    OK let me explain. I am unrooted, relocked, and s-on. I recently downloaded the leaked stock vzw ICS RUU and everything went great. Just yesterday I decide to be brave and install the new ICS update through the boot loader following popular instruction from XDA. Since the attempted update, my phone boots to the 4g kte screen and stops. I have tried to use bootloader to install gb or the original ics ruu, but it keeps telling me that versions are wrong and reboots.

    I am lost as to what to do next! I am a noob of couse, but any suggestioins/solutions would be great!

    If it boots to recovery/fastboot, it sure isn't bricked... Quick and easy fix that will get you where you were trying to go, download the RUU from Android Police and flash: [Exclusive Download] Full RUU Build 4.03.605.2 For The HTC Rezound

    Might have to copy to SD card via a card reader or something though.

    If you can get to hboot, it should work...

    Copy the file to the sdcard, rename it PH98IMG.zip (careful of Windows double .zip.zip), then power off and back on holding vol down and power until the update process begins, should get you back in business. Good luck!

    That's cuz your mainversion was older, HTC says no dice to rolling backward to anything that predates what's currently on your phone (if s-on). Why? They work so hard to patch underground root/s-off methods when they make updates that they don't want us rolling back to an older version for which a root tool existed. And I guess to be fair there could eventually be hboot/radio conflicts with newer software if the phone is around long enough. Kind of getting to be a moot point anymore with htc dev but it's not exactly the pot at the end of the rainbow either.

    Anyway, as long as your bootloader is relocked, you should always be able to load the most current RUU, which appears to be linked a couple posts back.
