Any chance you could add all 3 images? System, Recovery, and Boot please?

I have wasted more than enough time trying to use this tool, but I don't know if I have a driver problem or what.

I can get into FB mode fine (with the Wordart style logo appearing on my screen), but when I'm in that, Win7 gives me an "Unknown device" - despite all the correct drivers being installed.. uninstalled..installed, round and round again

I get stuck at "waiting for device".

All ADB functionality etc works as normal.. when booted up into normal mode.

A site search and/or Google search will provide you at least a dozen tutorials on installing, testing, and using ADB/Fastboot drivers. This tool works perfectly, but it cannot read our minds or put our feet on the floor for us.

Should you desire help, feel free to tell us exactly what device you're using, what software and/or boot loader might be installed, what host computer you're using, it's operating system, what drivers you're using and their source, whether there's any other Android software installed on the computer (developer tools, etc), and we'll try to guide you.

But since the problem is not with this tool, please post your request in a non-development section. Thanks.

Hey man I ran your tool tried option 1 and 2 but even after a restore I am still stuck in bootloop. Little background here, I was rooted with the revalpha cm10 installed. I then installed the hashcode dual boot but didn't see where it said to do it from stock amazon rom. So then it was goofed, I reflashed back to cm10 via fastboot commands etc. I even then got from CWm to TWRP and tried installing KFHD_SRT_v1.2.3 from there but it failed, tried from sideload adb as well. Any ideas from here?

This is what I did with the tool in this thread, I even just trying returning to stock via KFFirstAide64 but still in loop. From my knowledge these tools revert your recovery and system back to stock.


Not sure why this worked but after installing the kindlefirst aid I ran the commands for the boot and recovery from the front page and now I'm back. Now back to hascode's dual boot lol

Glad you figured it out. I just re-purchased The HD7 so I will soon be updating this tool to include the boot and recovery images for newer software versions. Hopefully to make things easier for everyone out there.
Sorry about any lack of support but I ve had to deal with replacing my laptop and getting everything setup the way I want it.

It's all good man, thanks for making it in the first place. I was just confused because I thought those files were only for downgrading so never applied them.

Can I use this after 7.3.0 update?
First off thank you for this, it saved my ass last week. Can I use this if I am on 7.3.0 and re flash the previous version? I got my kfhd7 a week ago and haven't finished setting it up and running the ota script and now they updated it and I lost root and my playstore.

I put together this tool for those that have tried to modify their system unsuccessfully and bricked their device. You must be able to get your device into fastboot for this to work. The easiest way is to purchase a factory cable or make your own(a $15 purchase or a little bit of your time is better than a bricked device).
The .img's in this tool were made from a rooted device w/ the su binary in place. There is no need to re-root your device, however if you choose to erase cache and user data(not necessary but may be a good idea) you will need to re-install Superuser.apk to gain root.

Instructions:
1.) Download the version you want to use from the link below and unzip.
2.) Enable fastboot mode. Turn off your device then plug into your pc using a factory cable. If the device is recognized by adb then you can use this command:

Code:
adb shell su -c "reboot bootloader"
3.) Run the SR Tool.bat and follow the instructions. If you wish to downgrade system versions see instructions at the bottom of the post.

Downloads:
KFHD_SRT_v1.3.0- 7.2.3(Boot, Recovery, and System img.) This will remove custom recovery,
KFHD_SRT_v1.2.3- 7.2.3
KFHD_SRT_v1.2- 7.2.1
KFHD_SRT_v1.0- 7.1.5

I apologize for the size of this tool. The .img files used are rather large. If you want to use your own backup .img then download the lastest version of this tool from here. Just place your system.img inside images folder. It must be named system for option 1 or system2 for option 2

UPDATES:
3/21/13
-KFHD_SRT_v1.3.0
-boot and recovery images inlcuded
-SuperSU and GoogleServicesFramework now included as system apk's
12/22/12
-KFHD_SRT_v1.2.3
-System v7.2.3
-New option for installing Googleservicesframework.apk
12/17/12
-downgrade method instructions(confirmed)
12/1/12
-KFHD_SRT_v1.2
-new system partition backups for software v7.2.1
-vending.apk to phonesky.apk for newest version of play store

Instructions for downgrading to 7.2.1:
1.) Download boot and recovery imgs(these are backus from 7.2.1) from this LINK and place in the folder where you have access to fastboot or inside the KFHD_SRTool_v1.2 folder
2.) Use KFHD_SRTool_v1.2 to flash system.img.
3.) Erase userdata and cache
4.) Open a cmd prompt from the folder where you placed the previously downloaded .img's.
Use these cmds:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot boot.img
      fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery recovery.img
5- Reboot.

Those who deserve our thanks:
kinfauns for the how to on backing up and restoring system software.
bazm60 for confirming the method above works.
hellocali626 for bringing to my attention the need to flash boot and recovery images for downgrade.
