Default HTCDev.com Unlock - Perm Root - Amon Ra or CWM Recovery

It's not S-Off but HTC Dev is now allowing the Rezound to use the unlocker at htcdev.com. Hurry before they change their minds.

So does this unlock the phone so you can install different roms or get perm root?

Permanent root, definitely. Jury is still out on ROMS but it should be possible using stock recovery since we can't write the recovery partition until we get full s-off.

Yes, according to the disclaimer on their website, it will wipe data.

"To prevent unauthorized access to your data, unlocking the bootloader will delete all personal data from your device including applications, text messages and personalized settings."

Just went through the process. Not bad. Worked fairly quickly and I'm fully rooted and on my way back to kicking Sense's butt.

Just a word of caution guys.

Do this at your own risk. As i understand it maybe a little shaky ground to walk on with Perm Root and S-On. ....aka chances of a brick are higher. I could be wrong on this but i think i read that somewhere.

Also MrSmith you may can answer this question for me as i'm a little out of it with not having the device and just seeing this. When doing this to get Perm Root does it give you the ability to do a nandroid backup? I would think not because an official CWM would have to be made for the RZ correct?

Can I download the necessary stuff NOW in case they pull it, but not run through the unlock process yet? I kind of want to wait for S-OFF before I unlock the bootloader (and have to go through the whole backup/restore process), but I don't want to miss out on the unlocked bootloader if they pull it later.

Hooray!

Story here - Though Unlisted, HTC Rezound Unlockable via HTCDev Tools

What's possible? A whole lot - many have used this method for the HTC EVO 3D with the later bootloader version.

You should be able to add recovery - but not every type and every version. Once you have a custom recovery, custom roms and kernels are yours.

This is a very bizarre unlock - it leaves S-ON - but, it works.

I'll hunt around for more details and post back.

Yup. go through the steps up to where they email you the .bin file. Then you can stop and wait if you like. Just don't accept any OTA's because it might kill your unlock key.

now that it's unlcoked, any tips on how to get full root? just install superuser?

Also the minute it reboots and you enter the market it will redownload all the bloatware...just a heads up

I believe that's correct - koush (the dev) will have to make a CWM specific to this device (or certify that one he has already is).

When fully supported, you should find it in this list -

ClockworkMod ROM Manager - Recoveries

Here's the XDA thread on the progress -

Bootloader unlocked but s-on, from HTCDEV.COM - xda-developers

Pay particular attention to anything posted on XDA (or here) by "scrosler" - that's Scott Crosler, great guy, recognized dev here and at XDA, and a HUGE hTC supporter.

If you like a fast debloated Sense, his rom will be the one to watch for (among others).

Dumb question since I rooted my tbolt long ago, but, I never actually learned what s-off/s-on actually means. I've learned more about it on this short thread than anywhere. Can someone enlighten me on what it means and what it means you can/can't do?

EFFECTIVE NOW - AVOID OTA UPDATES!

HTC/carriers can, will and have changed bootloaders to make methods like this impossible.

S-ON means that critical things can't be flashed without an encrypted signature on the zip/image file.

To begin with, this means you won't be able to change the h-boot partition, flash radios or kernels.

However - once things start flowing along in the dev community, it's more than likely that some of things will come along with proper signatures - hence my claim above that you'll be able to flash custom kernels.

Not a stupid question.

HTC bootloaders have revision numbers - they come in specific versions in other words.

It's entirely possible (and highly likely) that the reason this works is that the version of bootloader on the Rezound today is matching that with other HTC phones that the HTCdev.com method will unlock.

If Verizon kicks and asks HTC to change your bootloader version so the HTCdev unlock stops working, the two of them can get together and make that happen via an over the air (OTA) update - and you'll be stuck.

Hence my advice - avoid OTA updates effective now, if you want to unlock your bootloader with this method.

what he is saying is that if you want to keep this alive on your phone don't take any future system updates that VZW may and try to push to you. Often times they will push an update that will break the prior unlocking process....aka patch the exploit/hole that made root/unlock possible.

Welcome to the forums!

This is a brand new development for the Rezound. Details are still coming out on what works and how - stay tuned!

Meanwhile - temp root is known to work, some are claiming they have perm root but are not posting their steps for others to verify.

I predict that within the next 24 to 48 hours, lots of exciting answers to these questions will be forthcoming.

Until perm root is confirmed your best bet is temp root and this -

homescreen -> Menu -> Settings -> System updates -> HTC software update -> uncheck Scheduled check

That's the standard HTC path, so may vary slightly on the Rezound.

The real Zergrush should get you rooted permanently. I've restarted and battery pulled several times just to be sure. Confirmed also on XDA.

I so missed your question in with everything else. The answer is unfortunately no. We need CWM or another recovery to be able to do a nandroid backup. Remember this, that unless you're in recovery, you're on a running filesystem and that can't be backed up. So we're getting there...inching ever closer by the day. 'til then, enjoy permanent root/bloat removal, and even some undervolting if you like courtesy of setCPU.

Yes. I'm going to ask Scott to update cleantool, so that it's REMOVING bloat instead of DISABLING it. I know he's also trying to put out CleanROM

I've seen that claimed earlier today. The XDA link I did find referenced this -

How to Root HTC Rezound Using ZergRush Method

Is that the method you used?

This also claims to be zergRush -

'til then, enjoy permanent root/bloat removal, and even some undervolting if you like courtesy of setCPU.
in your opinion what is the likely hood of bricking a device at this point if someone new to rooting is doing this and trying to do bloat removal and UV'ing?

I just always like to throw a PSA out during times like this when Root/Unlock are first being found to prevent some people from bricking their device if there is a high chance of it. A lot of that hinges on us not having an official CWM yet.

Default Lock Bootloader again (if you care)

for those of you asking how to lock the bootloader again its in the final steps:

Step 12

In the command prompt type: fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin.


Step 13

On your phone you will now see the disclaimer. Please read this carefully as this action may void your warranty. Use the Volume buttons to highlight your choice, and the Power button to make your selection. If you select Yes, your phone will be reset to its’ factory default settings, and your bootloader will be unlocked. If you select No, your phone will reboot and no modifications will have been made.
Step 14

To re-lock your bootloader, in the command prompt, type: fastboot oem lock.

Note: This will not restore the factory default lock, but will simply re-lock the bootloader so no further changes can be made. Furthermore, if you want to unlock your bootloader again, simply repeat step 12 with your original unlock key file to unlock your phone again.

Perm root works perfectly for me, but I have heard that BT won't work with this method. I don't use BT so it doesn't concern me.

One Click Root (Zerg)

I also got a recovery working Amon Ra for the vigor

recovery

I made a nandroid backup, so things are good for me and my rezound.

Same here i can enable and disable BT. Since I don't currently have any BT devices at my disposal to thoroughly check BT status, I didn't want to confirm or deny the use of BT through this root method.
