Hi guys do any of you have the update.zip for the OTA?

from @TeamAndIRC working on s-off
ok yes i need an update.zip for your device, or one with teh same model (carrier doesnt matter)
They need it so our x920d butterfly will be added to the supported devices.

Help!!!!

Hi guys:

First off I just want to say that I am relatively new to all this. I have successfully rooted my Samsung galaxy S2 in the past (through completely different strategies) and I would really very much appreciated if any of you guys would be able to help me out as I have been trying to root my HTC butterfly for the last 3 hours. And I apologize in advance if the question has been raised before or is nooby, please I am desperate.

I have used a different method than the one instructed on this website in order to root my phone.

These are the steps:

Windows-based PC
HTC Butterfly
Download and install USB drivers on PC. Download HTC USB Driver for Windows
Enable Developer Options on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. How To Enable Developer Options On Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (Optional – Only applicable for Android 4.2 and above)
Enable USB Debugging on your device. How to Enable USB Debugging Mode on Android Device.
Backup your personal data on phone to PC to ensure you keep a copy of your personal data (SMS, MMS, Contacts, Internet Settings, Photos and etc). How to Backup Personal Data On Android Device.
Make sure your phone is charged to 50% to avoid interruption during flashing. How to Check Battery Level On Android Device.
Download

1. All-In-One Toolkit For The HTC Butterfly (Droid_DNA_All-In-One_Kit_v2.1.rar, 22.28MB) – Development Page
Instructions:

Register an account on HTCDEV.
With all the necessary files downloaded, extract Desire_DNA_All-In-One_Kit_v2.1.rar into a folder.
Launch the exe file within the extracted folder.
Connect your phone to the computer via USB cable.
Straight to “Get Token ID” and press “Go“.
A pop-up window will appeared in your computer. Patiently wait until the code complete run.
Right click on the pop-up windows, select “Mark”.
Left click to select the code started from <<<<Identifier Token Start>>>> to <<<<Identifier Token End>>>>. Right click it.
Back to the AIO ToolKit interface, proceed to “Submit Token ID” then “Go“.
A new windows will pop-up. Scroll down the page.
Paste the code under “My Device Identifier Token” and “Submit“
An email will sent to your registered email under HTCDev account.
Download the attached file along with the email.
Copy and paste the downloaded file to data folder within folder extracted in Step 2.
Proceed to “Unlock Bootloader” in AIO Toolkit and “Go“.
In your phone, you will be asked to unlock bootloader. Select Yes to continue.
After the code complete running, your phone will now reboot automatically.
Download CWR and place the downloaded file in the “data” folder of extracted files in step 2.

Your HTC Butterfly has been successfully rooted and with ClockWorkMod Recovery installed.

I have followed the instructions as listed and my phone did reboot and my data was completly wiped clean. However I am not able to do the last step where it tells me to place my ClockWorkMod. I downloaded the file as instructed but I don't think it worked. I installed TitaniumBackUp and RootChecker and both have suggested that my phone has not been rooted.

What should I do now? Should I try using the steps again? I'm afraid that this might "brick" my phone if done repeatedly. Any advice???

Please any help would be immensely appreciated.

Regards,

David

Hello! First of all I just want to say thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate someone out here helping a noob :)

But I still don't really understand what you're saying... I tried to follow the steps on step 2 and it eventually linked me to download goomanager
. From there I clicked install open script but nothing happens. The phone didn't even reboot. (By step 2 you mean the last step where it tells me to install CWR right?)

And I don't understand what you mean by flash SuperSu and busybox to get rooted. How do I do so? Also how do I know whether my phone has unlocked the bootloader? What did all the steps that I have done achieved on my phone thus far???

I'm really sorry I'm very new at this. But I appreciate your help thus far!!! If you could be able to give me a step by step it would be very much appreciated!!!!!

Thanks again!

So have I done everything wrong so far? The steps that I have done didn't actually achieve anything?

Sorry I feel like such an idiot but where is the read me in the tools???

no you don't. :p

What I mean is the Bootloader unlock will wipe your phone, you need to warn people about it. :)

and for the head up, u need to warn people bout the "warranty void" thing too....
oh that ...;)

I think when they go to HTC Site already been warn ?
