Hey guys, I recently attempted to root my old phone using the Amaze All in One Kit v5.2. Well, I was able to get the bootloader unlocked and installed TWRP recovery, but was unable to get any roms to load. I was advised I should relock the bootloader and attempt to do a RUU flash since my phone will no longer boot past the HTC screen. Since I relocked the bootloader, I have lost access to TWRP recovery entirely. I also tried the PH85IMG file on my SD card, but it doesn't seem to do anything different after installing and verifying.

My current bootloader screen displays the following:
***RELOCKED***
***Security Warning***
RUBY PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.93.0003
eMMC-boot

Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Michael

Flash 4ext recovery and enable smart flash from settings and then flash any ics rom... (4ext has this smart flash feature so even tho you're S-ON you can still flash a rom and the kernel together in twrp recovery only the rom get Flash not the kernel) reason it didn't work for you in the first place..

If you have a hard time flashing 4ext recovery from all in one kit use it.. (REMOVE EVERY FILE INSIDE IT EXCEPT FOR THE ONE CALLED "recovery.img" and place it in your ext_sd card and go to bootloader and follow instructions) unlock the bootloader 1st if it's locked ...

Gotcha. Well, I just got the bootloader unlocked again, but I am unable to flash 4EXT recovery through the all in one software. The only other option I saw involved installing from the phone, but since I can only get to the bootloader and TWRP recovery screen, I'm unsure of how exactly to install it. You will have to excuse my ignorance on this stuff. I'm pretty computer literate, but this rooting stuff has gotten the best of me thus far...

Just follow the things I told in the 2nd para.. Use that zip and flash it from bootloader.. It'll overwrite and flash 4ext recovery

Well, after installing just that file on my SD card and restarting the phone, it went through a file check and parsing phase then when I clicked on recovery it brought back up TWRP. Obviously I'm misunderstanding something.

It does not appear so. TWRP opened up once again when I clicked on recovery from within the bootloader.

I'm also getting this error "Unable to mount eMMC" as well.

Well, cancel that. Finally got the 4EXT recovery flashed. Thanks again for all your help.

I think I was doing something incorrectly. Anyways, I just enabled Smart Flash and went to "install from sdcard". When I select "choose zip from sdcard", I get the error "Can't mount /internal sdcard".
