Welcome to the HTC Vision (TMOUS G2 and Desire Z) Radio ROM & Official BLs Thread!

Well, my old HD2 Radio ROM Thread became a reference for all HD2 users, so.. I'm retrying this here now :)


Radio ROM Downloads:

Vision_RADIO_12.28e.60.140f_26.04.02.17: MegaUpload

Vision_TMOUS_RADIO_12.21.60.09b_26.02.01.15 (G2): MegaUpload

Official hBoot Downloads:

Vision_HBOOT_0.85.0005: MegaUpload
Vision_HBOOT_0.85.0002: MegaUpload
Vision_TMOBILE_HBOOT_0.82.0000 (G2): MegaUpload

Installing:

0. Make sure you've got the ENGINEERING HBOOT installed on your device!
1. Download the archive
2. Decompress it, you'll have a .img file (its name should be "radio.img")
3. Copy it into your fastboot folder
4. Boot your device into FastBoot mode and connect it to your PC via USB
5. Go into your Android SDK folder with CMD (Windows) or Linux terminal
6. Flash the Radio on your device: "fastboot flash radio radio.img"
7. Wait until the process finishes. You should read "COMPLETE" on your device's display.
8. Reboot
9. Enjoy!

Please note that you should flash a new radio only if you really know what you're doing!


NOTE: 26.04.02.17 is known to work on G2 and most probably all the radios are flashable on both G2 and D-Z.


Happy flashing!

These are only Radio ROMs.
Anyway, it's dangerous to flash a Desire Z on a G2 and vice versa: I don't know if crossflashing will brick the phone.

Flashing a Desire Z Radio ROM on your T-Mobile G2 is at your own risk.

Can I suggest leaving the G2 stuff out for now until we know it works ok on a DZ ? Otherwise this could be a recipe for disaster ?

Would there be any benifit to flashing the Hboot to the g2 , Im looking to try and get the Z rom on my G2 , the current posted ruu fails to install and so i was thinking if i could flash the hboot then it might think it was a Z not G2 and would work , any thoughts?

If you flash it on an HD2 you'll brick it.

These radios are only for HTC Vision, and I'm not sure even if they're cross-flashable (G2 radio on D-Z and vice versa).

If you have to ask... you probably shouldn't be doing it.
Search is your friend.

In some forums there is a thread like "[REF] ALL ROMS | ROOTING | FAQ's | STICKIES | POSTING RULES - Read before posting"

Searching information about android is like walking in a maze. I know some questions are irritating but it is easy to say: "hit the search button".

Sorry for my crappy english.

I have a Hd2 running the desire Z rom. Does it make sense to flash the Desire radio posted here?

NO NO NO, do not do that! Check the link in my sig w/ my current radio for a list of compatible HD2 radios. Just remember, if it is TMO you should ONLY flash .50 radios

My god, this is a dangerous post, a very dangerous post!

The one sure way of bricking your phone is flashing the wrong radio,

User Beware!!!

    I think the general consensus is it's safer to flash the radio (and HBOOT/SPL) from fastboot unless it's a radio specifically for the device. With the G1, after a lot of debate, it was discovered that it was being bricked when flashing the SPL with the wrong radio in recovery, and that it was actually borking the recovery partition. I think this is the thread that explains it. Again, the above thread is in regard to the G1, but I believe a good reason why it's better to flash via fastboot.

    That doesn't apply to the G2 as all SPLs and radios are compatible, so far...
    The main reason is that fastboot won't let you flash a corrupt radio where as a zip will flash indiscriminately in recovery.

    It's also a good detriment from flash happy noobs. They should take the time to learn and figure out what an spl is.

    Do you by chance know of any other way to flash this new radio without fastboot from a computer. I've tried several times to get fastboot to work on my laptop and it just won't. I've used SDK on several phones in the past but just dosen't seem to play nice with my G2.

    Well, I attached a file "android-info.txt". Pack it with radio.img in a single ZIP file.

    Then rename it as "PC10IMG.zip" and copy it to the root of your SD card.

    Finally, start the phone in hboot BOOTLOADER and wait a minute, it will automatically update the radio without connecting to the PC.

    It works for me, hope it helps!

    So a (probably silly) question on radio ROMs......
    Is it possible to change the frequency your handset operates at by changing the ROM, or is the frequency determined by the hardware?

    The reason I'm asking is that I also have a Bell Canada handset (850/1900 MHz) which works fine when I'm at home in Australia, but won't work if I'm travelling through Asia which I do quite regularly. Is it possible to get a custom 850/2100MHz ROM?

    That would be hardware..you can't actually change the frequency of the phone..the radio is the software side of things as far as I know...you could probably use it in asia but only get 2g data..I know :(
