    RUU's recoveries and such?

    Right now not even HTC has this phone on their dev site, but it looks like there are a couple euro RUU's for it. I don't want to brick the thing, so holding out for a good recovery tool (twrp or cwm) before really getting into things.

    It DOES unlock just fine, same as any other HTC device, so there is hope.

    Do you mean unlocking as in rooting? If so how did you root the phone I just got mine today.

    No. Unlocking is the first step TO rooting. Without a good recovery (cwm/twrp/etc., et.al) the rooting part is problematic...from what I've read it can be done without a good recovery tool, but without a good recovery tool, restoring a borked up situation is kinda' difficult without being a droid-fu master.

    So the unlocking is just first step?? Then we are stuck with the apps loaded on this thing for now I am assuming.. Bummer with there only being 4 gigs of phone storage it would bve nice to free some up by removing some unwanted apps with my root explorer....

    Oh well just a waiting game then until the real developing begins..

    Re: RUU's recoveries and such?

    The answer is, yep. Unlocking its the first step. Recovery is next, and at this point there is no custom recovery available for this phone

    I tried the rooting method you have posted and linked to xda. Unlocked bootloader via htc dev as instructed. Next pushed and installed recovery, booted to recovery. my computer will not load or find the k2u device driver which i am assuming is what is giving me the no device found error when starting up my adb to finish the root process. All I want is root so i can rip crapware apps out and run my rom toolbox pro. If I can get that accomplished then I feel I can wait for some custom roms... Thanks for any and all help and input...

    Not going there personally. The guy on XDA has you going through hoops, installing a CWM that ISN'T FULLY FUNCTIONAL, and no RUU out there as of yet in case it all goes pear shaped. I NEED my phone to work. :-D

    Re: RUU's recoveries and such?

    OK.. All valid points you have made here. However "He" has accomplished root for the phone!! The recovery is all that's borked. I currently have the boot loader unlocked and the recovery flashed, I am typing and posting this with the phone right now. All I need is the root so I can removed bloat apps and run my from toolbox pro. Once rooted I can wait for a workable custom from and recovery until the thing drops on sprint and the devs go wild!! In the meantime I can back up my from or most of it with rom toolbox pro or titanium backup. Just wanted to clear some confusion as not to mislead anyone one way or the other... Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained!!!

    If you unlock the boot loader can you relock it so you can get warranty on your phone so your warranty isn't voided. Will they be able to tell the bootloader was unlocked then relocked?

    I think they are going to be able to tell yes. However it states on the HTC website that you can relock the bootloader by simply reversing the code process. However I havent tried it. As far as that all goes I am certain there will be plenty of material in the future with all the developing that is certainly going to be going on since Sprint and, possibly other carriers soon having it. Maybe xxdjvalexx will pm me back with a bit more direction and knowledge that i need to finish my root.

    Re: RUU's recoveries and such?

    Relocking works just fine. Oooh, and cricket stores are usually clueless, so returns/exchanges are normally straight forward if you sound like you have half a clue. :-D

    swes or Casey can you show me the site on htc's website where it says how to relock the boot loader can't find it on there site thanks. I want to root my phone to install my titanium backups of my apps from my old phone the mercury which was rooted. But i don't want to lose my year warranty and be able to pay 20 bucks to get a new phone instead of the 150 bucks for the extended warranty. With my mercury all i had to do was replace the cwm file and undo the root and no one would know it was rooted with htc bootloader unlocker cricket my not know it was unlocked but when it gets sent back to htc to get fixed they will see it was unlocked thus voiding the warranty on the one i had swapped out for 20 bucks.

    All you have to do is this from the command line on yer pc with phone connected:

    fastboot oem lock

    tada.

    (same process as the htcdev "unlock" without hoops.)
