thank you for your reply.
ok, i was able to get the windows version of control bear but when i copy it to the kgs utility/tools folder and run the s-off part of the program i get a md5 mismatch or no file found error..
also the link to the rumrunner program gave a list of devices.. the sensation 4g was not in the list.. however i tried anyway as it is stated as being a 'universal' program.. but it wants me to be in android with usb debugging enabled.. i cannot get into android . it just shows the status bar.. nothing else..i can however get into hboot and use fastboot usb
EDIT::: I ran rumrunner from android where it was showing just the status bar.. i thought maybe usb debugging would still be selected (since i couldn't get to it) .. and it was apparently because the program worked, and i am now in hboot with s-off.. so rumrunner was the cure all.. and the simplest..
now, apparently my recovery is still just twrp.. how can i go about flashing clockwork or preferrably, 4ext (i have both of the img files for these on my hdd), so that i can flash ordroid rom
EDIT::: I was able to get 4ext properly flashed with kgs utility at this point. i was also able to update my firmware to 3.33 from 3.32. i was not able to install OrDroid 50 (1 gig?) with 4ext. I get: E: Can't open /sdcard/OrdDroid_50.1.0.zip (bad) Installation aborted. No idea why. I ran the fix permissions and the check file system and formatted the sdcard and toggled usb storage (in 4ext) and recopied ordroid.. no change. do i need to put the sdcard in a micro card reader and copy it that way?
EDIT::: I removed the sdcard and copied the rom via an sdcard reader.. same result.. i also tried the latest cyanogen 11 rom.. it didn't work either.. not sure what to do next any help would be appreciated.
