Default I don't get it? help plz!!!

long story short i have been all over the web trying to find a solution to my phone...here's the problem. i have a tmobile sensation 4g and i put the official update that brought it up to 4.03 and hboot 1.27.0000. i rooted it fine and did the htcdev unlock thing. and everything was fine. i flashed a couple of different roms that were cool but lost my wifi in the process. no big deal really. but when i tried to fix that problem i created a new one. i think i flashed a wrong firmware when i went to fix my wifi problem. now i cant get past the htc white screen no matter what i flash. I have been on google all week now and cant find a solution. and come to find out i cant supercid my phone which might help me. so im out of answers btw i have tried the following.....factory reset, wipe all cache system and delvik, and mikes superwipe i have also tried flashing these rom.... hd rev, vertious quottro , virtious eclipse, cm9, cm7, i even tried to go back to Sensation_3.32.401.5_R_odexed. and i am running cmw recovory.

HERE IS MY HBOOT SCREEN RIGHT BEFORE I GO INTO RECOVERY......

sounds like you do not have a kernel.

htcdev does not allow writing to boot from a permanently installed recovery. so when flashing roms on an s-on,htcdev unlocked phone you must either:
1)flash the boot image as a PG58IMG in hboot
or
2)flash the boot image using the fastboot command fastboot flash boot bootimagename.img
or
3)launch your recovery from fastboot



#3 is what i would recomend,as doing so will let recovery install the kernel just as you were s-off
1)place your recoovery image into the same folder as adb/fastboot(you may have to pull it out of a PG58IMG file,depending on how you installed it. if you fastboot flash revoveryed it,you may have the image in there allready)
2)boot to hboot. select fastboot from hboot menu
3)make sure your connected. open a cmd window,plug in phone. enter:
fastboot devices
it should spit back your serial number, if so then procede
4) launch recovery:
fastboot boot recoveryname.img
where recoveryname is the exact name of the image inside your adb/fastboot folder. this will bring up recovery. you can now enable usb storage and transfer a rom to your sd card. or you can have allready transfered it via a card reader in your PC.
5)full wipe,flash an ics rom that youre wanting to run. since youre on ics firmware and s-on,your limited to ics roms.

your phone should now boot. if you have a backup of a good working ICS rom,you can restore it in place of step 5

the sensation is a wonderful,glorious,extremely fun phone to own. i would very strongely consider once you get back to a working phone that you visit Unlimited.IO to s-off your phone. from there you can supercid,and it will make modding and owning your sensation a much,much more enjoyable experience

but it says i have the pg581000 file when i do fastboot getvar all. so isn't that my kernal?
btw i have tried flashing the pg58img by putting on the root of sd card from computer and loaded it into boot loader and all it did was searched for an img and then said phasing.....and i wait and it rebboots and nothing seems to change. thats what confuses me.


ok and i just tried to get to recovery through adb fastboot. but it just flashes cmd and nothing....

you are getting the error message becasue you are not following the directions very well.

take the IMAGE out of the PG58IMG zip. put it into your folder with adb and fastboot.

next,pay careful attention to what the image is named. lets say it is called simply "recovery".

now look closely at the command i told you to use to launch recovery:
fastboot boot recoveryname.img

note that you should be using 'boot' not 'flash'. what you are doing is launching the recovery image into phone memory from fastboot. you aRe doign this very specifically so that it will install the kernel for you when you flash the rom. if you flash the rom from a permanent installed recovery partition,it cannot write the kernel and your phone will not boot unless you choose one of the other options to manually flash the kernel afterward.

also note that you have included a '.zip' file extention,wich will not work with 'fastboot boot',or 'fastboot flash' you need to use a '.img' file extention,as you are booting an image.

so if your image is called simply 'recovery':
fastboot boot recovery.img

just for examples sake,lets say your image was named 'recovery_cw_5.0.2.7'. if thats the case,your command would look like:
fastboot boot recovery_cw_5.0.2.7.img


again,its very important to launch recovery like this.

hope that clears it up for you.

im sry im for not following all the directions clearly... i have been at this all week and i am very tired. i have to have this phone working by the 18th of july because i am shipping out for basic training in the national gaurd. so srry if i rush through things.

ok i know i should know this because im not a total noob...but where would i find the recovery img, on the phone or the computer? because i pulled one from my sd card named recovery and i believe it was out of the cmw folder....but it is a .zip file not an .img. i think that if i can maybe get the right file that i could get it working again based on what you posted before. and i REALLY appreciate all your help. thank you for giving me a little of your time.

Typically you will it on the pc,but you may take it out of the cw folder. Copy the zip to your pc and extract it. Use 7 zip if your version of windows wont natively extract files. Inside the zip you should find an image.

How did you install clockwork when you unlocked your phone?

it is not possible to install the phone without unlocking it,or achieving s-off.

the file that you extracted is not a recovery,it is a firmware file that you would not be able to flash if you are s-on.

download this:
PG58IMGcw5.0.2.0.zip

inside PB58IMGcw5.0.2.0 is an image named "recovery". this is what you want to use.

place the image into your folder containing adb/fastboot,and then your command to launch it will be simply:

fastboot boot recovery.img

clockwork will start,and then you can restore an ics backup or install a new ics rom

Do I need to update it to 4.0.3? I just tried that and I get the yellow tri-angle with the blue droid and cannot proceed further.

having the same issues as what?

ignore the cid getter app,it reads from build.prop or somewhere unreliable to see the real cid. if cmd prompt shows 11111111 then you are superCIDed.

what did you try? im not sure what youre issue is,or what youve done to fix it.

with a non booting phone,you can either install a recovery,then flash a rom or restore a nandroid.

if that does not work,you can run an ruu. with s off and superCID,you can run any one that you please

The issue is that when I installed a custom rom, it would stay on the boot up screen. I am still trying to figure out what I might have done wrong. It is still gingerbread, and I cannot update it. I dont know if that makes a difference.

I can only use the 1.17.1111 universal firmware. Is there a good cynogen mod for it? Trying to figure out this ordeal is compromising my sanity, oye. I might have to redo everything and update to ICS and try the 3.32, and then try CTMod 10 or another mod.

if you installed an ICS rom,then that was the prollem. with GB firmware youll need to stick with gb roms.cm7 if you want cyanogen

youre making it way harder than it is. all you need to do is run an ics ruu to update your firmware. since youre in the sensation 4g subforum,ill assume youre on t mobile. you can use this zip file to update: Shipped ROMs (reame PG58IMG and flash from sd card) or you can use this .exe file: Shipped ROMs (run as administrator on your PC with the phone booted,or in fastboot mode)

alternately,you can find other stock ruus here: Shipped ROMs try the european builds if you want to be unbranded.


once youre on stock,working ICS you can install a recovery as a PG58IMG file from the sd card in hboot. i personally prefer ext 4: PG58IMG-pyramid-recovery-ext_4.zip

here is clockwork if you prefer that: PG58IMGcw5.0.2.0.zip

from there,you can install superuser to be stock,rooted or go ahead and flash a cm9 or cm10/10.1 rom.

just remember to make a backup of stock before flashing something else

Just need to unlock it (Root it, correct?), and then find the right cm 10.1 for RADIO-11.23.3504.07_M2 (I've found a pyramid 10 I want to try).

You don't really need to unlock. You can install recovery,then just flash a Rom. There really is no correct cm Rom for your specific radio... As long as your on ics firmware,any cm 9,10,or 10.1 Rom will work

I cant seem to do anything without being unlocked? Any suggestions? I would really like to be root. Ive installed the ext4, not sure what that does for me though.

Ive been looking for a PG58IMG file that gives root (hopefully Im not mistaken) or a recovery that has root. Anytime I boot into hboot and try recovery it just reboots and I have to reset things on my htc.

Ive got it rooted, unlocked, s-off and all the good stuff.

I went through a site where I had to flash a recovery.img, the "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" I typed in the CMD window (windows7) did not work. So I took the sd card out, found the recovery(.img) and replaced it with the cmw v5.0.2.0 image (I labeled it recovery just like the prior recovery image was called, *note I did not add the ".img" part).
My question on this is: Does just adding(replacing) this to the file do anything? Or is there some way I should have flashed it?

I have not tried the line: "fastboot flash recovery recovery" (*not adding the .img, part), in windows7 cmd.

Everything seems to be in order, Im about to attempt the cm 9 mod, after I back everything up.

I have root, super cid (11111111), s-off, unlocked bootloader, and SuperSU 1.14.zip (installed/updated).

Thank you (times infinity!!!!) for all you help!!!

I also have the cwm pro APK (you have to pay for in the app store) downloaded and on sd, Ive tried to flash it, but it aborts saying there is a conflict with the signatures.

Not a necessary thing, but would be nice to have.

im a little confused. do you not have a recovery in place? if so,what are you trying to do? change to different one?

the command you list will work,since you are unlocked. just make sure the image is inside your adb/fastboot folder,make sure you are in that directory,and make sure you use the command with the exact name of the image. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img is correct if the image file is named "recovery".

the format is fastboot flash partition imagename.img (with a stock hboot you can only do recovery and boot partitions)

so,if you have a recovery image named "pyramid-cw-5.0.2.1" for example,the command is:

fastboot flash recovery pyramid-cw-5.0.2.1.img

this file has to be a .img file,not a .zip file.

zip files packed up with a properly named image,and a correct "android info" text document(the ones i linked in post #20 above) can be flashed differently,by renaming to "PG58IMG" and placed on a FAT32 formatted sd card. boot to hboot,and the phone will find,ask if you wish to update,and then update the file.

hope that clears up your recovery prollems. when you flash new roms,make sure you always back up a good working rom,and then do a "factory reset/wipe data" and for good measure wipe cache and dalvik cache.

that should let your rom install properly if you still have prollems,check the md5 sum,and compare it to one listed in the OP. if you cant find an md5 sum,move on to a new rom,or search the thread for other users asking the same question. a bad or incomplete download can defiantely lead to a splash hang,or bootloop.

im not familiar with this app. you may need do download "rom manager" and let it install a correct,more current version of the cwm. if you still have issues after that,maybe it is just not compatible with cmw images availble for sensation.

just a word of waring- do not use rom manger to backup or flash roms. its better to do those things manually in recovery.

I did a back up from recovery. In one full action with no reboots, I did a factory reset/wipe data" and for good measure wipe cache and dalvik cache. I was feeling frisky so I installed the cm 10, nightly (I know, I should do the stable, but I make a good guinea pig), and it worked!

scotty85, I give you my most genuine Thank You possible. Your patience with those of us learning is outstanding!!!

I tip my hat to you good Sir.
