Hi..

I decided to make an "EASY TO USE" unroot guide for the HTC Legend..

Here goes..

First..
If you want to unroot to software version 1.31
... download this file and put it in the root of your SD-card..
- This version can easily be rooted again..

If you want to unroot to software version 2.03
... download this file and put it in the root of your SD-card..
- This version will need a downgrade in order to root phone again..

When the wanted file is on your SD-card turn OFF your phone..

EDIT: *** NB: Reported in that this might not work if SD-card is partitioned with ext-partition. If not working try to use a fat32-only ***

Turn the phone ON while holding VOLUME DOWN..

The phone will detect the LEGEIMG.zip file on the SD-card and
ask you to upgrade..

Select YES.. And wait...

This should do the trick....

Hello,

I'm not familiar yet with rooting.

When this procedure is done, will I have a working Legend device ?
Which rom will it be running ?
How could I "upload" CyanogenMod to this rooted legend ?

I've search the web, but I do not get everything yet...

Thank you for your hep !

Thanks for the guide, but it doesn't work for me. :(

"No image or wrong name!" message appears.

I've tried your first link and my own rom.zip renamed to LEGEIMG.zip .

Can someone help me with this? I keep getting an error. I can't flash the LEGEIMG.zip by reboot & vol dn+power nor by clockwork. Tried downloading the file twice, tried my extracted rom.zip and it just doesn't work. :(

What else can I do?

Can you post md5 of this zip?

You honestly believe that there are psychics reading these forums?

What error? Does this error have a name? Does it have a description? Or does it just say:

ERROR

...over the entire screen?

Dammit guys, learn to post some useful information!!! If it ain't working, there's definitely a reason don't you think???

Sorry, I wrote about it on the previous page. This message was kind of stupid bump.

Love you too.

It says 'error' tho, before error messages, so you're right. In green tho. ;)

Something like 'Wrong image!', 'Can't find image'. All about LEGEIMG.zip . It dissapears fast.

One of two problems..

1) You did not put the download in the ROOT of your sd- card or

2) you have renamed the file..

One of these things are causing the error..

I'm 100% sure I haven't renamed the file and it's in the root (astro file manager shows it in /mnt/sdcard). If ROOT means sdcard top folder then there it is.

edit: clockwork says "Can't open /sdcard/LEGEIMG.zip (bad)". Hence the request for md5 - but I doubt triple download would cause some inconsistency in file.
