(this is the only way we have now to upgrade the hboot.img, bct.img, rcdata.img, etc...)

Method 1
  • Install stock rom of your CID
-fastboot oem readcid (to know your CID)
-all roms are based on x.xx.401.xx , so you need to download the right RUU(that matches your CID) and extract rom.zip to cook a stock rom for you
-flash custom stock rom(extracted and cooked from right RUU) on custom recovery
-fastboot flash boot c:\boot.img (flash stock kernel that's inside custom stock rom boot.img file)

  • RElock the bootloader (you can allways unlock)
-fastboot oem lock

  • Right RUU file for your CID
-put your phone on fastboot (it will not boot because you have a custom rom on a locked bootloader)
-now you can run the RUU exe file and upgrade your phone

Method 2

  • Extract the rom.zip from RUU of your CID (google how extract ruu.exe)
-fastboot oem readcid (to know your CID)
  • Extract boot.img, system.img, signed_recovery.img from rom.zip
  • Flash
-fastboot flash recovery signed_recovery.img
-fastboot flash boot boot.img
-fastboot flash system system.img
-fastboot erase cache
-fastboot oem lock
  • Power on the phone
  • Run the RUU exe file (of your CID) and upgrade your phone

Method 3 (like Method 2, but we dont need to flash the system) (thanks to EddyOS)

  • Extract the rom.zip from RUU of your CID (google how extract ruu.exe)
-fastboot oem readcid (to know your CID)
  • Extract boot.img, signed_recovery.img from rom.zip
  • Flash
-fastboot flash recovery signed_recovery.img
-fastboot flash boot boot.img
-fastboot oem lock
  • Run the RUU exe file (of your CID) in fastboot mode

Sometimes when you have a custom rom, you can not update your stock ruu for signature problems (difference between boot, hboot, recovery versions), try to include the TUT to flash the stock RUU and then your TUT

thats why you need to flash a stock custom rom, on recovery first, to avoid signature problems (the same rom from the right RUU)

Tell me, why should be this way the only way to get the updates? Yesterday i tried it, like its written here and all went okay. The only correction to do is in point 2: fastboot erase cache

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1609190
  1. Flash a ROM and boot image based on 1.26 (e.g ARHD 2.1)
  2. Clear fastboot cache Code:
    fastboot clear cache
  3. Boot your phone
  4. Charge you phone completely
  5. Download stock recovery
  6. Flash stock recovery Code:
    fastboot flash recovery endeavoru_recovery_signed.img
  7. Relock bootloader Code:
    fastboot oem lock
  8. Run 1.26 RUU

  7. Relock bootloader Code:

  8. Run 1.26 RUU

whats your CID ? and what RUU file did you run ?
i think the rom on the phone must be from the same CID of the RUU, but dont have sure. (only applies to non super CID phones)

Thatīs right. The CID is inside the device and the RUU has to be the same. But custom roms donīt change the cid, because for this you must have S-Off. At this time the original cid will not be replaced by another. But in the old method all runs well.
I have an o2 device, cid is O2___102, this was never changed by any custom rom.

EXACTLY .... the ARHD 2.1 is base on x.xx.401.xx ?
401 is RUU_ENDEAVOR_U_ICS_40_HTC_Europe


so i dont understand how your method worked for you....
you should use a rom base from a O2-DE O2___102 RUU

because a rom base on on x.xx.401.xx didnt work for me (my CID VODA-UK VODAP001)

HI

Firstly thanks for all the effort you put in around the forum, ive read quite a few of your posts.
I notice youve done a custom Vode rom, is there any chance of doing a H3G__001, im on the 3 network and would like to be able to flash the latest H3G rom if i ever want to go stock again, obviously being an unlocked Orange phone it wont let me, or if you arent able too, time concerned and stuff which i understand, could you point me in the direction of where i could find the info needed on whats involved.

Many Thanks.
