Your SPL
MOD WARNING: There are reports of this damaging phones, DO NOT USE until a fix is provided.

Further edit:
A member has reported :
"those with a SPL lower than 4.0.0.0 or something like that gets bricked. I just wanted to get this first post edited to reflect that so that people don't keep bricking their phones."

Hard-SPL for Herald is released!

if you somehow manage to kill your phone in the process of doing this then tough, it's not my fault.

once the SPL is on, it will protect itself from being overwritten.

the SPL is hardcoded to allow unsigned code and ignore your CID.

someone reported it somehow simunlocked their device after flashing an HTC brand ROM which is possible, but I doubt it.

When flashing, the RUU will go to 100% and your device will restart but the RUU will give an error; ignore this and close the RUU. to confirm, just reset into bootloader and check the version

PLEASE NOTE: THE DEVICE MUST BE SYNCED WITH ACTIVESYNC, DO NOT PUT THE DEVICE IN BOOTLOADER MODE MANUALLY

Differences g4 and h3 only for IPL.
SPL one for all chip.
USPL for Herald is made but is not published while.
Ask pof.

While we prepare new version - SPL and haret in one file.
Much problems when files apart -see thread USPL for Artemis and ELF.

Here's the beta version of USPL for herald, I did it a while ago but received few feedback: only 1 wing user (Paul from modaco) reported it working.

As beta, this does not flash SPL on device, to use just put the NBH you want to flash on the RUU folder and start herald-uspl.exe

Please report success or failure, remember it's beta, use at your own risk :)

I leave the final "Hard-SPL" version to you Olipro ;)

This is the method I used for installing the PDAVIET v14 Rom and have used it successfully twice with my Wing.

the device has a DoC, so you can read/write it with the appropriate pdoc tools.

any takers?


I prefer more safe method flash - original.
The Original flash allows to avoid the many problems -a choice of the addresses, model DOC etc and more correct.
Also any developers can use uspl.nbh and select spl for use in their own ROM.
In any event you may take for base spl and use in your tools.

flashing a few hundred KB to the DOC is really not a bloody issue. and could you please explain what the sodding hell "original flash" means, since I would like to point out that the idea is to generate an SPL for the two separate DoC types.

You load corrected spl in RAM and jump to it.
Hereinafter usual flash through RUU.

Details to ask pof

I've been speaking to pof, he put that post up for me in fact.

I looked at the file and noticed it contained haret, so I know exactly what the game is there.

I'll get an unpatched bootloader off pof and then deliver a bug-free patched SPL.

POF,thanks to you,after I used your tool to flash my own ruu file,it really work.how successful you are.It work!!!!!

but I still have some question,
this beta still can't unbrick devices that bricked,since it have to work beyond activeSYNC,can you make it work under the bootloader.because they only can run on bootloader screen. many thanks to you.
thanks again.

OK, I've created a patched ROM.

as I noted, it can be loaded with haret, so is anyone willing to test out 1.10.Olinex?
