[Sprint] Getting force closes after flashing new rom, even my nandroid backup is force closing/rebooting

    It seems I have no baseband on my phone after flashing new rom. I still have custom recovery, adb & fastboot work and I can sideload different roms but I can barely make it through set-up before it force closes. Could this be a hardware issue? Last thing I did before the screw-up was to flash Elite Lunar kernel.

    (bootloader) version: 0.5
    (bootloader) version-bootloader: 1.56.0000
    (bootloader) version-baseband: N/A
    (bootloader) version-cpld: None

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Tried running RUU but the .exe is giving me an error of 'ARUGlobal.dll is not installed'....how do I fix this? Is it a bad download, bad Windows 7 registry??

    Sounds like your zip is not set up for ruu mode flashing,and your command in the first post is not correct.

    I'd highly advise against continuing trying to flash unsigned radio files.

    Your best bet is to continue with the ruu. The .exe is a self contained application,so you shouldn't need to install anything. Temporarily disable securities and try redownloading the .exe. its not uncomon for security programs to pull "suspicious" parts out of your download.

    If you have to,you can extract rom.zip and flash it in ruu mode(i can post instructions for that later when I'm at an actual computer)

    in case you need it:
    extract rom.zip
    the .exe utilities can be finicky,so if you have trouble getting it to run, you can extract "rom.zip" in the following manner:
    -start the utility
    -check the "i understand" box to move on to the next screen
    -hide the utility temporarily out of site
    -search your C drive for "rom.zip". you will find it in a temporary location(it will be in a different spot each time you run the utility)
    -open the folder location,and transfer rom.zip to a safe location on your PC.
    -unhide and cancel the utility,youre done with it.
    -rom.zip can be renamed to PxxxIMG and flashed in hboot,from a FAT32 sd card

    flash rom.zip with fastboot/ruu mode:
    if youre working with a booted,operational phone,you can flsh the file in the following manner:

    -open a cmd window

    -change to adb/fastboot directory
    cd c:\foldername
    (cd c:\mini-adb if youve used any of my guides :))

    -place the zip file you want to flash into adb/fastboot directory

    -enable usb debug,disable fastboot,plug in phone

    -check for connectivity
    adb devices (should return serial number)

    -boot to fastboot
    adb reboot bootloader

    -check for connectivity again
    fastboot devices

    -flash the file
    fastboot erase cache

    fastboto oem rebootRUU (will put you in ruu mode,black screen silver htc letters)

    fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip (will send and flash the file. dont interupt it while the cmd window shows its writinging,and the green status bar is moving on the phone screen)

    *sometimes a file will fail with a pre-update error. this is normal,just enter again:
    fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip
    and this time it will finish

    -when you get "finished" and "OK"
    fastboot reboot-bootloader (takes you back to fastboot)

    -reboot back to the OS
    fastbooot reboot

    you can use this if you dont have an operational phone as well. you just need to manually put the phone in fastboot(select from hboot menu) then skip the "adb" commands and start with fastboot devices

    Hey, Scotty. I was able to restore with RUU. I was getting a error because I didn't unzip the RUU file before trying to run it (doh!) . So all is good here...back on the Bad Boys deoxed Rom, running the Weeping Angel stock sense kernel.

    Thanks for your help. I can always count on you for steering me straight.
