Although I do not own an HTC device any longer, I know from experience how frustrating and hard it can be to root it. Therefore I have created this simple guide to help anyone who is struggling with creating a goldcard and downgrading their device, for newbies and veterans alike.
***IMPORTANT: NEW Goldcard website, provided by Gene Poole
See Post #2 For The Guide
*** A HUGE THANK YOU TO Gene Poole. He has created a script to create your own gold card image (see step 4 in guide) - all rights to this script are his. Thank you also to Operator 3 for the mini guide on how to use the gcard.exe, thanks also to glevitan for responding so promptly to image requests on the thread
***IMPORTANT: To find your CID:
Use Goldcard Helper from the play store: (Found Here)
Open ASTRO File Manager
Navigate to sys/class/mmc_host/mmc2/mmc2:0001 (you’ll find that 0001 will be different on your device)
Long press on the CID file
Select Open As and then Text
Select File Editor
You’ll be given a long number, make a note of this.
Scroll Down For Guide, and don't forget to thank me if I helped
