WOW AFTER AGES>>>>>>> FINALLY!!!! YAY!!!



First i would like to thank every one who made this possible , im sorry i dont know ur names..

This is what i did i dont know if itll work for every one but fingers crossed....

1. its like the normal rooting procedure except with the boot.img that i have!!! U need the sdk for this to work!!

2. Download superhero rom v2: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3Y02RZAT

3. rename as update.zip and place on sdcard.

4. Shutdown phone.

5. Download: http://rapidshare.com/files/24898357...ry-RAv1.0H.img

6. place this img in the tools folder of the sdk.

7. Start phone in fastboot mode (power+voulme)

8. from the fastboot menu in cmd restart phone with the boot image provided above. (c:\sdk\tools fastboot boot recovery-RAv1.0H.img).


UPDATE:: DO A NANDROID BACKUP THEN USE THE BOOT.IMG THAT WAS BACKED UP BY NANDROID (ON YOUR SD CARD) FOR STEP NUMBER 12/13/14..


9. wipe data and update .

10. reset phone but remove battery when the rogers sign comes on.

11. go to flashboot mode again.

12. .......... use backed up boot.img

13. place this in the tools directory of the sdk

14. in cmd again flash the boot image (c:\sdk\tools fastboot flash boot boot.img)

15. Now reboot and thats it ur done!!!!



NO WIFI!!!! NO BLUETOOTH IN THE SUPER HERO ROM AM TRYING OTHER ROMS... I THINK THIS METHORD SHOULD WORK AN ALL ROMS NOW... maybe not....

after trying for a while only superhero works not the hero by haykuro... dunno why it keeps restarting at the htc splash screen....

lol to fix wifi find out whos boot.img you stole () and take the wlan.ko from /system/lib/modules and throw it over the one in the build.

sign, package, fly.
EDIT:
also, in default.prop (within the boot.img) change it ro.secure to 0 if you want rooted adb shell :P
Code:
ro.secure=0
ro.allow.mock.location=0
ro.debuggable=1
persist.service.adb.enable=1
heh.. this is why sometimes you should wait before just throwing an incomplete build out

Yes, it works. Since June 8th ;)
But daldroid-recovery is really a quick-mod of haykuro's one, so thank him (and others, I only mentioned him and a few others in a readme file in the ramdisk image)

I'm happy to see that someone else started releasing roms for pvt 32A board, because I was really busy and used all of my sparetime to try to rebuild a working kernel (Hero is running on my phone since 3 weeks, untested-bluetooth-fix, wlan fix, but still no working kernel, no iptables, so no release).

Going abroad for a few days, I'm sure I'll come back and be able to download your (or Haykuro's) new rom with a new built-from-sources-working-kernel for pvt32A ;)

Greetings
Daldroid
