i got an external charger and 3 extra generic batterys on ebay for about $30 so i wont ever ben in that situation. i dont like charging my phone during the day so i just go until it shuts off then put in a new battery.

ive heard of people hacking up usb cables to directly power the phone,but thats not something id really reccomend.

at any rate youre good to be caustious,an hboot flash is NOT a time that you want to run out of battery

Ok so today i brought an HTC dock charger with a extra slot to charge the battery alone, so i charge that puppy up, put the battery back in with the file you gave me to put on my sd card and bootloader comes on does its checking the file and loaded the update ask me to press yes and BAM it took 5 mins to do its process and rebooted itself and now back to where it was when i first brought it, damn so thx you Scotty for the help and guide, so can youo tell me a method to use to root it back,

theres a video here on android forums: http://androidforums.com/thunderbolt...s-updated.html

it will give you a permanent s-off hboot and flash clockwork recovery. tehre is a download for a superuser.zip that you will flash in recovery. then you will see the superuser app in your drawer after flashing that .zip/

the market will only have the superuser app,youll need the matching binary files. the superuser app is linked on revolutionarys page,you must flash that in recovery to become rooted.


from: the revolutionary website:

Does Revolutionary give me root?
No. You will need to flash this this zipfile from recovery.

We were wrong.

Newer hboots (like the one in stock, hboot version 1.04.0000) flash/check images in an way that prevents the phone from encountering a SECURITY WARNING mid flash. This is good, prevents us from bricking.

Older hboots, like the one in 1.03.605.10 (hboot version 0.95.0000) on the otherhand do not, and flashing over custom firmware with them can lead to the dreaded SECURITY WARNING. This firmware is from January 3rd, is buggy and well should not be used for any reason outside of initail root. Avoid it.

A tester helping develop a one click root encountered this today, he tried to downgrade from custom firmware.

So, do not downgrade below 1.12.605.6 without a reason, if you do understand how to recover. You most likely have no reason to be on old firmware at this point, outside of initial root.


If you have a SECURITY WARNING, don't freak.

Recovering from this error:

Until we have newer RUUs, you only have one maybe two chances to do this. Since you obviously know how to flash an RUU, I am not going to go through the
process again.

Flashing this firmware the stock (1.12.605.6) firmware will fix this error.

However if you get a MAIN VERSION HIGHER error while flashing, you only have one choice to recover, by flashing the newer than stock (1.12.605.9) firmware.

or you could just put forth a lil effort into finding your own RUUs,as those are extremely old anyway-no where near the current firmware.

mecha ruus can be found:
footbals folder

shipped roms.com

or on http://www.androidpolice.com by searching for the build number
