I just picked up my San Francisco! Findings as I go in here...

How can a man of your talents be out of work?! Preposterous. I think I'll be swapping my Pulse for this if smartsim unlocker works so I can use it on o2. I don't support you can test that Paul?

I don't have a SmartSIM, sorry...

I've been thinking about upgrading from the Pulse for a while and I was thinking about the HTC Hero PAYG from 3 for £150. Is it worthwhile paying extra £50 for the Hero in comparison to the Blade or the WVGA AMOLED screen make the Blade a better experience? The Hero should have some life left as it supported by CyanogenMod but this early kernel source release makes Blade's future look rather promising.

The Hero is a great device, specs wise the SF is superior, particularly as you say that screen...

Managed to 'adb shell / reboot recovery' into a conventional recovery image, now looking for the keyboard combination. :lol:

Rebuilt an insecure boot image and flashed it via fastboot (brave / stupid, you decide!)

It flashed OK... note that 'fastboot boot' returns 'OK' but doesn't actually boot.

The result of flashing the rebuilt boot image? Device won't boot any more. :lol: :)

Apparently so! :lol:

Ok I think this might be the same issue that affected the pulse mini. I know from the ZTE Racer that the boot image was a bit different to unpack than the pulse image and when repacking the image had to have some bytes changed.

See if that helps?

I'm pretty sure that's not the problem... if I unpack and rebuild the recovery image, it boots as intended. It's just the normal boot image it doesn't like, it's weird! :lol:

This is gripping stuff! I've been waiting for this to be released since reading about Project JAL back in July - really excited to find a hands on report of it. Rooting your new phone with it fresh out of the box? Hats off to ya!

I can't believe how fast this is moving. I reckon by the time my brother buys one of these (probably weekend!) Koush may already have Clockwork on it. I bet Paul will have a stock rom going on it too. Who knows what's next? Froyo? lol

Yep, i'm pretty confident saying I can rebuild images.

Just need @koush to fix a few things and I reckon we're pretty set for fun! :lol:
