So, I recently got an HTC Desire S with H-Boot version 2.00.0002 and thus I could not use Revolutionary Tool to root it. The alternative to HTCDev unlock would be to use RUUs to downgrade the H-Boot but I could not figure out which RUU to select in the list at shipped-roms. Thus I HTC Dev unlocked it thinking that the only problem would be having to flash the boot.img of the rom I install separately.

But when I flashed Cyanogen Mod 10 and flashed the file, the rom worked. I had to restart it but i found that no matter what rom i install, the phone always boots to the recovery! I tried it with multiple roms includind the Xperia rom, and roms based on CM. Then I tried the Virtuous rom with the same result. Then I tried the Saga3d rom and it rebooted sucessfully!!!

Thinking the problem was solved, I flashed the CM 10 JB rom I wanted again but it once again booted to recovery when I rebooted it. Seems like the only way I can make them reeboot is to flash the boot.img file again and again! A thread suggested flashing 4ext recovery but the same thing happened. I even tried to reflash the Saga3d rom but it didn't reboot this time!!!

So after careful but failed research, i created this question. Can anyone help me? I think a new RUU with an earlier (0.9*) H-Boot would help but I don't know how to pick one!!! I'll post some pics and hope anyone will suggest me an RUU or other solution.


(P.S I'm using a custom rom right now (reaper) cuz I don't know how to find the stock)

Thanks for the response but the problem is I don't know which one of these RUUs to select. I can't seem to find where to look for what are their supported cidnums, or build number, or software number. Thats why I hoped a pro would help me select one. My cidnum is HTC_001.

Thanks again.
