How to install RUUs with different CIDs

You won't get Radio S-OFF with flashing this HBOOT. Having this said, even if you enable writeCID function in HBOOT you can't change the CID.

I thought people prefer to install one of the custom ROMs floating around in Development Section and flashing the Radio separately rather than upgrading to ICS using RUUs... well I thought wrong
And for those having problems with CID, here is a workaround:

First thing you need to do is to extract the rom.zip file from the RUU. I believe Shen posted a video on XDA-TV showing this, here is a quick how-to however:

  1. Open the RUU.
  2. After Welcome screen shown up, open %temp% in explorer (ie. Meta/Win-Key + R, type %temp% and press enter)
  3. Sort items by Date modified and open the most recent modified folder having a GUID name (ie. something like {3F99782F-1E57-40F2-9F33-D48C3DC171C5})
  4. Search for rom.zip and move/copy it to somewhere else.
  5. Close the RUU.

Now download SigTool and place it beside the rom.zip file. Open Command-Prompt, cd to the right directory and execute the following:

Code:
SigTool rip rom.zip
the expected output is:

[CODE]Creating backup...
Ripping signature...
Done.
****

If you don't know your CID you can get it this way:
While your phone is in bootloader and connected in FASTBOOT-USB mode, execute this:

Code:
fastboot getvar cid
it should output something like cid: T-MOB101

then add a new line (cidnum: <YOURCIDNUM>) below the modelid in android-info.txt so it looks like:

HTML Code:
modelid: PI3920000
cidnum: T-MOB101
...
Save changes and close the editor.

This is important:
In extracted contents you should see a file with hboot name prefix, exclude/take it away and repack other files. I assume you choose rom-new.zip for the archive name.

Now you should null sign (that's how I like to call it) the file:

Code:
SigTool nullsign rom-new.zip
and flash the null-signed rom zip file:

Code:
fastboot flash zip rom-new.zip
when finished, flash the 1.28 hboot you moved away before:

Code:
fastboot flash hboot hboot_*.nb0
Reboot your device.


I know this is not the easiest guide ever but I really don't have enough time to create a one-click tool for this. Needless to say that this is not guaranteed to work and I won't take any responsibilities if you bricked your phone.

Take care

Some dude I know has the official MicroSD-Card that is used by HTC to S-OFF also known as (JAVA/WHITEcard), i will try it on my Sensation XL next week.

It works like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLFqGKzrtyg
Only this card is a MicroSD-card, it can be used with a USB Y-Cable and Cardreader on our SXL's

Thats no diffrent to the XTC clip method and has been known for ages. This method is good but requires additional H/W (Y Cable) also an XTC clip is very expensive. You can also use LGTool to S-Off device but like the XTC clip. An SETool box and activation card are very expensive. (About 150GBP).

You need S-Off for that method to work.

Lock your bootloader, then flash an S-Off hboot. You wont get bootloader error then.

Guys please be careful when playing with HBOOT, Radio, etc.

Here is the easy way to unbrick:

1. Flash your unlock token on 1.28 if it's (re)locked.
2. Boot into a working recovery.
3. Download this and push it to /tmp (adb push fardjadb_runnymede.nb0 /tmp)
4. get into adb shell and execute dd if=/tmp/fardjadb_runnymede.nb0 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
5. reboot bootloader
6. Download this and flash it to the misc partition (fastboot flash misc supermisc)
7. fastboot reboot-bootloader
8. Install a stock RUU
* As alfchin said, if you want to flash RUUs with different CIDs, extract the zip, open android-info.txt, change CID, repack and flash with fastboot flash zip ...

_ Please check your link soon. Tks

I don't have my computer with me for a while, why don't you use unlimited.io HBOOTs? They also by pass the CID check.

If you already have my HBOOT installed, you can upgrade to unlimited.io ones by executing fastboot flash hboot <NAME OF THE FILE> or following the instructions in their website.

Anyways if you really need sigtool, you can compile it from the source code.
