HTC EVO 4G : Completely Restore Phone Back To Stock?
Jun 17, 2010
For some reason my phone does not vibrate for incoming text messages anymore and I have all the settings on. I cannot figure it out. Spent a lot of time. I want to restore it and then if that does not do it I am going to return it for a new one.
Today I tried to restore my phone back to stock ROM and as I was trying to get into recovery mode and complete a nand restore but it wouldn't let me get in. It would just reboot me back into bootloader. I tried updating my superboot and recovery image to 1.7 and it's just stuck at the loading screen now. Is there anyway to restore it?
Anyone else had abny issues with the back up restore function? I tried to do a software update, to which something seems to have happened. All i can see for the time being is an update to the virtual keyboard. Anyway, lost apps, contacts etc, so went into the menu on the handset and selected back up, restore. Restored numbers etc to phone book and over 150 number details are missing. The back up utility doesn't seem to have backed up all my numbers. Also, any personal photo's of callers etc have either vanished or the photo's are now against the wrong people. So much for this back up service, it's going to take hours, if not days to try to get the phone back tot he way it was!
How to restore the stock bootloader on a HTC phone?
I explain: after the root process, made with the Revolutionary tool, the bootloader isn't the same as before: now there are some lines i don't like (especially the one that allows to format the phone only by pressing two or three buttons). Is there a way to change the bootloader, and back it up, or if i lose the phone, the "volume down-power button trick" could make a new phone?
I tried everything, including a method of mine to set the s-on and using the ruu, but nothing changed.
I was trying to root my samsng behold 2 earlier today using the command codes on theunlockr.com. I thought everything was going well as I went all the way to the last step where it rebooted my behold 2. Problem is, the phone kinda just turned off after doing the reboot command and didn't turn back on by itself (I gave it like 10 minutes). I eventually then just turned on the phone manually and noticed that everything was super laggy. Even when I used taskkiller to kill every task minus GDE, it said I only had 38MB ram available. I rebooted my phone a few times and it was laggy everytime so I decided to do a hard reset. The problem is that when I attempted the hard-reset, it will now get stuck on the samsung screen when trying to load up (stayed there for over 30 minutes). I can still enter the phone if I just start it up regularly without trying to hard-reset, but it will continue to be VERY laggy.
Is there anything I can do to restore this phone back to its original state? I was reading about using ODIN to flash it or something, but for some reason my computer doesn't detect my phone when I go into Download mode on startup (it does however detect the usb drivers on my phone once the phone officially startsup into its homepage).
I have tried to backup my phone multiple ways and I have not had any luck. I manually rooted my phone, using the steps on this webpage: [GUIDE] How To Root The Sprint CDMA Hero (Windows) - xda-developers
Manual Root Backup When I tried the step 19 reboot recovery my phone just reboots to an HTC splash screen.
I also tried to use the clockwork mod market app to make a backup as see on this page [Complete Guide] How To Fully Back Up And Restore Your Android Phone Using Nandroid Backup | Android News, Reviews, Applications, Games, Phones, Devices, Tips, Hacks, Videos, Podcasts - Android Police
I click flash clockwork mod recovery it auto senses my phone cdma htc hero. I click on the hero, and nothing happens, I never receive a successfully flashed.
PREKITCHEN Last I tried to perform a backup using prekitchen the diagnostic showed I am green in all areas I click on the nandroid backup and it reboots my phone and brings up a HTC splash screen.
basically I have to pull out the battery to get phone functionality back. I have read else where that I can hold volume down and power to bring up a recovery mod (this works) but I am not sure what to do when I get there.
I have just performed a update as requested when I connected my phone to pc, and when I restarted phone it has iped everything. contacts, text messages, all links to my twitter and facebook. can someone tell me how sony ericsson will restore phone back to its pre update settings as I have some very important numbers I have now lost which I need access to desperately
So my Droid's screen recently stopped working and I'm getting an exchange with Verizon. I have to send my dead phone back once I get the new one, and am concerned about the fact that it's rooted running Froyo. I'd like to restore the nandroid backup I made of stock 2.1. Can somebody give me advice on how to do this with a dead screen? Perhaps from the command line on my computer via USB, or perhaps the key strokes to do it in nandroid so I can replicate it by feel?
I am using Myn's Warm TwoPointTwo and I want the original launcher (Rounded with phone in the middle) for the phone. Is there a way to do that? is there and apk for that? or is there a way to get all the stock widgets to work with Launcher Pro.
Would anyone happen to have a completely stock ROM that they would upload. I'm surprised it hasn't came up yet. When I first used metamorph I didn't realize I really had no way of going back to stock because I hadn't backed up my rom backed up before hand. I did back it up before I switched to velocity but it still has R1L on it.
I tried flashing stock back on my phone on two different cpu's and two different roms. I was running joey's rom and now I'm running ultimate dream's rom I think it's called. Whenever I try to flash it with the updater it just hangs and in the progress bar it just says ready. Any suggestions?
I have a question...i want to root my phone and install the new villain 5.3 rom so that i can have droid 2.1 but my question is, what happens if it craps out on me and i need to revert it back to the way i got the phone from sprint.where can i find instructions on how to do that and where can i find that software? sorry if this is a repeat question but i searched a bit and didnt find it.
My phone died today, and once i put it on the charger and booted it back up it was frozen completely. I restarted the phone and still the same thing. The screen never shuts off and then drop down menu is trying to come down. I get no feedback from any touch of the screen and occasionally i will get a bunch of random vibrates back. No i do not have an ATK.
I am rooted and running Fresh. I need to exchange my phone because the mini usb slot on the phone is cracking off. If I do the official 2.1 update will it take me back to stock? I'm sure this is a repeat but I looked for an hour for the answer with no such luck.
I've changed my Moto Droid to the Droid Incredible, I will miss and keep Moto Droid in my heart. (It also made me realize iPhone was just a platonic relationship). I'm selling it off to offset cost. It's already deactivated, I've been trying to use the Rom Manager to download a stock image but it keeps failing, apparently it doesn't want to use Wifi (tried in airplane mode too). Even then the version it downloads is rooted. I'd like to reset/wipe the phone down to 2.1 or 2.0.1 and a way to make sure OTA will work when it gets activated. How can I do this?
