Default How to revert back to an earlier version of HBOOT

This mostly applies to folks who have flashed the leaked ota and want to go back to legit stock. There is generally a problem with that, because we cannot use the RUU due to the upgraded Hboot (no radio has nothing to do with it).

Through my travels, I found a way to do it.

This is not without its risks, and I take no responsibility for any broken phones, knocked up cats, or homeless hamsters caused from the havoc it may wreak.

It did work for me, quite well. I was able to flash to an old RUU without issue like nothing ever happened.

First, the link I used, and then the english version.

[HOW-TO] Downgrade HBOOT - HTCPedia.com forums

Need the RUU?
http://www.mediafire.com/?ld1gm3bbddcbwdw

Now, my instructions, which will hopefully simplify it. I take no credit for this by the way, credit is due to the original thread.

1. Download and unzip the files I have attached to this thread and put them somewhere that you can push them with adb.
2. You must used Unrevoked's latest tool to install clockwork.
3. Boot into clockwork recovery, go to partitions, and mount data.
4. Type this code:

Code:
adb push flash_image /data
adb push mtd0.img /data
adb shell
chmod 777 /data/flash_image
cd /data
flash_image misc mtd0.img
exit
adb reboot oem-78
Watch for your phone to reboot to a silver HTC logo.

Then type:
Code:
fastboot devices
Verify your device shows up/responds/etc.

Start the RUU. It will complain that battery life is too low to continue. Hit Exit, and it will reboot your phone. Run the RUU again. It should successfully flash your phone, downgrading you successfully.


Having troubles with the RUU giving connection errors? Do this.

Go to start, and in the search/run box, type

%temp%

Delete all that you can. Make sure the RUU is not running in the background.

Now run the RUU again. Once it starts to the first screen, it has extracted the files to the temp directory. You can then copy them to a safe place. It will be a long winded numbered folder, with a similar subfolder.

Once you have copied it to a safe place, you can then copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and adbwinapi.dll from the latest SDK into it, overwriting the older copies. Then start the RUU by executing ARUWizard.exe. This fixed the problem for me.

You can also rename the rom.zip contained within the extracted files to PB31IMG.zip and put it on your sd card. Booting to HBOOT will scan it and offer to install.





Good luck!

So this is easiest way to go back to RUU, so can apply update and re-root?

Well if you haven't applied update yet, you can simply use an RUU without going through this nonsense.

I've almost got this working. I had connection problems with the RUU so I copied the files like you said. That worked and I got the battery warning, hit exit and it reboots. I run ARUWizard again and I get the connection problem again?

Any ideas?

ganesha, you might be better off using the zip method Diego mentioned. The RUU program is downright finnicky.

Question, I mount data from clockwork recovery, do I then do adb there or do I restart the phone and then do adb? I can't get it either way, from clockwork, it does it but nothing happens & if I restart the phone, it denys me access to flash image...what am I doing wrong?

NM, whatever I did worked...it let me restore using PB31IMG.zip...that's interesting since it didn't follow exactly what you wrote lol

Actually, running it from clockwork did the trick for ya. It doesn't tell you its doing anything, just does it

Please note there are a few ways to do this and my way may not be the best. Good to know the zip method works, because before a couple of you posted about it, I had no idea it would work.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what exactly is this "RUU" and where can I get it? I do have the PB31IMG.zip file but I'm not sure how I would implement it after running the commands you posted.

Just spent about 20 minutes with adrynalyne trying to fix my screw up and he got me working again with this method. Many thanks for that and if anyone has any questions on how to do it feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to pass on the good deeds.

I did. I was following this tutorial: YouTube - Droid Incredible Downgrade

Basically when just getting into HBOOT it doesn't automatically read the zip like it does for the guy in this video.. and this is where I am stuck. Haven't really heard any suggestions from anyone on any of the forums on how to get past this.

I figured out the problem. It was not reading the .zip because my SD card was in FAT format and I had to reformat to FAT32.

Sorry for the redundant questions but since this method worked at unrooting my phone and bringing me back to stock, will this method of flashing the PB31IMG.zip folder also work to bring me back to stock after flashing the leaked OTA or would I have to use your method posted above?

This is a one time shot so if you need to revert again, you will need to follow this procedure again.

Ok this is weird. My SD card is formatted to FAT32. Everything goes like the video up to the point where it checks the zip file. Instead of saying "Do you want to update? Volume up Yes" it is saying "Main Version is older! Update Fail! Do you want to reboot?"

Any ideas where this is going wrong?

I think I might be on the path to my problem... I double clicked on the PB31IMG.zip file and it said it was corrupt. I'm trying it again from PB31IMG.zip - 4shared.com - online file sharing and storage - download I will let you know if I have any luck.

Well, download the RUU and extract it then. Rename the rom.zip to PB31IMG.zip.

So this method would ALSO be a way to unroot?

Thanks for this adrynalyne. Worked great. Had some issues and had to do this. If it wasn't for you I would be a unhappy person right now. If you lived in sac, I would buy you a steak dinner.

I unzipped them to my desktop. However, I have my sdk setup in the global path (many don't), so it doesn't matter where I put them, as long as the command prompt is in that directory.

For me to tell you that, I would need to know your OS, where your SDK is located (full path) and what it is named (the folder).

Click on the start orb, right click on computer, go to properties. On the left side go to advanced system settings. Under advanced, click on Environment Variables. In the top box, highlight path, and click edit. At the END of the path, make sure there is a semi-colon. If there isn't add one, and then type: c:\sdk\tools and click ok.

For instance, here is mine on one of my machines. It is also Windows 7.


%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\MinGW\bin;D:\android-sdk_r04-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools;C:\strawberry\perl\bin

Reboot, and then open a command console and type adb. If it gives you a help like menu, then you did it correctly and can now copy the files anywhere.

Under that top box list, one is path. You might need to scroll down.

Once you have copied it to a safe place, you can then copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and adbwinapi.dll from the latest SDK into it, overwriting the older copies. Then start the RUU by executing ARUWizard.exe.
OK, is there a RUU app for OSX or Linux? Or can I do this all in the SDK and ADB?

You can download a PB31IMG.zip if you don't have a Windows box. I believe I listed a link in this thread somewhere.

Good question. I would also like to know the answer, as I am running OSX.

So what is the procedure? Download file. Put into SD card formatted FAT32. Then do what? HBOOT? Just pick the .zip and restore? I am not clear.

Thanks in advance.
