    Hey everyone,

    I have searched XDA and this forum but i couldn't find a sollution and i saw several people with this problem.

    Recently i rooted my phone via this tutorial. Thumbs up for CafeKampuchia http://androidforums.com/wildfire-s-all-things-root/480954-guide-how-root-wildfire-s-s-finally.html

    After flashing CWM, i can't get into recovery (via HBOOT). When i try this it gives the HTC white screen.

    Stock recovery works for somepeople but not for me either. What i really want is to either backup stockrom on a different way or being able to flash custom or stockrom (downloaded).

    My phone specs are: HTC Wildfire S, marvel A510e, Bootloader unlocked, Rooted, Radio-7.54.39.28M, Andriod 2.3.5, HTC sence: 2.1, Current Recovery: ClockworkMod 5.0.2.8, Super SU. Hboot 1.09.0099

    The first thing I'd try is re-flashing the CWM Recovery and verify that I downloaded and flashed the right file.

    It's only a day old. I doubt anyone here has tried it. With no info in the OP, who knows what it is [​IMG]

    Thanks, i did. Actually flashed CWM 5.0.2.6 and 5.0.2.8. Aswell as RZR Recovery[Raidzero][Marvel]. If anyone has the same problem see the solution in this XDA POST: No recovery still can root,can falsh any rom,just use this. - xda-developers

    Lol, yeah i figgured that out, i ment if someone ever heard of such a way to flash a rom without recovery. Did someone ever used such a tool.

    Anyway i did it and it worked! Have flashed a STOCK ROM, eu version. See thread on XDA for screenies.

    My only worries right now are that the ROM could be modified in such a way that it automatically uploads (invisable) private data....
    Is there any chance this could be the case? If so can i monitor this?

    I honestly don't know enough to answer that question clearly. I know it's possible. Vendors do it all the time to monitor non-sensitive info about the operation of the device. But I doubt that most ROM mods have the capability to do so even if they have the motive. I don't know how you'd monitor such activity in Android.

    Ok, thnx i'll check XDA to see if someone can make this flashing tool work with a trusted rom.

    The OP said:
    I do not trust this -_-'

    I'm wondering if your messed up recovery partition could be repaired by flashing a stock ROM by running the RUU with the phone in bootloader/fastboot USB mode. It would require you to temporarily relock the bootloader and loose root, but redoing that is a piece of cake.
