So I decided that it would probably be a good idea to get a thread going of all the different images (at least system, boot and recovery) for the rise. I know there are quite a few different versions of the firmware on this phone and I only have 1 phone (Sprint). If anybody has images to add to the list (I will write a guide for making images in the 2nt post), go ahead and post them and I'll try to get them up in the OP (they can be rooted). Although I will only be putting recovery/kernel/system images on the OP, the other partitions may still be helpful so if you wish, go ahead and post them as well (other than data and cache, we don't need to know what you do with your phone, plus they are generated). WARNING! Flashing images with a locked bootloader can easily Brick Your Phone! I am not responsable if you end up bricking your phone doing anything described in this thread. Don't do it unless you know what you are doing. WARNING! Fastboot flashing a system partition will cause the kernel not to mount the system partition on next reboot. Use the dd command for system Sprint: --1.011SP images-- (None Yet) --1.003SP images-- (None Yet) --1.005SP images-- Boot: mmcblk0p8 Mirror 1 Recovery:mmcblk0p15 Mirror 1 System: mmcblk0p12.zip Mirror 1 Virgin Mobile: --1.004VM images-- (Thanks sneaky_1 and TechDad378) Boot: mmcblk0p8 Recovery:mmcblk0p15 System: mmcblk0p12 Original --1.000VM images-- (None Yet) Public Mobile: --1.002PM images-- (Thanks smartmanvartan) Boot: mmcblk0p8 Mirror 1 Recovery:mmcblk0p15 Mirror 1 System: mmcblk0p12 Mirror 1 Original F.A.Q Q. How do I know which version my phone is running? A. Go into settings>About Phone> and look at the Software Version field Q. This images says mmcblk0p* and I do not know which image is which. How do I find out? A. Here is a list of known partitions and their names (based on recovery.fstab in my stock recovery): [HIGH]boot mmcblk0p8 cache mmcblk0p13 data mmcblk0p20 misc mmcblk0p17 recovery mmcblk0p15 sdcard mmcblk1p1 system mmcblk0p12 sysprop mmcblk0p17 carrier mmcblk0p18[/HIGH] Q. How do I use these Images? Flashing images with a locked bootloader can easily brick your phone if you do not know what you are doing. A. 2 ways. You can either dd the images with a command similar to: [HIGH]dd if=/sdcard/mmcblk0p15 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p15[/HIGH] (which works for system but not recovery or boot) or you can use fastboot (part of the android developer kit, like adb you have to have the drivers installed, will cause system to not boot if you use it for flashing system images) [HIGH]adb reboot bootloader (wait a few minutes for your computer to see your phone) fastboot flash recovery mmcblk0p15[/HIGH] An interesting note about fastboot: You can set up a bootimage (kernels and recoveries) for a single boot by using the command [HIGH]fastboot boot mmcblk0p15[/HIGH] and then there is adb reboot oem-unlock, which allows you to fastboot boot unsigned images after it finishes, although only for a short amount of time. Another interesting note: The Rise is kernel compatible with the Kyocera Hydro. For me at least, I was able to flash a hydro kernel into my recovery slot and watch it boot my phone (with understandable issues like lack of keyboard back-light). Again, don't flash any images unless you know what you are doing! Q. How do I make these Images? A. I will go through the process of making images in my post.
