Wondering if anyone can help me.

I rooted my Thunderbolt using Revolutionary, and followed instructions to unroot today. I flashed the ruu in Hboot after changing the name to PG05IMG. Removed the PG05IMG form my SD card. Put the hboot only zip on there AFTER verifying the MD5 sums. Changed the name to PG05IMG. When I go to flash it in Hboot, it says "bypassed" then asks me to reboot system.

What did I do wrong? I am now unrooted, but still have S-off. Any help would be great.

You need to follow the instructions in the OP to remove the revolutionary hboot, you can't flash another hboot on top of it as it will block the flash

you are not doing anything wrong,that is exactly how the "permanent" s-off revolutionary hboot is supposed to work. it protects you from accidentally becoming unrooted if you were to flash a RUU,or accept an OTA. no matter what hboot you flash,it will remain.

first question... why do you want to unroot? if you are simply "tired of being rooted" id strongly suggest you stop now. flashing the 1.70.605.0 firmware unrooted you and made you stock,wich exception of the hboot.

messing with your bootloader is risky business,as a bad flash,or something goes wrong,your phone is a paperweight,as its the bootloaders job to load everything else on the phone. the revolutionary hboot WILL NOT make your phone act any differently than if it had the stock hboot. it will not affect your ability to accept an OTA- you will recieve future updates with no issue.

taking it a step further,its safer,as an s-off hboot will let you flash older firmware if you want,making for a wider variety of things to flash if you were to become "soft bricked" and need to flash new firmware. it also has extended fastboot commands,wich could offer a way back to a working phone in other bricked situations.

however,if you need stock s-on for warranty purposes,youll have to carefully follow the dirctions in the first post to get rig of the revolutionary s-off hboot.

youll need to download the tbolt file,and enter some commands in "fastboot" to unlock the permanent hboot and replace it with one that you can overwrite with the "hboot only" file.

Thanks for the response. I started by simply wanting to unroot, now I've been having other issues with it and may need to replace the device altogether for warranty purposes. I am not sure what to do. I suppose I could wait and see if I do indeed need to warranty replace the tbolt. Is S-Off something they really look for?

They should but who knows Verizon Begins Charging Full Price of Warranty Phones if Rooted? (Updated) - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog

Quote:
Update: Our friends at Verizon saw this post and wanted to reach out to clarify everything immediately. First up, is the fact that their policy says absolutely nothing about checking for root on devices. When a phone is received, a phone is checked for three things and that definitely isn’t one of them. They check to see if the box that the device was sent in is damaged, if the outside of the phone looks awful, and if it powers on – satisfy all of those and they move on to the next phone. So basically, these reports of being charged for a rooted phone simply mean that these people were sending in garbage phone with defects.

Turns out after getting off the phone with Verizon I am going to be returning it for a warranty replacement. Do I take the chance on them discovering it has an S-Off bootloader, or risk permanently bricking it by possible messing up the instructions on the OP? Decisions, decisions.

All on you namoroman, if they reject the return for having it been rooted you will owe full price for the refirb, if it bricks then hopefully they wouldn't be able to tell WTF happened, if you unroot and have no issue then all is well. I know I would try to unroot but I gave up on warranty a long time ago

I am unrooted, all I have left is the S-off bootloader. If all they do is power the phone on and look, there will be no superuser, as the ROM is no longer rooted. They would have to hold volume down and power to boot into recovery to see the Revolutionary at the top and the S-off.

Correct, I don't know how much they actually look, per the update on droidlife I linked/quoted you wouldn't have an issue. I personally wouldn't want to risk it

Do you mean you wouldn't want to risk them finding the bootloader in the altered state?

Correct, I wouldn't want to risk sending in a phone and hoping they don't check as I wouldn't want to pay out of my pocket for a phone

Got ya. Well thanks for the help/advice. I'm about to attempt removing the permanent HBoot. Quick question, it doesn't specifically say to connect the phone to the computer via the cable in the instructions... is that just a given? Do I perform these steps with the phone hooked up to the computer?

*Edit* I got it. I now have stock Hboot and am going to flash to return to S-On. Almost there.

agreed. i wouldnt risk it,either. if you have the insurance,you may just have to turn it into a warranty claim and pay the deductable if they try and charge you full price. if not,then youll have to pay full price.

if you got one coming,go ahead and do the steps. if you brick it,they wont have a clue why. but honestly,its not that hard,or that dangerous IF youre careful. i give that lecture so people wont eff with it un-neccessarily

I turned my tbolt into darkside with Revolutionary for a little while. I played with ROMs. I flashed the stock recovery. It was fine so I was trying to boot it into recovery for flashing other recovery ROMs. White screen stuck, I pulled the battery and put it back then boot it into recovery again. It still stuck. I pulled the battery again and put it back then boot it into recovery. It worked. Is it normal? If I'm tired of push the buttons, how do I use with ADB command with fastboot recovery without push the buttons? I know most of ROMs has fastboot recovery feature but not stock recovery.

if im understanding correctly,you can get into recovery with adb by making sure the device is recognized(type adb devices) then typing adb reboot recovery

however,if you mean the stock recovery as in the recovery that comes onthe phone,there wont be much you can do with it. it has no user interfce whatsoever,and pretty much is only good for manipulaitng the stock firmware,by the stock firmware. if that makes sense.

to flash roms,kernels,etc.,you will need a custom recovery such as amon_ra,clockwork,or twrp

ADB command works well thanks. I ask you guys does Revolutionary CWM good as other CWMs? If I don't like Revolutionary CWM, how do I replace it with CWM, RZR. or TWRP? I do really need CWM UI on stock recovery instead of ADB command.

What clockwork did revolutionary install? If its still 4.0.x.x then there are newer ones,it would be to your advantage to change it.

You can find recoveries in pg05img format at the link above(radios,recoveries,hboot). Download the one you want to use,rename it PG05IMG and flash it in hboot. As with any hboot flash,make sure you delete or rename PG05IMG after you finish the flash

Depends what you mean by reactivate. You will have a working phone, but you will have to resign into google, and reset everything up

I wasn't talking about the setup process, I meant like entering your Verizon passcode to get service. When you pull it out of the box in the mail you have to "activate" your phone. Thanks for clarifying.

no prollem. when you first get the device,you have to call to activate the sim. once you activate your sim,its good to go. you wont have to call to reactivate any phone you put that sim into. so doing a factory reset,flashing ruus,or flashing roms will boot to a funtional,working phone you can call and make texts from,just without any of your personal data,setup or apps

FINALLY seemed to have found a thread to ROOT my TBolt, after countless of searches.

I had the OG Droid when originally released and ROOTED it and loved it especially with the 1-click method ease. Still no luck of such for my Thunderbolt (I've had since released back in March). But getting impatient...

I have no PC access....only Macs around me. Guess that doesn't make it any easier, eh?

sorry,but there is no revolutionary for mac. your best bet is to borrow a windows laptop,or possibly makd a journey to a friends house that has a windows machine. the revolutionary and superuser files are small,so they download quickly,and are not intrusive. the whole process prolly takes 15 minutes at most.

welcom to the forums

I see. Well, this has been Bookmarked so hopefully sooner than later I will jump on this.

I have the latest VZW software update and I'm assuming this is okay as you mentioned above this thread was update for the latest...

Thanks for the welcome

Which radio should I be on to get data after going through this? I've successfully unrooted from CM7, can load into the stock Sense ROM fine and all, and make calls and such, but I have no data.

I'm on the 906 radios currently.

If you are unrooted you can't change your radio. You can flash the stock OTA RUU and that will give you the OTA radio as well

So... I assume the last one listed (RUU_Mecha_GINGERBREAD_S_VERIZON_WWE_2.11.605.5_Rad io_0.01.78.0906w_2__NV_8K_1.41_9K_1.64_release_219 938_signed) is the latest one? I just download it, and run it with my phone connected to my computer?

No I edited the post. Use the RUU from android police [Updated] Exclusive: Gingerbread Build 2.11.605.5 For The HTC Thunderbolt, Fixes Several Issues From Official Gingerbread OTA you rename it PG05IMG.zip and put it on the root of your SD card then boot into hboot and update.

If your basebands are 5th GB (OTA?) 2.11.605.3 1.48.00.0906w 0.01.78.0906w_2 then you are on the current radios.

If you followed scotty's directions here then I think you should be fully up to date with firmware. You may want to check under wireless settings to make sure mobile data is turned on (I only say that because I turned it off in error before and didn't realize it )

Yeah, data is turned on... just not working.

My baseband is 1.48.00.0906w_1, 0.01.78.0906w_2, and my build is 2.11.605.5 CL178661.

This is before flashing the Android Police file.

**EDIT**

AHA! Got it going. Inside my office, I only get 3G, no 4G. Went outside, it got a 4G signal no problem, then when I came back in it handed off to 3G. For whatever reason, it wasn't wanting to pick up on the 3G only in here until it got that 4G connection. I'm good to go. =)

Hey parrc, the easiest way to get on the OTA if you rooted with revolutionary is to flash the stock OTA rom. It is linked in the OP of the thread that Scotty linked.

My phone completely reset recently (I was furious ), and it allowed the OTA Update to occur from an added file using revolutionary (suggested in the forums). It can be found here:

GB OTA has started if you are rooted stock please read this

Although the phone was wiped completely, it was still rooted, and I could use wifi tether. Now a few days later, my phone will not allow wifi tether to be used, even though the superuser program is in the applications. What happened, and do I need to reinstall the revolutionary root?

(Note: When I hold the power and down volume key, the revolutionary hboot still appears, if this helps)

You could try going to settings/applications/manage apps/superuser and clear data.

If that doesn't help,you can just reflash a recovery,then reflash superuser. No need to rerun revoslutionary

I cleared the data, but I am still unable to use wifi tether. How do I reflash the recovery and superuser though?

By the way, thanks for the reply

The recoveries are linked in the second post. Download the one you were using,rename it PG05IMG and flash it in Hboot. Superuser can be found on revoltionarys info page,or at the bottom of the first post.

Some more detailed directions to flash recoveries,radios,or whatever in hboot can be found in the "how to and some root terminology" sticky

Thanks for this thread.

I just got my Tbolt yesterday, (previously was using a rooted Incredible running OMGB).

I have an app that will not work properly on my Tbolt, and it says that it is only compatible with Android 1.5 - 2.2 but it worked fine with OMGB (which is 2.3) on my Incredible, so I'm hoping it will work fine once I put OMGB on my Tbolt.
Plus I just really like OMGB. I love vanilla android, and I don't like bloatware.

I am following the instructions on the Revolutionary website, and on the video you posted.

I am doing this on a Windows-XP laptop.
I installed the fastboot drivers it told me to install, and when I connected my phone, in "charge only" mode, it couldn't find the drivers for it.
And when I ran Revolutionary it just said "waiting for device" and it never did anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You will need the drivers for it to get it to find the phone. I have heard of others using HTC sync to get the drivers installed.
