RUU Conversion

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is there a tool or a comprehensive how to, to convert a RUU (executable ROM update for example as official HTC ROMs are issued) to the update.zip format as required when in recovery mode?

:P

Extract the .exe and somewhere in there is a file named update.zip. That's your file!

Thanks guys (& girls if any) I extracted the main RUU.exe using Universal Extractor however out of that all I could see was the Data1.cab file. Universal Extractor couldn't open that file, in fact I haven't found anything to open it.

I did however work out how to access what's inside it, if you actually run the RUU it extracts the RUU into two folders in a temp directory (in my case under users......somewhere, can't remember right now). One folder is essentially the same as what Universal Extractor did, the other is the contents of the Data1.cab file.

In there there's a rom.zip file I'm assuming this is it? If I rename this to update.zip I'm assuming (again) it 'should' work? This file appears to be the right size (approx: 140Mg). Question is though by using recovery mode & the ROM in this format does this work around the bootloader problem? You see I'm trying to load the Telstra offical ROM back onto my rooted Desire, after having loaded ModaCo's ROM, more to the point though before I loaded ModaCo's ROM I loaded the official UK 3 ROM & it updated the HBOOT to 0.80!

Unfortuntely no matter what I try (by running the RUU exe) I always get bootloader error 140, I'm hoping this might be a work around?

That rom.zip is the update.zip file you need.

It won't downgrade your bootloader though as it will still check when flashing your bootloader version. :) Is the 3 UK one 0.80 bootloader as it will be useful for my unroot thread.
