I tried to downgrade via different RUU's to lower firmware's but the HBOOT and Radio versions stay, only the software version downgrades.
I can easily always get back to Unlock Recovery, install Teamwin, and SuperSU for stock ROM afterwards.
I have tried all of the following with no success:
I am sure I am doing all the steps right, got latest HTC driver, only via USB2.0, NO AV, no Firewall, and it just won't work. The furthest I got was with Rumrunner and after pouring first time and a few extra steps I got a WTF are you doing message.
So is it possible anymore, anything else I can try, or is it a dead cause?
Thanks for any help!!!
I did S-Off with rumrunner on both devices, ville and ville C2 and it works.
then go back to stock flashing ICS-Tmobile RUU in fastboot. Flash TWRP 2.3.1 and any Custom rom. Give adb shell rootrights and run
rumrunner and it should work.
