Default [SOLVED] Overcoming revone error code -6 (full phone details....

Good morning,

I have done substantial searching on the question of overcoming revone failed error code -6 and have tried most of the troubleshooting steps (not all) without success.

However, a consistent trend I saw was the need to provide details about my specific situation, so I wanted to give that a shot before continuing to flail.

Below you'll find my Phone Details, Steps Taken, Steps Not Taken, and Known Potential Issues

Phone Details
If I provided more information than is needed, please forgive the over-thoroughness. If I'm missing something, please let me know.

Carrier: T-Mobile
Build number: 2.24.401.8 CL235216 release-keys
Baseband version: 4A.17.3250.20_10.40.1150.04L
Kernel Version: 3.4.10-g28df0d6 root@abm009 #1 SMP PREEMPT
Android Version: 4.2.2
HTC SDK API Level: 5.34
Software Number: MaximusHD 11.0.0
Statuses: Tampered, Unlocked, S-ON (M7_UL_PVT SHIP S-ON RH, Fastboot
HBOOT: 1.44.0000 June 21 2013, 20:19:45:-1
OpenDSP: v31.120.274.0617
Recovery: TWRP 2.5.0.0
IMAGE CRC Output:
Rpm: 0x78B119F1
Sb11: 0x65B5FF28
Sb12: 0xEF6D89
Sb13: 0xBD185F39
Tz: 0x5B8AB6C5
Radio: 0x13BCF252
Hboot: 0x7B12BD3D
Boot: 0x95994696
Recovery:0x4D812542
System: 0x124B8D8A

Steps Taken
  • HTC One Toolkit (-6 occurs at 4. Prepare Revone)
  • CMD Entry via standard approach (adb shell, cd, chmod 755, etc.). This fails at ./revone -P
  • Attempted chown root: root revone (I'm writing that from memory, I apologize if its is slightly wrong)
  • Reverted from 4.3 to 4.2.2 via MaximusHD 11.0.0
  • Drivers updated via HTC One Toolkit
  • Yes, USB Debugging enabled, fast boot disabled
  • Removed HTC Sync from computer about 20 minutes ago I just discovered I'm now getting Device Not Found errors in CMD after removing Sync. I thought I'd licked this problem, but apparently my success was tied to HTC Sync. However, everything written already was when device was found.

Steps Not Yet Taken
  • Downgraded to 1.24.*.10 and then upgraded to 1.24.*.12 - I'm not entirely clear how to do this.
  • Attempted Rumrunner despite being 1.44 - I read a post where someone had been successful despite their HBOOT, but haven't done it yet.
  • [Edit] Have downloaded M7 TWRP Nandroid Backup CID CWS__001 1.26.502.10.zip but not yet flashed. Assuming I even have that concept right, that you install this by flashing like I did the MaximusHD 11.0.0 ROM

Known Potential Issues
  • Some people have alluded that an OTA HBOOT release of T-Mobile contained an impenetrable block for revone
  • Others have said error code -6 is just a known bug. I'm assuming that would mean I'm **** outta luck?
  • In CMD, I've seen others with "shell@android", but I was getting "root@android"
  • I attempted to run as su, but wasn't entirely clear on how to do that. I didn't get any error messages, so I'm assuming I did it correctly. I believe I performed it as "adb shell su" or perhaps I just did "su" after getting into the shell.

Is this T-Mobile US? Can you post a fastboot getvar all output (minus imei/sn) ?

Revone may have been patched in June 1.44 HBOOT.. and you MAY need to run rumrunner.

Best to try it and see where it goes. Also Firewater S-OFF is another option.

Thanks to both of you. Rumrunner worked like a charm. The delay in trying it was due to driver snafus, but once I got that worked out it was flawless.
