You have go to get that UBOOT on my phone right now! And add ADB and fastboot support, of course! It's a shame. You have a brilliant bootloader, but it doesn't support basic Android utils. Can't have the best of both worlds.

I've been wondering what would happen if all the devs suddenly ditched us. By the way, you remember the first exploit? The one where you have that zip you flash in HBOOT, that you leave on the root of the SD card? What did that actually do, other then brick the camera?

What you have to do is: make sure your sdcard works (should do after enableqxdm), go into your rom (must be rooted), get the flash_image tool (it is inside one of the attached files in this thread) and then do: flash_image misc /mnt/sdcard/misc.img

!!!!THANKS!!!!

It's "Das U-Boot". It's a play on words. U-Boot is short for "Universal Bootloader", but it is also German for "submarine" and "das" is the definite article, like "the" in English, so "Das U-Boot" means "the submarine".

Lol... I didn't know UBOOT was a real thing, just a misspelling of HBOOT, and made a joke about it. In particular it stands for unterseeboot which means literally Undersea Boat.

Lol! UBOOT is the bootloader for embedded Linux. It's GPLed software and boots practically all "non-smartphone/tablet/pda" embedded devices, like routers, satellite receivers (in fact it also boots the actual satellites themselves ), printers, etc.

All good mate, thanks heaps. No ADB or UMS made root challenging. I used Wifi Sync Manager and Terminal Emulator (it's painful as hell trying to find underscores and overloading operators on the stock HTC keyboard). All sorted now.

Thanks again!

EDIT: Any ideas how we went wrong in the first place? And how did you have the foresight to back up your misc partition?

ALWAYS back it up before if you can as you're essentially entering deep water with flashing or you can leave your BRICK in the water lol

Unlike MY phone which I tried CWM Titanium and dd and a few dump apps but ended up with nothing but finally found Xakep on Club-Acer.ru who managed to work out a Rom Flash to get root on ACER C6 .... all I have to do now is work out how to regain my Radio version back up to 1.013.0000 from 1.008.0000 (although the actual Radio is still 1.013 I think) seeing as now neither Xakep update or ACER EUU will NOT complete now

Here's a list of all the NAND chips I've come across mentioned within files for updates for HTC devices (including this bleeding ACER ) and I think if I remember rightly the one that least shows up is probably your chip (as that's how I found out mine before actually confirming it was that one....kinda a hunch)...

MICRON MT29F4G16ABC
MT29F2G08ABD
MT29F2G16AAD

SAMSUNG KA100H002G

NUMONYX NAND02GR4B2D
NAND04GR4B2D

SAMSUNG K524G2GACB

HYNIX H8BCS0UN0MCR

MICRON MT29F1G08
MT29F1G16

KFW4G16Q2M-DEB8
KFN4G16Q2M-DEB6
KFM4G16Q2A

Let me know which you may have and I'll see what I can find on them, not sure how much space is on them but mine is the MT29F4G16ABC so whatever the 4G comes to in real Mb (4G is Giga bit NOT Bytes).....
..... found it lol 512Mb (that's why 512Mb of Ram runs out so fast loading so much into it that's why my old LG GT540 has about as many apps as this ACER before it's full ) right where's my adb and hex edit? I'm having this!

I'm a professional application developer. I'd even make a backup of my girlfriend if it were possible. That's Rule1 before you touch anything. Backup, Backup, Backup!
