HTC Dumlock Instructions:
  1. Install the build of TWRP using your method of choice, but you must actually flash TWRP to recovery. No fastboot booting it. We need it in recovery so that this build of TWRP will be flashed to your boot. This new build of TWRP has features in it to easily restore your original boot.
  2. Reboot into recovery.
  3. Make a backup of your phone.
  4. Tap Advanced.
  5. Tap HTC Dumlock. (If you don't see HTC Dumlock then you need to remove any custom TWRP theme that you might be using.)
  6. Tap Install HTC Dumlock. This will install the app and binaries needed to make everything work nicely.
  7. Reboot your device.
  8. Find and open the HTC Dumlock app.
  9. If/when prompted, give the app root (SuperUser) permissions.
  10. Tap the Execute HTC Dumlock button.
  11. Wait patiently for a couple of minutes. It takes a little while.
  12. If your device doesn't reboot automatically, reboot it manually. Reboot it normally. DO NOT reboot it to recovery.
  13. You should now be in your recovery, but your recovery is flashed into boot.
  14. Tap Advanced.
  15. Tap HTC Dumlock.
  16. Tap Restore Original Boot.
  17. Use your recovery like normal. Flash a new kernel. Restore a backup with a different kernel. Do whatever you please!
  • Consider donating!
  • Note, you must repeat steps 8 through 17 EVERY TIME you need to flash boot.

Go unlock your bootloader. Then inside of TWRP it should detect that your not rooted and automatically root . If it doesn't prompt you. There are two links in the OP that you flash in recovery that will give you root.

Ok to make sure I understand you install the twrp attached and install the Dumlock and this will allow us to flash the boot.img in twrp and not through fastboot?

Coming from samsung devices, all this fastboot stuff and HTC Dumlock is super confusing.. I'm rooted and running TWRP, but I'm certainly not comfortable with flashing another ROM and kernel yet. Thanks for the thread though, I extremely appreciate you work and time!:good:

Edit: Do I follow these exact steps to flash a full ROM zip with a non-stock kernel as part of it, or are there extra steps.. Really hate sounding like a noob, just do not want to do something dumb..

The international roms have a script in them that flashes the kernel with the Rom. No need to fastboot or anything like that.

Ok, Im helpless right now. I got my phone unlocked finally after much frustration. I downloaded TWRP to my android folder. I typed in the correct prompt on CMD and then it just sits there saying "waiting for phone". What do I do now?
