    [HOW-TO] Fix ***SECURITY WARNING***

    So somewhere you went wrong and now you're stuck in hboot with ***SECURITY WARNING***.

    Don't worry, help is here!

    I am NOT responsible for any bricked devices. (Standard disclaimer)

    Both methods will wipe all data! (SDCard is safe.)

    ----------

    1st method - NOTcaused by an attempted unroot or an attempted RUU flash that gave main version lower

    You must have a battery with a full charge before doing this, please charge it until the front light turns green!!

    You must have a way to get a file onto the SD card. If you do not, contact me.
    First off, download this RUU http://goo.im/devs/trter10/PG05IMG.zip

    MD5: 013CBDD3A9B28BC894631008FA2148E2

    It is very important that you verify the MD5 sum. If you don't have a MD5 checker, here's one: MD5 Checker

    Once you get that downloaded and the MD5 sum verified, rename it to PG05IMG.zip (Make sure it is not PG05IMG.zip.zip, it's a good idea just to type PG05IMG in the name box because it only highlights the name and not the extension) and put it on your SD card.

    Then, put the SD card back in the phone and boot to hboot. It will load a file (Will take a few minutes.)

    If it does not, then you didn't name the file correctly, or you may have a bad SD card.

    Once it loads, press volume up to confirm you want to flash it. This will take about five minutes to complete, and your phone will power cycle once during the process. DO NOT interfere with the process, and let it do its job.

    Once it's completed, and it says "Update complete..." press power.

    Now, you must delete PG05IMG.zip from the SDCard.

    When you power it on you should be able to boot

    ----------

    2nd method - Caused by an attempted unroot or an attempted RUU flash that gave main version lower

    First, you will need to follow the directions to HTCDev unlock from http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/

    Once you're unlocked, you can now reboot into whatever ROM you were on.

    Now, download this ROM
    http://rootzwiki.com/topic/23371-stock-rooteddeodexed-21160519-rom/

    Once it is downloaded, copy it to the SDCard (Do not cut, we still need a copy of it on the computer) and flash the ROM through recovery, making sure to wipe data. Now, your phone will be in a bootloop. To fix this, boot the phone to fastboot and connect it via USB.

    Now, unzip the ROM (the copy that's on the computer) and put the boot.img in a folder with fastboot (Either from where you HTCDev unlocked or the Thunderbolt Tool's support_files folder)

    Once the boot.img is there, click a blank spot in the folder to unselect any files. Then, hold the shift key and right click the mouse. A little box will pop up. In that box, click "Open command window here".

    Now, a command window will pop up. You will need to flash the boot.img by the command:
    Code:
    fastboot flash boot boot.img <Press enter>
    It should say OKAY and OKAY.
    If it does, run the command:
    Code:
    fastboot reboot <Press enter>
    Your phone should now reboot into the stock ROM.

    Once in the stock ROM, go through activation and then go to Settings > Applications > Development and check USB Debugging and Stay Awake.

    You may want to charge the phone here if the battery is below about 60%.

    Now, download the Thunderbolt Tool (If you haven't already) and run it. It should ask you to S-OFF, so choose yes.

    (You can stop here if you want to stay S-OFF. If you still want to unroot, continue.)

    Once you are S-OFF and the phone is booted back up, run unroot in the Thunderbolt Tool.

    Once unroot is done you should be booting completely stock and S-ON

    ----------

    If you run in to any issues or have no way of getting the file on the SD for the first method, i can help you so feel free to add me on Google Talk: lukeafrazier@gmail.com

    Hi - Thanks for this. Is it OK to do factory resets and accept OTAs after this?

    This method works flawlessly. Took longer to download the file that it did to recover my phone. Trter10 is also extremely helpful if you aren't sure of when you're doing. Thanks again bud!

    Thanks for putting this together!! After I flashed the boot.img to the phone, it only gets to the Thunderbolt screen and then restarts over and over. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    Is there any way to do this without unlocking the bootloader because I keep getting an error message in the command prompt while trying to unlock the boot loader

    Are you on GB or ICS, if ICS the unlock tool isn't working yet.
