    I know I posted a thread on wanting to unroot it. But I'm just wanting to root it again so I can get beats audio back. I wanna keep the stock rom though. So if anybody has a complete guide on how to unlock the bootloader, root it, and install beats audio on it, let me know. Thanks for looking.

    You happen to have the instructions for Energy Rom from August 6th? I know more about it that's the only reason I'd rather have it. Just for security lol.

    Yeah I'm just wanting instructions on how to flash it. I'm already downloading it (waiting forever).

    once youre rooted and unlocked and have installed a custom recovery of your choosing, you would enter the bootloader and select recovery. (volume and power to start the phone.) --->Make a backup before you change anything from the recovery menu. <--- (very important.) Wipe data, wipe cache, and wipe dalvik. Now you can flash your ROM (energy or whichever one you choose, all roms can be installed this way.) :)

    Okay. Got any other sources where I could download that from? It said I have 18 hours left on the download and at the rate it was going it would probably take that long. I know it's not my internet cuz I can usually download stuff pretty quick, plus I wouldn't be able to run call of duty and stuff like that smoothly.

    It didn't find it. I'll probably just have to wait on it. Cuz I wanna keep htc sense lol. I'll get back to you in a few days and let you know if I was successful or not.

    Ugh this is annoying me. I'm STILL stuck trying to unlock the bootloader. First off the android sdk doesn't have the avd manager like it does on the instructions, second, I can't find the files it wants me to. It says: On your computer create a new folder (For Example: C:\Android) where we will be putting the following 3 files in this new folder:

    adb.exe
    AdbWinApi.dll
    fastboot.exe


    Where am I supposed to find those files??????? Pull em out of my ass? lol somebody plz help, sorry if I'm asking noob questions.

    No worries,
    you should actually just use Hansoons tool.
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1694351&highlight=root+tool
    Its really simple to use, and is virtually impossible to mess up.
    you can also flash 4ext recovery using this tool.
    *4ext is the best recovery for non s-off users.
    Dont be afraid to ask for help, there are no stupid questions. :D

    It's already s-off lol so what do I use instead?
  17. xXchrizhurtyXx

    xXchrizhurtyXx Well-Known Member

    I am s-off and i still use 4ext ;)
    Its pretty much the best around. Constantly updated.

    Another reason why to use 4ext is because you dont need an ext-sd card, you can use the phones sd card.

    So this program actually roots the phone? I'll be able to put Energy Rom on it? Oh, I'll probably need instructions on that. I never was this confused when I was messing with my Nexus S. This is ridiculous haha

    Ok so follow the steps in the tool.
    After flashing a custom recovery (CHOOSE 4EXT lol)
    you can download energyrom and put it on your phone. Then boot into recovery and install energyrom. But before you should do a full wipe.

    Okay. Another problem. It won't let me run the program. It wanted me to install WinZip. Then I go to use WinZip it expects me to pay for the shit. There another way?

    you can easily just use 7zip or winrar.
    BTW if you want i can make a video explaining this step by step.

    Actually, do that. The whole process lol.

    Lol alright well give me some time to do this.
    I should be done pretty quick actually.
