What's up everyone. I had a stock One but needed to get my crackflash on so I bought a rooted One online.

So here are my questions 1) how can I tell what recovery is installed 2) how can i tell if the bootloader is unlocked?

And before you ask, I bought it third party so I wasn't able to get the info from the seller.

Thanks

Boot to hboot to see if the bootloader is unlocked. With the phone off hold vol down and power at the same time, untill a white screen appears (hboot). It will say at the top either locked, unlocked, or relocked. Then from hboot scroll down to recovery and select it with the power button. Once in recovery it wil say at the top which one it is and what version.

Thanks so much! Any suggestion on which recovery to use? I've read pros and con's of each. I'll prolly flash Vipers ROM.

I prefer TWRP. It has a nicer ui, and it backs up and restores a good 3 to 4 times faster than cwm.

That's what I'm used to. Can I just flash it in recovery or would I need to adb it over? I think the last time I had a rooted phone I flashed twrp via ROM manager

Best way to flash TWRP is via fastboot. Follow instructions here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2416431

You could also use Root Recovery Tools - Flasher from the market as well. If you have a usb-otg adapter you can also flash it thru hboot as a PN07IMG.zip. And you can also flash it thru fastboot RUU mode.

Don't mean to hijack the thread but I had a quick question- what's the difference between doing an RUU and just flashing the stock OTA rom?

An ota updates not only the rom, but also all the other system images (bootloader, radio, recovery, and many other behind the scenes partitions.) Also obviously the ruu will not be pre rooted like the rom.

Got the phone today and the bootloader is unlocked. It has Clockwork installed. Its not the latest, any real reason to upgrade it?
