    Can you give me a link for the latest RUU? And what is the stock firmware?

    the one i would usually recomend is the wwe european 3.12.405.1: Shipped ROMs

    but again,you dont really need to run an ruu.

    firmware= the bits of the ruu that are not software(radio,hboot,couple others)
    stock= what the phone came with

    stock firmware will be installed when an ruu is run.

    i have a feeling you are not understanding the way to install a new hboot without running the ruu.

    the hboot packages in the download are zip files that can be installed just like the firmware in the original directions,and like the recovery i gave you a link for. just put the hboot zip file into your adb/fastboot folder and install in this manner:
    if youre working with a booted,operational phone,you can flsh the file in the following manner:

    -open a cmd window

    -change to adb/fastboot directory
    cd c:\foldername
    (cd c:\mini-adb if youve used any of my guides :))

    -place the zip file you want to flash into adb/fastboot directory

    -enable usb debug,disable fastboot,plug in phone

    -check for connectivity
    adb devices (should return serial number)

    -boot to fastboot
    adb reboot bootloader

    -check for connectivity again
    fastboot devices

    -flash the file
    fastboot erase cache

    fastboto oem rebootRUU (will put you in ruu mode,black screen silver htc letters)

    fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip (will send and flash the file. dont interupt it while the cmd window shows its writinging,and the green status bar is moving on the phone screen)

    *sometimes a file will fail with a pre-update error. this is normal,just enter again:
    fastboot flash zip zipfilename.zip
    and this time it will finish

    -when you get "finished" and "OK"
    fastboot reboot-bootloader (takes you back to fastboot)

    -reboot back to the OS
    fastbooot reboot

    you can use this if you dont have an operational phone as well. you just need to manually put the phone in fastboot(select from hboot menu) then skip the "adb" commands and start with fastboot devices

    now,does that help? :)

    Stock firmware is the firmware that came on the phone originally - it would be as if the phone had just come out of the box.

    Here is a link to the Sense 3.0 RUU :)

    [EDIT - looks like Scotty got there while I was typing :rolleyes: (that'll teach me to walk away from my laptop without finishing my post) - the download link I've given is for the same RUU as Scotty mentions]

    Where can I get hboot zip? I can download hboot from HTCdev too. :) So u not recommend me hboot_7230_Ace_0.85.2425_110411 hboot from ace tools?

    What about hboot_7230_Ace_2.00.2728_110907? Can I install it as pd98img?

    Thank you. I have 2 DHDs and flashed the latest RUU (WWE_3.12.405.1) on them. In first DHD I have all languages, but in other one I don't have all. What is the problem?

    if you flashed 3.12.405.1 on both of them,i have no idea. :eek: are they both stock,or have you made mods to one or both of them?

    Hmm that's very odd indeed. Maybe there is a setting somewhere enabling extended languages? Failing that,my only idea is to flash a 3.12.405.1 rom that has the languages. Or maybe try installing the ruu a second time.

    Hi Scotty, I have downloaded everything that I think I need to downgrade root and upgrade (I think) my HTC Inspire 4g. I put my phone into fastboot then go to the cmd promt and it wont show me my phone when I put in < C:/Admin>cd \Android It tells me " 'C:/Admin' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or patch file. "

    What am I doing wrong??

    for starters that command is funky,and the adb utility does not recognize C:/Admin

    i would recomend following the directions here,where you download the miniadb file,extract it,and place the extracted(unzipped) folder onto the root of your c drive.

    at this point,open your cmd and enter at the prompt:

    cd c:\foldername

    i.e.,with a folder named "miniadb_inspire":

    cd c:\miniadb_inspire

    hope that helps. :)

    Hey Scotty. So I managed to get my phone rooted, didnt get to try for s-off. Now I have another question for you. My phone has Gingerbread 2.3.5, I have SU working, the only ROM Ive been able to get working is cleardroid 1.4.1 . I have tried to flash ICS but it only gets me a white HTC screen. So here is my question, is there a way a upgade from GRB to ICS, and if so is there a thread where I can read up on it?

    Thanks Scotty for your help

    So after much searching I found and D.L. the Klutsh Gold Card tool, but the link to send off the CID doesnt work, and I cant make a gold card in the CMD window. I think I am short the Gold card img. ???? Then my next is where do I get the downgrade firmware? There is a zip folder in my mini adb file but I dont know if it is it. I might be in over my head. I want to believe Im not but Im starting to feel like I am.

    Have you allready unlocked your bootloader,installed a recovery,and flashed superuser using the directions in the linked thread? If not,let's start with that.

    If you're ready for this thread,everything you need is in the ace-tools download described at the top of post 2. It does contain your downgrade firmware and the utility to make the gold card in the cmd window.

    As for being over your head,we've helped lots of folks thru it. I know its a lot of steps,but read everything carefully and go slow. Remember,taking small bites you can eventually eat an elephant! :)

    Yes I have allready unlocked my bootloader,installed a recovery(4ext),and flashed superuser to my phone. I have the ace tools, am I to move parts from Ace to my mini adb file? I am trying to go slow, I've read so much stuff I can't keep it all straight. lol I appreciate all the help you have and will give me.

    Looks like your "goldcard" file does not exist in your "C:\Android SDK\sdk\platform-tools" directory (if that's the error(s) you are referring to).

    Best luck! :)

    Firstly I admit being a noob, I should not have tried this but scotty gave such a simple tutorial for rooting inspire4g.:) I could not resist myself. Anyways I followed scotty's other thread(locked now) and completed the root and s-off by downgrading my 3.20.502.52 and using aahk.:smokingsomb: (Felt like i'm top of the world)

    I also made a backup of my stock rom and after rooting the phone was working fine. I wanted to get back to stock rom which I had backed up using ext4. When i go to hboot and restore my stock rom, I am now stuck at white htc logo screen. My current hboot details are :

    hboot : 0.85.2425
    radio : 26.10.04.03_M

    In hindsight I should have lived with 2.2 rooted/s-off state. Dont know what I did wrong, but could you help please? Being a noob, loved your tutorial. God Bless you mate.

    Edit : I am able to run ext4 recovery thru fastboot but cannot flash the backed up stock rom nor can i flash custom rom (inspiremod-0.5.zip) from sdcard. Both lead to frozen htc logo white screen.

    you may just be having issues with older firmware,and trying to run newer roms. sense 3+ roms require a newer hboot.

    i think i would run the 3.20.502.52 ruu. you can find .exe and .zip versions here: Shipped ROMs

    after the install completes,boot the phone and make sure all is well. once youre comfortable,install a recovery from post 3 of this thread. at that time you can install superuser to run rooted stock,or try one of your other roms,or try restoring your stock backup.

    just holler if you have questions :)
