/* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or the end of the world. Please do some research
 * if you have any concerns about flashing a radio before flashing it!
 * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the
 * finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. */
How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Sensation needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.
  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Sensation.
  2. Make sure the filename is PG58IMG.zip exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Sensation to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    Code:
    adb push PG58IMG.zip /sdcard/PG58IMG.zip
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/PG58IMG.zip
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Sensation will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Sensation normally.

First, thank you for the write up and radio links and contribution to all of this.

Now for my question: Wouldn't fastboot be easier and safer?
1 - Copy the .img to your /sdk/tools folder (or whatever folder depending on computer OS). Verify MD5.
2 - Boot into bootloader (Vol Down + Pwr).
3 - Navigate to Fastboot (Vol down to Fastboot and press Pwr). Make sure your phone says Fastboot USB.
4 - Open command promt (or terminal depending on OS)in folder you put file.
5 - Type:
Code:
fastboot flash radio xxxx.img
xxxx is radio name.

I find this faster and safer. I find SDCards can corrupt the file easier than anything else therefore leaving the file on your computer to flash from is one less transfer and possible issue. As we all know, the 2 things that have the greatest chance of bricking a device are your Radio and Bootloader images.

Just my .02

Fastboot probably won't be available at first, htc locked that down pretty tight for signed packages, this method is certain to work when s-off is released...

When eng s-off arrives, that should be a different story :P

Doesn't this link have Eng S-Off Bootloader?

Maybe I'm reading into things too much and not understanding.
