    And would the HTC desire 816 custom recovery work for the 510 ?

    Happy to but need more info. Did you use the HTC One as the selected device for HTC Dev unlock?

    And which recovery did you flash specifically? There are several listed on the link in that thread.

    Use 610 or 810 root method

    I'm wondering if we're having a simple misunderstanding. :)

    You said you used the method which you linked in the OP. That method is for an 816. It speaks of unlocking via HTC dev while using the device "HTC One" as the model choice. It also links to recoveries for the 816 which they are using to flash su.zip to obtain root.

    In later posts you are saying to use the 610 or 810 root method. :thinking:

    Could you please detail precisely what you have done to both unlock your bootloader and root it, including links to a specific, working recovery for this device?

    I'm just trying to avoid the potential of folks flashing a non compatible recovery.

    Cheers and thanks. :)

    That's what I meant 816

    You would need the stock recovery.img and flash via fastboot. Not sure if it is available anywhere or not.

    I am very suspicious of using the 816 recovery for either the 510 or 610 since nobody in the xda thread has said whether it works as of this writing but many have asked. I would urge extreme caution to all until more is known.

    i too am confused.. so have you-

    1- rooted your 510?
    2- done so following the exact guide for the 816?
    3- flashed a functioning custom recovery belonging to the 816 on your 510?


    that guide says to flash su via custom recovery. did you flash your su, or were you able to adb after unlocking?

    please give us a little more detail. if you accomplished this youll be the man for the next week or so haha



    if that recovery works ill make a deodex and post in the morning

    Ok, so I unlocked my bootloader via HTCdev and tried flashing the 816 cwm and all I got was just the tampered warning and no access to recovery.

    I just bought this phone Friday and haven't had a chance to check through everything yet :p
    Do we not need to be s off to flash recovery?

    Good luck trying s-off, I tried with firewater temp-root method because the other methods require prior root access. I get a setsoc error. Other rooting methods like root genius fail at 80%. Modifying strings in towelroot doesn't work either. Framaroot crashes. And adb pushing su is a fail as well.

    Are you rooted? I'm unlocked and flashed the 816 cwm recovery per your instructions. This gave me a nice tampered warning on hboot but I also lost access to recovery so I cannot go any further. :thinking: Any thoughts?

    This post should be unsticky-d because it doesn't work. Nobody but the original poster has reported that this method works and he simply links to a root post on XDA for another device anyway.

    This thread has never been stickied. I've been waiting to see if it worked for anyone and it has not.

    Ah, it's been at the top of the list for so long, I assumed it had been stickied.

    My experience has been -

    Unlocking the bootloader was easy enough.

    My device now says "UNLOCKED" and "TAMPERED". Not sure if that's a good thing.

    Recovery doesn't work at all. Selecting it returns me to HBOOT.

    None of the methods I've found for custom recoveries work at all. Using Fastboot to push an image into flash fails. Using the exe provided by cwm fails. Using adb to copy the image onto the device obviously fails (need su for that)

    Right there with ya buddy. I'm thinking that the architecture of our phones isn't recognized by any rooting methods especially one click rooting methods. I might need to bust out my Android build environment and build cwm recovery from scratch. I've not actually done this before but i figure that dumping the boot image is a good start at finding out what we are dealing with. If anybody wants to give me any advice on doing this I am all ears, as well as googleing the $h!t out of it.

    Dump the recovery.img if possible, but not sure how you're going to do that without at least a temp root.

    My recovery is gone, i was hopeful and stupid and followed the op directions.

    I've been suspicious of those recoveries for some time. Mod warning added to OP. Sorry I didn't get it there in time for your device.
