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

First and foremost you must be unlocked to flash any roms on your phone you can get the unlocker at this link http://rhodiumw.htc-unlocks.com/hard-spl.php Unfortunatly Due to the new process unlocking is not available via the SD card so you will have to find a PC if you don't have access to one.


If you are going to flash any of Cmonex's special patched radios you will have to be sim unlocked you can do this http://rhodiumw.htc-unlocks.com/ Again This has to be done with a computer.


now once you get that piece out of the way we can get to the fun part, flashing a new rom without the aid of a pc. Similar to the mogul days and touch pro days, I have found flashing new roms much more convenient from the SD card than from the PC that way I could let my phone download the rom and then flash to a new version while I am out and about. Another added benefit is to be able to keep multiple roms on your SD card so you can test one, but still keep your standby at hand and not be locked to your computer.

A pre-note to this process. Your SD card must be formatted fat-32 (not just fat) for this process to work. formatting your SD card will wipe out all information on it so remember to backup first!

This is actually a really simple process.

Step 0: READ THE WHOLE POST ESPECIALLY IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME!
make sure you turn off any over clocking as this has made the process function wierdly.

Step 1: find the rom/radio you wish to flash and download it
Step 2: extract the .nbh file out of said rom package (will usually be named RUU_SIGNED.nbh if the rom is packed in an exe use pocket rar to extract from your phone or 7zip/winrar from your pc)
Step 3: place rom on the root of your SD card (meaning not in any folders)
at this point you have two options I will keep the alternate path in green, If you want to use the app then skip the rest till you get to the green.
Step 4: rename the .nbh file to RHODIMG.nbh
Step 5: power down the device completely
Step 6: hold volume down and power (end key on the Verizon variant) till the screen boots into bootloader mode (red green blue screen)

Alternate path:
download the app here there is a full guide in that link, but basically you install the app, and run it, it will find all of the roms you have on the root of your sd card, and based on what type of phone you tell it you have, it will rename it properly, and even has an option to put you into boot loader.

Step 7: when prompted press power to flash
Step 8: wait for it to finnish, sometimes it will restart on its own, sometime you need to restart it yourself but make sure you wait for the flash successful screen.

That's all there is to it I will add to this as time goes on. Happy flashing!

re-locking is on post 3

Re: HOW TO: flash a Rom or Radio on your TP2 from the SD card

TROUBLESHOOTING:

most common causes are misnaming, (first timers forget that the .nbh gets hidden on their phone explorer and "fix" it by adding it and thusly doubling the extension "RHODIMG.nbh.nbh"

Second most common error is people make a folder called root when the root of the sd card means not in any folders.
next most common error is transposing the h and the o naming the file ROHDIMG.nbh

make sure you turn off overclocking.

The last thing if all of the above is not the cause is to reformat the sd card (but remember to backup the fiels first)

another thing a few people have done is enabling sd encryption (its a checkbox in settings easy to click and forget) this adds a .menc extension to the end of each files and will make the file not named properly AND make it so your files will all be lost if you hard reset and or flash a rom via another sd card.

Re: HOW TO: flash a Rom or Radio on your TP2 from the SD card

RELOCKING:
Step 1: Flash the stock rom
Step 2: **MAKE SURE TO READ ENTIRE POST BEFORE STARTING**
Step 3: make sure you have the stock rom on one micro sd card and the relocker on another or an sd card reader to transfer the nbh files since your phone may stop booting past bootloader after the next step
Step 4: flash the attached relocker like any other rom
Step 5: flash stock one more time.

attached is the relocker nbh to relock you flash like normal HOWEVER you will most likely get stuck in the bootloader (not be able to boot) at this point you only need to re-flash the stock rom and you will be back in order. razorloves keyed me into this working just like in my TP1 guide, I assumed based on what Cmonex told me it was impossible so I never looked into it further.
