warning - if you are s off do not use this guide to return to stock till its updated. You will brick your device


Unrooting The HTC Rezound



1. Assuming your bootloader is unlocked since you are rooted.

Fastboot Tool Download (Credit to slacker101 for the tool):
http://db.tt/nDADCLgY

The easiest way I've found to re-lock your rezound is to download the attached "tools.zip" and extract to your desktop.

Boot your rezound into fastboot by removing your battery, putting the battery back in, holding down on the volume rocker and power. Then plug your rezound into your computer. Assuming you used your computer to unlock the rezound then you should already have the required drivers.

Open command prompt and enter the following:

cd C:\Users\[Your Name Here]\desktop\tools

Then run the command

fastboot oem lock


Your bootloader is now locked and ready to begin restoring stock recovery and rom from Stock RUU.



2. Downloading the stock RUU

*Will Update As New RUU's Are Released*

2.02.605.11 STOCK RUU EXE
download
1.02.605.6 STOCK RUU EXE
download

(will add PH98IMG.zip download for 2nd method soon)

You can do this one of two ways. You can use the exe ruu which i like to use, its simple straight forward and guides you through the process

-or-

Extract the RUU zip from the exe or download from XDA its all over.
Rename the zip PH98IMG.ZIP put on root of SD card and boot into HBOOT hit
yes with appropriate volume key and let it do its thing.

I personaly perfer running the exe. Makes life easy. But whatever floats your boat.


SIDE NOTE: IF YOU WISH TO ROOT AGAIN
the one click root tool might not work properly and will not have proper permision to install SU, If this happens flash amon through fastboot. And under development section install su / superuser, you are now rooted again

***this was a quick write up so if you think anything should be added or removed, or there is some wrong information let me know so i can fix it***

Just wanted to add a little something, if you dont mind...

The easiest way I've found to re-lock your rezound is to download the attached "tools.zip" and extract to your desktop.

Boot your rezound into fastboot by removing your battery, putting the battery back in, holding down on the volume rocker and power. Then plug your rezound into your computer. Assuming you used your computer to unlock the rezound then you should already have the required drivers.

Open command prompt and enter the following:
Quote:

cd C:\Users\[Your Name Here]\desktop\tools

Then run the fastboot oem lock command.

I wasn't expecting the lock process to be a big deal, but unfortunately it looks a little strange

Quote:

C:\Android>fastboot oem lock
...
(bootloader) Lock successfully...
(bootloader) TZ_HTC_SVC_DISABLE ret = 134086000 (0x7FDFD70)
FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))
finished. total time: 0.937s

I assume this is wrong with the failed? I was also not expecting fastboot to say "RELOCKED". Can we get it to say "LOCKED"?
