Can't boot into recovery...
Hi everyone. I was trying to root an inspire for somebody and ran into some problems. I don't have the phone on me at the moment so I can't give you all the info. All I can remember off the top of my head is that it was hboot 2.0.0.xxx
I can't remember the last numbers. I believe he has taken all OTA's so it is probably the most current hboot and radios.
I thought it would be simple. I unlocked HTC Dev. Easy enough. The problem is that I cannot boot into recovery. I have looked all over for a recovery that works and have tried 3 different ones. They flash fine but then sit on the white HTC screen when trying to boot into it.
Is there anyone out there that knows which recovery will work for sure? Or is there extra steps involved because he has updated too much? I'm not involved in the inspire forums and don't know much about the phone.
I thought I could just unlock, flash recovery, flash superuser patch and be done. He just wants to stay stock so thought it would be a breeze...
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
