    I made this script because people with hboot 1.5 usually have problems getting recovery to flash.

    This is tested on hboot 1.4 with revolutionary S-OFF method and on hboot 1.5 with HTC Unlock method.

    Disclaimer!
    • You do this at your own risk! You brick it you own it!
    • It has been tested so I cant imagine anything going wrong.
    • *IF* something goes wrong just post and I will help



    Prerequisites
    • Must have hboot 1.3 / 1.4 with S-OFF using revolutionary method
    • or
    • hboot 1.5 unlocked with HTC Unlock method



    Instructions
    1. Download attachment
    2. Unzip
    3. Run Do it!
    4. Profit!



    What you will see:

    I was struggling with this. Didn't even know if I had customer recovery or not. This did the trick. Easy to use, which is great, since I'm not really a techie. A plus.



    Edit: will thank later(on mobile now)

    Well, it looked liked it was going to work but then I booted into the Bootloader and selected Recovery and got the HTC backspash followed by the phone powering off. I have not been able to get TWRP installed via any method to date and had high hopes for this installer. Any ideas? I really don't like CWR.

    Ok, I booted back into the OS and from the restart option menu selected Recovery and it's in TWRP now!! Sweet! Wonder why it wasn't working from the bootloader?

    im trying to guess what this is. sooo go to htcdev site do that... then this is the next step to putting a new OS on my phone for root? or does this allow me to have superuser on stock? thanks!

    simply put: step 1... htcdev
    step 2: this
    step 3: ? what now?

    Yes, this will update as well as install.

    Step 3... Make a Nandroid back up then.... Flash a custom ROM or find the Superuser flashable zip to give you root on stock ROM. Personally I think if you made it this far you might as well flash a custom ROM!

    No, this gives you a custom recovery so that you can load CM7. S-OFF or unlock will need to be used before you can use this app.

    1) You'll need S-OFF using Revolutionary (Hboot V 1.4) or use the HTC Dev unlock system (Hboot V 1.5).

    2) Once this is done, you'll need a new recovery that will allow you to flash CM7. Use the app in this thread to install TWRP, it's a custom recovery.

    3) Once TWRP is installed, use it to make a nandroid backup, and once backup is complete use TWRP to flash CM7.


    OP, thanks for this. I will take advantage of it as soon as CM7 hits nightly/beta.

    thanks a lot for the response, i was waiting for Revolution method to come for HBOOT 1.5 but with this I will finally jump on the band wagon

    So just to reiterate so I dont need the S off now to fully root my phone ?

    I heard from guy who heard from his cousin who heard from his barber who heard from his mechanics sons wife who heard from his pastor who heard form the.... there may not be an s-off for 1.5. To be honest with you its quite redundant. There is no value in it. HTC Method will do everything S-OFF does

    Super flash will certainly wipe the phone. I think the HTC Unlock does to but I am not sure. Be prepared to re install.

    Hey, will this allow me to flash a new ROM from recovery? I have 1.5 and used HTC root... to flash a ROM I have to do it the long way. Will this fix that? Or Do I still have to install new ROM's the hard way? (because honestly... I can't remember how I did it the first time! lol)

    This will not change how you flash a ROM. Its just a quick script I made to update recovery partition. I am working on a script like this that will take the drudgery out of flashing ROMS on hboot 1.5. Its going to be pretty much the same code... Just need to add a line to it, lol Have not had a chance yet.

    If you were actually able to do this, you would finally make the HTC hboot1.5 process every bit as usable as any other method. There would then be no difference at all, am I right?

    You're not an *****, man. Just new like me. Yeah, phone hooked up to comp via USB, USB debugging on, fastboot unchecked. D/L file, unzip, open, hit "Do it!" At least I think that's what I remember.

    Lots of help here and at scottsroms.com. These guys are great.
