Default [PRIMOC][VIRGIN MOBILE][HowTo][RUU][With Updated Hboot]

This HowTo guide will show you a few different ways to RUU after you've updated your Hboot to 1.57.0000.

Before you will be able to use the RUU while on the Hboot 1.57.0000, you will need S-OFF.

rumrunner.us will give you S-OFF. It is advised by @beaups that you have a normal sense rom, and a stock sense kernel that is unsecure.

You can find both off those advised things in the CDMA Android development thread.
[December 6,2013][ROM] [PrimoC] Stock-Rooted Virgin Mobile HBOOT 1.57.0000


Alright, now for those who are S-OFF....


Option#1) The absolute easiest first.
(I'm assuming everybody has a working fastboot environment)


Download this PRIMO_C_rom.zip and rename it to rom.zip


Place the rom.zip inside your fastboot directory on your computer.

Boot your device into fastboot mode and make sure your are using a known working usb data cable.

Verify connectivity

fastboot devices

If it returns your serial number, good. Let's keep going.

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip rom.zip

At this point, you may get a FAILED(blablabla flush image immediately!)

This warning is because the hboot is updated and the one in the rom.zip is a downgrade Hboot 1.53.0000.

Simply flash the rom.zip again.

fastboot flash zip rom.zip

Now the device will accept and your device will be returned to it's original state, like when you purchased it. (Except you will not lose S-OFF) awesome right?

If your wondering where and/or how I got this rom.zip, this is how.

First you need to download the RUU from here(I'll post link when I'm finished, it's taking forever to upload, will post when it's done)

Start the RUU. When the initial start up page with the 'this will erase all data' disclaimer don't continue, just click on the Windows start button and type in the search bar %temp%

This will open a page with another search bar in it. Type rom.zip and hit enter, this will locate the rom.zip that is flashed by the RUU. Copy it to your desktop if you like. Anyways, that is where I've already snatched it from so you can just download from here.


Option#2) Download this 1.53_Hboot_PK76IMG.zip and rename it toPK76IMG.zip

This is the android-info.txt inside the PK76IMG.zip

modelid: PK7630000

cidnum: SPCS_002

mainver: 1.10.652.6

btype:1

aareport:1

hbootpreupdate:12

Modify it to match your current romver(mainver= romver) if your not sure what your current romver is, open Android terminal emulator and type

getprop ro.aa.romver



Place it on the root of your sdcard, meaning not in a folder.
Reboot into bootloader(where it automatically searches for the zip) the bootloader will find PK76IMG.zip and ask if you want to parse it, use the volume+ button to accept then power to reboot.

The only 2 items in this zip are the downgraded Hboot 1.53.0000 that is need to run RUU successfully and the android-info.txt that it needs to read to verify it's safe to flash.


After successfully flashing the downgraded Hboot you may connect your device via usb cable to your computer and run the RUU as usual.

Profit!
