Hi all! In this forum, I read some guides to root the HTC Legend and I want to do it, but I also read that guarantee is lost. I want to know if now is possible reset the HTC Legend to the original HTC ROM to get back my guarantee.

PS: Sorry for my bad English, but I'm not English! :(

run the RUU_Legned_HTC_XXXXXXX.exe

It'll extract some files to your temp folder, go there and keep the RUU program running. Find the rom.zip in the temp folder, copy it out, close the RUU program.

Go here

BTW: if your legend's USB is working, u just need to create the goldcard and run the .exe file, that would be done. If your USB was bricked, use those steps what I posted before.

I understand.. I already have downloaded the RUU file, but when I run it, I can't find the rom.zip in my temp folder. I only want to extract this rom.zip, so I can flash my phone and keep the root..

That's not the problem.. I know that when I flash the Ruu the root is lost.. That's why I want to extract de rom.zip and flash it with the custom recovery menu.. The problem is that I can't find the rom.zip on my computer when the Ruu executable puts the files in a temp folder. Can somebody upload the rom.zip from RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.5_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_126592_sig

ed.exe?

I now have the rooted 1.31.405.4 and the OTA update from 1.31.405.5 doesn't work.

1. Run the exe file (You don't need to connect the usb), the first step of it that is extracting the files to temp folder.

2. Don't exit the application (Because of if you click cancel or exit the application, those files would be deleted).

3. Go to the temp folder.

ex: C:\Users\<user name>\appdata\Local\Temp - For windows 7

4. Check the latest folders with named GUID.

Maybe can help your work. :)

Read this thread, please.

I was in the list. Re-do the step 1, and install the Terminal Emulator.

Hi,

I'm trying to save my phone by rebooting in my original RUU_Legend_hTC_Asia_HK_CHT_1.31.708.2_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_121966.

It's been 25 minutes, and stuck on 61% for a while.

Any ideas?

If anyone is having problems trying to do this. I was, and I was getting pretty pissed at HTC for breaking my wifi with an update, which causes the WiFi to go into a state of: "unable to start wifi"

The commands that where needed for me are:

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip rom.zip

fastboot oem boot

I got the extra reboot command from the rooting guide. Without it I got "update: not allowed" errors.

I installed a shipped rom version and now my WiFi works again! You guys are heros. And HTC can go to hell for all I care, still shipping that faulty update after 4 months.

Hello,

I rooted my Legend the way described here and am now stuck with 2.1, i. e. I can't upgrade to Froyo. When looking for updates, all my Legend shows me is the silly 1.31.405.5 (3.89 MB) update containing "improved HTC applications". But I can't even install that: after dowloading und "installing", my Legend reboots, shows the infamous red exclamation mark and then goes on without having installed anything.

So I guess that my problem is the rooting and as I would like to have Froyo installed there are two options to my understanding

- I can install one of the ROMs provided by Paul here or

- I can reinstall the original HTC ROM and then do an OTA update for Froyo

Actually I would vote for option two but am a little bit puzzled what ROM to choose from http://www.shipped-roms.com/shipped/Legend/.

My Legend currently shows the following version information

Baseband Version

47.26.35.04U_7.05.35.26L

Kernel Version

2.6.29-9a3026a7

htc-kernel@and18-2 #1

Build Number

1.31.405.4 CL154058 release-keys

Software Number

1.31.405.4

Am I right that I should go for

RUU_Legend_HTC_WWE_1.31.405.4_R_Radio_47.26.35.04_7.05.35.26L_release_123853_sig

d.exe

then?
