    Yes on the first question (if you had read the instructions), and don't know on the second part.

    Generally you can still take OTA's if you are simply unlocked and rooted, although it will unroot your phone.

    Did I install it incorrectly?
    The full SDK isn't installed at this point. All you have is the first part. You still need to run the SDK manager and actually install the rest. If you want the quick and dirty version try this: http://mypcdominion.com/Files/androi...id-minisdk.zip. In this zip you'll find adb, fastboot and the necessary dll's. Nothing more, nothing less but exactly what you need to unlock and install a custom recovery.

    Nope. Just drop the ICS leak on your external SD card. Make sure it's named PH98IMG.zip and reboot into HBOOT(power down, then power up holding power + volume down). It will automatically take it from there.

    I saw in your FAQ that when you change the name it HAS TO BE DONE with a file manager does that mean i can't just do it after i drop it in the SD card or do i have to do it with a file manager app on my phone then HBOOT?

    Thanks for this thread!

    I went from a bone stock Rezound yesterday, to unlocked, rooted, S-OFF, running ICS firmware with Nils' Business ICS ROM and working (with WPA2) WiFi Tether today.

    For those that follow, if you want to get to the same place that I am, here are the high level steps I had to go through.

    - followed the instructions given here to unlock (using HTCDev tool).

    - followed instructions here to root (which involves installing Amon Ra Recovery)

    At this point, I tried to setup WiFi Tether and found that it will only work with the stock ROM with no encryption.

    - used the wire trick to get S-OFF. Worked first time, no problem. This returned my phone boot loader to LOCKED.

    - Installed the latest ICS RUU (3.14.605.5). This blew away Amon Ra Recovery

    - Unlocked phone again.

    - Installed Amon Ra Recovery again, but did not go through the steps for rooting again.

    - Installed Nils' Business ICS Sense ROM (v4.1 for S-OFF).

    - Installed WiFi Tether for Rezound (from a thread on XDA). Somewhere in there root status was preserved or else Nils' ROM was pre-rooted (probably the latter).

    In retrospect, I probably could have skipped the first time around of unlocking and rooting, but oh, well. If I had known then that WiFi Tether wouldn't work with the stock ROM, I probably would have tried that route. Fortunately, those 2 steps are quick and easy (i.e. takes a minute or 2).

    I am unlocked and rooted, running stock Rom and using the WiFi tether app and it works perfectly....only reason I rooted!

    Oh, I re read that post and see you were talking about encryption which I haven't tried. I just choose who I want to allow to connect. I will have to try encryption to see if it works on mine or not...

    I'm at the rooting part of Mr.Smith's guide and at this part "Fastboot flash recovery ..\recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img
    Fastboot reboot-bootloader" it tells me that the recovery img file cannot be loaded. What do I do?

    fastboot flash boot sense4_boot.img. The thing is that if you use this command you need to have fastboot and sense4_boot.img in the same directory.

    Help! I just followed the guide exactly. I got my phone unlocked and installed Amon recovery. Went to developers tools and installed su and superuser, rebooted. Went to the Market and installed SuperSU since I am on the current ICS leak. When I do a root check, it tells me I am not rooted. I also cannot get the updates installed on SuperSU. I am not rooted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You got it. The reason for this is that CWM(ClockWorkMod Recovery) doesn't work as well on the Rezound as it does on other phones. If you want the most seamless experience AmonRa is the way to go.

    Wow!! that seems a bit inconvenient no?? with rom manager i could create a back up of my current rom and flash a new one on the fly!! will this be possible with AmonRa in the near future?

    Probably not. CWM and Rom Manager are dev'd by the same team. AmonRa is a completely different product.

    Thanks Mr. Smith, but I tried that option already. I just don't understand, I followed everything to a tee. I'm not new to rooting, and modifying by all means, but I am completely stumped on this one. I got frustrated so I relocked and set my phone back up. Maybe if the official ICS release is different than the leak I installed, I will give rooting another shot since more than likely, those of us on a leaked version will have to install the official RUU and wipe all data again anyway.

    To unroot and return to stock, the command is "fastboot oem lock" correct? Then just run the RUU twice?

    Edit: Yes that is the correct command, however it gave me an error. Still seems to have worked, im relocked now.

    Sorry, I just saw this. It's not quite correct. If you s-off, you never need a computer. If you s-on, you should only need it for roms that say for s-off only. Most roms will put the ph98img on your sd card to flash after you flash your rom, but the s-off only ones and some really old ones won't, so you need a computer to use adb to flash the boot.img.

    I'm stuck and in need of help. First off i need to know if I should upgrade to ICS before rooting. I have already unlocked. Secondly, I have already tried to root and when I go to the command prompt and enter in "Cd \AndroidSDK\platform-tools" it tells me that it cannot find the specified path. i created the AndroidSDK folder just like you said to do. I am not sure what to do now. Please help

    Yes. I was never able to get past that point. It always tells me that the path isn't specified. Both of the phones i am trying to root are unlocked and running the OTA ICS update.
