Hey guys,

im pretty done at the moment.

I'm trying to get back to stock on my HTC Sensation and already spent like 3 hours to get it.

So, my current infos:

unlocked
s-on
hboot 1.27
ARHD custom rom
ext4 custom recovery

So, i downloaded equals roms from here: http://www.shipped-roms.com/index.ph...&model=Pyramid (equals with the ARHD rom, i already tried others, but it still fails)

but i dont know what to do now.

When i relock bootloaded it fails, when im on ROM the itself it fails.

What should i do actually? i followed this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1672425

But i dont get it - do i really need s-off to go back to stock?

Isnt there an easier way to do it? im pretty done at the moment and simply want to have it stock, help me guys...

// PS my CID is this: VODAP102 and i already tried to run this: RUU-Pyramid-ICS-Vodafone-DE-3.32.162.11-R-Radio-11.69A.3504.00U-11.23.3504.07-M2-release-251539-signed but it says wrong image... i will throw this thing on the wall soon

if your firmware is higher then the one which is in the ruu.exe then you can't downgrade while on S-ON
you need to S-OFF for downgrade
AFAIK with your cid there is no ruu.exe with the same firmware as yours or higher

what about if you try create a goldcard first..then you can flashing different RUU that are already had a higher firmware version than yours..?, like this RUU maybe..or else that are already had 3.33.xxx.xx firmware?
don't forget to relock your bootloader first too..

You could also attempt to downgrade your misc partition that would allow you to flash a lower RUU as long as the hboot inside was not a gingerbread downgrade I think.
