Default [REF] The DEFINITIVE MTTY Thread!! - Diamond Edition

This is a friendly warning to people who are new to the site/new to the thread.
There has been a LOT of unnecessary posts recently from people who cannot be bothered searching starting
HERE ON PAGE 59 POST 581 onwards.

I will simply not reply or reply with "Search". Why should I help when people cannot be bothered ATTEMPTING to help themselves?

Also anyone thinking of asking either of the following questions:


1: "After task 29, I get this output in MTTY: Total Bad Block in CE: x"
2:
"After task 29, I get this output in MTTY:

ERASE block xxx FAIL !!!
ERASE block xxx FAIL !!!"
(where x is a random number)

This has been asked 100+ times in this thread so this is the final time I will answer:

IT MEANS NOTHING..NADA..ZIP! I have not experienced ANY problem with this output...Please stop asking!

There is a LOT of information in this thread. All you need is the first 4 posts or the search button OR if it is a GENUINE problem post it and I will help!

------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,

Over the last couple of weeks, as all of us flashing junkies are continuously flashing devices there has been an increase in "Strange Problems" which to all intents and purposes are just “clog ups” and “bad flashes”

As we all know MTTY is the key here, but I can say from personal experience that this small piece of software is a MASSIVE pain in the ass to get working, i must have tried 15-20 different “recommended” procedures to get it work and all failed.

But I managed to find a failsafe method of getting MTTY working on Vista AND Windows 7, also x86 AND x64!! (I have all 4 windows installations and the methods detailed below worked on all)

NOTE: WORKS WITHOUT DRIVER INSTALL ON XP

If for some reason you cannot got this to work on XP do the following: (Thanks kgerry!!)

5. Now, run mtty ...

... try again to switch from COM1 to USB and follow the instructions of perfect post 3

Hope it helps ... Kgerry

THANKS to:

lunasea - for providing me with working drivers

and of course to anyone else I forgot.


I hope this helps people!!

Default Driver Installation

Pre-Cursor To Driver Installation – FOR EVERYONE (x64/x86 Vista/Win 7)

This will remove the need for users, x64 in particular, to use “Unsigned Drivers.” Also since in Vista SP2 (x64 & x86) they removed the “F8” options Completely!

Files Needed:
Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider
Remove Watermark V0.8

1: Run the Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider and select “ENABLE TEST MODE” and Press Next
2: There will be a warning to REBOOT, Press “OK”
3: Go Back to Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider Select “Exit” then Click “Next”
4: Run the “Remove Watermark V0.8” for you OS type (x64 or x84)
5: In the Command Window type “Y” and wait for the process to complete
6: Once complete REBOOT your system and begin the driver install

NOTE: If you DO NOT complete the above, some users will need to press "F8" During Bootup - (ANOTHER NOTE FOR x64 USERS, EVERY TIME YOU NEED TO USE MTTY YOU MUST REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER, HIT F8 AND SELECT: "START WINDOWS WITHOUT DIGITALLY SIGNED DRIVER CHECK")

For Info See Post Below:

When u start the computer, keep hitting F8 and it will prompt you if u want to start in safe mode bla bla and in the bottom of that list there is an option that goes something like this:

Start Windows without Digitally signed Driver Check... or sumthing like that...

This is only if u have problems with the x64 driver... like i did... :P


BTW... u made a beautiful how-to man. Great job!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Big thanks to maybeme for providing a host for the images!!

1: Download the relevant drivers for your system attached to this post: these work for both Vista and Win7, all you have to choose is x86 or x64

EDIT: It has been found that with different versions of Windows 7 x64 need different Active Sync Drivers... If you are using Windows x64 please try x64 AS Drivers Win 7 Tested & Working.zip FIRST!!!

2: Connect Device to PC via Active Sync, Once Connected Uncheck USB Connections,DISCONNECT DEVICE then Reboot Computer

3: Bring device into bootloader (Reset + Hold Vol Down), This will show the Red, Blue, Green screen showing "Serial" - Once Computer booted, connect device in bootloader mode to USB, the word "Serial" will change to "USB"

4: Go to "Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager" and select Microsoft Usb Sync in Mobile Devices section (NOTE: This MAY say HTC USB Sync but as long as you select your device!!):



5: Right Click and Select "Properties" then go to Driver tab, then Select "Update Driver"



6: Choose to "Browse Computer For Driver" (the second option):



7: Select "Let Me Pick From A List...." (the second option):



8: Click "Have Disk":



9: Select the folder with downloaded driver From Step 1 and select "wceusbsh.inf" (this is the same file for x86 & x64):



10: You will get back to previous screen, then click Install

10a: WINDOWS 7 ONLY - The Below Warning will appear, Select "Install anyway":



11: The drivers will be successfully installed:



12: When you get back to "Driver Properties" check driver version. If the "Driver Date" has changed from 2nd step (2003 instead of 2007), the installation has been a success:



13: Lastly leave the device connected and in "Bootloader" and reboot you system. Upon Rebooting an "Unknown Device" is installed, this is your HTC device.

Now the Active Sync Drivers are Installed

i must say this is the reason i got my old rom working and stuck with it without wanting to upgrade. this happened to me, and for about 4 days or more the phone kept crashing and needing a hard reset. even changing roms or reloading the same rom didnt fix.
i tried the MTTY thing and it was difficult to get going.

i personally really appreciate writing all this up, because now i will probably go and try another rom, with this thread in the back of my mind if things start acting up.
so thanks!

To be honest, i have NEVER experienced the issues that require MTTY! I have always just flashed from internal storage and never had an issue.

I wrote this because i just wanted to get MTTY working incase i ever do experience it!!

No problem, I personally got sick of trying loads of instructions to have them fail!

Most of my failures were due to drivers and improper installation!

Glad you find this useful!!

I must just say that u might have to watch the x64bit drivers if they are digitally signed... Cuz neither Vista 64 nor Windows 7 64 will let u load or start those drivers if they are not digitally signed.

IF that the case and if u have installed the driver but it says that it has stopped it due to the driver not been Digitally signed u have to start windows vista/7 in "ignore digitally signed drivers" mode.

When u start the computer, keep hitting F8 and it will prompt you if u want to start in safe mode bla bla and in the bottom of that list there is an option that goes something like this:

Start Windows without Digitally signed Driver Check... or sumthing like that...

This is only if u have problems with the x64 driver... like i did... :P


BTW... u made a beautiful how-to man. Great job!
