    Honeycomb (Android 3.2) for the HTC Flyer leaks

    A leak of the forthcoming Honeycomb (android 3.2) ROM is now available!

    The process of installation is certainly not for the faint hearted (with no less than 19 steps!), but the end result is a vast improvement on the Gingerbread Flyer experience with full Pen support throughout the OS, all the niceties of Honeycomb but with a sprinking of HTC Sense enhancement throughout!

    Hit up the Flyer forum for full details. :)

    So I am in revolutionary CWM c4.0.1.4 and pushed stock-hc-flyer-hboot_1.11.0006.nb0 with no problems but when I get into shell then run

    'dd if=/Users/curtismclaws/Desktop/HC/stock-hc-flyer-hboot_1.11.0006.nb0 of=/dev/block/mmclbk0p18'

    I get the error

    'dd: can't open '/Users/curtismclaws/Desktop/HC/stock-hc-flyer-hboot_1.11.0006.nb0': No such file or directory'

    Running Mac OSX Lion and everything up till now worked.

    HTC Flyer 16GB Wifi

    I'm almost there and am just wondering how to get through this point. NOTE this is the same location I used to push my file over and it did it with no problems.

    Generally the instructions were top notch. I might adjust them a bit like this:

    • You are now in a state where you must unlock the bootloader using the HTC tools - visit http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/ and follow the instructions (Flyer compatability isn't listed, but it'll work)
    • Run adb reboot bootloader after unlocking via the previous setp. If you don't you will find yourself in a continual boot loop
    • Flash your device's recovery with the patched-to-work-with-new-hboot revolutionary recovery - 'fastboot flash recovery revolutionary-cwm-4.0.1.4-flyer.newhboot.img'
    • Launch ClockworkMod recovery - navigate to the 'bootloader' menu then select 'recovery'
    • Flash the Honeycomb system zip by copying / pushing to sdcard (adb shell mount /sdcard && adb push stock-hc-flyer-system.zip /sdcard/). Be patient, it takes a while to get the file unto your sdcard.
    • Then using the on screen menus, erase data / cache using the on screen menus
    • Reboot the device and you should be done!

    Ok, so I missed this post and the part about running adb reboot bootloader after unlocking from htcdev would have been useful... So now I'm in a bootloop. Is my only recourse to wait until the battery dies?

    I got stuck in the bootloop too. If you haven't already, I think what I did was just keep pressing the power button until it powered off. Then, I went into the bootloader by turning it on while pressing the volume down button, then continue from there.

    I'm still sort of a noob, though I've had previous rooting and adb experience with the nook color. I did read this entire thread, plus the one on xda before I jumped into this because I had the US WIFI 16gb flyer, and I knew there would be no turning back once I got started. I'm glad I made it out alive.

    Do you have the Best Buy Flyer? That's what I have. You followed this guide step for step? I ended up getting out of the bootloop and finished flashing everything but when I rebooted it went back into a bootloop. I'm going to flash the European WiFi RUU since there's no RUU for the Best Buy version. I've read several posts that say it works. Then I'll start over again.

    Everyone with HTC Flyer Bestbuy Wifi only version and stuck with boot logo issue, this is what i found out.

    You need to have an SD card in your flyer. Insert an SD card, copy the zip file using the move method, install the zip file from sd card from recovery list, clean the cache and reboot.!!more questions

    Dears,

    Today, I've managed to make the HC update.

    Until the HTCDEV part, everything went ok, I didn't get any issue.

    But during unlock bootloader via HTCDEV, it didn't go as the website directed. When I entered "fastboot oem get_identifier_token", I got a msg like this:

    "... INFO [ERR] Command error !!! OKAY [0.007s] finised. total time: 0.008s"

    This wasn't normal according to HTCDEv web page, but I somehow went to the next step #15, 'fastboot flash recovery revolutionary-cwm-4.0.1.4-flyer.newhboot.img', again everything seemd ok.

    Nest step, clockwork mode - recovery THIS IS WHERE I GOT STUCK. When I "click" recovery on bootloader screen it goes to HTC screen and stuck there. I can get back to bootloader screen again by pushing power button long and then vol down - power; but I can no longer continue to CWM, therefore can't flash honeycomb syetem.zip.

    When power down and vol-down+power to access bootloader menu, switching between fastboot and bootloader, there's a quick screen (it passes so quick that I couldn't figure out completely) where it says PG41IMG.zip not found.

    So what do you suggest? What's that PG41IMG.zip? Can I continue further or shall I roll back to GB 2.3.4? If so, what's the best way to do it?

    Many thanks.

    Ok, at least manage to resurrect the device to 2.3.3

    I downloaded the PG41IMG.zip, transferred to the root of the MicroSD card and booted. At the bootloader screen, this time it installed the filen and then later asked me if I wanted to update. Said "yes" with vol- and it updated the system after 5-6 mins.

    As the installation ended, device opened but with 2.3.3 (Previous fw was Turkish ROM with 2.3.4 and with this 2.3.3, Turkish language was available only for Germany, Austria and Switzerland and not for Turkey.

    Anyway, it is working now as a brand new EU device :)

    Now I think I have to repeat all the steps again.

    By the way, your comments are highly appreciated not to face similar problems.

    EDIT:

    * Now the baseband has been changed to 20.3501 from 20.3504

    * Recovery mode completely gone, cannot enter to CWM

    * Still S-off

    * Hboot became 6.10.1002 from 1.11.1003 and cannot get back to old one

    I tried to re-install HC, but this time failed in radio writing, stuck there. Any idea how to re-install? How to get back to old HBOOT?

    EDIT-2:

    * Used RUU_Flyer_HTC_WWE_2.23.405.3_R_Radio_20.3504.30.089BU_3809.07.04.06_M_release_204108_signed if anything could revert back but only updated to 2.3.4

    * HBOOT same and still cannot go recovery (first a phone icone with green arrows appear than a phone icon with red exclamation sign shows up), no recovery or CWM, so cannot go anything other.

    I'm on the step where you need to unlock the bootloader, but the HTCdev.com page keeps saying that I'm not logged in even after putting my login in a number of times...

    After the step 15

    "Flash your device's recovery with the patched-to-work-with-new-hboot revolutionary recovery - 'fastboot flash recovery revolutionary-cwm-4.0.1.4-flyer.hboot0010.img"

    The flyer doesn´t boot anymore in recovery. I ca go to Bootloader or Fastboot. No adb possible. When I try normal boot, Fyler stucks in White Htc logo.

    To run ruu for going back to GB is not possible because I get an Error "Battery less than 30%" after charging the fyer all night

    please I need help guys.

    thanks a lot

    in comparison with stock-hc-flyer-system-3.41.405.1.zip 491,597 MB

    and isn´t there after step 18 in the instructions a step missing?

    install zip from sd card?

    • Hey!Any fellow motorcycle riders here? I just watched this video about Big Ear filtered custom motorcycle earplugs and I want to know if any of you here tried their products. I'd love to get myself a pair but I want to know if they're great first. Any other recommendation? Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74-CvPzyW48&t=5s
    • Hello! This is my first post here. Glad to finally join this community.
    • I dabble in pretty much every bit of tech out there, but there are two bits of tech that really interest me and I’ve never yet got involved with. The first is 3D printing (I still haven’t gone there, but I feel the time is coming) and the second is laser engraving and cutting. I’m not sure what the fascination is with the latter for me (maybe it’s the ‘freaking laser!’ factor), I’m not particularly craft or artistic, but I’ve always just thought the ability to engrave artwork onto stuff is fascinating. With this in mind, when I was asked if I wanted to review the Flux beamo, a new Kickstarter project looking to democratise laser engraving and cutting, I just couldn’t say no! Flux? Who? It’s probably worth starting with a few words on Flux themselves. Of course, when backing a Kickstarter project, the first concern is often ‘am I going to see the product I’m backing’? Thankfully, Flux has a solid pedigree in this regard so for once this is a Kickstarter you can enter with confidence. Taiwan based Flux was founded in 2014 with the goal of making 3D printing accessible to all. $1.6m of Kickstarter funding later saw the release of the critically acclaimed Flux Delta, a modular 3D printer that combined laser engraving and drawing. So what is the beamo? The beamo laser cutter and engraver packs a powerful 30W CO2 laser into an impressively small footprint that’s barely bigger than 4 sheets of A4 paper. It weighs in at 22Kg and it’ll fit in nicely with the most compact of homes or offices, not least because of its smart industrial design. Utilising the classic Flux approach, the design blends cutting-edge technology (pun intended) with impressive approachability, quality and functionality. While it might look like a well thought out consumer product, Beamo actually includes features only normally found in industrial-grade laser cutters including closed-loop, maintenance free water-cooling, a 1,000 DPI laser that is smaller than the width of a human hair with 0.05mm layer depth, an optional rotary add-on for engraving curved objects and even an optional diode laser and CO2 laser for improved cutting speed and efficiency. But what’s it like? By far the best way for me to review the beamo is to talk about my experience as a complete engraving / cutting / 3D printing novice. Honestly, it couldn’t have been any more straightforward. The machine comes well packed in a huge box with everything you need to get started included. Take the beamo out of the box, plug in the Wi-Fi adaptor if required, affix the extraction hose to the back with a jubilee clip (it’s just like a tumble dryer hose), plug it into the mains and turn it on. It really is as simple as that to set up. At this point the huge display on the right of the device (which looks to be Raspberry Pi powered by the way!) springs into life and you’ll quickly arrive at a straightforward touchscreen UI for controlling the machine. From here you can configure Wi-Fi details or view the Ethernet connection details, which will provide you with an IP address you’ll use to connect from your PC. On your PC or Mac you’ll need to download the Beam Studio application which connects to the beamo using the IP address displayed on your machine. A standard sample print is included (together with a small piece of wood in the box, a lovely touch!) to let you quickly and easily see the machine in action. It’s rather impressive! The sample project loads up and has a beamo logo set to engrave and a circle around it set to cut. When kicking it off for the first time and seeing the engraving in action, it’s incredibly cool and exciting, but when it cuts – wow, that’s when it really gets taken to the next level. This thing is AWESOME! After trying the demo project, setting up your own is incredibly easy. The Beam Studio app can import all types of files (including bitmaps, not just vectors), it can convert to monochrome or grayscale and it includes a wide range of presets for different types of materials. After starting the job, the display on the machine itself helps you keep track of progress and there’s a handy ‘abort’ option on the touchscreen display should things go awry. The beamo can engrave and cut cardboard, wood, bamboo, leather and acrylic and engrave fabric, rubber, cement (!), glass, stone, anode metal or stainless steel (with the diode laser). I’ve been a bit of a maniac and shoved all sorts of things in the machine from phone cases to Moleskine diaries to wallets and its handled everything with aplomb. It’s so easy to use and fun, you won’t be able to help yourself.  By far my favourite beamo feature is its built in camera. This allows you to take a picture of the bed with your material in place to allow you to perfectly align your image and ensure that things get engraved or cut in the correctly place. The only other action that needs to be completed before kicking off the job is focusing the laser, which is as simple as raising / lowering the laser unit against an acrylic guide (an autofocus mod is available for an additional cost). The reviewers guide for beamo suggested keeping a fire extinguisher nearby was a good idea, which makes sense, but on the whole beamo is designed to be as safe as possible. All fumes are vented out the back by a powerful fan and the machine pauses immediately if the lid is opened.  Should I buy a beamo? The $849 cost of entry for beamo is no small chunk of change, but my word, what a machine you get for your money. You’ll quickly find yourself inundated with requests from friends to engrave things and you’ll find yourself looking at everything in a new way with a ‘does it engrave’ thought in your mind. Flux have done an astonishingly good job of making laser tooling available to everyone and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend adding the beamo to your arsenal. Head on across to Kickstarter to back the campaign! View full item
