Could you use this same method to downgrade to the shipping ROM after you've updated to the OTA update? It would appear that the OTA update is just a patch, whereas this ROM .zip is a full ROM.

Paul, any chance you can make an app that puts Goggles back? This would save a lot of users a lot of time. That was the only system change I made and it would allow me to apply the update without having to wipe my phone. I've spent hours configuring my phone and was hoping to just simply apply the update. I didn't realize moving Goggles would complicate the process so much and add so much time.

Also, I used Visionary to get full use of Titanium Backup just recently. I haven't tried restoring a backup from it. If I have to wipe, will this work the most quickly getting my phone back to it's previously fully configured state?

Thank you for your time! Awesome work!

Putting it gently, you should read the post and method already posted by Paul about how this is done. The method does not allow you to write anything to /system/, only delete. If we could write to /system/, we would not have any problems doing anything whatsoever, and everyone would be happy about being able to have permanent root and eMMC memory in the phone unlocked.

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'.

Hello paul,
This is what I'm getting while trying to revert back to stock:
assert failed: apply_patch_check("/system/app/GoogleGoggles,apk","8cd1dd995fca63cae2cacb578c54cb23747217be6","b733f4baafa4c2c5cb381efa4bcf1bae4217c695") E:Error in /sdcard/update.zip (status7) Installation aborted.

I've tried everything to revert back to stock to get the update but a can't get back to stock rom. Can you help??

This is the million dollar question. You cannot downgrade, as you get the error "FAILED (remote: 43 main version check fail) if you try to re-apply the stock ROM via windows fastboot. If you try via fastboot mode on the phone, it fails the version check. I think we would need a full ROM to be extracted and signed, which, I think, would have to come from whatever source Paul used to get this one.

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

Hey man can you help me.just got into the android scene. I dont know where to put the fastboot file and the other one. I tried your way but I can't get it to work. Can you please help. just explain every thing step by step and tell me what specific buttons to push..if its not that much of a problem. Thanks

You can now downgrade from the ota back to stock. That way when they get the emmc locked off of the old version you can downgrade and get it unlocked then flash recoveries and such, then flash custom ROMs. Details will be in this wiki: http://forum.xda-dev...itle=HTC_Vision

Thanks for the gentleman's response! Now I understand and so will others. Also appreciate the method described above for going back to stock without having to type commands into fastboot. Keeps it simple for us newbies. Cheers!
