I HARD reset and went to upgrade my firmware to 2.2 and it says there is no update available?
If you On 2.1 and its saying that your gonna have to download and install the ROM yourself after your rooted......Or Wait for another OTA to be released
I'm not sure if HTC has a thing about not letting a device get the same update twice
IT'S A different device since the update....i had my phone replaced
Go under settings and about phone and look up your software version. And post it here it asl your friend did was what you said and tried to root your stock froyo phone with 1 click root, than it would not work and you are still on 2.2 he couldn't magically make your phone go to 2.1 without doing a long process involving running a ruu.
When you had your phone replaced did it come with 2.1 or 2.2?
Regardless even if it was updated at the Store it may no let you update again since Downgrading isnt allowed
Im still trying to understand how your friend downgraded you using simple root
FIRMWARE VERSION: 2.1-update 1
Baseband Version: 1.39.00.04.26
Kernal Version: 2.6.29-a2443432 htc-kernal@and18-2#1
Build number: 1.32.651.1 CL171253 test-keys
Software Number: 1.32.651.1
Browser Version: Webkit 3.1
PRI Version: 1.40_003
PRL Version: 60670
I have no clue what any of this means...when i go to my SD card total space and available space say "Unavailable"
That's is just ur typical software info some needs to be updated but what I still don't get if why u have no space at all on ur SD/card. Ur friend totally ****ed u up.
do you think i can go to a sprint store and play dumb? is there a way to fix this?
Try that. U have nothing to loose at this point.
I think I know what happened...I got my phone back from Assurance 2 days ago(evo was dipped in water) and was able to root with 2.2(phone came as). I did that 2.2 root method but somehow NAND was not unlocked.
I could not flash to a Custom rom and my phone was stuck at 2.1 and if you tried to update to 2.2 it would download but freeze at installation and just wouldn't pass that.
Seems like you'll have to Unlock NAND and proceed with custom ROM at this point. That's if your able to get to any Recovery screens?
I may be Wrong but I was stuck at 2.1 rom and someone stated to upgrade to 2.2 to unlock NAND which wasn't the case.
thanx for the info Kewl Kat....but that was all a different language to me lol...
they want me to go into the store.....what should i do?
i was also told they stopped the 2.2 updates cause they were having problems
hey I know you asked your friend to help but I rooted my phone following the simple root method then unlocked nand.
Seems like your not willing to learn much about the process..it's hard to help someone after they are up a creek with no paddle if they don't want to try much to learn about the process.
There is a lot of help on these forums and people are great on here but you have to be willing to learn a little.
If rooted successfully I'm gonna say that u followed the proper procedure. But in his case while looking at the info he gave us here seems like his buddy went straight with Simple Root to root Froyo which is a no go. Unless his friend has done the process to revert 2.2 to 2.1 Simple Root was not an option in the first place.
Im willing to learn....wat would i have to do to recpver 2.2 and continue the rooting process?
I'll be the first to say that I'm a noob here and did the 2.2 reversion method as described in the "2.2 rooted" thread on this site.
My problem was that I tried to get creative by using simpleroot instead of unrevoked, and while I was able to flash a rom, I broke my 4G/Wimax.
I tried unlocking nand to update the radio, but no dice. Long story short. I ended up flashing an image to my card that gave me the 1.17 software version (not a typo, it was 1.17). Still, I could not get out of bootloader.
I searched for "1.36 RUU" and downloaded that, ran it and now I'm back at factory stock.
Like I said, I'm a noob, so please don't flame me but:
1. Would running a 1.47 RUU on the OP's phone fix the problem?
2. My system is now unrooted after running the 1.36 RUU. So I get the $ when I run adb shell command. Could I root again using simpleroot (the right way) without screwing up the 4G and/or the entire phone?\
I intended on helping the OP by having him run the 1.47 RUU, but I don't want to give bad advice, so I'll make that suggestion and let the experts in here make that determination.
Like I said, I am a noob, but willing to learn (just hopefully not the hard way).
Thanks for the sharing the knowledge!
theres no way to return the phone back to stock?!?!?
An HTC RUU should return the phone to stock.
Index of /shipped/Supersonic
The newest one should be froyo, download it, run it from your PC, and follow the directions.
gonna do that now...hopefully i get my 2.2 back
ive been sitting at 1 sec. for the last 20 minutes....wtf?
woofer ur the man!!!!
