Did something stupid again
« on: November 11, 2012, 10:31:04 PM »
Alright, So i'm about to start playing around with S-off, i'm ready to do the wire trick, but i realized that I never backed up my Stock Rom. I'm also having trouble flashing anything other than harmonia, and as far as i can tell, harmonia doesn't work to obtain s-off.


I tried flashing the odex and deodex roms that are in the rom section, and they go through the flashing process fine, but hang on the red VM screen.


What should I do?

I tried running through the S-off and i came up with a 'still sober' error. I also corrupted the sd card. Luckily, this time i backed it up. Right now i'm trying to get harmonia back on there.

Wait for LeslieAnn to confirm this.  I believe that if you really mess up...  then you need to dig up an RUU and run it from your computer.  If you mess up  after that...  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1627917

Anyways that's just what I think but I'm a noob and I'd wait to hear from our favorite dev.

I really came to tell you about my experience with that wire trick.  For me it failed countless times.  I didn't think it was ever going to work but I just kept trying out of desperation (I had nothing further to lose) and eventually it worked.  Also I wasn't worried about my SD card because I had a spare from my old OV.

While trying to find out about the new OTA update...  I think I found something that might be helpful to you.  http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1889438

The "QADERSO-V2-VM.zip" contains an RUU.  Again...  wait for LeslieAnn before changing tactics or keep going with the wire trick.

Sorry, I'm no expert on the wire trick, I only did it once. My understanding is that a stock based rom should work though.

If you can access recovery, it's possible to use someone else's backup. However it needs to be made without the WIMAX radio. Otherwise, the RUU may be your best option.

One other thing you could try is an older version of Harmonia. Try one prior to 3.10, in the second post of Harmonia. I would try 3.06a, 3.05 and 3.0.

One of them should work.

If you messed up on the wire trick and your stuck on that black screen.
You can reflash the boot.IMG that controlbear backed up for you using cmd
Move the backed up boot.IMG to your SDK-tools

Use this cmd codes while the phone is on that black screen
Cd c:/SDK-tools
fastboot flash boot boot.img

Your phone should now boot up normal

If I am wrong about any of this please correct me. Thanks

I'm sorry I didn't get back to this thread sooner. I found a solution -- actually, i went to the source. The irc channel related to J-bear gave me really great advice. It turns out my timing was drastically off.

Thank you for all your help. On to the next one.
