If you've used Goggles Remover or made another change to your /system partition, you can revert to stock in the following way (warning: this will wipe your device):
  • Download the 1.19 stock ROM from here
  • Download fastboot from here
  • Extract the fastboot zip to the same directory as the ROM
  • Turn your G2 on with the action button held (fastboot mode)
  • Type 'fastboot-windows oem rebootRUU' (case sensitive, replace windows with mac or linux as required)
  • Type 'fastboot-windows flash zip PC10IMG_Vision_TMOUS_1.19.531.1_Radio_12.21.60.09b_26.02.01.15_M2_release_149459
    signed.zip'
  • Let this finish, then type 'fastboot reboot' and apply the OTA

You can also grab the OTA directly from here, put it on the sdcard as update.zip then apply it by turning on your device with 'volume down' pressed, selecting recovery, pressing volume up and power when the icon appears onscreen and selecting 'apply update zip'.

There's quite a lot of changes in the OTA... VISIONary still works thankfully! :)

Oh, if applying the stock 1.19 image it stops part way through and tells you to flash again ('please flush image again immediately'), do what it says - repeat that line. :)

There is a new radio but no new hboot.

No, it doesn't fix the unlock issue (or the fact rebelsims don't work).

This method worked perfectly for me. Native WIFI tethering - finally!! I may actually keep this device now. The HDH washed out colours are driving me nuts!

Nice one Paul - you are a legend! :)

I haven't modified my stock ROM installation. If I apply the OTA update, can I still revert back to the original stock shipping version? Even though the OTA doesn't disable VISIONary, I don't want to irreversibly update in case there's an exploit in the shipping version that may have been fixed by the update.

hi noob here, i used google goggle remover and want to update OTA. I know i have to put the original google goggles back on the phone in order to update but im a little unsure on how to do this. I read the first post buy im kinda scared I might mess the phone up. Any chance of getting a video up that walks us Noobs thru reverting back to the original Rom. Your help in this is really needed. Thanks for your time.

Update: tried carlit0z G2 method and worked perfectly, thanks so much.

this is what i did and it work

Download PC10IMG_Vision_TMOUS_1.19.531.1_Radio_12.21.60.09b _26.02.01.15_M2_release_149459_signed
(the link is somewere in this thread)

*then read name it to PC10IMG.zip
*Put it on the root of your sd card.
*Power down phone
*Power up phone holding Vol Down and Power button.
*Phone will boot into fastboot i believe and then it will look for PC10IMG
*It will ask to flash it you use the vol key and power buttons to do that.
*Once it done it will reboot the phone and all your data will be gone and your be back at factory setting.

Then just rename the ota to update.zip and flash via recovery.

*remover the PC10IMG.zip from root of sd card
* Get back into the fastboot on the phone (setups up there^)
*this time use the vol button to go down to recovery.
*Once at recovery hold vol up and hit the power button.
*then vol down to flash update.zip
