Hi All

I tried to S-OFF my wife's phone and screwed up big time!
Long story short, I have now access only to Bootloader and Recovery (TWRP 2.5.0.0).
I can't install any rom, can't boot up the phone.

I thought I can RUU and then start everything over (CID, root, S-OFF) but I can't find RUU to download.
Besides - is that a good idea or maybe I can try something else?

Her phone was rooted, CID but no S-OFF.
Now, when I try to install Rom, it fails every time. I think something got messed up in the partitions but I'm not 100% sure.

Any suggestions?

What are your bootloader details? Have you read the Evita FAQ thread and the How-To Guide For Beginners thread? Both links are in my signature.

Bootloader shows this:


*** TAMPERED ****
*** UNLOCKED ****
EVITA PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.14.0002
RADIO-0.19as.32.09.11_2
OpenDSP-v29.1.0.45.0622
eMMC-boot


No matter what I do, I can't install any ROM.
When trying to flash ROM through TWRP, it fails all the time, no matter what ROM I'm trying.
When I tried to RUU, it also failed.

Edit:
When trying to wipe from recovery cache, dalvik, system - I'm getting Failed
When trying to install CleanRom 5.1 & 7 - I'm getting Failed.
I have no idea what else I can try.
When I'm rebooting from recovery to bootloader, I'm getting a message that no OS is installed and the my device does not appear to be rooted.

Update your TWRP version to 2.6. TWRP 2.5 caused a lot of issues, if I remember properly.

Thank you very much.
After changing TWRP to 2.6, I was able to install CleanRom 5.1 and S-OFF.

Thanks again

New issue now...
Hi again all

I'm having another issue now with the phone after I'm S-OFF.
I can install CleanRom 7 and it's working.
I wanted to install CM10.2.1 but I can't.
When I'm trying to install it, the second I select the file, I get FAILED in red.

error message : assert failed: getprop(ro.product.device") == E:Error executing updater binary in zip, error flashing zip cm-`0.2.1-evita updating partition details...

Any ideas guys?

Thank you very much

Your firmware is too old, you need to run the 3.18 RUU to upgrade it. That information is readily available in the CM thread, please search before posting in future.
