You probably oughta know how to get your phone into bootloader before you run task 29; didn't you do that after flashing hard spl just to see if the flash worked?

I've tried the 'format nand' command with raphdiag, and all it did was hard reset the device. It didn't wipe the OS rom, like T29 does. I tried it 2 or 3 times, and had the same result each time. I may have been doing something wrong, I guess.

thank you @ benjamminzIS

I tried this trick (using bootscreen file for Raphael) on my Touch Pro & able to flash new Rom on it via USB.

Thanks for your great contribution.

Can anyone confirm that there is no hard reset required after flashing a new rom (just after using task29) or is it advisable to still do a hard reset after flash completes?

I've never heard spoken about this tool before... but you say all that it's a awesome tool, so, I must try it.

So, if I've understood well, it works like a Low Level Format for a HDD ? But in case of the Raphael, the memory doesn't need to be formated to improve the performances. Format an USB drive does improve its performances ?

Edit: Thanks to Ben who lead me here with the link in his signature.

I don't know about the diamond2, if it is basically a rhodium without a keyboard than I would think it would work, you just need to use a diamond2 splash screen or radio to try...

not so much like a low level format, but rather than just overwriting files over and over and over and over with flashing new roms and doing flash dance, it deletes everything before you flash so that you have a "fresher" start...

New Tool for us Flashaholic
I just stumble over a new tool called Flashaholic, over at the hd2 thread.
appelflap had made a app called Flashaholic.
You will find the original thread >Here<
Quote:

- Description:
FlashaholicRUU (FRUU) is a customized version of the HTC Rom Update utility that will simplify the rom update proces by:
1. automatically performing a task29 before updating a rom
2. allowing the user to navigate through the dialog windows without having to check checkboxes (s)he has seen a gazillion times before.
3. allowing the user to use only the keyboard to go through the dialog boxes (enter -> next window, esc -> quit fruu)

How to use it:

Quote:

This program will take you through the steps of performing a Task29 (formatting your roms storage memory) and then flashing a new rom. It is not advised to use this if you are totally new to flashing roms as if it is done incorrectly you will end up with no rom on your phone and a permanent look of terror on your face

This is not for noobs!!

1. Make sure your phone is booted up

2. Sync your pc and phone<

3. Copy the FlashaholicRUU.exe file to a new folder with JUST the roms .nbh file present (nothing else)

4. Run the FlashaholicRUU.exe and follow the instructions in the program

5. Click on the "perform task29" button to format your roms memory

6. As soon as the percentage bar reaches 100% hold your "volume down" button and continue holding until the phone reboots and enters the bootloader screen
NOTE: If you get a white screen with "hTC" in the middle then you need to take out your battery and enter bootloader mode manually before continuing (take battery out and put it back in, then hold the volume down button and briefly press the power button. Keep holding the volume down button until the bootloader screen appears).

7. When the white box in the bottom of the bootloader screen says "USB" then click on "Flash Rom" in the Flashaholic program

8. Follow the onscreen instructions and lastly click on "Flash" to flash the rom to your phone

9. You will now have a percentage bar on your phone and your new rom is being flashed

10. Once your Rom has flashed your phone will reboot and you can go through the setup screens.

Run your new Rom for a few hours, search for another one and start again with step 1 (if you want to become a real senior flashaholic)

NOTE: There is no need to perform a Hard Reset after flashing the Rom using this program as the Task29 performs a much more thorough job.

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

When you want to flash a rom without performing task 29 (for example when you want to flash a new radio) just hit <ESC> on the first screen of step 1. This will take you right to step 2 in which you can flash your rom

(Thanks to mskip for writing this brief but comprehensive manual)

Since this app are using the Task29, I just modified the .nbh file, so that we (Raphael-users) can use this app.
The .nbh file I'm using is empty, that means that it does not contain
a single file or image.

I'm posting the modified app here, because I think that benjamminzIS has done
a great job already with Task29.

And for does how will find this app usefull, don't forget about the man
behind this, and give him a Thanks ---->Here

...ps: Read post 6, in the installation instructions
