    Hello all,

    I have a rooted htc sensation and
    I tried a factory reset for the heck of it but it got me no where. I was going to just say screw it and reinstall the OS v2.3.4 but i can't seem to find a download for it.

    Does anyone know where i can get a fresh install for v2.3.4?

    thank you!

    sensation xe was used in alot of different configurations of branded and unbranded OS's.

    if you are supercid and s off,you could use literally any of them,but if youre s on,youll need to use the correct ruu. if you could do the following,and paste the results here it will give us some basic info:

    first download and install these drivers: revolutionary drivers (mirror)

    then,download this small file:
    mini-adb.zip

    -unzip it,and place the unzipped folder onto the root of your C drive(not inside a folder)

    -open a cmd window(with win 7,click start bubble,type "command" or "cmd" in hte search box)

    -now change to your mini-adb directory(assuming you didnt chagne the name). type in the black cmd window that opened on your PC:
    cd c:\mini-adb

    -pull the battery in your phone for a few seconds. hold volume down,then power. hold them both until you see the white/colored writing hboot screen

    -select "fastboot" from the hboot menu with the vol rocker/power button

    -in your cmd window type:
    fastboot devices

    it should output your phones serial number. if so youre good to go. if not,youre apparently having a driver issue. i usually recomend these drivers from Revolutionary: modified htc drivers download and install the drivers(you should just have to run that file). afterwards,unplug your phone,plug it back in. make sure its in fastboot. as soon as you get a result from "fastboot devices" your ready to procede to the next step.

    -in your cmd window,type(or copy/paste,is much easier):
    fastboot getvar all

    -copy the info that outputs here. right click in your cmd window,click mark,highlight it all in white. hit enter. paste the info here. it will help us know which ruu for you to run. :)

    make sure to xxxx out your meid and esn :)

    if you know what build you need,you can find some here:
    Shipped ROMs
