Hi,

I hex edited RomUpdateUtility.exe so it runs task 29 right after flashing ruu_signed.nbh

As every one understand this command format the rom,

Just unzip and run task29.exe . You may replace ruu_signed.nbh with the radio of your choice.

After the phone reset itself, your old rom will be gone, so it won't boot: binfs has been formated, your phone memory is clean.
You'll need to power up in bootloader mode (press vol down right after power key), then use the leocustomruu.exe provided with your favorite rom package, or flash it from memory card using standard procedure.

To try to keep the forums a little cleaner, we are asking that you ONLY start threads in the Upgrade forums that are to release a ROM, Kitchen, or Radio.

If you have a question about a specific ROM/Radio/Kitchen, then please post it in the appropriate thread.

ALL other threads should be the the device's forum (for example, those related to hardware, GPS, bluetooth, etc).

If you have a reg edit or tweak...if it applies to multiple devices, then please post it in the 'PPC Registry Tweaks' forum and list which devices its compatible with. If it is device specific, then post it in the device forum, NOT the Upgrades forums.

If you're not sure where to post something, then post it in the device's forum and a staff member can always move it.

Sorry if this is a noob Q, but... I have never flashed the radio on my TP2 because I am happy with stock one. If I use task 29 does it wipe the radio too? Will I have to find and flash the radio or go back to my stock USCC rom, which includes the radio, before flashing a custom rom? Thanks

I really think this is a good question. Maybe the op can make this a little more clear for some of us. Some may not want to flash a radio and so I have attached the exe that I found on the link that doesn't need a radio nbh. This is not from ME...I have simply attached.

if your phone is unlocked to flash roms you can flash any radio found in the sticky here but one of the sprint, it says which one...


you have to be security unlocked for that one...

but the others are good to go

no you can use the same one you have if you want.

if I can use the same radio, then this won't wipe out my Sprint radio?

For example, if I want to flash the newest MightyROM:

1. Flash Task 29.
2. Enter Bootloader Mode.
3. Flash MightyROM.

That's it? No need to flash a radio in this case?

Sorry if this is a repeat question. The answers I've read thus far are a bit confusing.

I'm being a very special person today. Let me put on my helmet and stop licking the windows LOL.

you have to add the radio to the task29 folder. the RUU_signed.nbh for the radio



add it then use the task29.exe

Well I did it! Don't know if it was quit as sanitary as your method but it worked. I downloaded the radio for my carrier and since it was in a exe file I just ran task 29, them installed my radio next, then put in my custom rom and all seems to have worked great. It sure saves a lot of steps over the flash dance!

Thxs for all the the help.:)

Quick note: the only version of task 29 that worked for me was in post #9 (maybe the others require you to drop in the radio).

MordyT
04-04-2010, 01:02 AM
The reason why is...the one in post 9 has a bootscreen. You didn't need to flash your radio with the one in post 29...since it flashes a bootscreen...

Could someone please provide a simplistic explanation of what this is fixing and what it really does to accomplish the fix? I sense that somehow when flashing, either with a too-large or 'bad' ROM, that we have hosed the phone in some way and this procedure fixes the issue. I've been through several threads talking about this, but none of them have a good simple explanation of what the issue and fix are really about.

I'd really love to read the actual poop on what this is.

@Srt4inSC: radio stays intact :)

secondly, you don need to have a blank nbh....you can have ANY nbh, if can be ur favorite rom.....every romutility.exe needs a nbh to run.....so thats the purpose of it.......
so
-if u have a full stock\custome ROM nbh, its big and takes longer to flash. but the result is the same
- if you keep a radio, it will flash faster as its smaller
- if you keep a blank nbh, it will be even faster as its blank!!! request one of the check to make a blank nbh. all they have to do is disable all EXT\SYS packages.....just keep the ROM stuff and the config.txt from OEM

Wait, if you use a rom nbh, the way it works is first it will flash the ROM and then it will try to do task 29. So it will be a waste of time, since task 29 wipes the NVRAM...where the ROM you just flashed is stored...

Unless there has been some success if making the RUU first call task 29 and then flash the ROM. Last time I checked they couldn't yet...

Which was the reason for my original question. If task 28 (through flashing stock rom) does one thing, and task 29 clears another area of the phone....is it over kill, or more thorough to perform task 28 then do task 29 prior to flashing custom rom?

yes, you are right, I mistyped. It is better to flash stock, but since it takes so long, task 29 is prefered. And yes (to the guys above me) it is a little overkill, but go right ahead. All that a custom rom does is flash a XIP/System/etc...so it clears the necessary parts...

After running the .exe how are you trying to get into bootloader? Vol down + red end/power + reset button under the battery case (and hold for a few seconds)? This is what I do and works.

Not doubting what you're doing, just checking the steps.







thanks alot i normally hit the vol down and the top button and that always worked before

Hey you all Im new to this flashing and rom stuff. When I run the task29 file does it come with a radio? Also what is a radio and how do I get it if the task29 doesn't come with one?

Check out the task29 explanation page Mordy put together...
http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=116920


Short answer, no it does not have a radio and if you use the .exe from post #9 it will not change or affect the radio you currently have.

I also have a newbie question, the radios come as .exe files, do i rename them .nbh or just drop it in the task29 folder as an .exe?

Dont flash radio unless you really have to. Most of the time, if the flash goes wrong, or you dont flash the correct radio, you get an expensive brick!

Now to answer your question. Open that exe file using 7z or rar, then extract the nbh file.

Hi, Know it has been a while since someone posted here. I have done all that has been explained here. Done the task29, and it boots to the touch pro 2 splash screen. I reboot into bootloader and reload a custon rom, but when it restarts it goes back into the splash screen and no farther. Is there something I am missing here and doing wrong. I have been at this for 5 hours. I have a HTC Touch Pro 2, and the bootloader screen shows SPL-1.00.olinex, so I know the HSPL worked. Any ideas or suggestions to help me out of this mess would be very appreciated.

download your stock rom exe from here (http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=91940), put your phone into bootloader mode and connect usb cable then it should say USB at the bottom of the phone screen, then run the stock rom exe

My guess is that you needed the radioo or slpash and loading stock gives you all.
You may want to check & update them, but I would not use update prl icon, rather check threads for best versions.
Now that you have your phone working good, dont let that past issue phase you as practically all cooked roms are better than stock :)

question. im google searching as we speak, cause timing is a factor and focusability is dwindling (ADDmeds wearing off) but the task 29 i am using only writes over the splash screen. (post 9 i believe) now would it be possible to dissemble the the .nbh file and change the splash screen? or would i have to completely assemble one through a kitchen? is the splash screen even kept in the .nbh file, or is it somewhere else?

this is normal for task29. the standard RUU utility (flashing software) looks for an activesync connection to the device to grab the device information, and since task29 wipes everything out there is no software. to bypass this, after task 29, you either need to flash from SD card, or put the phone in bootloader mode and run the update utility.

if you have a RHODIMG.nbh on your SD card already, you will have to push volume down to cancel that update and allow the current one to load.

i tried running task29 and it was successful only thing was that i got stuck on the TP2 splash so....
1) i downloaded the stock rom fromt he HTC site (couldn't find any rhodimg.nbh files in the threads)
2) extracted it using winzip i'm at work i can't install 7zip
3) renamed the nbh file to 'rhodimg.nbh'
4) loaded it onto an empty SD card
5) put the phone into Bootloader & started the install screen comes up w/ the progress bar
6) it goes from the following:
Bootloader - OK
Splash 1 - OK
Splash 2 - OK
Radio - OK
OS -
Update in Progress...
6) the bar is now full and still says it is updating for quite some time now

is there anything i did wrong that it is stuck on this screen?
should i just restart the phone w/o the SD card and hope it boots up?

BIG HUGE THANKS. I can't believe it has been over 3 months and haven't seen this before. It is true, it does seem to be slightly slower. Will do that soon.

So I assume, this clear our the flash "stock rom, HR, Cutom rom, HR, custom Rom " process?

Has anyone experienced a noticeable difference to say, YES IT DOES HELP SPEED UP OUR PROCESS.

Technically, the process SHOULD show a difference by being faster since more RAM is allocated properly, but I am worried that the difference is super tiny, that the process is not THAT necessary since no noticeable difference is witnessed.

Can anyone share their experience. No one really said throughout the 12 pages about how it affected their performance (positively) after TASK29 flash.

Well I don't think anybody actually have any scientific data or number to show the before and after result of task29. So I would have to say now that it's more of a personal preference as some would never even bother with doing task29 while others, myself included, would not go to a new ROM or upgrade without it. So in the end, I would say try it, and if you think it makes a difference, continue doing it...if not, just flash straight to the next ROM and clear storage.

Well my opinion is flashing task29 is much better than having to roll back to stock rom and then flash to your new rom (less taxing that is). Also to some it may provide a sense of comfort in knowing that you don't have any left over from previous rom or build.

activesync does not work with phone in bootloader mode. so, dont worry about that. Just connect the usb cable and then you should see it say USB on the bottom of the phone screen. then flash whatever you want.

Thanked again however need further clarification

From SD card:

Ok so to flash from my sdcard I unzip the rom and change the nbh file to rhodimg.nbh then restart and enter boot loader.

So how do I run Task29.

Are you telling me to remove the nbh file and press vol down plus shutoff button and it will run Task 29.

From Active Sync:

Unzip rom then remove nbh file and lnsert Task29.exe Run Rom Upate utility and it will flash Task29.exe is that correct

Im sorry im just a little confused. :dontknow: Please clarify.

this is how you use the task29 from post #9.
download the task29 exe to your desktop.
establish activesync connection with phone.
then open the exe.

thats it. same as you do to flash roms.

Ok guys, I think task29 killed my phone (TP2 Verizon)I was trying it for the first time and followed the instructions. I put the latest vzw radio on my phone and after task29, flashed a rom that I wanted (MaxSense Timberwolf).
Ok everything was honky dory until i tried to make a call. I got Network authentication failed errors when trying to access the net for data, and everytime I tried to make a call, even if it was to a known working number, I would get the operator message "the number you dialed is not a working number....."

Even after flashing back to the stock rom i still had the same trouble. So I called verizon and they said i needed to reprogram my phone manually. I was able to get thephone working again, but we couldn't get data back on. So they had to send me a new phone.

Long and short- My phone was fine until i used task29. I'm thinking i did something wrong, but i followed the instuctions as stated (I've flashed a million times before with no trouble). I like the idea of task29, but won't use it if it bricks my phone. Any idea what went wrong? or better yet, anyone know how to get this fixed? I still want to use the data on my phone if possible before the new one arrives :)

Long and short- My phone was fine until i used task29. I'm thinking i did something wrong, but i followed the instuctions as stated (I've flashed a million times before with no trouble). I like the idea of task29, but won't use it if it bricks my phone. Any idea what went wrong? or better yet, anyone know how to get this fixed? I still want to use the data on my phone if possible before the new one arrives :)
did you do a *228 option 1?

Yeah, that was the first thing i did. It says phones programmed successfully but I ended up having to do it on my own with the rep. and i still couldnt get data to work. I"ve done *228 opt. 1 several time since this started too.

whichever one works best for you. also, that question has nothin to do with this thread. if you want to talk about radios, ask in the radios thread.
those are unlocked radios for using US gsm carrier sim cards, so you must be security unlocked to flash those. Just makin sure you're not confusing them with the normal radios.

Do you need a radio in order to use Task29?

For example, I want to installes NRG latest rom on my TP2, so I run Task 29, then once it goes into bootloader, plug my sync cable in and run the newest NRG rom? Is it that simple? I dont want to change my radio yet, or do I need to ?

so, using the .exe in post 9 will keep my CDMA radio intact and just wipe everthing else out?

I just purchased a TP2 and want to install Mighty Rom, unless someone knows a better one for Verizon. Too bad NFSFAN doesn't make one... Anyway, the forum is poorly organized and I cannot find a definitive way to unlock the phone and install the new ROM. I'm assuming that this task29, or whatever it's called is the key. However, there are no complete instructions as to how to use task29 to unlock and install the new ROM. I do not know how to get into bootloader on this phone, nor can I find instructions. I have years of experience of ROM's on the Touch, the Touch Pro and now this. So far, this is seemingly the most complex and least explained. Please help if this is the right thread for such a question.

Task29 is a way of wiping your phone before flashing a new ROM. It helps with problems you may get if you just flash a bunch of custom roms. In the past, people flashed to a shipped rom to do the same thing. Task29 is faster and easier. It either flashes a radio or splash screen, and then wipes the memory that the ROM is written to. After it's done, you put the phone in bootloader and flash the new ROM. Bootloader is the same on the TP2 as the TP. Hold volume down and then press+hold the power button.

To use the task29 that flashes a splash screen (post #9 in this thread I believe), you double click Task29.exe and click yes/ok a few times.

I have created a splash screen for Rhodium CDMA with the original green/white theme...since the file in post9 includes the old Touch Pro 2 splash.

I prefer the white based splash since NRGZ now cooks a startup animation white based ;)

Guys, I'm trying to flash an energy rom. I did it once without running task29 and for some reason the camera won't run. I get an error message that says either the camera certificate is not signed or is missing a component. Try and reinstall the camera.exe file.

So I thought I would try to run task29 first and reflash, however when I run task29 I get an "error message 240, file open" message.

Does anybody know what's going on here? Am I doing something wrong?

Little Help please!

I do have OliNex SPL 0.85 installed.

Oh Great! I finally got task29 to run, now I can't get an active sync connection.

All I get on my TP2 is the AT&T starup screen or the boot loader.

What do I do Now? I hope I didn't just brick this thing!

You don't need an ActiveSync connection to flash. As long as the bootloader (tri-color screen) has USB at the bottom when you are plugged in via USB you are all set to flash...

this is exactly what task29 does---it takes virtually everything off of your phone---so no AS is on the phone any more.
1) DL the rom of your choice and 7zip into its own folder
2)run pagepool changer if you want
3)look for the file named RUU_signed.nbh
4)rename JUST THE RUU-signed not the extension to RHODIMG
5)copy this file and paste to the root of your Fat32 formatted SD card...make sure no other executibles are in the root---folders are fine.
6)pull the battery, put the batti back in, hold VOL down then hit power--it will kick you into bootloader and flash from SD
7)wait til you see it is finished, either pull the batti or red button reset---wait for it to configure


you've just flashed from SD


isn't AT&T a GSM phone-----do NOT FLASH A CDMA ROM

Thank you for all the help. This may seem lazy but is there any way to go into bootloader mode without removing battery cover. I had to return a phone because my back cover wouldn't stay on any longer after a few months of a flash addiction. I could just drill a hole at the reset button but I'd rather not test my skills.

Thanks in advance.

I mean yes nbut nyou have to take the back off to remove bat anyway. Just make sure you slide th back on instead of snapping it because thats the wrong way to do this bro. I dont know why sprint just didnt give you a new back vs. sending phone back unless you did more damage than that...lol.

If you're talking about bootloader after using task29, you just hold down the power button and volume down while task29 is flashing (or at least right before it gets to 100%). When it reboots it will be in bootloader. If you're talking about other times, you can use some programs to enter bootloader from WM. I've seen it as an option in some of the end-key replacement programs. I assume it's a mortscript or .exe of some kind, but I haven't looked too closely to see how it is actually doing it.

it was a touch pro, something about a change in manufacturers, who knows why they do what they do.

MWalt, Thank you. I'll try that. If I happen to miss my moment and it goes past reboot after a task29, I have to use reset button or remove the battery right?

Thought you all would like these stats, since I posted my pre-done Task 29 just over a year ago, it's had almost 8500 downloads and still counting. I don't think a day goes by without it being downloaded.

not only that, but if you look around, theirs actually an RUU based off of Ziggy's Task29.exe so each time you flash a ROM, it does it in the process so no need to do it separately each time...
