anyways
thanks for all your help

No problem, sofar I have just encountered this md5sum not found myself once and a reboot fixed this. I highly doubt HTC removed basic commands like env, grep and find :s

Just make sure auto temp root on boot is not checked, better yet check nothing just do permroot. Leaving Visionairy+ installed or not shouldn't make any difference as the permrooting should have succeeded and the module it used should still be in place at /data/local/.

You were at the check step still too iirc. If you are, check Visionairy+ options and make sure no options are checked. Maybe permroot again just to be sure and reboot to double check... But only if you didn't invoke the hboot script yet.

Same counts for others with the same problem.

Can those people also cat /proc/version and report back please?


Also you might need to run adb as root (sudo adb shell) if you get permission denied on you PC instead of phone. If you get permission denied on your phone inside the adb shell it looks like some files are missing, but I doubt that even find and grep are missing... Must be something todo with path setup incorrectly if you can post the output of env here that would help.


That's really weird because I just booted into bootloader and it says S-OFF already?

Well if it tells you S-OFF already thats fine, but you did continue after check threw up md5sum not found this is bad. Could you explain to me the steps you took after check? Backup then hboot and they all threw up md5sum not found?

Also could you do something for me in the terminal?

su
env
ls /system

Does env show you PATH? If so please post PATH and post what ls /system shows you, it should show you a bin and xbin folder and can you then check what the contents are of the bin and xbin folders?

ls /system/bin > /sdcard/bin.txt
ls /system/xbin > /sdcard/xbin.txt

And attach both text files to your post here please they will be in the root of your sdcard.

I'm getting this problem of md5sum not being found as well. I've done a search for it and it appears to be in /system/xbin, but if I try and run it from there with "/system/xbin/md5sum" it still says it's not found.
I've done all the Visionary stuff and have permaroot.

Any suggestions?

You mean if you can still use OTA updates? It should be possible to use them, but give it a few days and more custom ROMs will surface and hopefully CyanogenMod too.

I'm not sure if OTA updates will include a new HBOOT, but I doubt that will happen tho.

No, after the checks came up saying Md5sum not found, I just pushed back on terminal and exited.

Heres the other things you wanted,

Can you try this:

export PATH=/system/xbin:/system/bin:$PATH

And then invoke md5sum again.

If that doesn't work, please turn off fastboot, powercycle the phone (off and then on, not a reboot) and try again starting with md5sum.

How does your bootloader show S-OFF when you had only run the check script baffles me.

Can you try this too:

export PATH=/system/xbin:/system/bin:$PATH
md5sum

And report back if it worked.

I did root with the evostance maybe that did it? Otherwise I have no idea?
