I have a blue T-Mobile HTC One S.

Neither of the two official CWM recoveries worked form me. I tried flashing them multiple times and even tried "adb boot" instead of "adb flash".

I tried getting Paul's but the website just kept sending me in circles and popping up ads.

I found this and it worked....

it probably didn't work because you didn't use fastboot like your supposed too. the command is fastboot flash, not adb flash.

thats misleading --- it absolutely did not work because he used adb flash, but that doesnt mean the img's are sticking anyway.

of course adb flash gets you nowhere but thats not why Koush's images are not sticking. It appears that Obrien's version is working the most... I was able to flash Koush's regular one (non touchscreen) the first time... and when I was playing around I lost it and had a difficult time getting a new one to stick. I must have flashed 50 images since Thurs and only four stuck that I know about. One was Koush's and three was Obriens. I dont think I have one right now but thats OK, I finally got rid of all that tmocrapware and got my apps installed and all is well and backed up... so I dont want to fix anything anymore if it aint broke.

I am however tired of Sense... it is so gross. I really miss AOSP, I feel like I am stuck in Taiwan without a passport.

Confirmed that this is working and the ones on Koush's site do not. Also Paul's site seems to be down.

There is no S-OFF yet.
Running an RUU will remove root.
The phone can be locked again via HTCDev. The phone will show 'relocked' in the bootloader.

relocked warranty will not be. close the boot loader can be a ADB
«fastboot oem lock»

Sorry for a stupid Windows question, but--

I am looking at this phone for US TMO to replace my rooted N1 instead of buying the GN. I have sdk/java/adb/fastboot all setup from the N1. I guess I just need to get the One S drivers from HTC website or maybe phone will prompt me when i first hook it up.

Question--

I was doing prelim work on unlock instructions and see I still need HTC Sync on laptop--or do I--???

When I went to dl to laptop and run setup got a box that said something to the effect the setup app is not a valid win32 file or something like that. Does my 4 year old Viao not meet HTC Sync requirements to install. Running Vista32 with 2g ram and plenty memory or bad dl--tried it 3 times--never saw that warning before--and doesn't make sense--

And are all of you using the adb backup method prior to unlock or another way now availble. I could use MyBackUp before I put any of my apps on it--not sure if that would suffice--


Thanks for any help guys--phone looks great and with 42mb coming, semi-future proof for awhile as speeds go--unlike GN


EDIT: Got HTC Sync installed even if I don't need it to unlock--not sure why it worked all of a sudden--


Ken
