This is for ROOTED USERS. Continue at your own risk... but I think you already know that if you've been mod'ing your phone to begin with. If not, well... just be careful what you do and FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. If you make a boo boo I'm sure someone can help you fix it. :wink2: But lets just try to do it right and call it a day.

PG05IMG_MR1_no_hboot.zip - c64b4367086fff4f51ec3d5d766a0456

Bootloader (FLASH THIS LAST) Flashing this without first successfully flashing the previous link will cause a security warning.

abda920f3e159fb05c00d8c54a5b8768 - PG05IMG_hboot_1.4.0000.zip

Flash the above PG05IMG_MR1_no_hboot.zip to restore everything to stock + OTA but still will have the s-off bootloader.
Rename PG05IMG_MR1_no_hboot.zip as PG05IMG.zip, and flash through hboot.

To restore the bootloader, rename PG05IMG_hboot_1.4.0000.zip as PG05IMG.zip and flash through the bootloader. DO NOT FLASH THIS unless you are sure PG05IMG_MR1_no_hboot.zip flashed to your device, without any issues.

Thanks to jcase for the information and links.

i *think* you can flash mr2 overttop of a custom rom without a SECURITY WARNING but ive never done it,so try it at your own risk.

what i HAVE done successfully is pull the hboot from the MR2,flash it,then flash the hboot last just as reccomended with MR1 in the OP. i could prolly upload the files if anyone wants them(its easy enuff to modify on your own). saves the phone from having to OTA after your done.

since MR1 isnt the latest firmware and its going to OTA anyway,you could also just flash the shipping firmware(1.12.605.6- doesnt cause a SECURITY WARNING) and then let that OTA to mr2. simple unroot!

the revolutionary tool adds a permanent patched hboot that blocks other hboot flashing. feel free to flash whatever you want overtop of it,as it will block the hboot from being overwritten. ive flashed mr2 over it several times. after you have a stock unrooted rom and recovery youll need to use fastboot to put the new(stock) bootloader in place.

Okay I rooted my tblot off my mac, can I also unroot it off of my mac?
if you still have the plain old,1.04.2000 eng bootloader then yes.

the machine does nothing but download the files. you could download them with your phone if you want to and leave any computer out of the equation. just make sure you follow the directions. flash the rom first,the hboot second.

or just flash the 1.12.605.6 firmware if you want only 1 download/flash.

this is mr1,and wether you go back to this,or back to shipping firmware, youre going to OTA to mr2 when youre finished.

you would only use the android police method if you had a stock phone that you needed to go back to shipping firmware for some odd reason,since shipping formware is 2 MRs old now. you dont need to do all the adb command lines with an s-off hboot.

use the method in this thread,or just flash the shipping firmware( 1.12.605.6 shipping firmware ) either way youre going to have to OTA to mr2 when youre done.

if you want to return to stock without having to OTA, i have mr2 "no hboot" and "hboot only" files on multiupload you can use with the directions in this method.ill put up the links if the OP or anyone else has any interest.

I'm not sure if you can flash mr2 over mr1 without a security warning. If you want to try it,you'll assume that risk for yourself.

I personally feel restoring mr1 then flashing mr2 is an unneccessary amount of hboot flashing. Just let it ota... IMO that would be much safer. Or you're welcome to use my "back to stock mr2" files :)

I'm sorta new at this and I have to take my Tbolt back to Verizon to exchange for a new one, so my question is do I flash the second file through Hboot like I do for the first? Or is there a different meaning to flashing it through the Bootloader versus flashing it through Hboot?

Nevermind, answered my own question...

1)PG05IMG_1.70.605.0_nohboot.zip
md5: c2c61df561e8a74cd103f0b9b89d81d6
and
2)PG05IMG_hboot_only_1.04.0000
md5: 584a4cdc12658835cb2a7885e8e44fd2

if youve rooted with revolutionary,or flashed shadowmites hard patched permanent hboot,youll need to use fastboot to reflash the overwriteable 1.04.2000 eng hboot first.

then,same as the original directions.
1) flash #1(no hboot) first.

2) flash #2(hboot only) ONLY AFTER succesfully flashing #1.
