Re: [TUTORIAL][K2_CL][ICS]How To FactoryUpdate After Moonshine S-Off
NOTE: ONLY YOU YOU YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES TO YOUR YOUR YOUR DEVICE.
FOLLOW THESE STEPS EXACTLY.
DO NOT CONTINUE TO THE ACTUAL PROCEDURE UNTIL YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS TUTORIAL.
This post will be used to give you a dry run on how to achieve updating your OS (Operating System) to JB (JellyBean) using the OFFICIAL OTA (Over The Air) released by HTC for K2_CL Boost Mobile devices that have been S-off(ed) using [MENTION=627538]Moonshine[/MENTION].io while they were/are running ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) OS.
Downloads will be in post #2.
Credits will be in post #3.
Okay, let's get this dry run started so everyone will have an understanding of how this is going to work.
STEP 1: Connect your phone to your computer with a known working USB cable. Remove the back (battery cover). For convenience, just leave your phone plugged into your computer and the battery cover off during this procedure. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ADB (AndroidDebuggingBridge) ENABLED.
STEP 2: Download TWRP (TeamWinRecoveryProject) .img and place it in your /fastboot directory(folder) on your computer.
STEP 3: Find and place your unlocktoken that you received from HTC into your /fastboot directory.
STEP 4: Download my personal,super clean, nandroid backup and unzip it. Then place the 'PURE_STOCK_ICS' folder in the same directory that your personal TWRP nandroid backups are.
If you have never used TWRP and this is your first time, do this, simply boot into fastboot and open a cmd(command) prompt while in your fastboot directory and type
this will boot the twrp.img on your phone, then click backup and swipe to confirm. When done making a backup, reboot.
fastboot boot twrp.img
Now you will have a directory(folder) on your sdcard named TWRP and inside that directory you will have a folder named BACKUPS. Place the 'PURE_STOCK_ICS' folder, with all of its contents, here.
STEP 5: Download PL80IMG.zip NOTE: You will not be able to extract this zip. It is encrypted by HTC. So don't freak out and assume that you got a bad download or a corrupt zip. Place PL80IMG.zip on the root of your sdcard. MAKE SURE IT'S PLACED ON THE ROOT OF YOUR 'ext_sd'. Turn your phone off by pulling the battery out.(to my knowledge, it is perfectly safe to leave your phone plugged into your computer even while pulling the battery out. I left my phone plugged in the whole time I did this and I'm using my phone to post this tutorial. No damage at all ) Then boot into bootloader by holding the -vol (volume down) button and then the pwr (power) button. After it's in bootloader it will run a self check looking for different files on the root of your sdcard. And then it will find PL80IMG.zip. After it finds the zip it will load it. You will see a blue bar in the upper right of your screen. When it's done loading it will say 'parsing' and then do a whole lot of 'checks' and after its finished verifying the package it will ask you if you want to apply it. CHOOSE YES. after it applies the package it will tell you 'done' 'press pwr(power) to reboot'
Press the pwr button. NOTE: YOUR PHONE MAY NOT BOOT. This is because the PL80IMG.zip flashed a stock sense JB kernel. DON'T WORRY I did this while on ICS OS and my phone did not boot. Just pull the battery to power off your phone. NOTE: TAKE OUT YOUR SDCARD WHILE YOUR PHONE IS OFF. DO NOT REINSTALL YOUR SDCARD UNTIL INSTRUCTED. Now install your battery and boot into bootloader and choose fastboot from the menu. Verify that you have a good connection to your computer by sending cmd from the cmd prompt you opened in your fastboot directory. If it returns your serial number continue. If it returns a blank or 'no devices found' make sure your screen says 'fastboot usb' in red text.
STEP 6: Unlock your new JB (still S-off) bootloader. Send cmd
It will ask you if your sure you want to unlock it, use the volume rocker to select yes press the pwr button to confirm. It will then try to boot again. Just pull the battery to power off and then boot into bootloader again and you'll notice its says *tampered* unlocked. Select fastboot from the menu and send cmd
fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
Now select bootloader from the menu, AFTER THE BOOTLOADER IS FINISHED LOOKING FOR THE PL80IMG.zip, THEN YOU MAY INSERT YOUR SDCARD BACK INTO ITS SLOT IN THE PHONE. DO THIS NOW. Now select recovery from the menu and it will boot you into your twrp recovery.
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Select restore from the menu, and find the folder name 'PURE_STOCK_ICS' and swipe to confirm. (No need to wipe before,even if coming from a custom Rom) once the restore process is finished it will ask you reboot. DON'T REBOOT YET. Click on the 'home' button, then click the reboot button, then click the bootloader button. It will boot you strait into fastboot so DO NOT PRESS THE POWER BUTTON because it will check your sdcard for the PL80IMG.zip if you accidentally choose bootloader from the fastboot menu. SO AGAIN, DO NOT PRESS THE POWER BUTTON. In your cmd prompt send cmd Now your phone should boot into a nice fresh ICS Rom. Go into settings, scroll down to the bottom and click updates, then software updates and download and install the JB OTA update.
STEP 7: Profit.
