What works
  • Backup
  • Restore
  • Flashing. zips
  • ??



What doesn't work
  • Mass Storage
  • Touch
  • ??



Requirements
  • HTCdev Unlock (Choose "All Other Supported Models" and follow all the directions, including driver install)
  • Rooted


How to flash via phone (Recommended)
  • Download the ClockworkMod recovery.img below and place on the root of the internal sdcard. Make sure to rename to recovery.img if necessary!
  • Download Terminal Emulator from the Market
  • Go into Terminal emulator and type "su" (lowercase, no quotes) and accept the Superuser prompt
  • Then type this exactly (no quotes) "dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22"
  • If should tell you records in and out and then recovery is flashed!
  • To get into recovery, you can type (no quotes) "reboot recovery". You can also access it by pressing Volume Down + Power while booting up, and then choose "Recovery". NOTE: You may need to disable Settings > Power > Fast Boot for this method to work.


How to flash via fastboot
  • I will update instructions later, but if you choose this way, you likely know what you're doing. Make sure to rename to recovery.img if necessary! Place the ClockworkMod recovery.img in the platform-tools (or even tools folder, depending on your SDK version), reboot into fastboot, and type:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img



How to flash stock recovery
  • Follow the same set of instructions you used above, just download the stock recovery.img below.
  • Make sure to rename to recovery.img if necessary!



Credits
  • toastcfh for bringing over CWM without even having the phone!
  • -viperboy- for testing!
  • xHaus, Deck, and everyone else in IRC who tested!



Downloads
ClockworkMod version pulled for now. This is causing an empty /misc partition, a fix is in the works!

Should I take the htc unlock or will there be another way to unlock the boot loader soon? Advice please.



Just do the unlock, It's fine. That's what I did. You can always relock with the ruu.


Is there any issues with using the HTC Dev unlock after root and the "tampered" message?




There is a way to get rid of the tampered. Just flash the RUU and its just like it came out the box. No reason not to do it.

It will still happen if you run the ruu once you root. Seems like it does some check on /system and tells you tampered if its been modified (as in rooting). Don't worry about it.




If I flash will I lose my apps and settings?

Nope!

    Updated version

    http://techerrata.com/toastcfh/hax/recovery-test2.img

    should resolve off-mode charging issues. please test and report back. i do not have a phone so i need you guys to test.

    also need USB tested. with phone off you should be able to see the device with adb and access a shell. may need to type "adb root" to actually get access to a shell. please report back with any issues with this as well.

    for me to debug touch i need someone to boot into recovery and touch the screen a bit then reboot to system and get me a last_kmsg. this can be done with the following command

    "adb shell cat /proc/last_kmsg>path/to/save/ur/new/awesome/log.txt"

    thanks

    Also, viperROM may be out early in the morning, if initial testing is good!

    This is great news! So is there anything holding back the first custom ROM then? Or are they in the works right now?

    It's being worked on as we speak :) Just have a few more things to sort out. I really hope to have a build up tonight for you guys!

    Fixed recovery coming ASAP, and a MISC fix zip coming too.

    Also, you guys are gonna get lucky and have USB in Recovery mode here soon :)
