Manual Create Hboot Kernel Zip :
This option makes a mkboot folder on /sdcard with subfolders called zImage, modules, & androidinfo. Selecting this will mount sdcard to pc as mass storage and then the user adds the zImage, kernel modules, and android-info.txt(from a current RUU) to their respective folders. The installed boot.img will be dumped and zImage(kernel) replaced with new one and repacked into a boot.img. Next existing kernel modules will be removed from current rom and new ones installed. Then a PXXXIMG.zip to be flashed from hboot will be created and you will be rebooted to bootloader to install it.

Auto Flash RA Hboot Setup Zip :
This option lets you browse to and flash a special zip that copies the above listed items to the sdcard in mkboot folder and then automatically runs the above hboot zip creation and reboots you to bootloader to install. Template zip (for kernel dev's) is attached below. Just place the correct items in the folder in zip template and have the user flash the zip using the above option and recovery will do the rest.


Trouble Shooting:
Use option under Other menu to move recovery log to sd. Mount your sdcard to pc and read that file called recovery.log. It should have detailed cause of error.

Special Thanks:

Chingy for testing.

PLEASE NOTE THAT HTC DEV UNLOCK LOCKS BOOT AND RECOVERY SO THOSE CAN ONLY BE UPDATED VIA FASTBOOT. Once Revolutionary full s-off's it recovery will be able to flash those (that is IF they do).

Please flash recovery.img with command "fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img" where nameofrecovery.img is the name of the recovery.img you wish to flash.

OLD VERSION MD5SUM = 9a9ec22821f606694a143b34186831e1 PH98IMG.zip

version 3.10 is here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=83

version 3.13 is here

Changes for 3.14 :
Added backup/restore for android_secure on internal_sd. Internal_sd is the internal storage of device. External is the removable micro_sd. Stockish roms may have .android_secure on internal and aosp roms will always have it on external. You will need to know the location of it in your rom or else select both options to make sure its backed up.

Changed font color back to cyan blue. I'll see if its possible to have a txt file on sdcard that lets you select font color in the future (again if its possible).

older version 3.14 recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img
md5 915d5e3cb662076f36f3d6e54759e951 recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img

version 3.15 & changelog are here V3.15

Latest 3.16 V3.16 Updated the Rooting option and su + superuser option should now work. Note its a zipped .img not an Hboot type zip
md5 = ba69c118eb30ddf05e4743541bec0189 recovery-ra-vigor-3.16-gnm.img.zip

I am not sure I am understanding this part of the post. HTC's bootloader unlock will allow us to flash this and boot images, but only via fastboot right? We can flash this recovery image via fastboot and use it to install roms right? We just need to flash this recovery image via fastboot/hboot and then flash the boot image for the rom via fastboot?

Or am I misunderstanding it that we cannot modify recovery or boot in any way (fastboot included) until we are supported by revolutionary?

With htc unlock this has to be flashed from hboot/fastboot. Also with only htc unlock you will not be able to flash a rom that contains a boot.img via recovery till full s-off is acheived. You can however flash the rom minus boot.img then flash boot.img via hboot/fastboot.

Ok. So technically we don't need S-Off, it would just be nice. And boot.imgs are easy to flash via hboot, just pop it in to a PH98img.zip. Obviously recovery would be more convenient, but atleast we don't need to wait for Revolutionary support assuming HTC Dev works.

The name of the zip depends on the device. The Incredible uses PB31IMG.zip, the Evo uses PB36IMG.zip. Not sure about the Rezound though

Yes you need s-off. The htc unlock s-off is not a true full s-off. The htc dev unlock s-off lets you flash unsigned zips in hboot. However boot and recovery partitions are write protected unless flashed from bootloader. True s-off like revolutionary give writes acess to boot and recovery partitions outside of bootloader. I just notified everyone about not being able to flash boot.img in recovery with htc dev s-off its not a flaw of recovery but of htc unlock method.

Technically we don't need it though atleast if we are willing to flash via hboot/fastboot while we wait for revolutionary.

Yes that was the device this recovery was tested on. Tester stated it was s on then unlocked by htc dev. Lets try to keep this thread on topic and have another thread about s-off.

Since we kinda need some sort of unlock to use this, and htcdev has removed the Rezound, it is actually on topic.

Has anybody gotten an early delivery of a shipped model that might be working on unlocking it?
