It doesnt seem to be working, I did a restore and everything but as of right now it isnt doing anything but sitting on the "HTC" screen. I have left it to do whatever it is doing for a good 2 hours although I know it should not take more than 30 mins at most.
Heres what happened. I first looked into rooting my phone due to some non-market apps not installing or saying "application not installed" when I tried too. I found kingo root and used that to root my phone AFTER I unlocked my bootloader. Then I decided to try a custom rom not too long after that. So I wiped my cache, system, dalvik cache, data, and factory reset my phone through the clockworkmod recovery area. So then I tried installing a different inspire rom although I cant remember what it was cause I deleted it entirely and dont remember which one I was trying. So now I am stuck with a broken phone and am trying to use my other working inspire to restore my broken one.
Its much easier. For HTC phones exist so called RUUs (rom upgrade utility). You need the right RUU for your phone model and CID (Carrier ID). First you need to be clear about which RUU you need.
1. Connect your phone in fastboot mode
2. Open commandline and type:
fastboot getvar all
Post all values but the "IMEI" here and i will get the right RUU for you.
No full RUU available for your firmware version. I found the firmware from matching OTA. Flash the firmware.zip (Just extract it from the OTA ) as followed:
- connect your device in fastboot open
-relock the bootloader ( fastboot oem lock)
- then open commandline and type:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip (If you get an error, just immediately repeat the command)
-once done you can unlock the bootlader again
-flash latest TWRP
-flash a rom of you choice from HERE can be stock or custom as you like
