Nicely done, sir. Should get a sticky, IMO.

Verizon sent me a replacement phone and I wanted to put the stock ROM back however the reason why I got the replacement was because my USB/power connector stopped responding. Is there any way of accomplishing what I need done to get it back to stock? I can still download the files onto the phone via WiFi - I can't run any of those commands.

Look up using adb over tcpip. There are apps on the market that can switch adb on the phone from USB to TCP, and then you should be able to execute the commands normally. Maybe someone can confirm, but I think this should work. Not sure if you can execute them through a terminal emulator on the phone itself.

Either way, make sure you check and double check the md5's before flashing anything.

Please be aware, this involves overwriting your bootloader, and carries risks. Please follow this completely. You have no warranty already, since your have rooted. If your phone breaks, your fault, not mine.

If you can not follow directions, don't use this guide.

Step 1, read the whole guide. Step 2, use the guide.

First, you need the original FROYO firmware.

PG32IMG_RUU_Vivo_W_VERIZON_WWE_1.34.605.4_Radio_0. 99.01.0225_2_NV_VZW1.92_release_182876_signed.zip
http://www.multiupload.com/73VYN7C9J0
30cb90e5c7c5f5ecb8a618fbbbdea06d (verify this md5sum, its important)

Rename this file as PG32IMG.zip, place it on your sdcard. Run this command:

adb reboot bootloader

You will be at the fastboot menu of the bootloader, choose the "bootloader" option and allow the zip to flash. If it doesn't start after a couple minutes, then you have the path or filename wrong (stop using windows, it sucks).


DANGER: Make sure you are restored to froyo using the above RUU, or your phone could be bricked with the next step.

Now, replacing the bootloader.

AlpharevX's modified bootloader prevents downgrades, normally this is a good thing, but in our case we want to downgrade it back to stock. Do not continue with this unless you have flashed back the stock froyo RUU above. Doing so will leave you with a security warning, not something you want.

Download vivowpackage.zip
http://www.multiupload.com/SAY02BDBH0

This contains psneuter (thanks scotty2!), busybox and our stock hboot.

Then push them to your phone and chmod them like this

adb push psneuter /data/local/
adb push busybox /data/local/
adb push hboot_0.97.0000_336906.nb0 /data/local/
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox

Gain temp root

adb shell /data/local/psneuter

Verify the md5sum of the new hboot

adb shell /data/local/busybox md5sum /data/local/hboot_0.97.0000_336906.nb0

Verify the output is affe3dc9abe9d3a8c8bb3ba0ee5176ac, if not STOP and download thepackage and repush them.

DANGER If this is done wrong you can brick your phone at this point.

adb shell dd if=/data/local/hboot_0.97.0000_336906.nb0 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18

Give the hboot one last check

adb shell /data/local/busybox md5sum /dev/block/mmcblk0p18

If the output is affe3dc9abe9d3a8c8bb3ba0ee5176ac, then you are done, all is good and you are done.

If the output is 188d033de9436bc35b5605cb8e0e8ead, you still have the alpharevx bootloader, start over.

If the output is something else, then STOP and find me on irc ( http://chat.andirc.n...nnels=#inc2root ) DO NOT REBOOT.

The code is right there:

In ADB, the following commands will copy the three files to the phone (make sure the three files are in the same directory from which you're running ADB):

adb push psneuter /data/local/
adb push busybox /data/local/
adb push hboot_0.97.0000_336906.nb0 /data/local/


These two commands set permissions on the two executable files:

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox


And this executes psneuter to gain root:

adb shell /data/local/psneuter
