    However, your last statement:
    left me a little uncomfortable. IF the ROM.img is flashable via the SD card, say the CM10.1 image, then it should be flashable with the fastboot... right?? I mean, they should have the 'same' requirements. Especially, IF you are S-Off.


    on your first question,zips intended to flash in recovery,i.e.,roms, are put together differently than zip files intended to be installed by the bootloader.

    as such,cm10.1 will have to be installed via recovery,and the PH98IMG type files will have to be installed using hboot and the sd card,or fastboot and ruu mode(as described here)

    Yes, after sending the reply last evening, I UN-zipped an RUU from HTC and a ROM from CM10. They are different

    google will find alot of places that list commands and their basic format. unfortunately,ive never see one that lists commands,and gives a noob friendly explanation of exactly what each one does,and give a less confusing example of its usage.

    ive basically just been figuring stuff out as i go... theres defiantely alot i do not know about adb and fastboot... so if you come across such a sight,id be interested to see it! :)

    this is why i dont like toolkits. they dont usually offer much support when things go wrong,and teach you little about what your actually doing if you need to do things manually.

    you have 2 options:
    1)re-unlock your bootloader. you can use your original token if you still have it. otherwise,you can get a new token.

    from here you can restore a backup,or flash a new rom. rference this thread for rom flashing info: http://androidforums.com/rezound-all-things-root/587430-s-want-flash-roms-read.html

    2)run an ruu. on hboot 2.25, you need the this ruu: 3.14.605.12

    it can be flashed from a FAT32 firmatted sd card by renaming PH98IMG,place on the root of the sd,and boot to hboot from powered off.

    it can also be flashed from fastboot/ruu mode by using the directions in the OP. the following should help you sort your connectivity issues:
    holler if you have further questions :)

    im here. thanks for all the info. im still very new to this so im learning all this on the fly. just a few questions. what is a fat32? im currently running a windows 7 64 bit and at all cost if possible i don't want to unlock this bootloader . i came across a file i was told can put me on complete stock.

    ota-global-stock- 4.05.605.605.14 710rd-rooted.zip

    and otapkg.zip
    and does " op" mean other post?? i think the second option may be more helpful. let me try it and see what happens.

    make sure you have changed to your adb/fastboot directory!
    does this mean go into the cmd prompt and type in "adb fastboot recovery"

    i checked my drivers in device manager and it says to be working properly. also when i went to click on the link a webpage popped up stating that the download is now being blocked....

    i ran the cmd prompt and when i tryped in adb devices in the window i received this message. daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037
    daemon started successfully
    list of devices attached
    then i typed in your next heading fastboot devices. this heading came up
    c:\users\sony. with a lot of commands here we go..

    Ht1a1s224547 fastboot
    c:users\sony>fastboot device
    usage:fastboot[ <option> ] <command>
    commands:
    update <filename>
    flashall
    flash<partition>[ <filename>]
    erase <partition>
    format <partition>
    gervar <variable>
    boot <kernel> [<ramdisk>]
    flash:raw boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk>]
    devices
    continue
    reboot
    reboot-bootloader
    help
    options:
    -w
    -u
    -s <specific device> -l
    -p<product>
    -c< cmdline>
    -i<vendor id>
    -b <base_addr>
    -n <page size>
    2048
    -s <size> [k;m;g]

    then i have directions
    reflash device from update.zip flashboot + recovery+ system write a file to a flash partition earse a flash partition format a flash partition display a bootloader variable download and boot kernel create bootimage and glash it list all connected devices continue with autoboot rebot device normally reboot device into bootloader show this help message erase userdata and cache < and format if supported by partition type do not first erase partition before formatting specify device serial number or path to device port with "devices lists device paths specify product name override kernel commandline specify a custom usb vendor id specify a custom kernel base address specify the name page size. defaults automatically sparse files greater than size.0 to disable.


    that was it. now how does this help me get out of purgatory?

    what are your reservations about unlocking the bootloader? unfortunately,an RUU for your build does not exist,so re-unlocking may be your only option.

    OP=original post

    "make sure you have changed to your adb/fastboot directory!" means that to run commands,you need to be in the directory that contains those utilities. if you have used any of my guides,you use a file called "miniadb" and the directions tell you how to change to it with a command: cd c:\foldername assuming you put the folder onthe root of C

    since youve not used any of my guides,and youy used a toolkit to unlock,you may not have such a folder set up :eek: use these directions to download and set up the miniadb folder:
    onward with your prollem,you cant install the zip youre trying to install.
    ota-global-stock- 4.05.605.605.14 710rd-rooted.zip is a rom thats flashed with a custom recovery(twrp,amon,cw)
    otapkg.zip is the actual ota that needs the stock recovery to apply. it will only work if youre on a working,official release build older than what you have.

    ********************************************************

    how did your phone come to be in the state that its in?

    if it were working and functional,just unlock the bootloader.

    from there you can re-install the stock rom and reflash the firmware,wich in the end will leave you stock and relocked

    links for the rom and official firmware are found in this thread:http://androidforums.com/rezound-all-things-root/716364-newest-global-rom.html

    along with s-on directions to install(post 5) just dont re-unlock at the end,of you wish to stay stock and relocked.

    gotta get to work,ill check on you later this evening if you have more questions :)
