HTC Dumlock

HTC Dumlock is a workaround for devices with HTC's unlock that cannot flash boot from recovery. Put simply, we make backups of recovery and boot, then we flash the backup of recovery to boot. When you reboot normally, you'll be in your recovery, but since your recovery is flashed to boot, you can make changes to boot. Head on over to our website for download links and instructions.

New v2 version scans / compares the backups of boot and recovery to help ensure that you don't run it twice and wipe out your backup of boot.

I just htc unlocked, flashed the updated twrp via fastboot, then backed up, flashed su, installed HTC DumLock. When I try to use the app it finishes within a minute but does not reboot, rebooting to system reboots doesn't boot into TWRP. I gave the app root permissions, what else should I try?

Thumbs up
This is awesome! Kudos! I'm a little squeamish to try it yet (I'm still android noobish ;) ); I'll wait a bit until the more seasoned folk work the kinks out, but I'm extremely encouraged.

Edit: Changed notification

i tried twice to flash a kernel and i get is the progress bar sits there, i let it go for 10 minutes each time but it never flashed the zip

UPDATE: I got it i had to restore the backup

Everything went fine for me until i try to boot to system from recovery,it just reboots back to recovery
I even tried powering down and do a normal start and it go's into recovery
