Downgrading from Froyo OTA

Recommended Posts

If (like me) you got flashed the Legend Froyo OTA and now you can't downgrade, you can do the following..

- Follow this guide to the end (the last stage will appear to have failed)

- Temproot with VISIONary r13 (install the downloaded file as per a normal APK)

- Once you are temprooted, connect via 'adb' and do 'su' (to get root) then '/data/local/flash_image misc /data/local/misc1-2.img'

You should then be able to downgrade in the normal way.

You try this at your own risk... I successfully did this on my device, but of course YMMV. :rolleyes:

Thanks A LOT. I'll try now

I'm totally depressed since yesterday with this dirty ROM.

Does the crackin.bat works for you ?

Edit:

Crackin.bat display a lot of error but the downgrade works. You canno't know how I'm happy ....

I have hboot 1.00

but this cmd line stuff is way beyond me sorry :-(

can anyone give me idiot proof guide to this cmd line prompt stuff, press by press copy and paste style? PLEASE!!

"Have adb in your path, or move the files contained in hack4legend-v5.zip into your sdk/tools directory so your pushes will work properly.

Open a terminal window in your /tools/ directory. Type this at the prompt."

i don't understand!

I have rooted 2 legends that were hboot .43 but that was just clicking bat files etc

So i can connect to pc fine, adb works but this in your path stuff... maybe i'm too old! (at 36!)

thanks in advance.

thank - i found that but this line is probably my problem!

"...you should have root privileges now (showing #). Next thing is backing up misc partition and replacing it with one from hack4legend-v5.zip. Extract this zip somewhere and fire another command promt there. Now you should upload flash_image binary and misc1-2.img:"

fire another (i guess that means cmd again - now two black windows) but what is "fire another command prompt there" all about?

thanks!

after the chmod 755 line it just repeats it but should there not be more feedback?!

where should i save the hack 4 legend file exactly?

thanks!!

Ok, i did it - the lack of "feedback" on the cmd is normal it seems.

Thankfully i won't have to do this again for any more phones as i can't quiet remember how i fixed it, altho i did remake the goldcard (which worked fine on two other phones).

thanks for trying Qz3m - much appreciated

Yes I remeber I had the same doubt because the lack of feedback in cmd, but it worked, so I didn't bother any more:). I'm glad you've succeeded.
