Default Root Newbie Questions

Bought an AT&T HOX Rooted with cleanrom only.

Couple of questions, I've noticed there's no software update tab under About, is this because the phone is rooted?

When Jelly Bean is available how do I upgrade and will it get rid of the root and or cleanrom.

Thanks.

Yeah, the dev must have enabled that so people don't try to auto update by accident.

Yeah, are you looking for official JB or something custom?

I'll wait for the official JB OS. So what you're telling me is it writes over cleanrom and will have to be rerooted after the official JB update.

You'd actually need to RUU to install the official release and accept an OTA (or at least flash the stock recovery and flash the zip that way).

Unless one of the devs cooks a version you can install with clockwork.

the OTA will not have any special code in it. the best way to update,IMO,is as el presidente said. rom devs will cook up completely stock,to custom roms based on it when it arrives that you can flash in recovery.

if you also wish to have the fimrware that goes along with an OTA,the best way to get it is to wait until a couple days after the OTA is pushed,and then obtain an RUU(rom update utility) and run that on your PC to update.

with this device,unless an s-off method pops up between now and then,make sure you are superCIDed and have your original unlock_code.bin so you will be able to re-unlock after running an RUU.

so is this device slated for official JB?

I have no idea what you guys are talking about hopefully when the update is available I'll just push it then just live with the blotware until I can figure out how to root. I need to do some research.

first download and install these drivers: revolutionary drivers

then,download this small file:
mini-adb.zip

-unzip it,and place the unzipped folder onto the root of your C drive(not inside a folder)

-open a cmd window(with win 7,click start bubble,type "command" or "cmd" in hte search box)

-now change to your mini-adb directory(assuming you didnt chagne the name). type in the black cmd window that opened on your PC:
cd c:\mini-adb

-uncheck "fastboot" in settings/power. power the phone off. hold volume down,then power. hold them both until you see the white/colored writing hboot screen

-select "fastboot" from the hboot menu with the vol rocker/power button

-in your cmd window type:
fastboot devices

it should output your phones serial number. if so youre good to go. if not,youre apparently having a driver issue. i usually recomend these drivers from Revolutionary: modified htc drivers download and install the drivers(you should just have to run that file). afterwards,unplug your phone,plug it back in. make sure its in fastboot. as soon as you get a result from "fastboot devices" your ready to procede to the next step.

-in your cmd window,type(or copy/paste,is much easier):
fastboot getvar all

-copy the info that outputs here. it will tell us quite a bit about the firmware youre running.

to reboot bavk to the OS:
fastboot reboot
