RUU is posted...This is for S-off users only and is a complete RUU
Full Firmware. Stock recoveries. and OTA updates
!!!THIS DOES NOT EFFECT ROOT OR S-OFF OR BOOTLOADER UNLOCK!!!
You will still be unlocked and S-off after flashing...
Firmware files include boot.img and recovery.img.
Place the zip in your fastboot/adb directory on your computer.
Put the device in fastboot mode
(Volume down and power until menu appears, select fastboot using power button)
Connect the device to the computer
Enter the following commands from terminal/command prompt in the fastboot directory, one at a time:
fastboot oem rebootRUU (this puts the device in RUU mode)
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip (rename file to firmware.zip)
It will say that the update did not finish, to flush again, so repeat the above step:
fastboot flash zip firmware.zip
fastboot reboot-bootloader (this reboots the device to bootloader)
I cut and pasted from the other thread, so if I do the above I will have sense 6 and will also keep my root/s-off and unlocked status? If that is true then I would just need to use the 3.09 firmware and rename it to firmware.zip? What is the 2.16 firmware for? Thanks for your help and thanks for setting this up for everyone to use I just don't want to mess up my phone by not asking if I am understanding this correctly.
I totally bricked the phone, not sure how I did it. I can only get to the bootloader screen. When I try and go into recovery I get the phone image with the red trianlge inside of it. It will eventually go back to the bootloader screen but there is nothing I can do from there. The battery is around 20 percent does that make a difference on getting into the recovery? I have also seen a phone image with 3 green arrows making a circle. I think this phone is toast lol..
When I am in the bootloader screen, my pc no longer sees my phone, adb doesn't see a device when I try and go to recovery I get either a red triangle screen or the image with the 3 green arrows. factory reset from bootloader screen does the same thing..I can always get to bootloader screen but that is about all. What you typed to me in reply is pretty foreign to me. I bit off more than I could chew. If my pc through USB cant see the phone and no ADB how else can i flash something on the phone? Thanks for your help though, if I can't fix it what are my options? Can I send it to HTC and pay them to get me back to stock? I know my warranty is gone lol. This is all my fault, I shouldn't have tried to update to sense 6 when I was so unsure of what I was doing. Certainly your instructions were perfect for anyone with a brain for this stuff.
I just want to say that dottat helped me out in a big way getting my phone up and running better than it ever did before. I was seriously going to be looking into using an upgrade on my Verizon account to get a new phone after I continuously failed to sort out this problem I created for myself. dottat logged onto my computer and took over and within 15 minutes I was good to go, not to mention he taught me quite a bit of stuff that I am going to try and soak in. Thanks again my friend, I really appreciate what you did. I am thrilled the phone is working great again and Sense 6 seems IMO to be a nice leap forward when compared to 5.5.
