Your here cause something went wrong right? Ok thats fine. This list isnt extensive but its here to provide quick answers to some weird or common questions. New questions and problems are added to the bottom.
Q: Will this downgrade my hboot
A: No. I used to have an hboot downgrade but it was bricking peoples phones. However is you want to risk bricking your device, visit this thread here
. I I advise against this. This bricked alot of phones which is why I pulled it.
Q: How do I install the Hboot Drivers
A: Check this here
Q: I get "error: more than one device and emulator"
A: kill the adb.exe tasks in task manager or reboot your computer
Q: Step #9 my phone does read the PC36IMg.zip
A: If you renamed the zip file make sure it doesn't say PC36IMG.zip in the name remember that xp and up on windows doesn't show the file ext by default so if you see PC36IMG.zip chances are its named PC36IMG.zip.zip
Q: Why cant I use Clockwork Recovery
A: At the moment its not coded for the new partitions. Just read the first few pages of this thread or check this here
Q: What Hardware does this work for
A: All currently known hardware 0001-0004
Q: What Hboot's does this work for
A: It was built for 2.02 and 2.10 however it will work for all version its just there are easier ways for those
Q: I think I messed up can I just start over.
A: Yes. Its recommended if you want to start over run the official ruu.
Q: This is very complicated
A: It is...thats why there is instructions
Q: Will this erase my data
A: Yes but not from the SDCARD
Q: Can I deleted the files off my SDCARD when done
A: Yes, except for RSA_OEM.KEY and WIMAX.IMG
Q: I get permission denied or device offline when trying to step 10
A: Check here
this might work for you
Q: I used clockwork it seems to work fine.
A: It might but considering the partition information is not correct. You may have just over wrote your wimax keys and broke 4G. Have fun with that like this poor guy here
Q: This uses unrevoked in one of its steps? Explain?
A: There have been some concerns that this uses unrevoked-forever in one of its steps. As far as we know that Unrevoked 3 (not to be conufused with unrevoked-forever) is causing some radio issues with hardware in general and new hardware. Unrevoked-forever does not appear to bork the radio like unrevoked 3 does. This is apparent by the many success stories. However Unrevoked3 could very well possibly destroy your radio/wimax/brick if used.
Q: I get device not found
A: Install the drivers for your phone, (Unrevoked, ADB)
Q: Camera doesnt work after doing this
A: Flash a new rom thats current. Like SteelRom, Fresh, Stock Rooted. The issue here is the Hardware is different. NO CUSTOM KERNELS
A2: Reports say they changed the camera provider/hardware. And the drivers are different! Using a rom based off the latest release and kernel should fix it As Discussed here
Q: When I go to recovery. I get a red triangle.
A: See Step 10
Q: This doesnt work!
A: Yes it does if you follow the directions, Unless some other bull**** decided to popup!
Q: CM6.x doesnt work
A: See Question 7....Nothing I can do about that if the kernel doesnt support your camera/device.
Q: My phone boot loops now...You broke my ****!
A: I didnt break your ****. You broke your own ****! Its not broken so chill out (well it might be but probably not). What rom did you flash? Did you flash a custom kernel? Did your rom come with a custom kernel? I bet your using a custom kernel. Try a rom like Steel Rom, Sprint Lovers
Q: How do I back up my RSA Keys
A: Check here
for the latest up to date information. Or run this command from the shell
cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 > /sdcard/wimax.img
Q: My 4g Doesnt work
A: Was it broken prior to the s-off, what steps did you take. Are you running AOSP ROM or Another kernel?, Did you try a different rom? What version is your phone? Do you have SwitchPro Widget installed? (uninstall it), Did you try to run unrevoked3 prior to this? After flashing the radios and stock kernel based rom did you do a data and prl update? Does the mac behind your battery match whats in about phone (4g has to be on to see mac) Also try the tree.xml fix posted
look for a file with your macaddress ending in .tree.xml. you want to move that to another location so it gets regenerated. (the following command basically renames it.)
mv /data/misc/wimax/(Your-mac-address).tree.xml /data/misc/wimax/(Your-mac-address).tree.xml.old
4. Start 4G may not connect
5. Do a prl/profile update
6. Power off the phone and power it back on. Try it
7. PRL/Profile. Try it
Q: 4G is still broke.
A: Check your RSA keys
cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 | grep RSA
returned output show appear as this:
# cat /dev/mtd/mtd0 | busybox grep RSA
cat mtd0 | busybox grep RSA
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
It should look just like the above
the important lines are BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY and END RSA PRIVATE KEY.
If you have those two lines, your keys are still likely to be intact.
If those two lines are missing, your keys are likely missing.
/dev/mtd/mtd0 is where the wimax image is stored.
Q: OK I think My Keys are tossed. We made a backup right? So how do I restore it?
A: This post
should do it for you
Q: My Phone says its not rooted.
A: If you have s-off your rooted. Simple as that. Try a different rom if you want. The second pc36img.zip file you flashed is Sprint Lovers
and is a very nice rooted rom.
Q: When I try to get into Fastboot by pressing VOLUME UP and booting the phone, my phone instead buzzes three times and acts dead. What happened?
A: The S-OFF update also enables Qualcomm Diagnostics mode on your phone, which is entered by doing what you just did. You can exit this mode (and boot normally) by removing the battery and USB cable.
Q: Can you tell me what this does?
A: Read the guide? Basically your downgrading the phone, so you can flash unrevoked because htc "comically fixed" the phone. Then your re upgrading the phone back to shipping radios, system, pri, nv, kernel...all the while with keeping s-off
Q: How did you get to be so cool
A: If you have it, you don’t need it. If you need it, you don’t have it. If you have it, you need more of it. If you have more of it, you don’t need less of it. You need it to get it. And you certainly need it to get more of it. But if you already don’t have any of it to begin with, you can’t get any of it to get started. Which means you really have no idea how to get it in the first place, do you? You can share it, sure. You can even stockpile it if you like. But you can’t fake it. Wanting it, needing it, wishing for it. The point is, if you’ve never had any of it, ever, people just seem to know.
Q: Do you really own a vette?
A: Yes, and a backpack with jets!
Q: Whats with you and the dots ...
Q: Your Kind of an Cocky Asshole
A: Yea...I Get that. Oh well. I cant fix stupid or ignorant.
