    This just means that your setup is different. If you have your androidsdk files(adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and 2 dll files) in c:\androidsdk, then that's where you should change directory to.

    So instead of

    Code:
    cd \androidsdk\platform-tools
    You should do

    Code:
    cd \androidsdk
    There will be a few other adjustments. But hit me back when you get past this. I'll stick with you through the process.

    For the <Waiting for Device> error, the only thing I needed to do was select Fastboot from the first menu and my PC picked up my phone.

    Ok so I got through the first step lol I just needed to remove the "platformtools" part. Now it says error: cannot load '..\recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img'

    I also have another question....my wife unlocked hers and I do believe she used the same folder. So when she put her unlock_code.bin inside....it copied over mine. Do I need to restart the whole process?

    Ok, if it can't find recovery...img then you need to change the command line. so if it's in c:\temp then you need to type fastbot flash recovery c:\temp\recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img

    For the unlock_code, if you're unlocked you won't need to do anything over unless you want to unlock again. But you should have it in your email still right?

    In my AndroidSDK folder I have this file: recovery-ra-vigor-3.15-gnm.img


    I probably do still have the email with my unlock code.

    In my AndroidSDK folder I have the files, adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, fastbook.exe, the recovery image file listed above, and the unlock code.bin. Is this how it is supposed to be?

    Hi Mr. Smith, I am having the same problem that Joedirt is having - I followed the instructions up to installing su & superuser from Amon Ra (v3.15. I also did a nandroid back-up). I then downloaded superuser from the appstore. However, the binary updates says "gaining root access...failed" and the wireless tethering app (Muller) can not tether saying I haven't rooted.

    Any other thoughts?

    For your flashable version of superSU, what do I do with the zip file?

    Thanks.

    You'd need to flash it in AmonRa recovery(like a ROM)

    Thanks - I think that worked. My SuperUser app is now the blue glowing "#" sign (it used to be the Android pirate from Market) and my wireless tethering isn't asking whether I'm 'rooted' anymore.

    Now that I've installed the flashable SU, will it interfere or be overridden when I flash another ROM later?

    Another question - my wireless tethering app is throwing errors in the log and the phone isn't appearing in a list of 'Wireless Networks'. What gives? If this isn't the right thread for this question I can start another one.

    Thanks again.



    Thanks again.

    Yes if you install a ROM, it will overwrite superuser.

    For tethering try grabbing the latest and greatest version of wifi-tether if you don't already have it.

    Mr. Smith -

    Just wanted to thank you for putting this together.

    I'd been plagued by 120 degree temps(when playing Cut the Rope or other games) and awful battery life. I was going to wait until the next OTA, but I just didn't want to risk the temps anymore, so I bit the bullet and decided to go with your guide.

    I usually have something go wrong with anything I do, but not this time. Everything went off without a hitch. I was just going to unlock and root and run stock, but then I thought, "why go this far and not try a ROM?" so I loaded the Venom Rom...again without a hitch.

    In short, fantastic guide, thanks for your contribution to the community.

    Thank you!

    Try going to XDA and get Hasoons toolkit. Does everything for you. Follow directions and watch the video and you can't go wrong. Heres the link.

    What's happening/not happening. Whenever possible, paste your command line output. It helps us see what's what.

    Thanks so much for the guide Mr. Smith, I'd be completely lost without it. I have a very noobish question for you though - when I initially download the Android SDK Manager, which APIs do I need to install? I went ahead and installed the 4.0.3 and 4.0 stuff. Here's a screen shot - am I on the right track or are there files still missing that I need? Thanks!

    Thanks MrSmith317 for the great guide! I have 1 quick question for you. This is my first time using AmonRa recovery, and went to do a NAND backup, but there are options on what you can back up. My question is, what all do I need to back up, and what can I get away with not backing up? Thanks.

    Personally I would suggest leaving the default options. The only thing you can really do without is the kernel.. That's because a non-s-off'ed phone will not be able to flash the kernel from the backup.

    Ok, so I'm ready to attempt s-off, which version of JPBEAR do I need to run if I'm HTC unlocked, rooted, and on the stock OTA ICS update?

    A question about rooting. After I have unlocked the phone., if I am going to flash a ROM that is rooted such as Nils business sense, do I need to root the phone first, or can I just flash the ROM in AmonRa recovery and this will give me root.

    Thanks

    Can someone clarify if the instructions at the beginning of this thread are still valid? They provide a link to HTC drivers, but the link is no longer active. I've been trying to root my Rezound all day (trying a number of different approaches found on the web) and keep hitting roadblocks. If these instructions are outdated, can someone here please direct to me something current. Thanks!

    They are. You can use this link for drivers: http://mypcdominion.com/Files/androi...r3.0.0.007.exe

    The original link was to HTC's site and honestly I don't maintain this thread much since everything is still the same as when I wrote the OP. If you have questions feel free to PM me or look me up on gtalk.
