Hi,

Filesonic isn't playing nice with me. I've downloaded the files from points 1 - 4 in the checklist without problems but I am not able to download the Patched Revolutionary Recovery Image and Updated Hboot from steps 5 and 6 respectively. I keep getting the message 'Download Error - Free users may only download 1 file at a time.' I've tried editing my Hosts file/clearing my cache etc.

Any kind soul able to help me out with an alternative link please?

I will be extremely grateful.

Thank you!

EDIT: Ignore please - someone has helped me out.

Thanks anyway!

the problem is that I can't make a gold card from recovery, I need to be inside android, right?

No, you don't need booting Android to make a goldcard.

Use this guide but use '/sys/class/mmc_host/mmc2/mmc2:*/cid' as the location for retrieving the card serial.

So your PC isn't seeing your device in recovery for some reason? That's a whole different problem. Check device manager etc. for missing drivers.

You can make a goldcard in any Android device if you or a friend has an Android phone.

Flash the Gingerbread RUU that matches your previously installed version.

P


Paul,

Need to clarify before taking the plunge.

Since I can't find the RUU for my 32GB 3G/WiFi Flyer, is it confirmed that GoldCard will allow me to flash to other RUU incase if I want to downgrade to GB?

Thanks.

Thanks. I have redownloaded but nothing changed. I guess, I will have to start all over again.

Edit: Checked MD 5: 16fe327f70c3036af69c19ec93b87e44, it matched. I will have to go back to flashing GB now and will try to start again.

You're not alone.

I tried to go back flashing the same RUU (previously installed GB) using goldcard but it's not working. :-(

You're in 'bootloader' mode not 'fastboot', that's all. Press the power button to switch to the fastboot option.

@Paul, Sir, many thanks! Never really thought of that. That easy, that I missed. Stupid, me. Just too eager to get HC installed not really thinking that I missed that (and I am not even aware of it! That I thought of flashing back to GB, good thing that goldcard didn't work.)

That power button --CWM worked and just installed HC and it's working really smooth.

Awesome! Got mine now in HC stock rom. Will flash your MCR later after am done downloading!

Again, thanks a lot.

:-)

Hello there,

I would like to get this all up on running on my flyer but I am a bit wary as I am not excactly an expert ( though have been flashing since my HD2 days)

I would appreciate if someone could explain something that is not completely clear to me. My Flyer is from O2 Grmany, rooted now with Revolutionary and running FlyHigh ROM 1.2G

My first Q is about the mentiond matching of RUU and ROM version.How can I make sure about that?

I still have a CWM backup of the original installed ROM the Flyer was shipped with from O2.

Thanks in advance for an aswer, very much appreciated.
