Default [Info] After Revolutionary: install Clockworkmod, root & more

To install Clockworkmod after Revolutionary
  1. Get fastboot and adb tool for windows here:
  2. Get Fastboot and adb for linux here:
  3. Obtain clockworkmod recovery:
  4. Move the recovery.img above to the same directory/folder/map as fastboot and navigate there with an open cmd prompt (WIN) or terminal (LINUX).
  5. Put the phone is Fastboot USB mode (HINT: Android is not up and running - access it from your hboot screen - see how below)
  6. fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img <<< from a command line (use root for Linux- sudo ./fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img)

Clockworkmod includes a backup utility (also known as nandroid backups).

It's a good idea to do backups before installing new roms or modifying a current one.



To do backups:
  1. Start clockworkmod recovery (instructions below)
  2. Select backup and restore
  3. Select backup

To restore a backup:
  1. Start clockworkmod recovery (instructions below)
  2. Select backup and restore
  3. Select backup

To root:
  1. Copy su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip to your sdcard root
  2. Start clockworkmod recovery (instructions below)
  3. Select "install zip from sdcard"
  4. Then select "Choose zip from sdcard"
  5. Then select "su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip"
  6. Then select "Yes - install su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip" to confirm
  7. Then go back
  8. Then reboot.
  9. You're rooted!

How to start Clockworkmod:
  1. Unplug USB
  2. Turn the device off
  3. Hold volume down button (HOLD IT) and press power
  4. Hboot will start. Navigate to recovery with the vol down button. Press power to select and enter recovery.

How to start Fastboot USB mode:
  1. Unplug USB
  2. Turn the device off
  3. Hold volume down button (HOLD IT) and press power
  4. Hboot will start.
  5. Wait for sdcard scan to complete.
  6. Plug in USB cord connected to the computer
  7. Press power ONCE and Fastboot USB mode starts



Flashing custom roms is much like flashing the root files above. Follow the flashing instructions for the custom ROM you select if you choose to do so. NOTE: You do NOT need to root to flash a custom, rooted ROM.

Try it as root for Linux.

sudo ./fastboot <yadda>

If you are in windows, you need to install the correct drivers. The drivers are in HTC sync. Get the correct version sync for your phone from the HTC support site, install it, then de-install it, leaving just the drivers.

I am stuck at step 3, it says waiting on device when flashing the recovery. Developer USB is enabled on my android, what am I doing wrong? I also tried to boot in to bootloader and have it connected with USB but nothing happened.

Edit: I just need to select Fastboot then it installed the recovery. I am now in the Clock work recovery but anything I select shows the tophat and does nothing, I can go back to the menu though.

I need to do more research on Clockwork I guess

Edit again: Pressing the scrollbutton on the wildfire did the trick, sorry about noobing this thread, hopefully this will help other noobs :P

In short,
  1. Download the fastboot utility linked in post #1 for your OS.
  2. If you are using Windows (boo) download and install the HTC Android USB Driver for Microsoft PC from the bottom of this page.
  3. Run the command as appropriate for your OS;
    • fastboot flash recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (windows)
    • ./fastboot-mac recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (mac x86)
    • ./fastboot recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (linux)
