Default Bootloader Unlock TEAM

Ok, everyone who wants the bootloader unlocked needs to call this number! 18003494478 I just got off the phone with them and they said they are checking with the corporate office. It might be a possibility to see this happen, but EVERYONE needs to call and request a bootloader unlock and explain that we don't care about the warranty. Please guys, this may be our only hope!

Thank you for contacting Kyocera Communications Inc. This email message is in response to your inquiry regarding the bootloader for the Kyocera Hydro.

We are sorry to hear about the difficulties you are experiencing and appreciate the opportunity to assist you.

Unlike Samsung, HTC and other phone manufacturers that has allowed you to access the bootloader of the phone, Kyocera doesn't make phones independently and then sell it to the market or end users. We make the phone's upon the specifications of the service provider as they are our direct customers. Giving the bootloader to end users will mean that they can have the phone reflashed to another carrier other than the one's that we have sold the phone to or make modifications the way they want it to, aside from having the phone's warranty voided we will also be charged of breach of contract. The only people who have access to the bootloader of the phone are the authorized distributors.

If you have any further questions, or are interested in purchasing, or information on accessories for your Kyocera Communications Inc. phone, please contact us at any of the phone numbers listed below:

-E-Mail: phone-help@kyocera.com -Phone: (800) 349-4478 (Toll-free USA and Canada only) -Kyocera Accessories: KyoceraWeb@scp4me.com -International Access: (858) 882-1401 (Outside the USA) -Fax: (858) 882-1717

Thank you for contacting Kyocera Communications Inc.

Mary, Technical Support Specialist Kyocera Communications Inc.

What a load of garbage that is. Yeah, I'm going to reflash my phone with software that doesn't exist in the wild. Maybe I'll flash it to AT&T or T-Mobile, right Kyocera guy?

I don't think they're going to relent.

Ok guys, I just spent 4 hours back and forth with Kyocera and Boost. I have finally gotten a breakthrough! They will be contacting me Wednesday with a possible development program for the Kyocera! Cross your fingers peeps!

Has anyone tried using "autostarts" from the play store? Cwhatever from the prevail forum said you could remove the 4.0.4 update with this app. I would, but I don't want to drive to Walmart and get a Google play store prepaid card..

Autorun manager is a free alternative

Oh so that's all it is. The only way it could roll back an update then is with a script that had all the old bits to put in place I'd think. And it'd be the script doing the work, not the autorun app.

I'm not sure how I can help if the issue is a locked bootloader... exploits really aren't me specialty... (I'm still learning myself...) but I will definitely help however I can

Looks like that's just a way to disable update checking and notifications, not rolling back.

I have yet to build cwm myself, but seeing as the hydro is only $60... I may be able to pick up an 'extra' one that I wouldn't cry over if ended up bricking it... it would definitely be a great learning experience... but to be perfectly honest, I'm actually considering getting a rush.

Again, keep in mind, I'm still learning... I have a pretty good handle on the basics, but I still have a long way to go.

We actually don't have a problem getting CWM onto the device, at least not on the Rise. The only issue is actually getting the phone boot into it outside of fastboot.

My roommate just got a system update notification... hmmm... I'm not going to be home until the 7th, but I'm going to help her root it over the phone tonight, so i may be able to pull the update from the cache, but if shabby is right, (and 99.999% of the time he is) then its only going to be patch files, so it may be of little use to us... but who knows...

I would like to note that less than 24 hours after you contacted them, there is an update... I wouldn't be surprised if it was to block root...

Actually, that means they helped! I asked them if they could try an update so we can see how the bootloader reads. This brings high hopes guys! I will see if they can send me an email of our conversation but it would be Monday before they reply.

If it's patch files that are signed then we know that and can study it. If it's unsigned then we can see how to introduce our own and get custom goodies that way.

There are some interesting tidbits, but I didn't see anything there that was particularly useful. Most of the information we have already. Maybe someone will see something I didn't.

OK... so looks like I won't be able to help her root over the phone... it "to complex" for her. (She just wants root so she will be able to tether anyways) so I guess if nobody else gets the notification, then I'll see if I can pull the update when I get back home

As far as I can tell that site pulls info from here and other forums, doing no checking to see if it's even any good. It's basically an automatic spam site fishing for ad clicks.

A quick Google search turned this up:
init.qcom.post_boot.sh

And a bunch of other posts regarding it.

http://www.google.com/m?hl=en-US&ie=UTF-8&source=android-browser&q=Init.qcom.post_boot.sh

It would appear this is a way to manipulate the cpu frequency and governors on boot


The seconds link explains a hack way of getting init.d to work with the stock kernel/ramdisk

So i had a little conversation with kyocera tech support today. and this is how it went:

Mary F: Thank you for contacting Kyocera technical support. How may I help you today?
Mary F: For documentation purposes, may I please have your full name and your phone number first?
You: justin **********
Mary F: Thank you. What's the model of the phone and who is the service provider?
You: Kyocera Hydro Boost mobile
Mary F: Thank you. I was able to pull up your records. How can I help you today?
You: Im looking for any information about development drivers for the phones as an app i am trying to use says it needs them
Mary F: I see. The drivers available on the website is only for you to use the phone as a modem. We don't have any development drivers that you can use.
You: Is there anyway to get them from somewhere, i really want to use my phone as a joystick through usb but it says i need the development driver
Mary F: I am sorry but there is no option for you to get the driver.For Kyocera we don't have the driver available as we make them together with the service provider. If there is no approval from the service provider who distributes the phones then we won't be able to have any drivers made.
You: how do you get approval from the service provider
Mary F: That is internal information and we can't disclose that.
You: that doesnt seem very fair
Mary F: It is an internal information Justin. Such details are only between companies.
Mary F: I understand you own the phone but the software and programming is still proprietary.
You: but isnt android open source?
Mary F: Android is open source but it also has it's limitation.
Mary F: Kyocera isn't like other manufacturers who can provide bootladers or developer drivers upfront.
You: i have a feeling that i am not the first person you have dealt with for a very simular situation to mine
Mary F: Kyocera makes phones upon the specifications of the service providers which is it's direct customers. Unlike with Samsung or HTC or other phone manufacturers who sells phones independently.
Mary F: Yes. You're correct.
You: can you at least tell me if there is talk between your company and the service provider about releasing such drivers to the open public?
Mary F: The two companies have a talk about the drivers. For the time being the update that they gave us is they don't have the drivers.
Mary F: If such drivers or bootloaders will be given away then that voids the phone's warranty.
You: i understand that it voids the warenty, but i understood that when i rooted the phone
Mary F: The bootloaders or drivers not only voids the warranty. If Kyocera decides to give it out to the public without the approval from the providers then we will also face breach of contract.
You: do you personally think that they will ever release the drivers?
Mary F: I can't give you an answer right now as we rely upon the information from our corporate office.

Looks like we dont got much of a choice but to try and find our own way to do this, but i think we already knew this. Well Sorry if i wasted time, but it was worth a shot. I know i went a round about way to try and get the drivers but it was actually something the app wanted.

I hope it works, I am finally gave up on Kyocera. They told me they don't have a program to use, but boost did. After a month of lies and BS I have decided to just email them a mean letter and buy a new phone

could someone who actually knows about this stuff take a look at this thread (starting at post 146) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1112236&page=15
and see if it may be of any help to us.
Found this like 50 pages into a google search awhile back, and it's how they got custom stuff to boot. The headers of any custom image had to match the stock images headers or bootloop.
revolution couldn't get directly into fastboot or bootloader either.
I do realize this is for an LG Revolution but it looks to me like the partitions are pretty close to being the same as the hydro's. never know, it just might work

Thanks for this! However, i couldn't get any different results than i've gotten already. At this point, I'm pretty sure it's most definitely a bootloader issue. Either that, or somebody needs to figure out how to sign the images properly. -_-

Boot animation can simply be copied to /system/media, long as you make the animation properly and name it correctly it will run, just have to set file permissions correctly.

wish kyo would at least make the factory image and reload tool available
if nothing else, it would give a way to unbrick when testing goes awry
