HTC Incredible :: Boot Into HBoot ?

Aug 23, 2010

What does boot into hboot mean? Is it just powering off the phone then holding down the volume button and press power? If so then can someone explain to me when I download a called PB31IMG.zip and put it into my sdcard then boot my phone up it does not say anything about an update. For instance, I want to update my radio from 1.00.03.04.06 to 2.15.00.07.28.

General :: How To Boot To HBOOT 0.93.0001

Mar 25, 2012

Should I be able to find my adb device while my phone is only booting to HBOOT 0.93.0001?

Been stuck on this for days...and it's killing me!

PS. When I plug my phone in to

PC it says "Android ADB interface installed" "Ready to use"

But when I cmd the adb to find devices "adb devices" it shows blank

P.S. Phone: HTC Desire
Unrooted
S-ON
Unable to boot, can only get to HBOOT.(so cant turn debugging on)
Trying to get a goldcard to flash a new rom and see if i can unbrick

Reason for unable to boot is - It had been rebooting itself for weeks, slowly getting worse, until now, when I cant get it booted at all.

HTC Incredible :: How To Install .zip With Hboot

Nov 16, 2010

Is there anyone that can give me step by step instructions on how to use hboot to install files from the root directory on my sd card. Ex.

This is what I did: I downloaded Clockworkmod 2.5.0.5, renamed the Clockworkmod zip to PB31IMG.zip, and placed it on the root of my SD card. Power-off, and boot into HBOOT (pressing the down vol+power button).

Then I downloaded Superuser 2.3.6.1 and place it on the SD card, use Clockworkmod Recovery and choose "Install .zip from SD" option.

Restarted my phone, and there's Superuser."

I have tried going through hboot and never see these files once I have installed them on the SD card.

HTC Incredible : How To Upgrade HBOOT

Aug 16, 2010

When I reboot in recovery, it looks like my HBOOT version in .77. Someone in one of the threads mentioned that .77 and .79 were floating around as the safe options. How can I upgrade HBOOT versions, and with everything running fine, is there any benefit to upgrading? I'm running unrevoked forever, second wave rom, and newest radio leak if that matters.

HTC Incredible :: Downgrade HBOOT Without Clockworkmod?

Sep 3, 2010

I had 2.1 rooted with S-OFF
I wasn't able to update to 2.2 via OTA so I found an update.zip
I attempted to load the update.zip but it failed
Using [VIDEO] HowTo UnRoot Incredible by downgrading I downgraded to stock 2.1 but for some stupid reason I also disabled unrevoked forever and went to S-ON
I then applied the May OTA update Getting your phone ready for the FroYo update.zip!
Following that I applied the 2.2 update.zip

Here are the versions I'm on:
HBOOT-0.92.0000
RADIO-2.15.00.07.28

Now I'm trying to apply unrevoked3 and it fails
I found 2.1 stock to 2.2 rooted (with links to files)
I tried to downgrade to stock again and I now get this error:
Main Version is older!
Update Fail!
Do you want to reboot the device?

From what I understand I'm unable to downgrade to stock due to having an updated HBOOT
I've found instructions on how to downgrade HBOOT How to revert back to an earlier version of HBOOT but it seems I need clockworkmod to do that

So my question is. Is there a way I can proceed from here or am I stuck waiting for an official root for 2.2?

HTC Incredible :: Upgrading To HBOOT 0.92 And 2.15 Radio

Sep 23, 2010

I upgraded my radio was when 2.05 was released (1.0 -> 2.05), so I'm not sure if risks are the same given that we now have S-OFF.

Previously (when I upgraded) there were bricks that would occur if the same radio was flashed twice. I cannot remember whether the method of radio upgrading was done via HBOOT or Recovery. If the risk is still there, can I upgrade from 2.05 to 2.15, or should I downgrade to 1.0 then upgrade?

As far as HBOOT goes, I have never upgraded my HBOOT, I'm either running on 0.77 or 0.79, but I want to play around with some of the newer roms. Regardless, is HBOOT 0.92 an official release, or is it a user contributed release?

HTC Incredible : Revert Back To An Earlier Version Of HBOOT

Jul 16, 2010

This mostly applies to folks who have flashed the leaked ota and want to go back to legit stock. There is generally a problem with that, because we cannot use the RUU due to the upgraded Hboot (no radio has nothing to do with it).

Through my travels, I found a way to do it.

This is not without its risks, and I take no responsibility for any broken phones, knocked up cats, or homeless hamsters caused from the havoc it may wreak.

It did work for me, quite well. I was able to flash to an old RUU without issue like nothing ever happened.

First, the link I used, and then the english version.

[HOW-TO] Downgrade HBOOT - HTCPedia.com forums

Need the RUU?
http://www.mediafire.com/?ld1gm3bbddcbwdw

Now, my instructions, which will hopefully simplify it. I take no credit for this by the way, credit is due to the original thread.

1. Download and unzip the files I have attached to this thread and put them somewhere that you can push them with adb.
2. You must used Unrevoked's latest tool to install clockwork.
3. Boot into clockwork recovery, go to partitions, and mount data.
4. Type this code...

HTC Incredible :: Stuck At HTC Incredible Boot Screen

Aug 20, 2010

I rooted a few days ago and did the forever S-off. I have ROM Manager loaded and was poking around in the system. I downloaded Skyraider and ROM Manager asked me to reboot. Not thinking it wouldn't let me know what it was doing when in recovery before doing something the rom had been applied. Now the Phone has for 40+ minutes been at the "HTC Incredible" boot screen.

I have read not to pull the battery but The power Button and Volume button do nothing so I could really use some suggestions. As a little more info I have not flashed the radio yet so it was a 1.x radio that a 2.2 rom was just seemingly applied to.

Bricked or recoverable? I have a Nandroid backup if someone can help me get back to that point...

General :: Should Update HTC One X HBOOT From 1.12 To 1.39

Jan 4, 2013

I'm trying to run TripNDroid ROM (check here), but currently that ROM on 4.2.1 doesn't support my HBOOT, 1.12.

I checked me CID, which is HTC_304, and I see it is compatible with HBOOT 1.39.

Now, I read somewhere that if I update to a more recent HBOOT I might not be able to flash some ROMs only compatible with older HBOOTs. So, should I update my HBOOT or not? If so, how?

General :: Set Up Hboot Password?

Dec 4, 2011

is it possible to set up a Hboot password, or if currently not, is it achievable? We all know the PC's BIOS can be password protected, and Hboot is rather like Android BIOS.

The reason Im asking is that since almost all new phones have sensor keys for menu, back, etc (instead of physical buttons), that cannot be used during boot, a thief who wants to install a new ROM on a stolen device can go only through Hboot with power/volume down, instead of jumping straight to recovery (power/menu) or fastboot like on my old MT3G, for example. Therefore, a Hboot password option would make stolen phones extremely difficult to crack, and would require way more than just average user knowledge how to flash a ROM.

At this time I noticed a list from one to four., one thing that was listed was bootloader and another was hboot My question would there be a way to get into the 2.1 leak file and some how switch the hboot and bootloader in it with the hboot and bootloader that is on the official ota file or some other jnoot or bootloader. Then convert it back to a zip file and reinstalling it like out was a v4 leak. Sorry if this was a stupid post but just trying to help leak users or devs brainstorm a little.

HTC Desire :: Hboot Not Downgrading No Matter How Often I Try

I did a factory reset, created the gold card and went throguh the process several times.If I let it go and carry on it goes through a few more things before it finally finishes. Then it reboots my htc desire and a white screen with skateboarding androids shows up, from there in the instructions it tells me to push up for flashing if i do that it goes to the nerxt option which is sim lock and I dont think that is what it is meant to be.If I boot into reocvery the phone freezes at a screen pic of the phone with a gtriangle and exclamation mark and so I take the battery out and reboot that way. Please can someone explain where am I going wrong here?

HTC Eris :: Rooting With HBOOT Version

Jul 11, 2010

I'm currently on my third Eris. My first had the silent bug extremely bad and I upgraded to 2.1v3 instead of OTA, so I got a new one. The 2nd one was perfect at first; it came with 1.5 stock, but soon I found that it had a broken trackball and clearly HTC didn't fix that before shipping it to me. So after further complaining I got a 3rd Eris, which works fine although it shipped with 2.1, which I suspect is really 2.1v3 not OTA, but no definite way to check. I've recently decided I wanted to root my phone, but discovered that my HBOOT version is 1.49 which from what I read can't be rooted? My question is is it possible to a root a phone on this HBOOT version and also does this mean that I'm probably running 2.1v3?

HTC Eris :: 1.49.2 Hboot In Update.zip Format

Aug 2, 2010

While tested, and working on ECLIPS3's test device, this is a risky flash. Flashing this is at your own risk. If data or property loss occurs, its you fault, not mine.

The s-off spl allows you to use fastboot, and can make recovery of a "softbricked" device much easier.

Flash this like any other flashable file through recovery.

General :: HTC Inspire Frozen On HBoot?

Apr 25, 2012

I've had an HTC Inspire for about 8 months now, with very little problems except the occasional frustrating frozen screen or two. A few months ago, I noticed that my "volume down" button wasn't working, so I would just manually change the volume through my settings. It wasn't a big deal, just irritating.

Last night, my phone was working just fine. I even remember waking up in the middle of the night and answering my texts.

This morning, I noticed it was turned off, so I attempted to turn it on, and it wouldn't work. Thinking it was dead, I plugged it in, got the "charging" screen, and attempted to turn it on again.

I got sent to the hboot screen. Unfortunately, it is not responding to the buttons being pressed. I've never rooted my phone, so I'm pretty sure this is all due to my volume down being stuck (and therefore hard resetting when I press "power.")

Is this fixable to the extreme novice (which I'm assuming it isn't)? Or, if as an AT&T customer, will they give me a replacement, or is this beyond their realm? I know when I lost my battery cover once, they wouldn't give me a new one and said I had to go to HTC.

HTC Incredible :: Rooted Won't Boot

Nov 19, 2010

I rooted my HTC Droid Incredible with and it ran fine afterwards. Then I changed a couple of the files in /system/framework and that apparently was a bad idea, 'cause now my phone won't boot. It just stops at a white screen that says "HTC Incredible". I'd made backups of my system and programs through ClockworkMod and TitaniumBackup, but unlike when I screw something up with my Droid X, I never get a clockworkmod recovery screen with the Incredible. I can get to HBOOT, but running recovery or factory reset gets me nothing but a black screen with white bars. After backing up my sd card via an adapter, I formatted the card and copied to it some stock image file I found on some forum and rebooted, but that didn't do anything. Not sure what information I need to provide. The Rom was stock. According to the HBOOT screen I've got HBOOT-0.92.0000, s-off, and RADIO-2.15.00.07.28. I still have the clockwork mod backup on my PC from when I backed up my SD Card.
