Collection – CWM Recovery [WIP], Unsecure BOOT, ENG H-BOOT, And S-OFF for HTC Sensation

With the arrival of the HTC Sensation, members and developers who want the device started gathering all the tools required for cooking and modifying. XDA member Bin4ry placed a great thread where he collected many goodies for you to play with. You will find Unsecured Boot.img (gives you a root adb shell), ENG Hboot (enables more HBoot commands), and recovery files. All these tools should be used only on S-OFF devices. The recovery for the Sensation will be able to flash ROMs on s-off devices very soon.
Remember that this tools should be used carefully. If you did use them, please leave your feedback.

Hi,

this is a development & collection Thread. The PG58IMG.ZIP files can be flashed through SD-CARD in HBoot Mode. This works only for S-OFF users. If you don’t have S-OFF you cannot use the files. There is no way to get S-OFF on a normal S-ON phone now.

Unsecured Boot.img (give you a root adb shell):

ENG Hboot (enables more HBoot commands, not necessary for most users):
[thanks Rahan95 for dumping ]

I’m trying to get the CWM Recovery working. It would be helpful if S-OFF users flash it and report what’s working and what’s not. ATM we have a screen issue that i’m trying to fix. So it would be nice if you make photos and attach them to your post. Also please attach the 2 files:
/tmp/recovery.log
/tmp/log_bin4ry.txt

Continue to the original thread to find more.

The History of Flagships: Part III – HTC

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
