18 Nov 2.5.1.2 r2: ClockworkMod recovery for HTC Desire HD

90 posts in this topic

I'm pleased to present my ClockworkMod recovery for the HTC Desire HD (aka HTC Ace / HTC Spade). This recovery has been built and setup by me and is in no way endorsed buy Koush, so please don't ask him for support! :) I am still testing this recovery, so caution is advised and you use it at your own risk!

[*]From a command prompt (at the directory containing these new files!) run 'fastboot-windows flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.2-ace-modaco-r2.img' (subsituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)

** On my device I have to select fastboot from the menu options and press the power button to action, otherwise it sits at waiting for device, not sure if this is just me? **

[*]When this finishes, from the command prompt run 'fastboot-windows reboot' (again substituting 'fastboot-mac' or 'sudo fastboot-linux' as required)

[*]Done!

The changelog is in the next post.

Sorry if this seems pedantic, but I am new to the android scene, plenty of years on modding other mobiles inc WM6.5 etc and as this stuff is so new I just want to triple check the actions and avoid an expensive brick :)

Doesn't having ROOT imply S-OFF?

I have SU via VISIONary v12 and can run titanium backup and Clockwork ROM Manager...do I still need ENG HBOOT?

Ever so slightly confused but not wanting an expensive paperweight B)

you need ENG HBOOT if you flash ClockworkModRecovery r2 by paul

@Paul is it possible to release the vendor tree of the recovery?

I talked to Klutsh and he would build us a PS3Freedom version :-)

Isn't it possible to use dd command below when Android is booted up once we insmod "wpthis" module, without S-OFF?

dd if=/sdcard/recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.2-ace-modaco-r1.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p21

Yeah, that would work too! B)

P

(I am assuming that Paul's 'yes' was for Eddie1506's question :-)

So, without S-OFF HBOOT installed but with 'wpthis' inserted, does 'dd' work but 'fastboot' not?

I managed to flash 2.5.1.2 r1 successfully, but i tried upgrading to r2 and terminal (OSX) just stalls at "sending 'recovery' (4242 KB)" with r1 it seems to flash instantly, but r2 doesn't really do anything.

How long should it take to flash r2.Is there anything different i need to try?

Thanks

Mike

mmm.. I got my device rooted.. but can't get this one working for me.. (I know it's me who is doing something wrong as usual.. haha)

Anyway, should, by time, this Clockwork mod get itself done into RomManger as all the rest?

If so i'm more then happy to wait, and not risk bricking my device :-P

Paul,

Does your clockworkrecovery image include the 'wpthis' module?

If not, if it did, would the recovery be able to flash zips without having the S-OFF HBOOT?

If so then it would stop everyone asking 'whats S-OFF?' and 'whats HBOOT' on here, and remove the (small) risk that flashing HBOOT brings...

(ideally user would be able to run visionary which does wpthis, then run rommanager which installs your clockworkrecovery, then reboot into recovery and install zip)

Okay guys, I don't like to post unnecessarily without reading though posts, so I have had a good crack at this, and I am still a bit lost. I have root, I have S-OFF I have downloaded the new 'fastboot.exe' put it in C:\AndroidSDK\Tools\recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.2-ace-modaco-r2, I have opened up Command Prompt and typed as follows;

And that's as far as I seem to be able to get :P Am I just being obscenely retarded and missing something really basic?

I got in touch with koush today on IRC.

He told me that PAul needs to send his the board files, that is the source for his recovery so that koush makes an official clockwork build,

Paul could you send him those files?

Instructions are on his webpage

Thanks

Ah, I did try with the first part of the command but it failed to work, so I was just trying different combos, as you do... Lol. I have just had another crack at it and got it working by removing the 'Windows' and just typing 'fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-2.5.1.2-ace-modaco-r2.img'

Thanks for the help Eisteh. :D

Official support has been added in Rom manager with clockwork recovery 2.5.1.3.

You can upgrade over Paul's recovery.

Install Rom Manager and get the recovery from there.

Cheers
