I wonder how accurate the report about chips are? I have tha "bad" one, and I HTCDEV unlocked, tried to downgrade to 2.2.1. at least 25 times and failed..then I relocked the bootloader... downgraded to Froyo, s-off, rooted...flashed MANY ROMS, and not to mention flashing 20+ Roms while it was HTC unlocked & manually flashing the boot.img thru fastboot..but my point is, I've put this phone through hell and back, and its held up just fine. I sometimes wonder if there is something very small & seemingly insignificant that people do that causes the emmc chip to fail? If they were that sensitive, mine would have been gone as much abuse as I've put it through...OR I have been very lucky....

Not necessarily. Some of the chips have failed after one of two flashes(including the original), some outlast the other hardware on the phone. Its probably a Quality Control issue more than anything.

i suspect it has to do with clockworkmod recovery and this phone.

I used to get those errors but i switched over to that ext4 recovery and no problems since then...

and i have the bad chip too!

I'm not saying you are right or wrong, because I don't know. But I do know that I have tried both CWM & 4EXT recovery, and I also spent a whole day testing 4ext with maxx, and he truly works hard to make sure his recovery is the best. The most complaints I've heard have been with CWM. I'm not saying its CWM, but I use 4ext only now. It's faster, more responsive & hasn't let me down yet.

Ummm, I'm not sure if I should be happy or pleased, but my result on my N7000 came up different to everyone else's:

cat /proc/kmsg | grep 'mmc0:0001'
<6>[ 1.104827] mmcblk0: mmc0:0001 VYL00M 14.6 GiB

No-one has mentioned that chip so far -

I've had no problems what so ever I should add.

Any idea what this chip is like? I currently have ICS StuNNeR - 1.4.26.1 installed and I'm not sure what my best course of action is. .. Should I change the kernel, go back to a GB ROM?

BTW, The phone was rooted without Odin originally and I haven't used Odin or any flashing to install CWM, or any other ROMs since. I dont' know if that changes anything

Hi.

I'm new in Mt4g and I'm a bit confused about what to do. I got the bad emmc chip and it's in GB 2.3.4.

What's the main difference between gfree and visionary?

I read gfree instructions but it uses visionary application to get temproot, is this method still gfree, and not visionary? Or visionary is just the root.sh method?

My phone is carrier unlocked also, is there any advantage on this root proccess?

My only interest is to use unnofficial roms because I suppose they are better.

I won't be able to return my phone as I don't live in USA, may I try root it?

Appreciate any help.

Don't want to sound rude but I have flashed the **** out of my mytouch 4g. Tried like 6 roms just this week and I have the bad eMMC. I have been swapping rooms like I change shirts going back and forth between different gingerbread rooms to ics and I have literally no issues. Eventually this phone will be replaced as I'll upgrade to a gnexus but my point is should all that emmc paranoia stop you from enjoying your rooted device??
