Brought to you by touchpro247 and I. (touchpro247 put his phone on the line testing this)

First off, I take no blame for anything that happens due to this. This can potentially brick your phone. If this bricks your phone, makes it unstable, kills your cat.. YOUR FAULT not mine.

Please, don't make typos in the commands.

Eng Hboots allow you to flash unsigned images, and opens up more fastboot commands. Most people do not need this. This will not [provide perm root, or un-writeprotecte the emmc chip. In fact, if you don't have s-off it won't work for you.

radio (ship) s-off
Busybox properly installed
adb working

If you do not have busybox, you can use this app to install it

Download the ENGHboot for Vivo here:

put the file on your sdcard

Follow these commands

adb shell
If you have havea $ prompt and not a # prompt, run su

You should now have a # prompt and can continue

busybox md5sum /sdcard/vivo_enghboot.img
If the output is NOT b1829cfb7cf5d462660a58aa5449d27c , STOP redownload the file and try again. Anything else could cause a brick. If it matches, continue.

dd if=/sdcard/vivo_enghboot.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
reboot bootloader

You should now see this, and are done.

Note: This is case sensitive and the file should be placed on the root of your sdcard.

Please just use the "THANKS" feature.

We all need to help keep the Dev threads clean.

If a way to unlock the emmc write protection is found (it is not kernel based, and wpthis will not work), then this hboot can be used to set the phone s-off.
