifi.. and everytime i restart it keeps restarting in loop.. any suggestions?

        • LlabTooFeR

          You mentioned you have to change CID. Is your device M8_DUGL?

          • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

            Yes it is.. M8_DUGL rooted, Bootloader unlocked, S-OFF

          • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

            Problemas solved it was my fault I flashed again the firmware in RUU mode and everything smooth and fine. Thanks once again! Great job there!!!!

          • Alam Eldin A.hamid

            how did you flash firmware in ruu ??

          • Mahomed Riaz Mobaracaly

          • Alam Eldin A.hamid

            thanks bro…
            I did like what you say but no luck and now i`m faceing the same problem as you which is when I restart it keeps restarting in loop, and no WiFi. The only deference between or devices is I didn’t change the CID yet . So do I have to change it
            Because mine is unlocked & s-off.

          • Alam Eldin A.hamid

            okay
            i changed the CID to supercid and flash the firmware again and every thing run smoothly up till now
            many thanx bro

        hello LlabTooFeR, I have the dual model m8 yes installed maximus HD 3.0.0, I want to install the maximus hd 3.0.0 …. help me?

  • Ondřej Obracaník

    Hi, I tried 3.0.0, but it doesn’t boot. It stop on green HTC logo with red text from unlocking. Previous version boot fine. Also firmware is installed recomended one from HTC OTA and as I’m S-OFF I tried also install the one linked from this post.

    • Ondřej Obracaník

      Is possible to get some log data when it doesn’t boot? Can it help? Only 2.0.0 is working for me, even if I installed latest firmware over RUU

      • Ondřej Obracaník

        When I changed CID to SuperCID than I was able to flash version 3.0.0 and it is running well.

  • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

    I installed that version 3.0.0 and my device does not save image anyway

  • Jakub Rášo

    Hi, I have problem wit battery life in Maximus HD 3. In Maximus HD 2, everything work perfect with batery life more than 1 day – when i use mobile phone normally in work and at home, but after reinstall to HD3 battery going down ofter 1/2 of day. And programs what i using are the same. Any ideas?

  • Piotr Dąbrowski

    Great job!!!! Really!!!, but have a one question. Is it possible you do GPE for HTC ONE M8 DUAL SIM?

  • Markus

    Hi, I flashed the firmware_4.30.401.15 but gut stuck into boot Screen. I don’t even know anymore what I tried, but I can’t seem to get it back working. When I enter bootloader it says FW 4.30.401.15 but that’s all. Please help! Thank you in advance

    • Markus

      Done. I had to set bootloader to “unlock” in order to install TWRP and after that I managed to install Maximus HD3.0.0. But now, when it starts I get the messages “unfortunately HTC Dot View has stopped” and “unfortunately the System UI has stopped” and nothing goes. Anyone encountered this? Anyone hax an idea on how to fix it?

      • Me,here,now

        I have exactly the same problem. I restored a Nandroid backup from a couple of days ago today and now the phone is pretty much useless. I can’t tell if it is locked or not, nor can I restart it with the power button.Anyone know where I can get the Official HTC RUU so that I can try to fix this mess?

        • Heiko

          You need to do a Full Wipe on TWRP in recovery mode (all data from the internal storage will be deleted and a previous backup is highly recommended) and then everything is smooth, i had the same problem.

          • Me,here,now

            The Nandroid backup didn’t work for me and I did a full wipe as I always do before flashing the ROM. I was fortunate enough to find a vanilla KitKat TWRP backup for my device on the internet, I was able to back up and running with this.

  • Miroslav Baka

    How it is with battery? Phone turned off at 23:00 with battery at 100%. Next morning at 7:00 I have 95%. Where is 5%?

  • DatJoe

    Works when the HTC is S-On?

  • Ondřej Obracaník

    Maximus, are you planning to build 5.1 or only ROMs based on released version oficialy by HTC?

    Thanks
    Ondrej

  • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

    how do I install the firmware?

    • Юрий Шугай

      If your device S-On you need to relock bootloader or you’ll get “error 99” (step 10)

      Modified instruction:
      1. Download and run lates fastboot&adb tools package: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48915118
      2. Copy firmware (.zip) package to c:adb and rename it to “firmware.zip”
      3. Connect your device to the PC
      4. Boot your device in fastboot mode (vol down + power ===> fastboot)
      5. Remember version of HBOOT
      6. Open a command prompt on the PC (cmd.exe), type and confirm each command with ENTER (from 6 to 11):
      7. cd /d c:adb
      8. fastboot devices
      *the result must be something like that:
      List of devices attached
      HT46KWM04497 device

      9. fastboot getvar all
      *open android-info.txt inside firmware.zip and check if MID and CID matches

      10. fastboot oem lock
      *relocking bootloader

      11. fastboot oem rebootRUU
      *rebooting phone to RUU-flash mode

      12. fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
      *flashing firmware. wait from 5 to 15 minutes for process to be finished. You’ll get the error «FAILED (remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately)» Don’t panic it is normal. Flash firmware again

      13. fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
      *now it must be comleted without errors. if not – try reflash it again

      14. fastboot reboot-bootloader
      And check version of HBOOT it mast be higher

      Now you need to unlock bootloader. Like you do first time, but you dont need to get Unlock_code.bin from htcdev.com it must be on your e-mail.
      After you’ve unlock bootloader you need to flash custom recovery. Download latest version from here: https://dl.twrp.me/m8/
      And flash it: fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.7.0-m8.img
      Now go to recovery and flash maximus :)))

      • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

        thanks for listening.
        for this process, the device must be in s-on mode or s-off?
        my is in s-on!

        • Юрий Шугай

          It could be S-on. Doesn’t metter. If S-On you need to relock bootloader or you’ll get “error 99”
          Before you execute “fastboot oem rebootRUU” You have to execute: “fastboot oem lock”.
          I’ve modified instruction. Please read my previous post.

          • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

            hello friend … thanks for helping continue.
            with their help managed to install the firmware, but soon after installing it got white screen, unfortunately is not installed TWRP
            You have some opnion?

          • Юрий Шугай

            That because you don’t have Lollipop installed
            Now go to bootloader (PwrBtn+VolDown), unlock it and install TWRP, than go to recovery (TWRP) and install maximus:
            Now you need to unlock bootloader. Like you do first time, but you dont need to get Unlock_code.bin from htcdev.com it must be on your e-mail.
            Save Unlock_code.bin to the folder with fastboot.exe and execute command:
            fastboot flash unlocktoken unlock_code.bin
            You’ll see message «The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny» With Volume keys chose “Yes” and press PwrBtn
            After you’ve unlocked bootloader you need to flash custom recovery. Download latest version from here: https://dl.twrp.me/m8/ to the fastboot folder. And flash it:
            fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.7.0-m8.img
            Now go to recovery and flash maximus :)))

          • Cleudir balieiro de negreiros

    Hi All… and many thanks to LlabTooFeR for continuing to support the M8 DualSim. Its taken me a while to get around to installing but all seems to have gone well – new firmware and new Rom flashed with no real drama.
    So – now it seems that all I’m missing is an exchange security mod. Does anyone know of one thats working with version 3.0 ?
    Any help or sugestions appreciated.
    🙂

    But when I install any Rom the device reboot in the boot loader page !! Why ? What can I do !!

    • jMurr

      When install firmware u have to flash it twice!!! Look here for my comment with instructions

  • Heiko

    It should also be mentioned that if you unlocked your phone, upgraded the firmware and installed the latest TWRP and after that the maximus rom and you reboot then -> the HTC Logo with red writing appears and right after that the HTC Logo without red writing and then it takes 30-50 seconds until system shows you “Android is upgrading” and then it boots normal into the system.

  • Hitchhiker

    It’s a great ROM – Works like a charm. Thank you!

  • JoostA

    Couple of weeks running the new ROM. No problems whatsoever (thanx jMurr.. !). To LLabtoofer a request. I have got 2 One m8’s. However the dual sim version lacks the cell broadcast menu entirely (settings–> call –> cell broadcast). HTC UK on Twitter referred me to the Duch HTC (the phone was bought in the UK though, not Holland…). Neither had a proper solution. I guess it is a stupied bug they don’t care about. However, because of the fact the CB is used in the EU to send emergency messages I don’t like their lack of responsiveness at all

    first of all Thanks > i have problem with camera after install this rom >> camera open ok but when i take picture this message is show ((unable to save to sd card)) and do not save photo

  • JoostA

    An update on my earlier message regarding the fact that our M8 dual SIM
    version lacks a cell broadcast menu (unlike the single sim version of
    the M8). I was called on that by HTC Netherlands and explaining on my
    behalf that Rolls Royces are sld including everything, I was promised
    the lacking feature would be brought to the attention of HTC Taiwan. I
    guess from a European point of view that is al they can do at the
    moment. I hope HTC Taiwan fixes this problem (which is not native t dual
    sim phones) . It is not correct that the EU-alert cell broadcast
    channels are activated standard in the dual sim version (not in mine
    anyway, let alone that I think this is impossible). If it were true, no
    one would have a chance to “opt out”, That too would not be nice.

  • Markus

    Did anyone manage to use his/her HTC M8 Dual Sim as a mass storage device? I mean, I want to be able to write directly into office files on the HTC. I know this isn’t possible anymore since Android 4.2.2 if I recall it right, but having the phone rooted maybe there is a way to retrieve that very useful functionality. Thank you in advance for any hint.

    • jMurr

      No it’s google point – only MTP
      But what’s the problem to read and write files?

      • Markus

        No problem to read them, but to write directly into them. I use a lot of editing files that I carry on the HTC (because it has a lot of space) from any computer I connect the phone to. It takes a lot of time to search the file, transfer it to the computer, edit it there, save it there, transfer it back, in order to keep mobility. Cloud services are a no go especially in corporate environment. I simply can’t understand why Google doesn’t say: ok, files with specific endings should be editable directly on the phones external memory. You agree this is a detour unworthy the times we live in (and the money we spend for those devices)?!

  • Guss

    Hi, first of all I want to thank you for the stagefright security patch, which I could download today. Unfortunately it dosn’t work on my phone. It gets stuck in system recovery:

    Finding update package…
    Opening update package…
    Verifying update package…
    E:failed to verify whole-file signature
    E:signature verifying failed
    Installation aborted.

    Luckily I can reboot and the phone starts again. But I’m still on MaximusHD 3.0.0

    • jMurr

      1. When android started move somewhere Update file.
      2. Boot to recovery.
      3. Turn off signature verification.
      4. Reboot into android.
      5. Move Update file back.
      6. Boot to recovery.
      voilà
      Maximus HD 3.0.1

            There is another custom ROM near to stock based on Android 6 MM
            https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24459283995302340
            I think that it is very good, try it

          • Tarek Spelta

            I have tried all ROM possible but every time the same error message appear, according to you it’s due to the fact that I haven’t unlock the bootloader ?

          • jMurr

            Go to the Settings and unchek this option.

          • Tarek Spelta

            How can I enter in these settings ? When I press power+volume down I only get the ” classic ” menu : fastboot,factory reset, recovery…

          • jMurr

            What are we talking about?
            About flashing ROM or update through recovery:
            “2. Boot to recovery.”
            So why are you trying to do anything through bootloader?!

          • Tarek Spelta

            Well, in february HTC delivered his upgrade android 6.0 to htc on m8 users and I don’t know how or why but this upgrade make the phone instable, it crash and show the message ” sense has stopped to work ” , ” google play services has stopped to work”. So that’s why I’m trying to ” erase ” sense 7 and put any OS. The fact is that I can’t open the phone and so access to the settings and I don’t to want to send it to HTC wait 1 month and pay 150-200€ for a problem that is not my fault, so have you a solution or something that can fixe this problem ?

            Thank you for your attention

    Hi everyone, I installed Maximus HD 3.0.0 some time ago. Now the OTA update doesn’t work with the following error message (translated): “Telephone memory is not available to store software-updates, because it is connected in read-only mode. You can restart the system and search for updates under seetings, info.” Can somebody tell me how to fix that? The message about the read-only mode can’t be true, because other applications write to the device memory. Any clue, any help?
