Nope. Can't mount sd card in TWRP either. Box isn't checkable. Still stuck on trying to install the zip files. Also interesting to note, factory reset from within twrp fails too, with the same errors.

Thanks to abhipati, Inflated Titan, and others. I had a number of problems flashing my ROM after using the newly created 2.20 root method (woohoo! I was so close to selling my HOX and getting a used Gnex), but your answers to noobs' questions helped me out a lot. Thanks!

I have a question about TWRP for people that rooted using the new exploit for 2.20: will restoring a backup work for us if the kernel is different?

Say someone installed CM10 and made a full backup in TWRP. Then, they wanted to try a ROM with an OCed custom kernel, so they flashed the boot.img of the new ROM and installed the ROM in recovery.

But, if they were to switch back to CM10, they have the CM10 backup ready to go - but instead of doing a restore entirely in TWRP, they would first have to flash the CM10 boot.img, and THEN restore their CM10 backup through TWRP, correct?

Thanks!

I'm no noob, but am new to the hox and this is the first HTC phone I've owned that has no s-off. I had a question about whether or not to flash the kernel for every nightly on CM10 and the op answered my question. I will just look at the commits and if nothing kernel related is merged then no reason to flash the kernel.

Thanks for the useful thread bro and hopefully people will use it when they have questions.

Question Unlocked bootloader, now what?

I have a noob question: what happened to my data after I unlocked the bootloader? I knew it would wipe everything (which is fine, I just bought the phone) and was going to reinstall my apps and whatnot. but the "phone storage" is still full when looking in the settings, and photos and things are still there. My question is how to I get all my apps and stuff back?

Also, I have an HTC One XL on 2.20 and I unlocked the bootloader on a mac. I'm thinking ill just use that all-in-one toolkit on a PC for the rest of the process.

Thanks in advance,
-Eric

edit: one more quick question. Do I need to flash Android SDK to my computer and install ADB if I already have "adb.exe" included in the all-in-one toolkit?

Default Unable to mount /sdcard

I'm no pro at this, but I was able to research and find that reformatting the drive resolves this. First, mount the card in TWRP, then click My Computer and find the drive representing the card. Right click it and select 'format.' Select 'FAT32' for the file system, allocation unit size is 4096, uncheck Quick Format. Drop your zips onto the drive and you're on your way.

I'll thank Sir Dog Milk over at HTCEvoHacks for this.
