i'm using bulletproof-m7-2.1 kernel (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2233665) for my stock rom 4.1.2; since i need to remove the camera files inside the zip file, i re-zip whole package after delete the camera file -- is there any special setting i need to use for the zip file?

really appreciate!

you shouldnt have to do anything special. that kernel definately should install with a recovery flash. only things i can think of,are that you have possibly disturbed some of the install files by deleteing the camera files,or that modifying the zip simply breaks the signiture.

you can try toggling signiture verificaTION off,if there is such a setting,i cant remember off the top of my head. you could also try re-signing the file after you modify and rezip it. there are free signing utilities if you search.

id also give it as shot using CW instead of twrp,if all else fails.

you could also flash the kernel without modifiying it and see if it installs that way(make a nandroid first so you can get back to how you are)

try googling "android file sign utility" or "android file sign app" or something to that affect. the one i have is from PPCGeeks and i think is called "android signer"

you could also try it with cw instead of twrp.

I have TrickDroid 8.0, SuperSU and ClockworkMod's recovery. I do have couple of questions, where only one is more related to HTC One than another's.
1) Is root (and SuperSU) ROM specific, do I need to re-root if I change ROM?
2) I have tried to install ClockworkMod's touch recovery, but for some reason touch doesn't work. What should I do?
3) If I install latest TWRP (2.6.0.1), does it work correctly with RomManager that I'm also using?

I'm newbie of what it comes to Android in general and I haven't understood this rooting / custom recovery / rom even that much. I unlocked bootloader, rooted and installed custom ROM couple of days ago but it was more like doing what was told rather than understanding..

no. once you have a s-off,or at least an unlocked bootloader that allows installation of a custom recovery,you are rooted. root access to /system files is easily added to any stock rom with recovery. custom roms will have superuser built in,so you have root access to /system files as soon as you flash them.

2) I have tried to install ClockworkMod's touch recovery, but for some reason touch doesn't work. What should I do?
make sure youre using the right image for your version(sprint has its own). double check the md5 sum and make sure the image or package you downloaded matches what its supposed to.

last and not least,if you had only temporary booted it,try permantly installing it instead. im learning fastboot booting recovery on these phones doesnt work exactly like im used to on other devices.


3) If I install latest TWRP (2.6.0.1), does it work correctly with RomManager that I'm also using?
no. and i personally would advise against using rom manager,even if you use CW recovery. it is an app,in a working rom,and as such will not always be available to you. when you have issues,the way to fix them is in recovery,so youre beter off using that method so your familiar with it,and not trying to figure it out in a state of semi-panic

I'm newbie of what it comes to Android in general and I haven't understood this rooting / custom recovery / rom even that much. I unlocked bootloader, rooted and installed custom ROM couple of days ago but it was more like doing what was told rather than understanding..
hope that helps. other questions,feel free to ask

Thank you scotty85 for your reply.

For some reason, seems that my phone doesn't work with touch version of recoveries. I've tried Clockwork touch and TWRP 2.6 and neither one supported touch. I'm not sure though if I would need to update something more as well.

I installed ViperRom using ClockWork recovery's non-touch version and found it quite difficult. I have tried using TWRP recoveries, but because touch doesn't work, there is nothing I've been able to do with it.

Below is code how I flashed recovery, touch just doesn't work.

Code:
Hopeinen:sdk-tools luosut$ ./fastboot flash recovery cwr_recovery.img 
sending 'recovery' (7270 KB)...
OKAY [  1.110s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [  0.781s]
finished. total time: 1.892s
Hopeinen:sdk-tools luosut$ ./fastboot reboot
rebooting...

finished. total time: 0.034s
Hopeinen:sdk-tools luosut$
edit: Finally got it right. I found new version of recovery that has support for latest firmware, file was named as "recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.3.2-m7-newtouch.img". Now touch works

glad you are sorted. i just read that the touch panel firmware for 2.17.401.1 has new drivers that break the touch in custom recoveries and was just coming here to ask what firmware you are on,but looks like you beat me to the punch

also thanks for sharing your solution

where did you find the link for the new touch recovery?

Can't remember where I found that exact file, but I just searched and found official thread with new file from here (xda-thread) and this is direct download link. File is not the same that I flashed earlier, but I just downloaded and flashed file that I linked and it works correctly.

Now that I'm rooted, do I have to manually flash firmwares (where to find?) or do I get everything I need from ROM files?

hmmm,thats the same 6.0.3.2 file that im currently running. it is 0.0.0.1 newer than the one that you linked earlier,so maybe it is new touch panel compatible.

at any rate,you will not be able to take OTA updates while running a custom recovery. the stock recovery and an OTA are how the non-rooted stock general public will get new firmware.

roms will only contain software. they will replace your current boot and system images.

when an OTA for your particular region/carrier happens,you will need to update firmware manually. while s on,the process is more complicated,as these firmware files are official,signed by htc,so youll have to relock the bootloader and flash them via the bootloader(more details on that later).

an s on phone is still doing plenty of security checks. not the least of wich is "main version",and also an hboot version check,so you are NOT allowed to go backwards. only what youre running or newer. also being checked are signiture,carrier id(cid),model id(mid),and lock status(wether bootloader is locked or unlocked)

as such,you can only install firmware that will go with your particular set of variables. for example,you cannot install european firmware on a t mobile branded phone,or t mobile firmware on an att phone,etc.,becasue the firmware package will fail the CID and MID tests.

you also cannot go backwards. if you install new firmware and dont like it,too bad. youre stuck until a new package comes out. becasue of this,id recomend only installing firmware or running full ruus from "release keys",official builds. i.e., the build that is pushed out via an OTA.

htcdev unlock is not lifting many of the security checks. pretty much it is just granting us access to boot,system,and recovery. it has limitations- you cannot change splash image,or any other partition,and the recovery partition is not allowed to write the boot image, so the rom flashing process is a bit trickier.

if youre just going to run rooted stock roms,its possible to stay s-on without much aggrivation. however if you intend to flash alot of different roms,and like to tinker with things alot,id pretty strongly recomend to become s off.

this makes updating firmware alot easier,not to mention you can go backwards if you want,you can flash other partitions(like splash image),recovery can now properly install the boot image,making rom flashing a bunch easier,plus you are now able to get rid of the telltale relocked watermark.

i would not worry too much about firmware just yet... consider going s off before the exploits are patched,and just enjoy rom flashing and using your phone for now

hope that helps

edit: oops,forgot your other question. if youre running a stock build,you can collect your own firmware files. when an OTA hits,let the phone download it. you will find a .zip file in your downloads folder that the phone would use to update. remove this zip from the downloads folder(remember your custom recovery cannot install it) and put it somewhere safe on your PC. using a utility such as 7 zip you can extract it and get to the "firmware" zipfile inside.

aside from that,firmware files can be found over on xda,in threads such as this one.

you can also find the entire OTA package here: http://androidfiles.org/ruu/?developer=M7 and here: http://shipped-roms.com/index.php?category=android&model=HTC%20One

I noticed that in clockwork recovery there is possibility to format /data and another option to /data and /data/media. Does this mean that when doing full wipe, I can format everything else except that /data and /data/media and keep my virtual sd content?

all you typically need to do is "wipe data/factory reset" in order to flash a new rom,and it will affectively wipe every thing that you need. its a good idea to also wipe cache,and dalvik cache for good measure.

as long as you dont wipe or format sdcard then you should be fine however i have found some things to wipe the internal sd that havent on other phones(like running an ruu) so its a good idea to back up the internal sd periodically,or prior to doing anything that could potentially have the unexpected result of wiping it,if you have things on it that you dont want to lose.

in android 4.1.2 /data/media is the internal sdcard
so formating /data or /data/media is not recommended unless you really want a complete wipe (backup sdcard to pc first).
In 4.2.2 sdcard has moved to /data/media/0
if you update to 4.2.2 your pc will not see whats in /data/media.

Thanks guys. I was asking this only because when I unlocked, rooted, flashed custom recovery, I managed to clear my SD card as well (I wasn't paying attention enough, because I was watching tv show AND having like seventh glass of wine when I decided to start tweaking)
No worries though, because only pictures were important and they were uploaded to Dropbox before. Now I was asking this, because I have backed up my ROM using Clockwork Recovery and I have took backups using Titanium Backups and even though I did download them to computer, I wish they wouldn't be deleted from virtual SD.

As there were options to format
- /data/
and
-/data/ and /data/media
I guess that formatting only /data/ does some sort of "delete everything except /data/media"


Edit: I re-installed TrickDroid to get different setup and noticed that it asked if I wanted to full wipe or not. I chose not to, but if I was about to install different ROM situation was different:
Question: Should I always format different mounts (everything else but "/data and /data/media") BEFORE installing ROM and in install process format nothing?

Well that gave me a few nasty moments!

I'd decided to stay on temp recovery until the update arrived. So it arrives today, I take a nandroid, then by mistake install it before copying the update file (as I'd intended to - just pressed the button in a thoughtless moment). Installs fine, all seems to work but of course I'm not rooted. OK, will fastboot boot recovery.img, take a backup of the unrooted 4.2.2 ROM, then root....

Except all that fastboot boot recovery.img does is lock up my bootloader so that I have to hard shut down. Try newest TWRP, same result. Try CWM touch, same result. Notice that the hboot version has updated, but I'm still unlocked and S-Off, so should be OK. But it is definitely not working.

Bite the bullet, fastboot flash TWRP 2.6 permanently, and yes, it works! Back to rooted and will not be doing any more OTAs

I'm writing this in case anyone else was using a temp recovery and finds that it stops working after the update, just to let you know that a proper install did work.

Also, if anyone is thinking of getting the OTA 4.2.2 update but is interested in S-Off, do not return to locked & S-On before running the update. To quote these prescient words:

The 4.2.2 update comes with a new bootloader (1.54 in my case), and revone cannot handle it (yet?). So if you are S-On and accept this update then you won't be able to S-Off using revone, at least for a while. I've not checked the other S-Off method. If you are S-Off when the update is applied, you will still be S-Off afterwards. So right now, if you think you might be interested in S-Off, do it before updating to 4.2.2.

thanks hadron,great info. thats an interesting bit of info with the temp recovery. cant wait to find out more about that... if that was a fluke that it wouldnt boot,or a new "feature" of hboot 1.54

if someone else has captured the OTA,youre not neccesarily stuck on the OTA situation. firmware.zip inside the OTA zip will have a matching stock recovery inside,so being s off,you can easily pull that and re-install it if you get a notion

good advice on s off prior to OTA. folks need to understand that exploits are blocked,and they need to take advantage of them while they work. also once s off,hold onto it! it wont affect normal operations of a 100% stock phone,there is never a reason to s on unless you have to for legitimate warranty purposes. never think "well ill just s off later" or "ill s on to take the OTA then s off again". you may find yourself stuck

It wasn't a fluke - I've seen it confirmed over at XDA.

Between that and revone's incompatibility with 1.54 (from reports on XDA you can relock while running 1.54 but not unlock again!) I decided that 1.54 was taking away too many of my options. Plus, what's the advantage of a newer hboot anyway? So I've downgraded my hboot back to 1.44, and just confirmed that fastboot boot recovery.img works again.

Note for anyone reading this who thinks that means there's a work-around: you have to be S-Off already in order to downgrade hboot.

wow! i assume you mean the s-on crowd cant re-unlock? even with a new token?

i assume the s-off crowd is still able to change the lock flag?

i tend to always run the newest hboots,along with the newest firmware. ive learned the hard way mix-and matching stuff doesnt always work out. but it would irritate me not to be able to fastboot boot stuff

lack of a real t mobile ruu has kept me from venturing too far from my stock firmware. its really annoying me,as id love to flash european firmwar,change my mid,and get euro updates

thanks again for the info,my good sir.

I think the S-On crowd will be fine with HTCDev, though I did spot some discussion of new tokens.

What I meant was that the S-Off crowd are not able to change the lock flag in both directions, at least not using revone. Couple of people at XDA tried it, and while able to lock they could not unlock: see this post and the one below it, for example. Of course if you are S-Off you can just change the hboot, but that was the point where I decided I'd feel happier running a hboot where the tools worked.

I went back to stock (via Supercid and flashing RUU, then changing cid to one of the ones that the new OTA updates were available on last week)

So am now on Hboot 1.54, S-Off (Revone) locked bootloader and unrooted.

Is it just a case of downgrading firmware again to 1.44 and then i can revone again to unlock bootloader again?

did the OTA turn you to locked?

what ruu did you run? did you change your mid as well?

on to your quesstion

have you tried the zip files to change the lock status flag? [how to] reset your lock status flag

try flashing the query,then unlock zips with CW recovery(they dont seem to work with twrp). as long as the new hboot hasnt introduced some sort of write protection on mmcblk0p3 () then the zips should work. or you could manually hex edit p3.

failing that,yes you can simply swap back to hboot 1.44. unlock it with revone,or the zip files, then upgrade back and it should stay unlocked. if not,hadron has discovered there does not seem to be any consequenses to simply staying on 1.44.

failing all that... you could do it the old fashioned way. with a new unlock_code.bin

Think it was flashing the RUU that locked bootloader.

I was just messing with the phone last week while bored, decided to Supercid, then flash an RUU, can't remember which because i have a new laptop and have downgraded from Win 8 to Win 7 on it so have no files left that i originally used, then changed cid to one of the ones that the OTA's were available on (before UK version was released), then back to Cid htc__001.

Didn't really notice that the bootloader had locked again until i booted to it to check the Hboot version after OTA'ing, so can't 100% say at which point the bootloader was locked again.

Just messing on stock at the moment, been busy at work etc, but it is only a matter of time before i obtain root again, just thought it would be easy option to downgrade firmware and unlock bootloader again using revone.

Crafty, as long as you are still S-Off it is that easy.

Download the stock, unmodified 1.44 hboot from this xda thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=42379041 (assuming tapa hasn't mangled link - should be post 2 of sneakyghost's firmware thread). Follow instructions in the post to flash it. This is how I downgraded mine. With that hboot you can use revone to unlock.

I'm sure you can htcdev unlock anyway, but will have to backup & restore if you do that.

Of course you can try revone now, but people were reporting that it doesn't work.

the RUU shouldnt have locked your bootloader either. nothing should have,other than the revone tool,or flashing the locked zipfile.

if you havent changed your mid,sounds like you were allready on a compatible mid,so all you needed wwas the correct release firmware and CID.

ive run cm 10.1 on a couple devices,im gonna have to try 4.2 with sense 5

Come to think of it, I may have relocked the bootloader myself prior to running the RUU......there has been a lot of Stella Artois consumed since last week, and what with sorting out the new laptop as well my brain is a bit frazzled!

Well, after the first couple of Stella's tonight i decided to downgrade the Hboot (thanks to Hadron for linking above )

Worked fine, but then when trying Revone to unlock Bootloader again it kept failing, tried to flash CWM recovery...fail, tried to root....fail.....in the end i reflashed a WWE_Europe RUU, updated to 1.29 OTA, unlocked Bootloader again via Revone, installed CWM, and rooted again and left it at that.......for now....mwahhhahahahhahahahhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I like messing with my phone....it makes me feel good.

haha! me too

its driving me nuts not to flash some other RUUs. i did a few on my international one,since i had an ruu for the fimrware it had on it when i got it. lack of an official t mobile ruu to get back 100% has been keeping me stock(ish) on this one.

ive dumped all the partitions to make myself an unofficial,un-signed ruu.. just need to convince myself that that is good enuff for govt purposes

Bite the bullet, fastboot flash TWRP 2.6 permanently, and yes, it works! Back to rooted and will not be doing any more OTAs

I'm writing this in case anyone else was using a temp recovery and finds that it stops working after the update, just to let you know that a proper install did work.

Also, if anyone is thinking of getting the OTA 4.2.2 update but is interested in S-Off, do not return to locked & S-On before running the update. To quote these prescient words:

The 4.2.2 update comes with a new bootloader (1.54 in my case), and revone cannot handle it (yet?). So if you are S-On and accept this update then you won't be able to S-Off using revone, at least for a while. I've not checked the other S-Off method. If you are S-Off when the update is applied, you will still be S-Off afterwards. So right now, if you think you might be interested in S-Off, do it before updating to 4.2.2.
I have a similar problem.

I have yet to root this phone (I'm on Three UK carrier, so I assume the GSM method is correct) although the bootloader is unlocked via the HTCDev method.

I recently updated the phone to 4.2.2 and another small update afterwards.

I tried booting the temp image and got the same frozen bootloader issue as hadron above. Tempted to flash the permanent recovery but would like to take a backup of the original first if possible in case anything goes wrong, so I can flash it back.

Is this possible?

Apologies if the answer is found in this thread, I'm new to Android and have read this up and down a few times.

I can't think of a way, though Scotty knows the loopholes better than I do

With a custom recovery you could back up everything else, and if necessary you could fastboot flash a stock recovery image if you can't get a backup. I found a few examples available for download at xda-developers - can't guarantee they would be identical to the one on your phone, though I suspect the stock recovery doesn't vary much, and some UK users have made them work. So this would probably work, though I've not tried it.

The other way is to use an RUU, but that will do a factory reset in the process, and it would need to be a 4.2.2 RUU if you are S-On. In any case I've not found a Three UK RUU yet .

Of course, if the worry if the custom recovery not working, in that case you can just flash a different custom recovery (TWRP or ClockWorkMod).

So the chances of being stuck without a recovery at all are slim, but it would be good to have a way of returning to stock if needed. In the absence of an RUU I think you could probably do that by restoring a backup of everything else and then flashing a stock recovery, though the bootloader would still indicate that the phone had been modified. An RUU would be cleaner for that purpose.

I think I'll flash the TWRP recovery in a little while tonight.

No guts no glory!

I'll report back on how it went.

I'm using TWRP at the moment (CWM would have been more familiar, but TWRP seems more popular here). It's fine so far

Thumbs up Success!

Success!

I am now rooted with TWRP!

This reminds of the time I first flashed a motherboard BIOS on my first gaming PC when I was a teenager...I was crapping myself over the horror stories people told about failed flashes and bricked motherboards haha.

Same feeling really, once you've done it once it's all good.

I think I may leave the custom ROM's alone for the meantime, (not sure Cyanogen for example will even work on this phone/carrier) and just enjoy my root access.

Ace guide, and thanks for the reply Hadron!

not much more to add,other than that the phones nowadays are doing such complex checks,that downgrading the hboot is not possible without s off(or really nasty method of purposely bricking it in a certain way,so that you can "recover" it to an older hboot with a jtag-like method)

if you can find an OTA package,from someone else with your same firmware,it will contain a recovery image that you can use to flash back to stock if needed. hopefully you have made an unrooted nandroid as well for back to stock purposes,and move it somewhere safe on your PC,just in case

id be careful mix-n matching recoveries. different builds,and even different versions of the same build,typically have different md5s,so there are differences,however subtle they may be.

I'm having difficulties to select which ROM to use. I've used Trickdroid for few days and then, without any reason, switched to InsertCoin. I had no issues with neither of them, but I guess it's because this whole world is new to me, I'd like to try more and find best for me. I installed Google Edition of InsertCoin, but because I like HTC Zoe, it wasn't one for me. ViperRom is told to be good but when I installed it first time (first custom for me, actually), some apps wouldn't install but gave some error message about installation to SD card.
I know that people does have their own personal preferences and some like me doesn't know yet, but which ROM do you prefer and why? I'd like to find something to stick in with and maybe throw few bucks to developer..

You sound like me a few years ago, you will try many roms when new to it, and you may still keep trying new roms when they come out, eventually you will find yourself going back to one that you previously liked and will stick with it.

It takes time....keep trying them , nothing wrong with that.

My choice is OrDroid.

The beauty of the nandroid backup is that it's no big deal to try a new ROM - if you don't like it, just use the nandroid to revert

I am holding off getting into the ROM game just now because I'm kinda busy and know how addictive it gets. But soon, my precious, soon.....

Yeah, I do have Nandroid of my Insercoin at the moment, been restoring it quite few times when new ROMs are been tested. Now I installed Android Revolution 12.01 and restored user apps with data from Titanium Backup + created manually all necessary accounts and system settings. I'll create Nandroid backup from this also when I'm sure that everything is working fine, let's try and see.
I've read elsewhere that it's not necessary to create full wipe if moving from one rom to another IF base is same. Is it so? Devs tell that you should do full wipe if you are coming from different ROM.

They will always recommend a full wipe to avoid any issues, may not be necessary, try without, if there are issues then try again with wipe.

Yeah, it depends on how similar the base is. If you have issues then you won't get support unless you did a wipe, and rightly so, since there's no way of telling what problems incompatible data might cause (I've seen some pretty odd and unlikely things in the time I've been here). So wipe first is always the clean and safe way.

Having said that, you can often get away with it if the bases are similar enough. Your call, but if there are any oddities and you didn't wipe first, do wipe and try again before you blame the ROM.

Now I have tested few ROMs and found that best for me is InsertCoin. ROM itself seems very good and developer seems to take it seriously and gives great support.
Only thing I'm missing is possibility to change for how long does led blink on notifications. I'd like to change it to blink until screen is opened (or until notification is checked from notification center), but so far this is the best. Gonna give developer few euros when I have my paypal set up.

glad youre having fun with your phone. also think its cool to donate to devs... ive donated to the creators of all the root tools ive used,as well as a few rom devs,and if i really like a play store app,i always buy the paid version,even if its not much different.

most folks work on their apps and roms in their spare time,so its great to support them.

hopefully he can work in the mod that youre after

When I did this with my EVO V 4G I was careless but I really want to know will our warranty end if we do S-off, what if down the road my htc one has battery issues or dead pixels. Also would this work with windows 8 due to driver issues.

you prolly have a beter chance of voiding your warranty by unlocking the bootloader and staying s-on. s-off lets you return the phone to 100% out of the box stock locked and s-on.

if you do not go s off,best you can do is relocked and anyone that cares to can check your hboot screen and see that youve tinkered with it

not to mention s-off lets you do lots of other cool stuff

The HTCDev method certainly will. Otherwise it depends on your software version.

As long as you've not updated to 4.2.2 all methods will. If you have then the S-Off tools won't work, and you'll probably have to permanently install recovery (the temp method seems not to work with the latest firmware).

The key is hboot version. Everything works with 1.44, only HTCDev with 1.54.
