    Hi all,

    I tried looking for this topic but google returned no success.
    I had rooted 1X and than returned back to the stock ROM. Once I got back I received couple of OTA updates. Now I wonder is there a way to do the recovery image of current ROM in my 1X so once I put a custom ROM don't have to look for initially installed ROM and do OTA again?

    if im understanding this correctly,you were unlocked and rooted. now you wish to install a recovery and make a nandroid backup.

    when you went back to the stock rom,did you relock? if not,then you just need to install or temporarily boot a recovery,and make a backup.

    if your NOW RELOCKED,what firmware are you on?

    if youre on,then you need to have unlocked and superCIDed pn something older(1.85 or older).

    if youre superCIDed and have your original unlock_code.bin,you can just boot to fastboot and reflash it,and re-unlock your bootloader,then install/boot recovery. be aware that unlocking will wipe your personal data.

    if you dont have your original unlock_code.bin,i *think* htcdev will still work as long as you superCIDed earlier(wich was a prerequisite for htcdev ulocking),so you can try going to and starting the process over.

    im new to this device,but i hope that helps :)
