DFT HSPL RSPL WP7F3

DarkForcesTeam proudly presents RSPL / HSPL
for phones HTC WP7 First Generation



(Short name is “WP7F”)
This is first big step to customization and community development for these devices.


History:


15.02.2012 Updated release. Revision #3.
Changes:
  • Was added support for 'SCHU1000' and 'PD291200' MIDs
  • Removed OTA update inside RSPL and HSPL, this allows to keep HSPL after HTC OTA Zune update.
  • Added warning screen about 4.XX and 5.XX
  • But still NO support for 4.XX and 5.XX
  • Support for CDMA devices: GoldC and SparkW
  • Wizard UI: only WWE support remains.

NOTE for ROM chefs:
SparkW custom ROMs must has "SPAW1000" MID instead of "PC402000".
This is done to protect from flashing Spark custom ROM to Spark_W and reversed.



18.08.2011 Updated release. Revision #2.
Changes:
  • Improved wizard GUI on non DPI 96 systems.
  • Added support for "PD291300", "PD291500" two new Schubert MIDs.
  • Replaced RSPL and HSPL for Spark from 1.10 to 1.20.
01.08.2011 Initial release. Revision #1.




WARNING TO ALL:
Do NOT use RSPL / HSPL with Mozart 4.XX and other RUU ROMS with MANGO.
All WP7F devices affected: MOZART, GOLD, SCHUBERT, MONDRIAN, SPARK!
It will damage your device. Not a joke.
MORE INFORMATION HERE



Read the next few messages for more information.


This release supports those WP7F devices:

*Gold (HTC Pro 7,T7575)
*Mozart (HD3,T8697,T8698,T8699)
*Mondrian (Surround,T8788)
*Spark (Trophy,T8686)
*Schubert (HD7, HD7S, T9292,T9295,T9296)
*HTC Gold C (HTC Arrive)
*HTC Spark W (Trophy Verizion)


Most of these devices have several MIDs (ModelID, looks like “PC921000”).
Current release supports only some limited number of MIDs. This was designed to minimize possible harm to user’s devices.

List of supported MIDs:

Gold: “PC92****”, “PC921000”
Mozart: “MOZA1000”, “PD67****”, “PD671000”, “PD671200”
Mondrian: “PD26****”, “PD261000”, “PD261100”
Spark: “PC401000”
Schubert: “PD29****”, “PD291000”, “PD291100”, "PD291200", "PD291300", "PD291500"


!Please note that on SPL screen MID is only 7 symbols, without last one.!

Programs stops any operations if unknown MID detected. If your device have unknown MID, please report about it in this thread. Specify your MID, device name, ROM versions. It’s nice, if you can give a link to download ROM.


Basic stuffs to know:

SPL is Secondary Program Loader. It allows to flash ROMs to device.
Without working SPL device is fully bricked, you can’t restore it. It’s why all operations with SPL are dangerous.
OSPL is Original SPL. This SPL comes with stock ROM and doesn’t allow to flash custom stuffs.
RSPL is Reloaded SPL. It load only to RAM, so it doesn’t persistent. It’s enough to soft reset device to get OSPL back.
HSPL is Hard SPL. It’s permanently flashed to internal device memory and replaces OSPL. After soft reset you still have HSPL instead of OSPL.

This release consists from RSPL and HSPL wizards.
For regular users, who flash ROMs rather rare, it can be enough to use only RSPL.
For advanced users and ROM makers, it can be useful to install HSPL.


IMPORTANT NOTES
1. Before doing any operations be sure you have battery level more than 50%!
Sometimes in SPL mode WP7F devices DO NOT charge. You may got a cold brick if it power down during SPL or RADIO update!
2. Stock RUU ROMs have two NBH inside, SPL_Signed and RUU_Signed.
So it's not possible directly flash stock ROM, you need extract files and remove SPL_Signed.nbh at least.
3. Rememeber if you have HSPL and you flashing stock RUU_Signed.nbh you lost HSPL!
4. Supported OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7.


Warranty Issues

Be warned, using RSPL may void your warranty.
If you need to send your device to a Repair Centre, make sure that it looks like stock! Install stock official ROM before go to Repair Centre.

Issues with MANGO RUU ROMS.


List of such ROMs:

It's not full list. Maybe some other ROMs affected by this too.
Thread about this ROMs.

RUU_Gold_S_HTC_Europe_3.02.401.01_Radio_5.69.09.29 a_22.50.50.21_Signed_GOLD_RELEASE.exe
RUU_Mozart_S_HTC_Europe_4.06.401.00_5.69.09_RELEAS E.exe
RUU_Mozart_S_HTC_RUS_4.06.411.00_5.69.09_RELEASE.e xe
RUU_Schubert_S_HTC_Europe_4.05.401.02_Radio_5.69.0 9.29a_22.50.50.21_Signed_SCHUBERT_RELEASE.exe
RUU_Spark_S_HTC_Europe_4.06.401.00_5.69.09_RELEASE .exe


About issue:

After running RSPL on MANGO OSPL, you can't flash device via SPL.
Windows Phone 7 OS is still booting and working.
Instead of full SPL screen you will see only one the first line:
You device will be "HALF BRICKED", because you can use OS, but can't flash anything else.



At the current moment it's IMPOSSIBLE to recover such devices. And I am not sure it will be ever possible.


What you must NOT do:

Before running RSPL wizard check your SPL screen.
There current SPL version at top: "X.Y.Z 2250 "
When wizard asks you to choose your current SPL version, be sure it's present inside versions list.
If your current SPL version doesn't present in the list, you can choose nearest version, BUT ONLY IF IT HAS SAME FIRST NUMBER!!
Example: You have 4.XX on the device. Do NOT choose 1.XX 2.XX 3.XX.

Generally it means that you must NOT run RSPL wizard after MANGO RUU ROM installation. You must flash older version (with 7004 or NoDo) and then run RSPL.
Installed OS version doesn't important. Only SPL version important.

Great work Cotulla you've done it again, broken through that barrier that just keeps our devices from being something wonderful.

I just want to confirm, Does this support *Schubert (HD7,HD7s, T9292,T9295,T9296) for the install of HSPL? When I launch the install HSPL program it does not show up as a supported device, but when you launch the Launch RSPL it shows up as a supported device. Thanks.

Enter your device to SPL mode (Hold VolumeDown during reset) and look at the screen:

if you see there "PD29****”, “PD291000” or “PD291100" - it should work

You need run HSPL program _only_ after successful run of RSPL program!
