    Hello!

    I have a problem with recovery. I'm using HTC Desire 2.3.3.
    Yesterday i rooted it but today i needed to unroot it. I rooted it with Revolutionary and made a recovery with it(could this be the reason?). I unrooted it using Alpharev. I managed to put S-ON.

    Everything is working well except the recovery. It gives a Red triangle and when i hold volume up + power, it says E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command.
    Other options in that menu are available.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Revolutionary doesn't root, it s-offs. So you flashed their recovery?

    You are still unrooted at this point.

    What exactly did you do then?

    Please explain in detail.

    At the red triangle, press vol up and power. At the error mmessage press it again. You should then get into HTC recovery. It's pretty.useless though

    Yes i flashed their recovery.

    Then i got S-off and rooted using this guide: http://androidforums.com/desire-all...ry-windows-published-4th-november-2011-a.html

    Today i unrooted and put S-ON using this guide at xda-developers.com

    For RUU i used 2.3 update (at HTCdev website).

    At this point Security is ON (S-ON) and phone is working fine put the recovery mode at the boot screen is giving me a red triangle. I think if i can't fix this then I'm going to have problems with warranty.

    Unrooting using the RUU replaces the custom recovery with the standard (not very useful) HTC one. So to me it sounds like it's done what you'd expect.

    If you still had clockworkmod recovery then you would have trouble with the warranty.

    Exactly that red triangle is part of HTC recovery like I already said. This is as expected. What is your ultimate goal?

    Thank you! I didn't know that the red triangle is a part of the HTC recovery.

    That's understandable - until they root most people never see the recovery.

    Was there a fix to this? I Rooted my Inc 2 with Revolutionary, and then wanted to Unroot, and go back to 2.3.4, so I could sell my phone, and I'm stuck at 2.2.1 with S-ON...

    There was nothing to fix. The OP had wanted to unroot, and had unrooted, but didn't know that the "red triangle" is what the recovery would look like after this and hence thought that something was broken.

    Most of us in this forum don't know the Incredible, so cannot give very detailed advice on that. I assume you've unrooted using an RUU that loaded 2.2.1, so if you want a later software version you need to find a newer RUU. S-On isn't a problem - if you want it running official HTC software it will be S-On, and S-Off is not required to run an RUU.
