With reference to member "euqiddis",regarding "backup". He's absolutely right !!
So here we go, - Before doing anything, make sure you have thelatest HTC SYNC on your PC (get it from here).- Connect your phone to PC and sync all your data(contacts, media, docs...etc.)- Disconnect your phone, then uninstall HTC SYNC,but you must leave the drivers on your PC.
(i.e. Uninstall the htc sync program only, not thedrivers)
S-OFFing the Device
Downgrade to HTC Froyo WWE for AlphaRevX "nownamed: Revolutionary" (HBOOT 1.01.0001)It has been confirmed that AlphaRevX "Revolutionary" tool isnot S-OFFing wildfire (buzz) 2.2.1, with HBOOT 1.01.0002!Therefore, downgrading the HBOOT to 1.01.0001 is must for themeantime, to get an efficient S-OFF.Lots of people seem to be having issues when trying todowngrade their Wildfire from a carrier-branded version(HBOOT 1.01.0002) to unbranded WWE (HBOOT 1.01.0001).
So, heres a small package to help you do this.
Extract this package somewhere you can find it, like yourDesktop for example.
Step 1: run step1.bat from the package. This will downgradeyour MISC partition to allow for the RUU downgrade.
At the end, GoldCardTool will start up, to allow you to createa goldcard which you will need before starting Step 2.
How to deal with Gold-Card Tool:1. Switch off your phone, remove your microSD card.2. Insert the microSD card into your card reader, connect it toyour computer and format the card to FAT32 file system. 3. Insert the card into your HTC Wildfire and power it on. 4. Make sure USB Debugging is enabled on your phone inMenu > Settings > Applications > Development. 5. Connect the phone to your computer via USB and set themode to charge only. 6. Launch Gold-Card Tool on your computer and click GetCID.7. Copy the CID code from the text box and click the linkshown below that text box to open it in your browserwindow. 8. In the browser window, enter all the details required andsubmit that form. 9. You should now get an email from PSAS. Open it anddownload the GoldCard.img attachment.
10. Now set your phones USB mode to Mass Storage. 11. In Gold-Card Tool, click Refresh. 12. Select your mounted SD card from the drop-down menusaying HTC MMC:13. Click Load Goldcard.img and select the file downloaded inStep 11. 14. Click Patch MMC and your Gold Card will be created. Youmay exit Gold Card Tool once done.After you've made the goldcard, and patched it, continuewith step 2. Step 2: run step2.bat from the package. This will downgradeyour ROM version to HTC WWE Froyo for Wildfire(unbranded).If you get a Customer ID error while doing this, your goldcardis not working!Create a new goldcard and re-run step2.
* Steps: 1st You need to get to: http://revolutionary.io/ to downloadthe tool, and to get your beta key which youll get in a pop-up window in the same download page after you click thedownload link for (windows version).The beta key is a must; the tool wont work without it!Youll be asked to provide your phone serial no., typically itshould be something like HTXXETDXXXXX, and you can get itfrom: Settings --> about phone --> phone identity.
Now, do the following:1. Run latest version of HTC Sync on your PC and connectphone in HTC Sync mode and sync all your files. Remove HTCSync and not the drivers.2. Reboot phone.3. Settings->Applications->Development->Check USBDebugging.4. Run Revolutionary and connect phone to PC in ChargeOnly mode.5. Revolutionary should recognize your phone and show yourDevice Serial number.7. Type out the key in the Revolutionary tool software,keeping in mind the upper and lower case letters and pressenter (you can copy / paste the key).8. Revolutionary should start doing its job and youll get S-OFF
in less than 90 seconds.9. If it takes longer, just wait for the 15 minutes mark, ifnothing, then reboot phone and retry. (Some members got S-OFF after multiple tries)
