Default [how to]unlock inspire build 3.20.502.52 with htcdev in preparation to use AAHK

read this: this thread is outdated!

unfortunately,the creator of the aahk has discontinued support for it. even if you have a recent copy allready,the program may not be able to obtain the files it needs to complete the process.

there is a manual method to achieve s off: the link to it and a support thread are here: [how to] manually achieve s-off,simunlock,supercid for Inspire 4g/DHD

sorry for the inconvenience.
__________________________________________________ __________________________________

the AAHK,or Advanced Ace Hack Kit,is the root standard for ACE devices(att inspire4g and international desire HD). it will downgrade and exploit your ACE to become s-off,superCIDed,and sim unlocked.

various means of temp root have been utilized in previous builds. however,there is no longer an exploit availabe inthe most recent sense 3.0 ATT inspire build 3.20.502.52.

some mods have been made to the hack kit,to allow it to work with a special insecure boot image. the instructions for installing this boot image are purposely vauge on the aahk site. (http://tau.shadowchild.nl/attn1/?cat=6)

if your new to the rooting game and are overwhelmed at what do to now,hopefully this will help.

this is a guide to unlock your bootloader using HTCDEV tools,and install the boot image needed for the AAHK to work

before we get started,however,be aware that htcdev does have its limitations. it can be used if you only wish to add root access to delete bloat and run a few root requiring apps,but IMO it is best used as a "steppig stone" to get root for downgrade,or for other exploits to run(in this case,the AAHK)

the basic steps will be:
1)unlock with htcdev
2)flash boot image
3)(optional) temporarily boot recovery and make a backup
4)relock bootloader
5)run AAHK


before you start,go ahead and download these files:
-mini-adb.zip: mini-adb.zip
-ext 4 recovery for ACE: PD98IMG_ace_recovery_ext_4.zip
-superuser files: use the latest superSU from this thread on xda (the download link is where is says: CWM installable ZIP: CWM-SuperSU-v0.96.zip )
-advanvced ace hack kit: http://tau.shadowchild.nl/attn1/?p=74
-boot image: http://tau.shadowchild.nl/files/att-ace-30-isboot.zip
-go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader and register an account



1)unlock with htcdev





2)flash the aahk boot image




3)(optional) temporarily boot recovery





4)relock bootloader




5)run the aahk




hope this helps... please holler if you have questions

Default The Mac Guide

Okay, I will try to follow scotty85's instructions on a Mac and see if anything needs to be changed. Since this is a guide, I will continuously update this thread as I go along. I don't have an Inpsire though, so I cannot actually try it out.

1) unlock with htcdev

Quote:
first thing you need is drivers for adb to see your phone. if you have htc sync installed,you should allready have drivers. if not,you can install htc sync,or install these modified htc drivers from revolutionary
As far as I know there is no HTC Sync for Mac, and the modified HTC drivers from revolutionary (HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe) cannot be installed as it is an .exe for Windows. This should not be a problem since a Mac OSX (like Linux) does not need additional drivers to recognize an Android phone.

Quote:
the mini-adb.zip file is all the files that htcdev is telling you to download and put into a folder,so allready this should be a lil easier
Okay. The mini-adb.zip will not run on a Mac. I think the sdk-tools.zip should be a equivalent alternative. This is not going to sound to professional, but I downloaded from the Android Forums a few months back in a thread that explained how they work. Cannot find the thread so I will update this post later.

I attached a copy of the sdk-tools.zip below temporarily until I find a proper link to the original source.

Quote:
*check your hboot screen. if you allready have an htc compatible hboot, then skip ahead to the next step,you dont need this.
Sense 3.0 ATT inspire build 3.20.502.52 is higher that Cingular USA 2.47.502.7 and all the other RUU's found on the HTCDev page, so we will skip this step (Thanks scotty85).

Quote:
-steps 5-7 are telling you how to find the files and utilities inside your mini-adb folder. you have them,so ignore steps 5-7.
The sdk-tools.zip contain the adb and fastboot tools needed for this operation. I unzip the sdk-tools in my home folder, but they do run from anywhere on the Mac.

To use the sdk tools launch your terminal from > Applications > Utilities > Terminal

Type: cd mini-sdk-tools or whatever you named the folder containing the adb-mac and factbook-mac binaries.

Than type: fastboot oem get_identifier_token and press enter

After that just follow the instructions for Windows.

I found the inspire in the dhd list. I can't look ATM,but iirc,it was listed as Cingular us or sillmilar.

Alternately,just pick other supported devices.

I believe the inspire build in question should have a compatible hboot,so no need to update.

Nice guide. About to take my first step into rooting- since this (and next major step) does a factory reset, any recommendations for backing up data NOT stored on the SD card (e.g. things like texts). Looks like Titanium requires root already?

ive heard my backup pro will backup user apps(but not app data)

there are apps you can use to backup sms and call logs,if those are important.

im afraid,theres not much else you can do,having to start over is one of the downfalls of rooting in many cases

Other commands do. Will run the ones specific to unlocking via HTBdev ones, just to make sure. I don't think it would make a difference that my phone is already rooted.

nope,it wont make a difference that the phone is allready s-off. however,before you do this,i have to warn you that you will possibly not be able to get back to locked bootloader,if you care about that. best you can do is relocked if you run a newer bootloader.

if the phone has run out of factory warranty,it doesnt really matter. it may not matter anyway,as you can always run an ruu wich contains an older hboot,that does not have the pink htcdev watermark,if you need to have warranty work done.

i personally always run an unlocked htcdev hboot,even when s-off,since it will let you use the fastboot flash and fastboot boot commands

if you did want to try the commands,but not unlock,you should be able to just select "no" on the bootloader unlock screen.

No! Do not update. Your current build has temp root,and the aahk will work as-is. Download and run it after thoroughly reading the effin manual.

You might consider running it on a Mac,or on linux,as the process seems to go a lil smoother than it does on windows.

correct! at end of step 4,you are ready to runthe aahk,but not yet rooted. the aahk will have to downgrade your rom,then downgrade your firmware,then it will exploit the device(giving s-off,superCID and sim unlock).

afterward you will need to rerun the ruu for the att sense 3.0 update,install recovery and root. we can help you with this.

it is not that i dont want to mess with helping with the aahk,just that i haVE NOt personaly used it i have rooted my inspire both with an xtc clip,and manually via software downgrade running the xploit.

i know the basics of what the aahk is trying to accimplish,and will try and help if i can. but make sure yuo have thuroughly read the effin manual,and have set up your pc environment as described- as windows seems to be the most complicated OS to get the tool to run on.(alot of folks use an ubuntu live cd)

Thank you for this guide, its been very helpfull. I am having a problem tho. I have read the effen manual several times and followed the instuctions to a t. Everytime i have tried to downgrade the aahk tells me ...
Starting downgrade
The phone will now reboot into hboot ( wich it does )
It will then check the file just sent. ( the hboot screen says checking...loading.. PD98IMG... no image then no image or wrong image.
After that the hboot screen does not prompt me to press vol up. Im very sorry if this is a stupid question . Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry forgot to mention im on windows vista and ubuntu does not work well on my pc

first thing to check will be the format of your sd card. if you find it to not be FAT32,youll need to back it up and reformat it,as the PD98IMG dowgrade file is invisible to the phone on FAT,or other formated cards.

I am aware there has been quite some time that has past since anyone has touched this post. I was recently given an HTC Inspire that is up to date with the latest software/firmware. I have gone through the first step of unlocking my device through the Devkit. I made it up to the point in which I must use the "md5sums boot.img" command. I am given back this

MD5sums 1.2 freeware for Win9x/ME/NT/2000/XP+
Copyright (C) 2001-2005 Jem Berkes - PC-Tools.Net: Tools and utilities for Windows, Unix/Linux, DOS
Type md5sums -h for help

[Path] / filename MD5 sum
---------------------------------------------------------------
Error: Unable to read file/directory boot.img

I have gone back through the instructions multiple times, making my checks to see if my sdcard is formatted fat32, my fastboot option is unchecked under power settings and now I am at the "fastboot usb" screen, with the device reading unlocked. Any help would be greatly appreciated my fellow droid users =)

The aahk is downgrading you to an old,outdated(yet exploitable ) radio and firmware. Even if you intend to flash a custom Rom,it is a good idea to RUU to the most current build,so that you are on the most current radio and firmware.

So you won't need to install superuser on the 3.0 Rom if you don't want to. Instead of flashing superuser,just go ahead and flaash cm7.

Id recomend to make a backup of your stock,unrooted sense 3.0 Rom,just in case you ever need it

well if you put it like that, theres no reason not to update to the latest RUU .

so int he tutorial you posted, skip the part about installing super user, and just install cynageon mod instead. niice

that could be a rom-specific prollem,or a hardware prollem. first thing i would do is upgrade back to the most current stock software/firmware as described a couple posts up.

run the phone on the stock updated software for a couple days and see if the prollem persists. if not,then flash a recovery and try a new rom,or just flash superuser to run the stock rom rooted.

Sorry about the link... Unfortunately looks likebthe creator has pulled them. We can't really re-distribute his work without permission,so well.see what we can do. In the meantime keep searching for a.non broken link elsewhere and hang in there...

I am trying to root my phone for the first time. During Step 1, once I am in the Fastboot screen, my computer no longer recognizes the phone when I use the command "adb devices", also there is no respomse when "fastboot oem get_identifier_token".
I dont not have the pink **locked** or **unlocked** at the top of Fastboot screen.

Is that b/c I do not have correct RUU for hboot?

you cannot use 'adb' commands in fastboot,only the booted OS,or in a custom recovery.

yes,the identifier token command is failing becasue you do not have a compatible hboot. youll need to download the correct RUU from htcdev to update your hboot.

I'm also trying to root my phone for the first time, and everything works until I try to use the downgrade from 2.3.5 in the aahk. It looks like everything is working until it gets to the step that says the phone will prompt you to press the vol up to proceed, then it will restart the phone.
Rather than doing that, it just sits on the bootloader and doesn't do anything else special, and it also disconnects from the computer, as in, in cmd it won't recognize that there is anything attached.

is there something I'm doing wrong, or missing?

*edit*
the screen does say hboot usb plug

it likely is not downloading the files it needs. unfortunately,the aahk is no longer supported by its creator. even if you have a recent copy allready,the program may not be able to obtain the files it needs to complete the process.

i will add a disclaimer,and lock this thread for now.

there is a manual method to achieve s off: the link to it and a support thread are here: [how to] manually achieve s-off,simunlock,supercid for Inspire 4g/DHD

may want to give me a day or two to get it completely figured out,unless youre fairly savy with adb and are able to manually make a working gold card,if needed
