Thumbs up Guide To Downgrading, Reverting and Returning Touch for Warranty Repair/Replacement

Guide To Downgrade and Return Touch for Repair/Replacement


Okay so I've successfully downgraded 5 Bell Mobility HTC Touchs without have ANY problems whatsoever. I'm not saying that its foolproof. But many people had been PMing me for instructions so I thought I would just create a quick guide.

Refer to the "Dangers of Downgrading" sticky for reference.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS, YOU DO AT YOUR OWN RISK! I AM NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE DONE TO YOUR PHONE, WHETHER PHYSICAL OR INTERNAL.

1. Make sure your contacts and everything that you REQUIRE on your phone is backed up. (Pim Backup)

2. (VERY IMPORTANT) Downgrade your Unlocked to version ImCOkeMan's 0.41 Unlocker

3. Once you've done so. Remember to fully setup the phone to the dates (if you were using a sprint rom previously, remember not to let the customizations run ie. reset before it says "starting customizations in 3..2..1").

I'm not sure why but everytime I didnt set it up, it would take very long to start up after flashing the original stock rom.

4. One you've completed all the steps above. WITHOUT putting the phone into the bootloader install the STOCK BELL ROM 1.59.10a radio (Located in Stick under "STOCK ROMS")

5. Set up your system and confirm that your PRI and PRL have been reverted to original.

And thats it! We're done. So no you're not "screwed" if you install the gps update, but just be careful when downgrading. Don't do it unless absoloutely necessary in situations such as repair, replacement, or simply downgrading for battery life.

I hope this helps all you guys out there who were in the situation that I was in.

thanks guys.....I got it replaced from sprint without any issues...luckily the guy at the store didnt inquire/care about the test rom. But this is a good reference in case someone needs to do it. Thanks again,

This is wrong. You need to Downgrade to ImCoKeMan's 0.40 Unlocker in order to RELOCK your device if you're returning it to your carrier.

"Original 0.40 Version (mosty outdated except for "relocking" ability, also more dangerous than 0.41 and 2.31)
VERY IMPORTANT / Warning: If your carrier did not release a rom and you flash an exe of another carrier with the 0.40 unlocker you won't be able to flash ANY rom until unlocking again."
