Please excuse my absence. I will not be watching this thread for the time being. Hopefully if you have any questions, they can be answered by using the search option or someone else with this device that happens to check this thread will be kind enough to help.

!#I'M BACK#!

soon enough we won't need this thread, because we will all be able to RUU lol-Dec 6, 2013


posted on rumrunner.us. should work for both primou and primoc. Note, it is highly recommended (mandatory?) to be on a normal sense-based ICS rom and using an unsecure (preferably stock based) kernel. If you get poor results with other configurations, don't bother asking for help please!

S-OFF is here rumrunner.us

Huge thanks to beaups

This rom is probably most compatible with rumrunner

The boot.img inside is unsecure so flash away and GO GET S-OFFED!!!

Here's the unsecure boot.img that I used to achieve s-off.

Added init.d support

Added Root Permissions with Chainfire's SuperSu

This ROM was cooked with dsixda's Android Kitchen

Thank you and credit goes out to the both of them.

I have posted this ROM for safetynet/fall-back purposes.

I've noticed fellas posting please help, I forgot/didn't make a backup.

This is for you. Worried and maybe even a little scared that your phone is now a beautiful paper weight.

This ROM is completely stock with added init.d support and root.

It is still odexed, and with stock kernel.( I'm still learning/attempting to build one with extra governors and over clocking abilities ).

Instructions below....

1. Unlock your Bootloader by following the instructions at htcdev

1a. If you've succesfully unlocked your Bootloader, that means you have your fastboot files on your PC and know in general how to use them.

2. Download an openrecovery of your choice. I personally use TeamWinRecoveryProject 2.2.0 without any issues at all. (See the attached File)

3. Place the recovery.img that you have chosen into your fastboot folder.

3a. Change the name of the .img to recovery.img (just easier that way when sending the flash command)

4. Now open a terminal while in the fastboot folder.

4a. On Windows- hold shift+right click the mouse then click open command terminal here.

4b. On Ubuntu- CTRL+ALT+T to open a terninal then cd fastboot.

5.
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img​

5a. ^^^^^ Type this into the terminal. ^^^^^

5b. You now have a custom/openrecovery. ;)

6. After the recovery.img is flashed, reboot your Bootloader.

6a.
fastboot reboot-bootloader​

7. After booted back into bootloader, use your volume-down button to highlight Recovery.
Now press your Power button to select it.

7a. Now your are in Recovery!

8. Click Wipe, then Cashe, then Dalvick, then Factory Rest, then System.

8a. This will wipe all of your phone nice and clean for a fresh install.

9. Click Home, then Install, and find the ROM.zip, click it, then install. Let it finish installing the click Wipe Cashe/Dalvick.

10. Navigate back to the Home screen and click Reboot, then Bootloader

10a. I hope you have a copy of the ROM.zip on your PC.

11. Open the ROM.zip and copy/extract the boot.img from inside it and place it in your fastboot folder.

12. Open a terminal once again.

13.
fastboot flash boot boot.img​

13a. Let it finish.

14.
fastboot reboot​

15. Enjoy.


These instructions are for use with TWRP (TeamWinRecoveryProject) They may be different using CWMrecovery (ClockWorkMod).

I made a backup of my stock rom via twrp. Updated the kernel and installed shpongle. When I tried to go back to my stock via twrp it would not boot due to the kernel. I wonder if that will be the case here

Whatcha looking at?

u flashed shpongle? that means u are GSM not CDMA so this ROM just simply won't work

as for returning to stock, u can always flash a sense kernel duh :p

I'll cross reference the updater-script to another one I've used on a different Rom I cooked and have been running for over two weeks..... See if there are any differences between the two.

wont flash for me, i get:
"error executing updater binary in zip
and
error flashing zip

going to try a full format of the sd card...

Ok I found a difference in the updater-script, the update binaries are identical so that shouldn't be the issue. Problem I have is that I don't have a working computer to fix the updater-script. It won't be until June 26th that I can apply it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

P.S. are you flashing with TWRP?

Yes sir, TWRP. and no worries, it apparently just isn't your ROM. Angry HTC and jmz's stock ROM both give the same error. even after a full format of the SD. Rhythmic Rom 1.4 works though, and is what I was running. Was trying to return the device to somewhat stock tho as im either going to sell it or let my gf use it, so I was hoping for stable and to have the charge LED and icons working, hopefully.

If you downgrade TWRP to 2.3 you should be fine.

    Just a heads ups to the guys anticipating s-off

    This rom has an unsecure boot.img inside it that I used while going through the process with beaups.

    I was also rocking this ROM during the process....

    Just throwing it out there.
