(How To) Recover from Flashing wrong Rom

Did you flash the wrong Rom (CDMA on GSM Phone or vice versa)?

Well don't panic (yet). Here is a simple solution that will generally have you working again in no time. First lets go over what you will need:

Tool Required:
1) Computer or Laptop
2) Access to your SD Card
3) Stock Carrier Rom (Or a CORRECT Cooked Rom)
4) Your Rhodium (duh, lol)

Now that you have all the tools you will need, we can get down to buisness.

Fixing that bricked phone:
Step 1) First download either the Stock Carrier Rom (SCR) or a Cooked Rom for your device

Step 2) Now extract the archive to your desktop and look for the .nbh file (This is the Rom)

Step 3) Now that you have your Rom it is time to rename it, Rename it to "RHODIMG" (Do NOT add the quotations and DO NOT add .nbh, it will add this itself. If you add either of these it WILL NOT WORK

Step 4) Now you need to put the RHODIMG.nbh file on the ROOT of your SD

Step 5) Now you can disconect from your Computer (assuming you connect to add the Rom Image to your SD Card)

Step 6) Now its time to enter your Bootloader. Here is how to enter Bootloader:

Turn off your device using the power button
When the device is turned off press the volume down button + Power button
Your device will startup in Bootloader mode


Step 7) Now on your screen you should see the words "OS" and "RHODIMG", If you see these two words, then Press your Power button to ReFlash your device.

Step 8 ) Now you will see a loading bar, once it is done your screen should say something along the lines of "Complete" and "Success".

Step 9) Now one of two things will happen. Either the system will auto reboot (some roms do) or you will hang at the success screen, in this case do a manual SOFT reset (via the button behind the battery cover)

This is all there is to it. You should now have a fully functional phone again. I have the Rhodium400 (Sprint) and I have personally used this method to fix an incorrect flash.

Hope this helps at least one person out there. Good luck.

Re: (How To) Recover from Flashing wrong Rom

your phone is never bricked if you can enter bootloader.

flashing any rom is not going to be a big deal UNLESS its a stock rom that includes the RADIO.

flashing the wrong radio can brick you in an instant.

Re: (How To) Recover from Flashing wrong Rom

Well true. However, I have seen MANY posts on MANY forums along the lines of:

"Help, just flashed wrong rom, what do I do"

So I am just trying to cut down on any posts like that and help out any newbies to flashing that have this issues.

If this does not help you then I appologize, but I am sure someone out there is bound to get some use out of this sooner or later, and if not, then thats fine to.

I would rather it be around and not needed, then have someone need it and not be able to find it.

This is a good write up....but you could have just summed it up with flash back to stock which is what we tell peeps and to do that follow this link which is stickied...

[HOW-TO] - - Flash a Rom or Radio and re-locking on your TP2 from the SD card

but I thanked you for taking the time to write it up...

Re: (How To) Recover from Flashing wrong Rom

Sorry if what I posted came off as sounding snotty.

I am just use to forums where "noobs" are **** on just for being new, no matter what. So I took it the wrong way.

Did not mean to sound rude or offended or anything.
