S-OFF DEVICES ONLY

I WILL ONLY SAY THIS ONCE, IF YOU HAVE DATA ISSUES FROM SWITCHING FIRMWARES YOU MUST FLASH THE STOCK RECOVERY AND PERFORM A FACTORY RESET IN HBOOT




DO NOT S-ON THE ENG OR JB HBOOT OR IT WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE

ANYTHING DONE AT THIS POINT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY NOT MINE




So what is this?
Well ill answer that, these are Hboot/Radio/Firmware Combos

What do you do with these?
The purpose of these is avoid performing a full RUU if you would like to upgrade or downgrade firmwares/radios

So why do these include Hboot/radio/firmware files, cant we just flash the radios?
NO, mix and matching all of these has be known to cause data issues. Its best to flash the whole set to prevent data issues

How do you flash these?
Assuming you checked the MD5 sum, just rename these to PH98IMG.zip and place on the root of your external sdcard

New firmware patch huh?
This is simply for those upgrading to ICS firmware on a GB rom Or and ICS rom that had the gingerbread patch flashed over it

Whats the difference between the stock Hboots and the JB/ENG Hboots?
Simply, These Hboots have fastboot commands enabled WITHOUT unlocking the bootloader
I suggest if you use fastboot alot to use these hboots

Thanks to CharliesTheMan i now have a spot on AndroidFileHost

Heres how to tell which file you need

Each file will be named accordingly

[Firmware][Hboot version][JB or Stock hboot][Date of leak if applicable]

So an example would be [GB][2.11][JB]PH98IMG.zip

i suggest you check the MD5 and if you dont know what an MD5 is then you need to research what it is before flashing any of these

Here's the Link: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?a=sh...iles&flid=3054

Thanks to the JuopunutBear Team for getting us S-off, Jcase for the leaked Hboot

This is the eng hboot bundled up with the old firmware, you ust use the old firmware patch to run ics roms after flashing this

just place it on the root of your sd card, rename, and reboot to hboot
It will reboot once during the flash this is normal



DISCLAIMER: IT IS NOT MY FAULT IF YOU BRICK YOUR DEVICE DOING THIS, YOU MUST BE S-OFF AND AS ALWAYS CHECK THE MD5 SUM

OLD FIRMWARE PATCH: http://www.mediafire.com/?8v3a2al9129gp9h




Credits go to Jcase for the hboot, and to whom ever made the old firmware patch

This is what I've been running by default after s-off. Has been rock solid. Don't think I'll change for now as many are having issues and/or experimenting. I'll just wait and see what people come up with. Great job in doing this...

Thanks man! Set this up with Newts XxX rom and having no problems! I am pretty new to HTC phones coming from a DroidX. How do I know if the ENG installed correctly? I know the old firmware is loaded up right.

The hboot will say ENG S-OFF near the top.

This works perfectly and i do think i notice a slight smoother response on most things then before plus the radios like me again. Awesome job

on a side note : con247 every time i see you post something i look at your speedtest sig and get so jealous and angry at the same time since i cant get anything over 8 mbit upload (and that's business class internet) where im at.... kudos to you and fml lol
