create a new folder johnkor

Nope :(

You would still have eng s-off radio s-off and probably clockworkmod instead of the original recovery

BUT :D You can also restore them back

Whilst still rooted you need to remove clockworkmod, this is done by replacing the recovery partition with a genuine one
Then useing the tool for radio soff you s on and reset the CID to VODAP021
Then replace the hboot with an original

The above steps NEED it to be rooted to give you permission, THEN your rom would appear to them as if you had done a factory reset

OR IT APPEARS THAT WAY, CAN NOT BE 100% CERTAIN WHAT VODAFAIL CHECK :D

I have found out this from trial and error, and most of it is posted on here, but it is all over the place, I am in the midst of building a cheat sheet to be able to do it 100%

Thank you

Thank you for uploading this ROM, I jumped from a branded to Revolution HD on the day I got my phone and never did a backup.

Stupid I know but alas I was in a hurry and had new device urges...

I hope this works if/when I need it

unlock htc desire hd vodafone spain

I finally got around to rooting and S-OFFing my phone today, while I was at it I used clockwork recovery to make a backup of the Stock VHA Branded ROM.

I saw a few people were looking for this so here it is. Feel free to mirror it or whatever, this is my first ROM-dump so if anything is amiss or I did something wrong please let me know. I still have the device available to make further dumps.

This is for the Desire HD (Obviously) Branded by Vodafone Australia.

Sorry for posting a link as a new member, I thought this would be worth it.

EDIT: Obviously the dump is all at factory defaults, on first boot it should be like buying a new phone, from a bloatware company.












Hi,do you know on how to unlock the htc desire hd brand name vodafone Spain??????
Waiting for some news asap, thanks a lot:confused:

My Phone is rooted and I was previously running Mike's Android revolution ROM.
I have no issues flashing other ROM's only this one.
I've tried everything I know how, plz help, thanks.

That means the file is corrupted or had a bad download. Try downloading it again.

    That's the point :p People have been asking for it as a backup rom, as flashing a non Vodafone rom may void certain warranties, which flashing this back could increase your chance of keeping. I personally upgraded my own DHD to a much better ROM as soon as I could.

    Seeing as Wikipedia says the company providing Telstra's 2100Mhz band of UMTS is joint owned by Hutchinson I doubt you'd really get any difference in reception of 3G or HSPA on that band between the two companies. On the other hand Vodafone/Hutchinson's (or VHA as they are now known) 900Mhz band of 3G or HSPA is separate from Telstra's 850Mhz band of 3G or HSPA and I would imagine the two are probably quite different in coverage area. Keep in mind to the best of my knowledge, since the days of the old chunky Kaiser II phones HTC has decided to produce their phones operating only on two bands of UMTS (3G or HSPA). The HTC Desire HD sold by VHA runs only on 2100Mhz & 900Mhz UMTS. The HTC HD2 sold by Telstra (as opposed to the European import version) for example only runs on the 2100Mhz and 850Mhz. So in short if you are using a Desire HD running on 3 or Vodafone and wanted to change to Telstra I think you would only be loosing 3G or HSPA coverage since Telstra doesn't run any 900Mhz UMTS reception and your phone can't use Telstra's 850Mhz UMTS.


    Okay so back on topic... firstly thanks to the guys who've provided their backup stock roms. I too have jumped partway into the rooting process of my VHA bloatware Desire HD. Seeing as the guided made no mention of it I'm now a bit surprised to realise that if I need to restore the ROM for warranty I'll still be left with the modified h-boot or other modified crap that could show up to VHA techs if the ever checked. PLEASE can anyone put together a guide or some directions on how to restore either the full original stock ROM or the stock ROM that's been done after using Visonary then how to put back any h-boot or leftover traces of modding/rooting. If anyone even if you're new to this process would like to put together a guide I would greatly encourage you to as it's better than having no guide at all and trying to work it out and possibly brick the phone in the process. I'm sure other more experienced users could correct your guide on anything as well if you needed it. Thank you.

    OK nearly there...

    With a rooted DHD...

    You need to remove clockworkmod, to do this you need the correct recovery.img file, AGHHH just found this post that covers most of it
