Enjoy!

In case you need it after the process completes successfully:

Flash your recovery using 'fastboot'. Do not ask here how to use FASTBOOT, there's a million tutorials for it if you just search a bit.

The livecd will now ask you to optionally install CWM-AlphaRev Recovery 2.5.1.8. This -should- support PVT4 models as well.

---

AlphaRev 1.8 has been released. This features:

-improved logic
-on-screen progress (on the phone)
-optional recovery installation
-multiple device support

---

More new HBOOTS have been released for bravo.

-PVT4 support
-6.93.1002 version numbering (better recognition)
-Downgrade protection (cannot be overwritten by a RUU, unless you flash a downgrader HBOOT first.)
-Misc is supported to be flashed through fastboot (for usb unbricking or mainver downgrading)
-SuperCID patched, never need a goldcard again with these hboots. You can now safely flash a RUU, your HBOOT will not be overwritten.

-New sizes for Oxygen and CM7 HBOOT, indicated by the 'r2' tag.

Everyone is advised to upgrade to these new HBOOTS, even when you are using the stock partition table.

Make sure to verify the MD5SUM listed in the table right before you're about to flash these images!
If you don't, and the file is corrupt, you WILL brick your bootloader.

After having problems installing this here is what helped for me.

Well i flashed a stock rooted Sense 2.2 rom. Then ran the .iso in VirtualBox and now i have S-OFF. Not sure whether it was the rom or the VirtualBox part that helped but i'm done now!

I think it could potentially be a problem with our burnt ISO files. I think VirtualBox sorted it for me.

Mine sat on stage 3 for around half an hour before my phone turned off. Will not turn back on will not charge or anything. Tried removing sim and memory card. Still no life.

Words cannot describe how i feel right now. I read the disclaimer so i guess it's my own fault!

    Hey Guys,

    Im pretty new to the hole flashing rom's ect. Is there a screenshot/video tutorial to flash hboot?

    /Martin

    Flash it using a PB99IMG.zip from HBOOT.

    I'm adding zipfiles to the website (which should be renamed to PB99IMG.zip on /sdcard)

    If you then enter HBOOT, it asks you to flash that. Unfortunately there's no selecting a zipfile, it's just rename the correct one to PB99IMG.

    But honestly, why in the hell would you need to flash radios all the time? (Especially on-the-go)

    Thank you.

    I missed it with all the noise on the Oxygen thread.

    For info, from there http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=10125671&postcount=9383

    The first few HBOOTS are raw sizes, Oxygen is the only one with YAFFS2 sizes listed. Thats simply because Oxygen came much later :p

    I'll adjust the other ones to show actual YAFFS2 size.
