    I am currently on the oxygen Hboot and im looking to change to the cm7 hboot.

    I have copied the PB99IMG.zip to SD, it gives me the option to start the update which i do, but then it says Bootloader: Bypassed

    And it does not change the hboot. Any idea on the problem?

    Thanks

    Is it that you're trying to put the same hboot on that you already have?

    Fastboot better than PB99

    Which Oxygen hboot, and which CM7? The ones currently on the alpharev site ("r2" versions) or the originals?

    If the answer is "Oxygen r2, original CM7" then you might have fallen foul of the "downgrade protection" in the new alpharev hboots. In that case you would have to load the "downgrader hboot" (from alpharev.nl) before flashing the old CM7. And as that involves 2 hboot changes, it would be better done using fastboot, as that way you can flash one straight after the other (I can think of a way of doing that with PB99IMG, but it involves a computer and a USB cable anyway so you may as well use fastboot).

    If it's original Oxygen, or CM7 r2, then I don't know - I've done the PB99IMG thing many times and never met this problem.
