Default [Tool] Downgrade VivoW with hboot 0.98

  • Windows: Disable or remove all phone, PDA, MP3 sync softwares, including HTC Sync, itunes, and all Antivirus software and suspend all unnecessary processes.
  • Windows: Install HTC USB Drivers on your PC. http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe
  • 64 bit Linux Users: Android tools in the kit are 32 bit. You will need to install ia32-libs (Debian) or equivelent if they are not already installed. Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
  • Get adb and fastboot working on your PC
  • Start with phone in Charge Only mode, sdcard mounted by phone, not PC, and USB debugging enabled
  • A kit with everything needed (including adb and fastboot) including scripts. vwhk-12102011-c.zip MD5: 26a2dbcb96d82153add7edaccd157996
  • IMPORTANT: Run the Linux script as ROOT, run the Windows script as Admin.
  • Run Revolutionary for S-OFF & CWM if desired after downgrade. http://revolutionary.io/

Notes:
  • No goldcard needed for Verizon DINC2. If you ask this, you'll get nothing but hate.
  • Yes, this wipes data and downgrades the ROM completely.

Code:
Select Code
adb shell rm -r /data/local/tmp/*
adb push zergRush /data/local/tmp/zergRush
adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp/misc_version
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/zergRush
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version
adb shell /data/local/tmp/zergRush
adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c '/data/local/tmp/misc_version -s 2.18.605.3'
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem rebootRUU
fastboot erase cache
fastboot flash zip RUU_Vivo_W_Gingerbread_S_VERIZON_WWE_2.18.605.3_Radio_1.09.01.0622_NV_VZW1.92_release_199487_signed.zip
fastboot reboot


Thanks to:
Revolutionary - for everything they do
Ch4lky - zergRush
Guhl - misc_version

stuck on adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c '/data/local/tmp/misc_version -s 2.18.605.3'

C:\android-win-tools>adb shell /data/local/tmp/sh -c '/data/local/tmp/misc_versi
on -s 2.18.605.3'
--set_version set. VERSION will be changed to: 2.18.605.3
Patching and backing up partition 17...
Error opening backup file.

C:\android-win-tools>fastboot oem rebootRUU
< waiting for device >

Can't get past there.
what happened when you tried to get temproot with zergrush?

was the phone in charge only mode? It needs be to write a backup file to the sdcard.

the < waiting for device > error is because the fastboot driver is not installed or there is contention with some program.

i missed a step; updated code above:

prerequisite: adb and fastboot fully working.

Temproot with zergrush said that it was successful, phone is on charge only mode.

looks like fastboot doesn't seem to be working, I have it installed but I'll have to get to the bottom of this.

Any way for me to test if fastboot is working easily?

I missed the adb reboot step. check the code above for where that line goes.

Does this mean alpharevx isnt working on a 2.3.4 root? Is this the only way or just a way if you dont want to wait?

I saw the tool tweeted by AlpharevX. I wasn't sure if it would work for Inc2. I am already rooted, but thank you for writing a guide for us!!!!
