Hey OP, or other users here, would anyone still happen to have the unroot zip with the .97 hboot nb0 file that they could mirror somehow (like MediaFire)? All of the mirrors have disabled the sharing of this file, and I need to finish these steps. Thanks in advance.
In case anybody is getting this error: "Failed to set prot mask (Inappropriate ioctl for device)".
The reason you are getting this is because you flashed GB instead of FROYO before you Rest the hboot. I did it by accident and couldn't find a way to fix it until I realized I flashed the wrong version of Android. Hope this helps somebody.
I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but the mediafire download for the ROM will randomly stop before the full file is downloaded. The best I've done so far is 200mb, with the actual file being 306mb. Very frustrating.
Is there anyway to get mediafire to allow me to download the whole file, or resume the download? I've tried a few different browsers on mac, no difference. Or can I find the file elsewhere?
Hey, I'm a little late. I need to send this phone back due to battery issues. But all of the files you have her seem to be down. Could someone please upload them to a different locations so that i can download them?
The only thing the link to the files leaves out is the RUU to Gingerbread : PG32IMG_RUU_Vivo_W_VERIZON_WWE_2.18.605.4_Radio_1. 09.01.0622_NV_VZW1.92_release_200325_signed.zip
But that is okay, because you can just accept an OTA after unrooting successfully.
Okay... I'm pretty confused here. Months back, the OTA messed up my phone and I lost root. I managed to get it working, and today finally got a chance to try to run back through everything so I can have root again and put a ROM back on. Well, ran through the whole process ,went fine, got 2.2.1 and 2.3.3 with hboot 0.97.
Then I ran Revolutionary to get S-Off, said Yes to the CWM... and the next time my phone rebooted, it had Hboot 6.13, no sign of CWM, and I still cannot get root access. I can't get into Recovery from the boot screen, and I can't flash an SU.
So, a couple questions: Has anyone else seen this? Is Hboot 0.97 vs. 6.13 relevant to being able to get root? If I run through the psneuter method, can I get Hboot 0.97 back, or is that a bad, bad idea? What the hell is going on here??
Since I rooted my DINC2 with -revolutionary-, I was happy to see this guide on how to restore everything to its original config including s-on. My Verizon contract is up and I could get a new phone with 4G, and maybe sell my DINC2 for a few bucks if I could set it back as new. BUT, the links to the downloads in this guide are broken. For instance, the PG23IMG here:
leads you to an ilivid site where you are prompted to download an .exe file !!! Having nothing to do with the file above. Same with unroot.zip file AND the Gingerbread file. AVG reported threats when I tried to get these files. In restoring my Vista partition from DVD image as I type this. Very disappointed !
Ok, I missed a couple of posts above where someone placed a unroot.rar file up. Got it - thanks ! and the Froyo image too. But, the link for the Gingerbreak image (to a Verizon site) tells you the file has been removed. Anyone have a location for the Gingerbread image ?
Success !! No HTC driver in the unroot package and none in Windows Vista. Had to download and install the driver from this web site: Download PdaNet+
These used DINC2s are going for about $100. on eBay. Might be able to sell this with proceeds toward a new 4G !!! Thanks for the trouble-free step by step. I was all evening chasing the files down when the operation took about 15 minutes to do once started. I'm hoping I'll get an OTA upgrade to 2.3.4 soon.
