Everything will get wiped. It's back to factory. There is a way to filter your contacts to see whether they are on Gmail or phone. I forget how you get there. The Gmail contacts will magically reappear on your phone.

I've run this, and it's downgraded to 2.3.3. All steps seemed to work. But I can't run programs that require root. What have I missed?

Did you revolutionary?

If so,did you install recovery and flash superuser as described in the revolutionary info/faq?

I ran Revolutionary, but don't remember seeing anything about flashing Superuser. I downloaded it from the Market, but that didn't work.

Edit: I just found the SU zip. I will try it now.

Turn off the phone and hold the volume down button when you power up. Did you install a custom recovery?

I decided to repeat the entire process because I think I missed something somewhere.

Now, when I type in: adb shell /data/local/tacoroot.sh --setup
I get: ...rm failed for /data/data/recovery/log, no such file or directory
link failed No such file or directory

Are you s-off? You.should be if you ran revolutionary.

If you're s off you're making things unneccessarily hard on yourself.

Yes.

I have rooted Eris's and Droid X's and felt like I knew what I was doing. I am lost here. The first trip through all went as it should but I never saw anything about flashing SU.

Anyway, where do I go from here?

Boot to hboot as bberry described. Select recovery. If you get clockwork,then.wipe cache and dalvik and.flash superuser.

If you get a red triangle and ! Then you have the stock recovery,and need to.install a custom recovery.

I just HAD to make an account here to tell you how much I appreciate this! I'm very new to Android and I spent all day looking at different how-to's and yours was by far the easiest to understand. The first method worked perfectly for me and I can't thank you enough!

So i was trying to root my phone or whatever so i can install a custom rom and i was following this guide because i had 6.01.605.05 and another guide on here said i had to downgrade before rooting

[guide] How to manually downgrade firmware build 6.01.605.05

I got all the way to the end and was about to use revolutionary to install a recovery or whatever it was supposed to do, but then my phone started to bootloop and i followed the instructions to "flash the 0312 radio" but i get

c:\miniadb_inc2>fastboot flash zip 1.09.01.0312_vivow_Radio_PG32IMG.zip
sending 'zip' (13225 KB)... OKAY [ 3.251s]
writing 'zip'... INFOsignature checking...
FAILED (remote: 12 signature verify fail)
finished. total time: 6.046s

my hboot screen says:

VIVO_W XB SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-0.97.0000
RADIO-1.09.01.0622
eMMC-boot
Apr 13 2011,21:20:07

HBOOT

FASTBOOT
RECOVERY
FACTORY RESET
SIMLOCK
HBOOT USB
IMAGE CRC

i havent done an HTCdev unlock, and someone told me to go ahead and try revolutionary but when i try it, it gives me "waiting for devices" i run it as an admin and ive ran it about 3 times, my tray icons say that my device is not recognized even though i know i have the drivers installed

You canot flash the radio while s on. Prolly the entire downgrade ruu did not.flash.

Repeat the steps to flash the downgrade,and make sure it flashes all partitions. The phone then should boot.and you can run.revolutionary

i can follow the guide again but when i get to "adb devices" i cant continue because my device is not recognized even though i've reinstalled the drivers, does my phone need to be fully booted? because it wont fully boot since its stuck in a bootloop.

EDIT: my pc seems to pick up my phone when its in FASTBOOT USB but "adb devices" still wont find my device

We wouldn't be here if we didn't get a kick out of helping people. Congrats on your new phone! Now you get to choose a ROM. ICS or GB. Sense 3, Sense 4 or non-Sense. I'm running EclipticSense. Check the sticky for a huge list.

did misc_version push successfully to data/local/tmp?

are you in the "root" stage of taco root(i.e. does adb shell give you a # ?)

reboot the phone,start the process over,and then copy/paste the entire cmd window here and well see what we can see

Question Error opening input file?

Scotty,
Not sure where I have gone wrong.
I have redone the whole process 3x trying both versions listed (first and 2nd post).
No matter which i get stock here.

c:\miniadb_inc2>adb shell /data/local/tmp/misc_version -s 2.18.605.3
--set_version set. VERSION will be changed to: 2.18.605.3
Patching and backing up misc partition...
Error opening input file.


I did the unlock with htcdev first and that worked fine. I am using the CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip if that means anything.
Just cant get pass this.

Try removing adb shell from the command line,and enter the shell first. You may need to type Su to get the #(indicating upfull root permissions)
Not sure if I did this correctly, but here is what I got.

c:\miniadb_inc2>adb shell Su

You have to undo (relock) the hTCdev unlock before you can get s-off.

looks like you are not rooted. did you flash the superuser files in recovery?

you also do not want to enter adb shell and su in one command.

you want to:
adb shell
if the prompt changes to a $>

then,enter:
su
prompt should chage to a #>
and you may have to grant permissions on the phone screen,so have it awake and unlocked

your failure to open input file in the post above,could be from not haveing root access,or could be from an inaccessible sd card(mounted as a disk drive instead of charge only,sd not in the phone,or possibley bad)

you didnt say wich method you were following,but i assume youre following htcdev directions in post 2.

youll need to have a # before you the misc version will work.

did misc_version push successfully to data/local/tmp?

are you in the "root" stage of taco root(i.e. does adb shell give you a # ?)

reboot the phone,start the process over,and then copy/paste the entire cmd window here and well see what we can see

Here's what i got. tried the adb shell, and it gave me a $ even after running the tacoroot command and it going into it's bootloop cycle.

was the phone still bootlooping when you enterd the adb shell command? i notice prior that you tried to undo the root. despite getting an error,if the phone rebooted, the root may have been allrerady undone.

also,looks like you did not try su at the $ prompt,so we dont know for sure if you had root access here or not,if the phone was still inthe bootloop root cycle.

as far as your closed error,could be from no root,did you reboot from the stock recovery as described?

make sure sd is mounted(charge only),and is present. make sure that no phone programs are running-htc sync,easy tether,pda net,etc.

ok so i went through and also made sure i didn't have htc sync on my computer or phone running (even made sure it was uninstalled)

it helped as i got a little farther.

but now i'm stuck at
Code:
C:\android>adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp/misc_version
2938 KB/s (367096 bytes in 0.122s)

C:\android>adb shell
^C
C:\android>adb shell
# su
su
su: not found
# ^C
C:\android>adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version

C:\android>adb shell /data/local/tmp/misc_version -s 2.18.605.3
--set_version set. VERSION will be changed to: 2.18.605.3
Patching and backing up misc partition...
it just sort of hangs there while the phone keeps rebooting

sounds like something is still running,a funky usb cable,or possibly an sd card issue.

dont underestimate the abilility of a cheap usb cable to eff things up

Woot! I'm running EclipticSense but there are many choices and you just have to try a few to compare them.

Perhaps they are not themes, when you first boot into EclipticSense (setup) there are 4-5 choices you can choose from. I have tried 3, I cant tell the difference, but then again Im a noob......
I would like to know what they are all about, what the real diff are.

I'm a couple versions behind so I might not have those options. Your best bet is to post in the Ecliptic thread.

@Scotty, are you following the XDA thread? I'm losing track of the possibilities.
