    Hi I have problem to use Odin3

    After upgrade from Android GingerBread 2.3.5 to Android IceColdSandwich 4.03 I have problem with Internet access on Desktop through USB. Simple USB mode on ICS 4.0.3 is not exsisted I contant with his Author -Lord Clokan, ask his advice, but he only tell me to download new tested version of ICS 4.0.3. anyway my conclusion is ANDROID 4.0.3 IceColdSanwich is very bad!!!!!! non stable version now I am understood that Android Gingerbread 2.3 much better, even desighn is not good like ICS but it have Internet pass-through mode! its more important than other fancy, but useless screen picture.

    OK I need help to downgrade from Android ICS 4.03 to Gingerbread 2.3, where to find file for HTC Desire HD in Odin3 -for Bootloader, PDA, Phone, CSC file, please help me if you already use ODIn3 v1.83:rolleyes:

    Odin isn't used on HTC handsets, you need a recovery image like Clockwork or Amon Ra.

    Before you flashed ICS, did you take a backup of whatever was on there before hand? You can just restore that.

    Is there an app called ROM Manager on the phone?

    What do you want to do, do you want to return to stock (no root etc), or do you want to try another custom ROM running Gingerbread?

    In ROM Manager, it should tell you at the top if there is a version of CWM recovery flashed? Is there? I don't think you need internet to see that option.

    Right! in the Rom Manager v4.4.0.7 in Recovery -have Flash ClockworkMod Recovery: You must have the ClockworkMod Recovery installed to flash and restore ROMs! so when I push this botton it says - Error while downloading from server.Please make sure that you have a stable internet connection, and that your SD card is inserted and has free space! OK

    When I turn off phone, push to Volume bottom & Energy bottom it directly comes to ClockworkMod Recovery v5.0.2.7 ACE HACK KIT etc is it correct?

    Ok I come to ClockworkMod Recovery -backup and restore- Advanced-Nandroid -advanced restore -and push it so it tell me:

    ClockworkMod Recovery v5.0.2.7 couldn`t open directory. No files found> and repeat it 3 times, so what should I do? Does it means I could not return back to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread using ClockworkMod Recovery because its not saved previous version (thanks handyman who upgraded my phone & turned to bricket!)?? May be I should try to use other way like using ODin3, I saw it many peoples using it to downgrade from ICS to Gingerbread?

    Here is cool for me, I'm night shift and at work so time isn't an issue. I can't access stuff like yahoo messenger here anyway. If I get busy, I might need to do some work though so don't panic if I can't answer you straight away.

    If the backup isn't an option, you'll have to flash another ROM. Do you want something different, or do you want something like HTC put on the phone by default?

    Who installed ICS by the way? Can you take it back and get them to restore your previous setup? I can say with 100% certainty that Odin isn't going to help you, it only works for Samsung handsets.

    Unfortunatelly he dont like do recover (cause he said dont use-dont know well this version?!) so no any warranty! kkk
    Anyway today I am downgraded my bricket from Android 4.0.3 IceColdSandwich (Thanks Lord ClockaN! kkk) to ANdroid 2.3.7. Well my 1st impression it little be better than 4.0.3, BUT it still have not Internet Passthrogh mode! which I extremely need to install & activated any neccesary programms. So i geuss i need again downgrade till 2.0 Android (Most of important it should be Officiall ROM with Internet passthrough) Unfortunatelly in our country, even in capital we dont have much WiFi -only ADSL, Broadband.
    Im also interesting CyanogenMod 7, does it stable? have official ROM, does it have Internet passthrough mode?

    Hi :)

    This forum section is the Desire HD. If your device is the HTC Desire, you will need to post in that forum so that people with the same device can help you out.

    If you like I can move your post for you over there for you? Let me know :)
