Says I have the wrong update file when running the RUU.

Fastboot says:

*** UNLOCKED ***
flyer pvt ship s-on rl
hboot-1.11.006'microp-0950
radio-3821.08.00.26_m
emmc-boot

Hey,

So you can actually use the pen just like you can use your finger?
Have you tried sketchbook yet?
Or basically any other painting app?

I would also really appreciate information or screenshots about how the notes app has changed.
Do you see handwriting recognition?
How is the palm rejection working?

Thanks a lot for testing this out!

When i type "fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin" then I see that menu on the screen to unlock it. I can choose Yes or No.
If i switch to Yes and press the power button nothing happens. But if I choose No and press the power button, it reboots.
No Idea why..

Anyone an idea?

This will void your warranty. There is no way back if you choose to do this. It may also brick your device, if you don't understand exactly what all the steps below are doing then DO NOT DO THIS.

Procedure:
  1. Donload this hboot MD5: 2eb541192be861ecceb2baa254403ade and this rom.zip md5: c7359fc765b228dc89b4dae06201dd01
  2. Put the hboot file on the root of the sdcard.
  3. Connect to the flyer using 'adb shell' and become root
  4. Backup the revolutionary hboot:
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 of=/mnt/sdcard/ext_sd/revolutionary_hboot.img
    (for now not very useful, but might be later)
  5. Write the new hboot to the phone:
    Code:
    dd if=/mnt/sdcard/ext_sd/hboot_1.11.0006.nb0 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
  6. Reboot
  7. You will most likely get a security violation and not be able to get past the bootloader screen. This is ok.
  8. Connect the flyer using fastboot mode.
  9. Go to http://www.htcdev.com/ and select "Unlock Bootloader". Ignore the supported device list.
  10. Register and follow the unlock procedure.
  11. Once you have unlocked the bootloader put the phone in fastboot mode again.
  12. Run the following commands
    Code:
    fastboot erase cache
    fastboot oem rebootRUU
    fastboot flash zip rom.zip
    rom.zip is the file you downloaded in step 1.
It may be possible to simply run the RUU.exe instead of step 12, however it is much easier to see if anything goes wrong if you use fastboot.

The HBOOT is extracted from the beta RUU. The rom.zip is the rom.zip from the RUU with the hboot removed. If you want to extract them yourself you can do that too.

Just a question: after this procedure we will be able to flash custom roms or not?
I have no experience with the HTC Unlock so I don't know that.

P.S. How the hell did you mind to take advantage of the HTC unlock? You're crazy man! :D

In theory yes. In practice right now no because there is no custom recovery image.

On the second point, because I don't care about warranty.

No not yet

I'll get some later. I'm a bit busy right now.

No, but I didn't look, will check later.
Fine, I never ever had any issues with it before.

Looks done to be honest BrumBrum74. Try booting.



I am no longer answering any questions related to installing the beta in this thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1248635

Could we have some more screenshots please?

It looks awesome but I am not even going to try and put it on my Flyer as I lack the skill!

Nothing to do with any of what you said.
So, I thought but you did so difficult that I become ironic (just a little bit ;-)

The reason for not posting the how is simple, it is not a nice solution and requires permanently voiding warranty.
That was also clear for me because there is until now no way back... and I also expect that some will brick their Flyer.

If you don't like the answer then tough, I couldn't care less what you think.
To be honest, I didn't expect that your Flyer still runs HC. I will be not the first time here in XDA that someone assert everything. Still remember that also before any S-OFF some assert to have rooted their Flyer. Also no upload, no explanation and so forth.

And I am exuberantly happy that this time it is different. My excuses... :)

    Here is the first Honeycomb leak for the Flyer in RUU form. Now that I see someone else has access to the leak my source has authorised me sharing it. ;)

    I'll be posting it pre-rooted and MCR'd etc. next week when my new Flyer arrives, in the interim, flash with caution - at your own risk - and enjoy! :D

    EDIT: It's not recommended to flash this ROM on it's entirety - I will release a fully tested build soon. This is recommended for developers only!

    Please note HTC classes this as an early Beta!
