[Tool][Vodafone+Unbranded!]One & Only easy + working downgrade for revolutionary
THIS DOES ONLY WORK ON GINGERBREAD AND ON A BOOTLOADER VERSION <=1.49.x18
Disclaimer: You do that because you want it. Noone forces you to do that. Problems always can be solved, I will help as much as I can.
you can now watch a video where you see how to do it. But quality, sorry I have no good camera.
This will downgrade your hboot to 1.49.0007
If you is branded by any other carrier then vodafone, this won't work. (Unbranded Device's too)
Why is that so? Because it is not possible til now to debrand your device.
I have tried plenty things with some friends, sadly no luck at all.
CID changing does not work for branded devices, if there is not more than one RUU.
This Tool will work, if your device has one of the following CID's.
From the other thread that you aren't using anymore..

adb shell getprop ro.cid
fastboot oem writecid VODAP001
will give some errors, just wait.
fastboot oem writecid VODAP001
will give erros again.
fastboot getvar cid
should display now VODAP001
if it does that, I can make a second downgrade just for vodafone devices.

Hi! Last week I consulted you regarding my failed attempt using your superscripts on the older thread. Mine is on hboot 1.49.0011 and CID__044. I attempted again today and as expected failed again at Step3.EXE (missing the green progress bar) but this time I want to report the wierd behaviour seen during the failed attempt.
CID changed from CID__044 to CID__001 (permanent, even after reboot).
Bootloader remained UNLOCKED.
Attempt to manually relock the Bootloader successful but if the bootloader is rebooted, then it became unlocked again (so this means a temp relock only).
Tried to relock multiple times but whenever rebooted, bootloader UNLOCKED again.
At this state, changing to any desired CID is not a problem, it's locking the bootloader that is the problem.
--> this explained why Step3.EXE failed because the bootloader remained UNLOCKED after a quick reboot.
If change the CID back to the original CID, then the bootloader can be RELOCKED but after relocked, I'm no longer able to change the CID.
Is it possible (upon completion of Step1.EXE and/or Step2.EXE) for your RUU at Step3.EXE to proceed without doing a quick reboot? Meaning I relocked my bootloader and leave it at FASTBOOT USB? Because after a quick reboot, my bootloader became unlocked and RUU will fail.
