I am a bit late to the Rezound crowd but recently, my aunt switched her phone to the HTC Rezound and I'm trying to root it for her. I cannot unlock the bootloader because when I enter the command "fastboot oem get_identifier_token.", it gets stuck at waiting for device. Sorry if this has been answered before but any help?

sounds like either a driver issue,or a "something running on the PC" issue

did you get a response from the previous command( fastboot devices )?

here are some basic trouble shooting steps for non-connectivity:
Quote:
troubleshooting connectivity issues:
-try a reboot of the PC
-try different usb cables and ports
-dont use a usb hub
-dont use usb 3.0
-make sure nothing capable of comunicating with the phone is enabled and running. htc sync,pdanet,easy tether,and even itunes have all been known to cause issues.
-windows 8 has been known to have issues. try a windows 7 or older machine

failing the above,
-i use these drivers for fastboot and adb(donwload and run as admin): http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe

failing that,try manually updating the drivers in the following manner:
-put the phone in fastboot mode(select fastboot from the hboot menu)
-open device manager on the PC
-plug in phone,watch for it to pop up in device manager.
-update drivers with device manager,pointing the wizard to the extracted
driver download folder from above

note that you can check the connectivity of the phone,and make sure drivers are working by in the following manner:
-open cmd window. change to directory containing adb/fastboot utilities

-adb with the phone in the booted OS,usb debug enabled,enter:
adb devices in a cmd window

-fastboot with phone in fastboot,enter:
fastboot devices in cmd window

in either case,a properly connected phone with working drivers installed should report back the phones serial number.

So from what I've read, I should turn off s-on into s-off so that I can flash ROMs easily? S-off seems to be a risky and dangerous thing and I don't want to risk hardbricking the phone so if I turn off s-on, flash CM10 in recovery and reboot, the phone will work?

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. If you'd like to stay s on and flash roms,read this: http://androidforums.com/rezound-all-things-root/587430-s-want-flash-roms-read.html#post4704462

Alright from that post, should I go to this link: [HOW TO] manually flash roms and follow the instructions there? I tried flashing CM10 last night and it would get stuck at the HTC boot screen and never pass that so I figured I was doing something wrong and that seems to be that the kernel wasn't flashed due to S-On. Sorry if I'm not making myself clear.

appears as tho youve somewhat missed the point of the post. your permantly installed recovery is unable to install the boot image,wich is why cm10 would not boot. AOSP and sense kernels are not compatible(your stock sense kernel is still on the phone)

manually flashing the boot image via the linked thread is one way to skin cat. however,id go the other route: launch recovery into phone memory. that way,recovery can install the boot image,and all youll need to do is flash the rom.
more specifically,the directions youll need to follow are these:
Quote:
some more detailed instructions

if you rooted with my guide,then you have seen this before. its basically the directions to "temporarily flash recovery"

for those that have rooted via other means,you can modify these directions to fit whatever folder you have adb/fastboot in,or you just use these directions:

download these files:
-mini-adb.zip: mini-adb.zip
-the latest amon ra recovery image: [Recovery] Amon Ra style vigor - xda-developers

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 (i recomand revolutionary drivers)

1)prepair ADB
-unzip your mini-adb.zip file. this is native funtionality in windows 7. you otherwise may need a utility such as "7-zip" to extract,or unzip it. place the unzipped folder onto the root of your C\ drive on your PC(sorry, you mac guys will need to develop this for yourself,i dont have a mac). root means the top level,not inside any folders. so just copy and paste,or drag and drop the folder onto C with everything else that is there. rename it to "mini-adb_vigor" since youll be putting some vigor(rezound) specific files in here. you actually can call it whatver you want,but directions from here forward will assume this folder to be named "mini-adb_vigor"
-open a command window. on windows 7,click the start bubble in the lower left and type "command" in the search box. xp i believe is similar or the same. doing this should open a small black command window.
-change to your mini-adb_vigor directory. type the following at the prompt in your cmd window:

cd c:\mini-adb_vigor


2)launch a temporary recovery:
-move the image file you downloaded above for amon RA and place it into the mini-adb_vigor folder.

-type in your cmd window,or copy/paste the commands that are in bold

-check the md5 of your recovery image:

md5sums <recoveryname>.img

i.e.,if youre using an image named recovery-ra-vigor-3.15-gnm,then your command will be:
md5sums recovery-ra-vigor-3.15-gnm.img

**make sure the resulting md5 matches the one that drellisdee lists for the image that you downloaded. **
(if you use 3.15,then the md5 should match: 9d127cde10b68de5e424aaea2d4a4357)

-enable usb debugging on your phone and plug it in,charge only mode.

-check for connectivity:

adb devices

-it should reply with your serial number. if so,then:

adb reboot bootloader

-this will boot your phone into "fastboot" wich is a white screen with coloered letters.

-check for connectivity:

fastboot devices

-should return serial number

-temporarily launch your recovery to phone memory:

fastboot boot <recoveryname>.img

again,if youre using amon:
fastboot boot recovery-ra-vigor-3.15-gnm.img

-youll see a (really fast) green status bar on the top right as your PC sends the recovery to your phone. youll then see the HTC splash screen,then your recovery.

now that youre recovery is running,you have lots of options. you can mount usb storage to move things on and off the sd card if you need to. you can also flash the main version tool if you need to: main version tool.

note that once recovery is running,you can unplug from the PC if you want to flash your rom from the couch,ktichen table,or wherever

you can now restore a backup,or flash a rom. be aware that if you are still on gingerbread firmware(hboot 2.09.0000, 2.10.000, 2.11.0000) and are flashing an ICS rom,you will need to flash a special patch for the rom to work,AFTER flashing the rom: old firmware patch

last and not least,a couple notes:
-to paste into the cmd window,you must right click/paste. you cannot control/v
-to copy from the cmd window,right click. click mark. highlight everything to copy in white. now hit enter,or right click again.

holler if you have more questions

*there will be some refinements to this in a bit,ive got to step out for a bit...

Sorry for being such a bother lol, I'm just very confused as I've never messed with an HTC Device. As of now, I have no idea what to do to flash CM10. I see I have to flash a different kernel since the stock kernel isn't compatible with CM10. I read the instructions and I think I should 'launch a temporary recovery' and then flash from there after using a firmware patch? Is this correct?

almost

no need for a firmware patch. just download cm10 and gapps,place them on your sd card. follow the directions above or in the root guide to launch a temporary recovery(you can do this even if youve allready installed permant recovery) then flash the rom normally.

-make a backup of stock
-wipe data/cache/dalvik cache
-flash rom
-flash gapps
-reboot

when a temporary recovery is launched,the phone behaves as if it were s off,and will flash the kernel for you- no need to do it seperately.

hope that helps,and you are not being a bother... it can be pretty confusing when you first get into it

not sure wich cm 10 rom youre looking at,but im about to try this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2113140 as it supposedly has working BT and the buglist is down to "camcorder only records in landscape" wich i can live with

I've added my thanks to the list for this easy-to-understand guide. I'm late to the Rezound myself and heard it was hard to root, but your guide made it painless (even easier than my original DINC).

My only other comment is that I didn't use the 3.16 recovery because I could never get the md5sum to match regardless of how I downloaded or extracted it, so I used version 3.15 which went without a hitch.

Hi Scotty,
You have been so helpful to so many users, I was wondering if I could solicit some assistance. I rooted my rezound when ICS came around as an OTA on verizon, and have just been running stock, S-ON. Then Verizon comes up with this most recent OTA. At first I declined it, then later it snuck up on me and loaded on my phone automatically. The update installed successfully it appears, but my root is now gone. I can't get super user access or wifi tether etc. I also can't get into my recovery. I'm currently on build number 3.14.605.13 710RD. Do you know where I need to go from here? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

sorry your somewhat on your own for windows 8. ive read some stories of difficulty getting drivers and such to work.

your failed daemon may be a driver issue,or could be something running on the PC.

your fastboot device failure could be a driver issue,a something running on the PC issue,or the phone not in fastboot. when the phone is on the proper screen you should see fastboot usb on the phone screen when plugged in.

close out any programs capable of communicationg with the phone. pdanet,easy tether,htc sync,and even ituens can all cause prollems. you can also try different usb ports and cables when you dont get a serial number reply from adb/fastboot devices,and make sure youre not using usb 3.0.

you can try installing htc sync and see if it installs win 8 compatible drivers(make sure to uninstall the program itself afterward) or try a google search for "windows 8 htc adb/fastboot drivers" or something similar.

sorry i cant be of more help,but im win 7 x32,i dont have access to a 64 bit win 8 machine to try and duplicate your situations and find compatible drivers

might be easier on you if you borrow an older win xp/7 laptop for the purposes of rooting. you would then be on familiar ground

Sounds like a driver issue. Sorry I don't have more info for ya some googling should hopefully turn up some win 8 comparible drivers. This issue actually is why i did not upgrade to win 8.

So I followed all the instructions in the OP at the very end when I installed SuperSU, it gave me a message that said "There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it. This is a problem!" What does that mean? I know I unlocked the phone because the fastboot screen said ***unlocked***

Sounds like you just tried to install superSU from the market,wich will not work.

You need to flash the zipfile from recovery.

correct once you have drivers you should be good to go.

the whole process is fairly fast when youve done it a few(hundred ) times. i could prolly unlock,install recovery,and flash superuser in less than 10 minutes. being cautious and making sure youve read everything,it will prolly take you considerably longer the first time. just depends on the individual. it may take you 15-30 minutes or it could take you a couple hours.

I may be posting in the wrong place but since this is where I began I thought I'd give it a shot.

I have the HTC Rezound and I used this method to root my phone including the HTCdev bootloader unlock. I kept s-on and am on the Gingerbread stock rom.

It's been working great for quite a while. Now my home buttons at the bottom of the phone are acting up which is a hardware issue and my provider is sending me a new phone. I'm concerned once they get this one back I will get charged since it's been unlocked and rooted.

Is there any way I can avoid complications? Since S-on is still there is there anyway to get it back to "locked" status and will that even make a difference or am I just out of luck?

Thanks

Unfortunately,you cannot get back to locked while s on. You can relock and run an ruu to get rid of root,but relocked is the best you can do with the bootloader.

Lots of folks have sent in unlocked and relocked phones and not had issue,but the reality is you agreed that unlocking the bootloader may void "all or parts of your warranty" ,so we could not gauarantee one way or the other if you'd have prollems.

Best bet for peace of mind is to do the s off procedure,then turn s back to on,as the s off process resets the lock flag,Making you "locked" again

Thanks Scotty. I figured as much. I guess I'll have to decide if it's worth the chance of my screwing it up via software versus a known hardware issue. I just don't know how picky they will be about warranty.

wish i had a better answer for you than that. for what its worth,the jpbear method is really not that hard to achieve s off. then turning s on is even easier

my personal thots are that its not too big a deal to further screw up a device youre sending back anyway for legitimate reasons,if something were to happen. youll have to decide for yourself what your own comfort levels are

Ok... I have the steps for the s-off that you posted from Unlimited IO. Before I begin do you have a link to or directions for getting it back to s-on afterward?

Thanks again

Hmmmm I followed JuopunutBears instructions on the Unlimited IO page. I had to use a laptop I had sitting around that had win7 32 bit as all my others are on 64bit. Downloaded what he said. Followed the instructions and in the midst of it all it was erroring out telling me to check my device manager for adb drivers? It did not say anywhere in the instructions about adb drivers nor would I see the drivers in the device manager. Nothing I could do it just keeps cycling and searching for something. Had to abort and now I can get to the bootloader screen but that is about as far as it goes.

Ok... finally got it. Thank jbear for auto backup! I'm s-off. Downloading the latest RUU and will begin those steps to get it back to s-on.

Thanks for your help. If you don't hear from me again then it went all ok

I'm back. Having an issue. So I downloaded the latest RUU. Renamed it PH98IMG.zip put it on the root of the SD and its not flashing when I boot into the bootloader. Any thoughts?

Here's what happens now when I boot into the bootloader. It comes up with a series of errors saying that there is no image! when doing it's checks. I also can't get into the recovery screen. Otherwise the phone boots up just fine outside the bootloader. Still would like to get this thing to show s-on.

I'm at work a ATM,but in a nutshell:
-make sure SD card is formatted FAT32
-make sure file is on sd,not internal storage
-make sure file is correct and not corrupt
-phne must see ph98img.zip(windows can confuse the name process)

Alternately,you can use fastboot to flash ph98mg type files:

Done and Done. It looks like a factory phone now. locked, s-on. Even did OTA updates. Thanks Scotty. I'm sure you get tired of answering the same thing over and over but I certainly appreciate you taking the time. Sometimes threads get too long to go through ever posting.

Just think... when the replacement comes tomorrow I get to go through it all again! You've given me peace of mind. I almost forgot what the phones look like from the factory. The ads are overwhelming.

I've come here for helpful tips for a while now. After following your guide yesterday Scotty and getting my Rezound unlocked, rooted and running CM10 I had to register just to say thanks. Your guide worked like a charm and I appreciate the effort you've put into it

Got the replacement rezound today. Got it unlocked ok but it won't s-off using jbear's instructions. I also noticed it now says *tampered* above the unlock in black block. Didn't have that on my other phone. I'm thankful for all this but I wish there was a more solid way to do this stuff. Everything seems so precarious LOL

Ok.. so now I don't know what to do. It won't s-off via jbears stuff. And its stuck in Jbears world and won't rboot. How do I get it back?

Update: Never mind. After like 40 tries with several different wires I finally got the s-off!

So what's this CM10.1?

Hmmmm looks pretty cool. I don't see the Rezound listed though. Is it available for a Rezound on ICS?

I flashed Nil's Business rom and it's pretty nice.
