Hello,

I have S-OFF sensation with 1.27 Revolutionary HBOOT. I wanted to change it to Engineering SPL HBOOT but I can't find anything related to 1.27, only this: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/HTC_Sensation:_Support_Downloads

I is ok to flash it over 1.27? Or there is better method?


Thanks in advance.


//please delete i figured it by myself.

that hboot is of gingerbread one ..and flashing it would result in bootloop of your current OS

the revolutionary hboot is a patched semi eng-hboot (it has all the important features of eng-hboot patched to it ) ..no need to change it

i don't think so, revolutionary didn't had all features I wanted. So the process was flash 1.17 (yes bootloops) -> do anything -> flash 1.27.

revolutionary hboot was full ENG hboot v1.17.1100 and all fastboot commands worked. What features didnt it have?

I had issue with 'fastboot oem emapiWlanMac'. Can't post log now, but it was throwing errors, all went fine with 1.17.2008 SPL.

Yeah I was dissapointed a bit, because I've heard that 1.27.1100 had full support but np for me :good:.
