    I'm on Windows Vista, and I'm stuck at the bootloader unlock part. When I do fastboot oem get_identifier_token it just says <waiting for device> and nothing happens.

    UPDATE: Installing HTC Sync. I think my problem was not having USB drivers.
    I had the same issue. HTC Sync did the trick. Some say to install it and then uninstall it and leave just the drivers. That didn't work for me. I had to install HTC Sync and just exit out of it when I connected my phone. Was able to unlock and root after that. Just posting this info for others.

    Additionally with the recovery, the file is now located here: Directory listing of http://androidfiles.org/uploads/PrimoC/Recoveries

    I also found at first CWM won't let you select anything, but if you scroll through the menu once or twice, it then allows selection of menu items. I've read that this is normal for CWM.

    I believe I've followed the directions completely but after the final reboot i keep getting stuck at "Android is upgrading... Starting apps." I've tried repeating steps 4.5 to 4.13 to the get the same result. I guessed that gapps was the issue so I tried a few different gapps and again got the same result.

    The cm 10 build I used was cm-10-20121028-UNOFFICIAL-primoc. Gapps tried: gapps-jb-20121212-signed, gapps-jb-20120726-signed, gapps-jb-20121011-signed. The boot img I used was pulled from the Jmz_Stock_Deodex files found here: Directory listing of http://androidfiles.org/uploads/PrimoC/Stock_Roms

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Anyone have a link to the most recent stable cm10 build they've been able to use, as well as the gapps and boot img they used? I'd also settle for the files needed to return my unit back to stock. Any help with the issue would be greatly appreciated.

    I recommend not doing cm10 anymore. Lots of development is going on, and the focus is not so much to get everything working alright, but to get everything to build correctly (This means the developers do not want to port anything. They want to get official status for cm10.) The best 4.1 rom that I've used, and I currently use is called PACman. It is a combination of Paranoid Android, AOKP and CM10. It's a port from the htc desire hd, and it has everything working properly except for hotspot (usb tether does work though!). I don't know if there's a working fix for hotspot but I'm gonna check. I'm about to update the OP to reference PACman instead.

    I believe that if your phone came with the updated radio that you will have to use ruu for your phone to downgrade to the 1.00521 radio. Also, depends if you are cdma or gsm phone. You must use the correct ruu for either the cdma or gsm version. This post over at xda will help you once you get your ruu,

    I'm kinda screwed. i got to step 11 in part 4 and then my phone just gets stuck at the screen that says HTC Quietly Brilliant this build is for development purposes only.... i turned it off and put it into hboot again. however, i can't get it to go into recovery or factory reset it. when i start hboot it goes through this SD CHECKING and it says no image. so i've got no idea what to do now. my phone is pretty much useless at the moment.

    Hey guys I've got a bit of a problem, I've followed the instructions as best I could and it installed OK. However when I boot up it keeps restarting after a few seconds. What did I do wrong?

    You need to fastboot flash a custom recovery then. If you don't have one on your sdcard, you need to put one on your sdcard.

    It sounds like you have the updated radio. This update has created problems for people and the only way to fix it is to install a previous RUU, as the guy above said. This will take some work. Do a LOT of reading before you do anything. Xda has a lot of information on how to fix it by flashing an ruu. I don't know how to do it, as I've never had to do it. :/

    I flashed a custom recovery and chose PACman mod to install from sd card. when i install it, it says "assert failed: get prop("roproduct.device") = = " primoc" I I get prop ("ro.build.product") = = primoc"
    E: error in /sdcard/Pacman.zip
    (status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    what can i do next? i also tried paranoid android, and that gets stuck at the boot screen, it goes past the HTC Quietly Brilliant ... but not the paranoid android screen. any option to what i can try next?

    Well if it is on virgin mobile them out is primoc. If you have a sims card(I'm not talking about the micro sdcard), them you are primou. BE SURE! You don't want to flash the wrong images.

    No, I believe this rom is for cdma, you will find roms and much more information about your gsm phone on xda 's site. I'm not trying to run you off from here, just there's alot of development going on at xda. Another good place for information is here http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?p=4593340
    Good luck.

    Just a shout in the dark, but over at android forums they realized that there is two different radios for the cdma version. The newest update that it's suppose to fix the battery calibration also had a radio update in it that it's causing boot loops when ever you try a custom Rom. If you just got your phone ity may have the newer radio on it. Someone said they flashed the ruu (which had the old radio) and then went through the whole unlock, root, and custom recovery routine and solved problem. The old radio has 521...
    The new radio has 987.. or something like that.

    Yup, same problem I had. I did the RUU, but I still can't install a new ROM. At least I'm not stuck in the boot loop though. At least we know these phones are hard to fully brick....

    Okay... battled through everything... successfully got the rom installed, as well as gapps. (Had issues finding a cwm recovery version that would work with the htc one - power button wouldn't work right, but that was it.)

    So everything should be good...

    ...well, almost. It hangs at the pacman loading screen. So close!

    I'm at a loss at this point. Does anyone have any ideas??
    Thanks much.

    EDIT: I realized my mistake! I did all the cache wiping, but did not format /system. Did that, re-installed, all is good.
    I mean, sure, it turns out I had the wrong radio version... and so I had to do that fix... but yeah, it's good now.

    EDIT 2: I will add one more bit of wisdom: Do not go through with all of this until AFTER you have activated your phone! I thought I could get everything rom-wise all nice and set before activating, but during the pacman installation, the handset got some crazy idea of which phone number it was, and it wouldn't activate or allow me to edit the MEID. Just so you know!

    Unfortunately, yes you must unlock boot loader to root.

    Locked bootloaders can be rooted but since this one is so easy to unlock I don't think anyone is looking for a way to do it with this device.

    Unlocking the bootloader allows the installation of custom recoveries.

    Use directions from http://www.androidauthority.com/one-...0-cm10-108905/ but just use the files on this page for pacman.
