This is a 100% pure stock kernel with write protection removed. I recompiled it with the write protection option disabled. There are NO OTHER CHANGES to the HTC code.




Info
  • Note: Breaks exFAT! HTC booby trapped the code! Use Fat 32 and you will be ok
  • V2 Change - Added the rest of the stock modules so you can jump to and from any kernel.
  • This is not a module to disable write protection. This is an actual rebuild of source.
  • The only change made was a changing a yes to a no to disable the write protection.
  • This is ONLY for Verizon base 1.55.506.2
  • The RAM Disk also grants ADB as root and supports init.d if busybox is installed in the /xbin folder.
  • Built with HTC recommend tool chain of gcc 4.6


Big thanks to @flar2 for advising me on what I need to disable.


Feel free to use this as you will for any reason you see fit.

When I say stock, I dont mean stock from HTC but compiled as pure stock from HTC source with zero changes to the code other than the disabling of write protection which is not actually in the code, its in the config. Unless of course you consider the config part of the code. Which in that case there is one code change and that is in the config

I just want to re-iterate that this is just for a Verizon based 1.55.506.2 ROM. You must have proper stock modules installed. If you installed a custom kernel for another build you may have issues.


Once again, this is for a stock build 1.55.506.2 Verizon ROM!

This is the kernel included in your clean Rom? I want to try a different kernel but like to have the stock ready so I don't have to reflash the whole Rom

No the kernel in CleanROM is the HTC compile kernel from the same source.

This kernel (I downloaded the source and made the Write Protect edit) compiled it myself.

This kernel does not include the WiFi module. Make sure if you have flashed another kernel the WiFi module did not get over written.

I am going to upload a new version tonight that will add in the stock WiFi module; My initial intent was only to be used on a stock based ROM not as a fall back for kernel hopping. But I will add the extra stock modules so it can be used as a fall back kernel as well. Then everyone will be happy ;c)

Nice, I was looking for a stock recovery flashable kernel with WP removed on the latest 1.55.605.2 base. Awesome. Thanks for this!
