Hey everybody,

I'm opening this thread as a support tool for AplhaRev X.

I'm going to go first with my problem.

Phone gets detected, Beta key accepted and then I get to aquiring root.....

And that seems to be as far as I can get. I just seem to get stuck there.

Firstly I did it using Windows 7, which tells you to wait up to 15 mins and I went over this period. I did a factory reset on phone and tried again with the same result

I've just tried the Linux version on Ubuntu, again with the same result.

I've been connected as charge only, usb debugging turned on.

Currently running eclair 1.37 WWE but with hboot 1.01.0002 after several downgrades/upgrades attempting to root my phone. I am also using a goldcard and a modded misc image.

Why am I getting stuck at this point? Do I need to flash 2.2 first? Do I need to format sdcard or something?

Thanks

Problem Solved
Sorted,

Upgraded to Froyo which downgraded Hboot from 1.01.0002 to 1.01.0001,
redownloaded for hboot 1.01.0001 ran it and instant success.

Well done AlphaRev, its fantastic what you have achieved.

Theres a donation coming your way (not till payday though)

Is there anything else that I need beside AlphaRev X software? Because I run the software and connect the phone and it says "Waiting for device...". I left it for ten minutes and it still didn't detect my phone. Also, I have enabled USB debugging and selected "Charge only" mode when connected to PC. Am I doing something wrong?
Also note that I don't know a lot about flashing.
Thanks in advance

@dannyjmcguinness
good to see it solved. Issue maybe due to gingerbreak supporting froyo.

@Hooda_mask

What is ur os version. Have u downgraded to eclair without downgrading hboot (there is a process actually).
Maybe u also need the unrevoked hboot drivers. Uninstall htc sync if present.
http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.p...driver_install

Alternatively, irrespective of process, try to connect phone to pc in fastboot mode and check the command fastboot reboot from command prompt "tools folder" of android sdk (where fastboot.exe lies) and see whether phone reboots or not.

It is probably worth mentioning that these drivers are only required if you are using Windows. If you use the Linux version no additional drivers are needed.

Well I don't know I'm lost ... been trying for several hours now ... with no success.

I'm running the UK Vodafone RRU.

Phone is detected AlphaRevX runs fine ... i.e.

This is a beta release and requires a beta release key.
Please visit: http://alpharev.nl/x/beta for more information.

Enter beta key [serial: xxxxxxxxxxx]: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Beta key accepted - thank you for participating!

Acquiring root (method 1)...
Sending in Caroline...
Cleaning up...
Rebooting to fastboot...
Waiting for fastboot...
When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back!

Rebooting to fastboot (again)...
Waiting for fastboot...
FAILED - Go have some lemonade!

Running HBOOT 1.01.0002

Tried patching a WWE RRU but get a "HBOOT versions wrong error".

Perhaps I need a downgrade or other solution.....

Anyone got any ideas? Or is this Vodafone ROM is dead duck?

Not tried with Linux yet .....

Thanks in advance.
