Anyone downgraded from 3.24 firmware using a Stock GB RUU?

Thanks - My main concern was the the ruu.exe would see the "different" image (3.24), but it had no problem flashing over it.
sorry for the delay... haven't been online much today:

  • hboot is 1.18.0000 - was immediately after flashing 1.50, and still is (obviously)
  • wifi seems fine, but I never had issues before, so I'm not a good test for that
  • I was S-Off, but did writesecureflag 3 to go S-on, and yes, lost recovery, and it was a brand new /system, so most definitely lost su
Hope that helps! About to root/s-off again with Revolutionary, just wanted to make sure I could get back to pure stock with S

Thank Trkaaa,

it was the the RUU...
I ended up doing what the other person did and went back to the stock rom, it got the radio to work again, but I still don't have 4g speed, but at least I have a cell signal again.
Still working on getting my 4g speed back.

  • Glad it worked
  • always use old htc drivers from revolutionary Page HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe
  • before that uninstall htc sync , and also uninstall new htc drivers that are installed with it ( new drivers Proved preventing a lot of things including revolutionary )
  • run as administrator , remove conflicting software from PC and Phone ,and if needed disable AV

Download android sdk and latest Java Run Time. Install Java JRE and then SDK . Run Android sdk manager. Install the platform tools from that .

OTA Updates?
Hi,

I followed the instructions in this Thread to debrand my sensation. Now I'm waiting for the OTA-Update to ICS. Can I still receive OTA-Updates?

Which CID should I use? (HTC-GER) HTC__102, (HTC-WWE) HTC__001 or the SuperCID 11111111?

Should the Phone be S-On or S-Off?

Or isn't it possible to receive OTAs anymore?

To get my phone s-off i used the htcdev-method.

My Bootloader shows the following informations:

*** RELOCKED ***
PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.18.0000
eMMC-boot

I hope you can give me a hint!

  • lot of questions here
  • first is you are not S-OFF , htc dev keeps the device S-ON ( PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-ON RL ) , but unlocks some features of bootloader not all of them
  • if you received an OTA while you are S-ON , you may not be able to S-OFF your device later on , So you should not receive OTA untill you do revolutionary S-OFF first , if you have problem with revolutionary use links in my signature
  • after S-OFF , i don't know why then you want to receive OTA's , better do the following :
    • if you want original like Software , then use Stock Rooted Roms ( either for GB or ICS )
    • look at this Latest Stock ICS Rom
    • or use usual custom Roms
  • As for what you need to receive an OTA you need :
    • to flash an RUU that will give you ( Stock recovery and original hboot ) ,
    • and Cid should be according to the RUU you used to debrand or your original Cid ,
    • super cid may or may not allow receiving OTA ( you can try )
  • go here for how to prepare your device to receive OTA http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1538032

I'm currently on ARHD 3.24 Firmware.

If I installed my GB RUU Directly? Is it possible? or do I need to downgrade my Hboot to 1.17 first before I could proceed?

And how will I be doing that then?
Since Downgrading to 1.17 wont allow me to use ICS ARHD. Will I be able to use adb still to proceed?
